How can clients on internal network take

By talbot ·
I've set up Proxy 2.0 SP1 with some success. Exchange is bound to the proxy servers ports, and external users recieve our internal web page via the proxy server (web publishing), but when internal clients try to type in our web page, they receive the web page located ON THE PROXY SERVER ITSELF the request is not directed to our internal web server. I know web publishing was made to secure your web site from internet users, but how can I set it up so internal clients get sent to our real web page? Do I need to redirect the default web page in IIS on my proxy server? Thanks in advance.

You shouldn't need to redirect your default web page. It sounds as if your DNS is resolving differently depending on which side of the proxy server you are on. I'm not too familiar with MSProxy but best practice would have your clients never touching the proxy server (assuming your web server is a separate PC). Externally, your web page should resolve to your proxy while internally it should go directly to the web server. If you have a forwarding DNS set up there must be a way to do a clientside host file on the proxy that is never zone transferred outside. any MSP people out there know exactly how? Or if you have a separate DNS set it up there.

thanks, i'm having client machines point to my internal DNS first with local address mappings, and then point at my proxy to handle internet DNS queries. It works!

Since your web servers are on the internal network the proxy should not even try to handle the request. Make sure that the LAT is configured properly on the proxy. Another to try is put the proxy client on your workstations.

On your client machines, make sure the Web browser is set to "Bypass Proxy for local addresses" (IE).
