I have an app that has an external url that is different from the internal url. Lets refer to them as:
(uses to forms based authentication)
(uses integrated authentication)
Currently the external url is being served up via a lightweight proxy which we plan to eliminate in favor of a direct connection via an F5 device.
However, on the iis7 webserver (server 2008), /virtualdir is set to integrated authentication. Is there a way to detect that the client is using "external.app.com" and map them to the forms based virtual directory, /virtualdirforms for example, all while keeping the /virtualdir url syntax on the client?
I know I can create a new website on the server and create another /virtualdir with forms based authentication set, but from what I gather, it would require another IP to be allocated to the server, which would require I jump through a bunch of red tape that I don't want to do.
Hopefully this makes sense, I can clarify if need be.
