Is it possible in IIS to do some sort of pseudo reverse proxy?
For example, http://www.site.com is visible to the internet, but
http://hidden.site.com is not. However the hidden.site.com is on the same network as the
www.site.com (ie. lets say its an intranet site).
Is there any way of exposing that http://hidden.site.com as say
I am not looking for a redirection, I want
www.site.com/hidden to be showing exactly the same as hidden.site.com.
I can't make it a virtual directory, there is no method of file sharing I can do this with by means of UNC paths.

Are there any free ones?
The proxy function in that one only comes with the paid version.

I'm not aware of any free ones. The isapiwrite.com offers a trial period.

I'm not even sure isapirewrite will do what you want. The problem is accessing the content from the first box - the way to do it would through UNC but you say that's not possible.

All it needs to do, is act exactly like phproxy and CGIproxy. However neither of those two scripts actually render the pages correctly hence I wanted something more direct.

I'm not familiar with either of those, but do you know ASP.NET? I guess you could write some code that reads the pages on the second server and response.writes them to your client.

The way isapi-rewrite proxy points to content on a separate server, or that is how we implemented it. The content isn't accessed by a UNC path. Our particular implementation uses a vdir however, I guess this could be a root level website. Beyond that,
I'm not sure what else to suggest. I'm not familar enough with the two products mentioned.

The "official" Microsoft product for reverse proxy is ISA Server.
