Redirecting URL Without Changing Address

Hello,

 

I have a VS that am setting up that is pointing to an IIS backend server that is configured to only respond to an address (IE test1.address.com). I need to find a way for my VS to point to this without changing the URL in the browser so the following happens:

 

User goes to "test.address.com" (which is the VIP of my VS).

This actually points to "test1.address.com", but the user only sees "test.address.com" in their browser.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks!

This is what is known as a "reverse proxy"

Use a Rewrite profile to translate any absolute references and Host headers in the HTTP request/response to match the external name.

 

If the pool member is accessed over HTTPS, you will probably need to create a server-ssl profile that specifies the Server Name, so the ClientHello includes the correct extension for Server Name Indication (SNI).
