RWW A record


#1

Hello:
I am trying to set up an A record so I can access our company’s server with RWW by name instead of the need to enter the IP address. At this point I can access the server fine as https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/remote. I want to access as https://domainname/remote. Am I correct in assuming that all I need to do is setup a sub domain, say ourcompanyserver.net, then create an A record for that sub domain to point to the IP address
Thanks

go to https://panel.dreamhost.com and login.
select Domains and then Manage domains.
Locate your domain and click “DNS” for the correct domain name.
the second section down allows you to add the custom A record.

You will actually access this server as https://remote.domainname because what you are actually doing with the A record is creating a sub-domain that is managed by the server at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
