IAG HAT & Address Rewrite RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    For security reasons IAG rewrites the URL address and hides the internal URLs.

    However, lets assume that I wish to publish Public websites via IAG - but do not wish to do the address rewrite...so http://company.com always appears as http://company.com.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks,
    T

  • TZ,

    You may publish a corporate website with IAG without URL rewriting.  For example.  http://celestix.com

    Create a new trunk under HTTP >> Select "basic trunk".   You may want to disable the installation of endpoint components.  You can also remove authentication.

    Basic trunk allows you to use celestix.com.  Basic Trunk's also doesnt perform URL rewriting to your internal paths.

    Thanks

  • Hi TZ,

    The reason the IAG rewrite the URL is not only due to security, but also to "route" the request from the browser to the IAG.
    I am not sure what do you mean by "Publish public website". If it is public, that mean that everyone can access it directly without the IAG, so as long you don't list it in the "Servers" list of the IAG published addresss, the IAG will not re-write that address, and access to that URL will be done directy.
    If you DO add this site to the list of published server, that mean you want all traffic to this site be "route" via the IAG, so of course the link need to be re-write to the IAG's address, so the browser will request the URL from IAG and not directly...

    Hope this answer your question. If not, please clarify.

    Thanks,
