Is there a way to "set up" a web site in IIS, yet have PD sites tied to that
domain name?

I would like to allow people to come to my domain name (ie,
www.mycompany.com) without a PD mapping. These people could surf around
some static HTML pages and then choose to go to one or more PD applications
from one of these static pages (ie, www.mycompany.com/myapp).

So far I have not been able to do this.

When I set up a web site in IIS, then I can assign up a default home page to
my domain name, but then IIS cannot resolve the PD mapping. If I delete the
web site in IIS, then I can get to the PD site with the domain name + PD
mapping but I can not use the domain name by itself to access a default
company home page. Is there a work around for this problem?

Thanks.

Actually, this might be easier than you think. I use IIS and PD. I
modified the "welcome.htm" file that is the standard IIS default web page so
it displays links to a few PD web sites I have on the server. So,
www.mycompany.com goes to the welcome screen. The links point to
"/myapp/contents.stm" or "/myotherapp/contents.stm" directly.

Let me know if that's what you've already tried and are having trouble with.

Mike,

Thanks for the reply. What you described is exactly what I tried. If I try
to create a web site in IIS Site Manager using my domain name, then IIS
doesn't recognize my two PD sites. If I delete the web site in IIS then PD
works again! It's like once IIS knows about your domain name it isn't going
to hand over control to PD via the PD mapping.

From the other posts to this news group, it seems that the recommended
approach is to NOT create a web site in IIS. The recommendation is to set
up a PD mapping and bring the IIS services down and up again.

Did you actually create a web site in IIS linked to your domain name?

I had the same problem and my solution was to create a redirect script in IIS
default page like this:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>pdredirect.htm</TITLE>
<BODY>
<P>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!--
function redirect()
{
window.location = "http://www.mycompany.com/Site/index.htm"
}

setTimeout("redirect();", 0)
//--></SCRIPT>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Hope this helps.

Joe
