  • Re: IIS configuration for routing to internal server

    Jul 16, 2019 05:29 PM|Chris Becke|LINK

    Typically you setup ARR as a reverse proxy to handle situations like this:

    ARR on the Gateway server would have a rewrite rule that would see requests to files.external.com/{url} and rewrite them to http://internalapp/downloads/{url}

    You need some way however to guard this endpoint, Ive never tried ARR and rewriting like this with AD authentication so I have no idea if its possible or what complexity it adds. An alternate way to solve it is to use an internal storage system that can create pre-signed urls (i.e. single use urls that expire) that are shared to external users, and those can be rewritten safely by ARR on your gateway server.
