If you run a local DNS server, and have all computers in the school use it as their DNS server (which is likely the scenerio) then you can create local TLDs (top-level domains) as you please, as far as I know.
If you're running a local UNIX server, take a look at the BIND documentation. If you run an NT server, look for the Microsoft DNS documentation, or switch the NT box from MS DNS to BIND for NT. Familiarize yourself with DNS domain setup... With an intranet, you can do lots of things with DNS that you couldn't with the Internet. -----Original Message----- From: Ali Nayeri [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Sunday, December 02, 2001 8:04 PM To: PHP Database Mailing List Subject: [PHP-DB] Intranet Server Hi all, I'm not sure if I should ask this question in this group, but since I'm using PHP in the process, I thought someone might be able to help me. Anyways. I'm in charge of creating an intranet webzine for my school and I've been working on the server-side for a while. I want to know if there is anyway that I could map the IP of the server (internal IP on the local network) with a name like http://intranet/ and have sub ips like http://math.intranet/. I tried reading about DNS, but it seems that it only works for internet addresses and involves registrations of a domain name. Has anyone done this before? If yes, what are the system requirements and is there anywhere that I can learn how to do it. Thanks in advance, Ali _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
