I am quite new to sharepoint and like what I see so far, but I am having major problems getting a site by a domain other than http://computername:portnumberto work for me.
For example. Lets say my computer name is sharepoint server and I want to create a web application and collection by the name of mysite.mysite.com. The mysite.mysite.com site creates fine and shows up in IIS fine. I create a host file entry
for mysite.mysite.com and point it to my server. When I try and browse to the site http://mysite.mysite.com I get challenged for authentication. If I ping the site it is pinging the correct server. I put in the correct username and password, but
I am unable to login. If I create a site that is just the computer name and a random port number I am able to log in.
I figure I am missing something simple, but I have tried to research this for several hours and have gotten no where. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I would also like to add that I would like to make serveral sites that are running over port 80 by using host headers...if that changes anything.
