I need to take requests to firstdomain.com/example/foo/bar and serve up content from seconddomain.com/example/foo/bar but I want the end user to still see firstdomain.com/example/foo/bar in their browser. That rules out a 301/302 redirect. I thought URL-rewrite would do the trick, but that has to be same domain. I think ARR is what I need. So, I've installed ARR v3.0 and rebooted my server. Now that ARR v3.0 is installed, how do I go about configuring it to perform the desired request routing?

I should note seconddomain.com is a 3rd party hosted server, whereas firstdomain.com is hosted on a server on our network.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <urlCompression doStaticCompression="false" doDynamicCompression="false" dynamicCompressionBeforeCache="false" />
                <rule name="ReverseProxyInboundRule1" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="(.*)" />
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://www.seconddomain.com/{R:1}" />
                <rule name="ReverseProxyOutboundRule1" preCondition="ResponseIsHtml1">
                    <match filterByTags="A, Form, Img" pattern="^http(s)?://www.seconddomain.com/(.*)" />
                    <action type="Rewrite" value="http{R:1}://www.firstdomain.com/{R:2}" />
                    <preCondition name="ResponseIsHtml1">
                        <add input="{RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE}" pattern="^text/html" />
