Let us say I have two subdomains: and is pointing at a different server than is. Is there a way to get a url of http://app.domain/content to point to without the url in the browser changing to the subdomain?

I am trying to get this to work in IIS 7 / 6 and am having issues.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yes. As Vivek commented you need to use URL Re-Writing for this, and use a technique called a "Reverse Proxy".

If IIS 7 is your first machine, then you have the options of:

If IIS6 is your first machine, then you only have the option of ISAPI ReWrite.

The exact methods differ depending on your rewriting method, so choose one and then do a search on exactly how to do it.
