Hi, we recently purchased francisproperties.org through your organization to use in a DirectAccess deployment so that the business owner can telecommute into work. We would like to point this domain to our static internet public IP address (173.14.72.122) in order to facilitate connections to our onsite DirectAccess Server. Can you help, please?

I see this record on the domain already with a host name of da. Is that correct? If not, please get the correct host name from DirectAccess and let us know, or you can edit it yourself on the domains tab under Advanced DNS settings.

I would like "da.francisproperties.org" to point to our ISP assigned static internet public IP address (173.14.72.122) at our office. It looks like I managed it with an A record. 

"please get the correct host name."

This is something you input into DirectAccess. You can't just get it automatically until it's been configured. Which I'm attempting to do.

Can I assume that I've correctly inputted the information over there in "advanced settings" required to have da.francisproperties.org point to 173.14.72.122?

Yes. da.francisproperties.org should be pointing to that IP now, but you seem to have also redirected www.francisproperties.org to that IP. Did you want that?<br>

"Did you want that?"

Guess not. I think I just changed it back.

Thanks.
