External IP address intergarted IIS website

Posted on 2007-08-10

I have a website developed in .Net 2.0 and this application  has some web pages needs to be accessed via anonymous and some web pages accessed via integrated security.

I have setup the wesite in IIS with one website and 2 virtual directories one with anonymous and other intergarted, so whenever user need to access intergarted web pages the web page redirects from anonymous to that intergarted virtual directory.Everything works fine when accessed within intranet.

Now there are some users sitting on top of awin network in frankfurt , who cannot resolve our domain address, so our network guys sent our ip address for them make an entry into their firewall and assign a host header which they can resolve to. The webpages which are part of the anonymous virtual directory do not seem to have any issues but when it hits the intergarted web pages under the integrated virtual directoty it asks for user name and password (this is fine) and upon giving those details it errors out with dns error. Any ideas why this would happen?

    Is the username  and password a form based entry or is it windows based authentication popup? Can they provide the exact error so you can paste it here?
