I need to take part of URL out of Sonicwall SSL-VPN webpage...

we have a Sonicwall SSL-VPN appliance that will allow you to use a website to connect to the LAN (on a limited level) instead of VPN software.

However, if you are going to a internal webpage it will display in the url bar:

https://vpn.company.com/cgi-bin/nph-htprp/http://www.website.com...

instead of the normal:

http://www.website.com

Is there any way for me to strip out that part of the URL so that it won't effect the locations/paths of images, etc?
I know you can use things like a search/replace filter, but this isn't all happening on the web server, the URL having that strange bit filled in is because of the Sonicwall VPN appliance.

I'm hoping there's still a way to strip out that part of the URL.

Are you using NetExtender or are you using proxied bookmarks from the Sonicwall Virtual Office ?

using the bookmarks from the virtual office. So when you click on it, it will fill in the 'vpn.domain.com' in front of the actual URL it's going to. I haven't tested it with the NetExtender, but since that can be run without logging in through the website after you have installed it, people can easy just open up a browser and go to the URL themselves with the NetExtender.

With the Sonicwall SSL VPN bookmarks, it is basically using itself as a go-between your private network and the Internet.   If you were to remove the front part of the url, it would no longer work for accessing an internal resource.

We have a similar situation in that we need remote VPN users to be able to access internal web based programs.   My solution was to use Netextender-- you can set it up to run automatically when a user logs in through the web interface so you can keep the ease of connecting and current procedures.   This works like any other VPN client in that your users will have direct access to the network resources you allow, and you'd be able to use any URL you can use internally without having the sonicwall acting as a proxy.
