I have a public facing web server at serving several pages (it's behind a NAT'ed firewall) I also have another internal server "winttfs" hosting a TFS server.

I have the URL pointing to the server. I would like the server to serve the project portal from the wintfs server when someone uses

I have installed and enabled Application Request Routing cache. Under the site I have the following rule:

        <rule name="tfs" stopProcessing="true">
            <match url=".**)" />
            <action type="Rewrite" url="http://wintfs{r:1}" logRewrittenUrl="true" />

This rule does not seem to hit at all. Hos should I set it up?
