I am on my office network, trying to access our Intranet via iOS Safari. Our Intranet URL is http://Intranet/ (no domain or prefix). Safari never opens this. Is there a way to get to this address on an iPad?
I went into Settings > General > Search Domains and entered our domain name and now I can go to http://hostname/
If this is the solution, I guess I need to figure out how to set this setting in DHCP.
Try going to http://intranet./ (with a dot at the end of the hostname to make it absolute).
The answer that 'supa' gave was right. I checked my dhcp-server settings and added scope option 15 to push the domainname to clients. If the device was connected in the past you have to clear the 'Searchdomains'-setting. Then back to wifi-settings, when recconnected the setting should be ok. If not, completely erase the wificonnection and reconnect.
If the device was never connected before it works instantly.
