Masking an internal network redirect with IIS?
Posted on 2016-07-25
I've got a sub-domain set up externally with masking that to goes a blog another group in our company is using. I've created a sub-domain at our domain host of blog.company.org that redirects to programs.blogco.com/company - but is masked as blog.company.org. No problem there.
What our employees see while at work is why I'm asking this question. Because of the /company in the url, I know I can't do anything with the internal DNS like I usually would and I don't have an ip address for the blog site to point to. I created an internal web site in IIS so I can do url rewrites or redirects but the address in browser always resolves back to programs.blogco.com/company - so that's what our staff sees. While this isn't especially bothersome to me, I know the question will come as to why we can't show blog.company.org internally as well? I've got the URL Rewrite and ARR modules installed but am struggling to make sense of it all and am not sure if what I'm looking for is possible.
So that is my question - is there anything I can do in IIS so what while at work, when our employees go the blog site, they see blog.company.org in their browser instead of programs.blogco.com/company like they do now?
I hope this is clear - as always, thanks in advance.
