Publish website with ISA 2006

Hello,

I am publishing a website with ISA 2006. It is working pretty fine. However some of my published web pages are redirected to an outside webserver. This outside webserver allows only the public IP of my ISA server.

When people access my published website it works but they cannot access the pages at the outside webserver. I have changed in ISA: "Request appears to come from ISA server computer" but still no luck.

Do you have any idea on how I can solve this?

Many thanks
S.

Lets call the outside server www.exwebserver.com for this example.

First, create a new public A record (exwebserver.yourdomain.com) and point it to your ISA Servers' external IP.  (You can also use any existing A record as well.) Then create a new web publishing rule in ISA and publish the outside webserver (www.exwebserver.com) using our new A record with "Request appears to come from ISA server computer"

Anyone on the internet should now be able to browse www.exwebserver.com using exwebserver.yourdomain.com now. All you have to do now is to modify your web server code to reference this new url.

Thanks,
Raj

When the published website is redirecting, it is actually telling the client browser to go to a different server. Once the client receives the redirect request, it will then try and connect to it directly. One workaround is to modify the published website's code to pull data from the third party server and then present it as it's own. You can use cURL in PHP for this, not sure about the ASP equivalent.

I am afraid there is not much you can do with the ISA server. (I can think of a possible workaround, but it is a little complex)

Thanks,

Looks like IISProxy is the ASP equivalent.

Unless slimard objects, I will recommend splitting points for #24270112 and #24269535 as possible solutions.
