We have Setup

vpn.mysite.com and mysite.com to point to the same ip address which is one of our servers.

We are trying to setup IIS to have it redirect requests to vpn.mysite.com to one interal ip and just mysite.com to another internal ip.

The server that is handling this is the VPN server.

How would we go about setting this up in the DNS manager?

You do not. IIS can not redirect requests to an internal IP. This is not what IIS does. For that you need a program that does that, to start with.

Is that not what the Windows Server 2008 DNS Manager is for? –  Hailwood Oct 15 '10 at 5:51
DNS Manager managed the DNS. What you ask for seems to be a reverse proxy. –  TomTom Oct 15 '10 at 6:01
Any hints or tutorials you know of? –  Hailwood Oct 15 '10 at 6:03
I have found this tutorial learn.iis.net/page.aspx/659/… which uses the urls mysite.com/webmail and mysite.com/payroll What would I need to change to get it to handle eg webmail.mysite.com and payroll.mysite.com –  Hailwood Oct 15 '10 at 6:27

As TomTom says in the comments - this requires a reverse proxy. So on the Microsoft side, any of:

  • Application Request Routing for IIS 7

  • Threat Management Gateway 2010

  • ISA Server 2006

  • UAG 2010

Could do the job.
