A customer of mine wants a user to be able to type "http://intranet" into their url and have their web application load. typing their web applications is rediculous because the url is nonsensical, I don't know how that happened. I am not a Network Engineer, and don't know how to do this. They have created the DNS forward lookup "A" record for "http://intranet".
Bonus points if you can explain a little bit about what is going on behind the scenes :)
