i installed a website in IIS 7 on server win 2008 .
the web site is an application called tasks under the Default web site . i created a self-signed certificated
the server ip is 10.0.0.2. the application name is tasks
so now from internal network i go to : http://10.0.0.2/tasks or
and the site works.
now i want to access from oputside the network, so in the firewall (fortigate 80) which ip address is : 126.96.36.199 i configured port forward
from 8585 to 10.0.0.2 in 443. so all income traffic to the firewall in port 8585 will be forward to the web server in port 443
now , i tried to go to : https://188.8.131.52:8585 and the certification warning poped up, i confirmed it and then got the message : the site under construction .
i realized that i need to use http redirect :
so i configured in the default web site :
redirect request to this destination: /tasks
only reditrect requests to the content in this directory : marked
