DNS Pointer?
How to

Msg#: 4184357 posted 6:18 pm on Aug 9, 2010 (gmt 0)

I need to create a record on my internal DNS server that points internal users to www.example.com/newyork when they type in ny.example.com internally.

Does anyone know how this is setup. I'm sure it's simple.

[edit reason] Example.com is a domain that no one can own and we avoid mentions of member's domains [/edit]

What internal DNS server are you using?

It is a matter of creating a A host entry name for ny pointing to an IP address.
You would probably also have to set up a host header on your web server to point ny.exmaple.com to the newyork folder.
