IIS 6.0 URL Redirect / host head value

IIS 6.0 URL Redirect / host head value

Post by Kristofer » Sun, 17 Sep 2006 15:46:36


Hello,

If you want to redirect the local domain name (citrix.testor.com) then you
need a local webserver that can do the redirection. On this local
webserver, set up a redirection to the public domain name
(citrix.cannon.com).


Note: If citrix.testor.com does not resolve to anything (not even on your
local network), then this will never work. It has to resolve to something,
or else it is useless to use.

So to redirect the local domain name to the public domain name, you need:

- Configure the DNS server that resolves the local domain name to a local
webserver.
- Configure the local webserver to redirect to the public domain name (can
be done by creating a new website if you already have other websites).

Another option if you do not want to use a HTTP redirect (which i thought
after reading your subject line) is to configure the DNS server so that
citrix.testor.com resolves to citrix.cannon.com. This can be done by
configuring a CNAME record for citrix.testor.com (in the DNS server
responsible for this domain name).

Kristofer,

Thanks for the reply,

I tried what you have recommended with DNS records. The problem with that is
the server are on a different forest and domain.

cannon.com = domain & forest
testor.com = domain & forest

I am not really sure how to add cname record for machines that are not on
the same domain.

Abel.

That should not be any problem.

Add a CNAME record, and point it to the other location.

If you do not know how to create a CNAME record, either look in the manual
for the DNS server software you use, or ask in the DNS newsgroup.
