I have a question about windows servers and proxies. I'm the web person for a large hospital and our IT team can't solve an issue involving our domain name.
We recently moved our web hosting server from an internal machine to a leased, external, dedicated server at my recommendation (our I.T. people couldn't even get us a proper database running on the internal one).
Any computer connected to our internal network has a setting in their internet explorer that says if they are visiting *.ourdomain.com then do not redirect them through the proxy server and just send them to the proper server in our network. This is all good, except we need www.ourdomain.com to point to the new web server and it should go through the proxy. Well, we have about 15 or 20 subdomains and the I.T. people say they'd prefer not to list them all out in the i.e. exceptions because it'd require too much work to manage (wtf?).
So, is there any other solution? Right now what I've done is put a redirect isapi filter in IIS on the internal web host and any request is rewritten as replace www.ourdomain.com with www.ourOtherdomain.com which is confusing a ton of people. We don't want visitors hitting ourOtherdomain.com.
Any advice or firepower for my meeting with I.T. tomorrow would be awesome.
