Change SPS extranet access from IP to FQDN

  Asked By: David    Date: Nov 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1434

My hardware person set up SPS extranet for our remote users on a
hosted dedicated W2Kserver with an IP address.
>> We want to have the users access SPS by subdomain
>>How we change access from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. to
Sharepoint.ourconame.com (btw, 'sharepont' is not the pre-assinged
server name provided by the hosting company)
none of the literature seems to shed any light on this?
