Hi all

I have a frustrating one here.  I am trying to publish websites, which with IIS work fine usnig default.asp pages to redirect them to subfolders.  for example

www.publicname.com redirects to www.publicname.com/owa

What I am trying to do is publish my Remote Desktop Services webpage through Forefront TMG.  Internally I have a redirect in the default.asp page that redirects

server.local to https://server.local/rdweb

That works great, and I can publish that fine using forefront, however in forefront it only publishes the root and so I have to type in /rdweb on my public page.  I hope I have written that clearly.  its taken me ages of trying to bring me here.

You have to use path mapping, right click the publish rule and select the paths tab, i will post a screenshot for you.

Hi ya.  I can see where the paths are, however even though the path mapping is set, I still have to type /owa and /rdweb?  A screen shot would be great :-)

I have just worked it out with your help.  Many many thanks, you have no idea how that was frustrating me.


So, what I have done is a mapping for

External path / to internal path /owa and its redirecting.  Excellent :-)

Hi Simon.  Any change I can have a look at that screenshot.  While I am able to redirect the paths for Remote Desktop Services, and it picks up the default.aspx file, I am getting

12202 Forefront TMG denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL)

Scenario 1

the external path is set to / and the internal path is set to /rdweb

so I type in domain.name and it redirects it to domain.name/rdweb with the error above

if I set external path to <same as internal> and then internal path /rdweb/* and go to address domain.name/rdweb it works fine.  What am I doing wrong?  please :-)

Like I said, I would try setting internal path to /rdweb/* and the external to /*

That should be it.

Hi Simon

That worked great however the icons wont display on the remote webpage, I just get rex crosses as though it cant find the picture file.  In the end I set up a normal publishing rule, then above that, I set a copy of the rule, removed all the paths, set / to redirect to /* and then set a deny access and a rediret to the correct /rdweb folder.  Works a treat.  thanks for your help.
