How does one test connectivity from a IIS web server instance in the DMZ to another web server on the internal network? The connection needs to take place over HTTP, but I'd also like to be able to ping as well.
As it stands, we can see the underlying server OS IP address trying to get through the Cisco ASA (5540), but that gets denied (obviously). What we want to do is connect over HTTP (or ping) from the IP address bound to an instance of the IIS web server.
(Forgive me if it's not called an "instance". I'm just talking about how you can bind a different IP address to different "websites" running under IIS.)
Any ideas how we can test connectivity under the alias of the website IP address on the IIS box? As if we were the website itself? I'd think it'd be doable.
Thanks in advance...
