This by far is probably an easy and silly thing but it is baffling me at the moment. Consider the following diagram
We have a sharepoint site whose images can only be seen by users OUTSIDE of the hosting domain. Those users that access the site from WITHIN the domain cannot see the image. The image is hardcoded to be referenced from outside the domain (http/https). The solution would be to somehow map local host to the https url being used by those outside the domain, but how to do this?
I hear conflicting arguments about the modification of the /etc/host files (i.e. 127.0.0.1 www.mydomain.com). Apparently modifying this can affect AAM and IIS redirects. What is the best approach to configure Sharepoint so that SSL (https) pages can be seen INSIDE and OUTSIDE the host domain?
