Coldfusion9 with IIS 6 - redirection not working
Posted on 2011-05-11
I tried asking this but got no replies. Maybe someone has had this issue and can help me out. I've installed CF9 with IIS6 on a windows server 2003. Everything works fine in that I can type in the url of the website in my intranet and access it. The problem arises when I'm dealing with redirects. Here is the process:
1. I have a page(mypage.cfm) that checks to see if there is a security cookie set. If it is not, then it redirects to a company server(checksecurity.cfm) that authenticates the user, sets the cookie and then redirects back to my page with the encrypted cookie.
2. The first part works fine - the redirection to the checksecurity.cfm page happens, the authentication and creating of the cookie happens fine. But then when that page tries to redirect back to mypage.cfm, I get a message that it was unable to access mypage.cfm.
Now I have no control over checksecurity.cfm - it is handled by a completely different team and I have no access to them. All I'm told is that their end is working fine - the problem is with mypage.cfm. I checked to make sure that on IIS, I have all the default pages set up (index.cfm, mypage.cfm, etc). but the problem still persists.
Anybody had a similar issue and resolved successfully? TIA
