I have an intranet server that is also a DNS server, that has its own IP set up as a Host (A) record with the name 'foo'.
I then have a wireless router hooked up, and a laptop, and an iPod. The laptop connects and can go to 'foo' in a browser just fine. The iPod connects and can hit the internet and the intranet server by IP address only--type in 'foo' and it never connects.
I tried manually editing the settings on the iPod so instead of the wireless router acting as a DNS server (it then just forwards DNS requests to the intranet server), it used the intranet server as a DNS server directly. Besides not having to do that on the laptop, it didn't seem to have any effect.
How do I get it to connect? My intranet app needs to be accessed by name in some places, so direct IP access won't cut it.
