Got DNS entries set up right? – James Love Dec 26 '11 at 18:21
DNS entry in local server or company network server? – James123 Dec 26 '11 at 22:39
Either, but company network if you want it accessible across the network. – James Love Dec 26 '11 at 22:42
If I want access from local server (sharepoint installed server) and my local desktop? – James123 Dec 26 '11 at 22:43

Make sure you have a Dns record set for the URL to point to the sharepoint server on your company dns server.

Eg an A host record mysite.mycompany.con points to

Then Dns entry will send requests to your sharepoint server, and iis will pick up the host header and point to the correct web application. Add a binding to iis and include the host header.

You also need to configure your alternate access mappings in sharepoint central admin.
