Detect company internal network with web script?

206 Views
Last Modified: 2010-04-16
I have a .htm file as a signature file in MS Outlook.       I would like to customize it so that it would display differently when sent to colleagues (on the same internal network), or sent to external parties.

I can handle the scripting of the display, but I am stuck coming up with a test that would determine whether the reader is on the public internet or on my company's internal network.        I suppose this may be a common issue:    how is it normally handled?

Assuming I have an address of a page that would only be accessible to internal users.        Essentially I want to attempt a load of that page, and use the result to determine what content to display.      However, even for internal users, I do not want to display that page.

Any suggestions?       I am more comfortable with vbscript, but should be able to handle javascript if necessary.

          thanks,
                    PvBredow
