My employer uses MOSS 2007 for our company intranet. It runs solely on secure http and is also exposed to the outside world via ISA. I currently have a request to add a forwarding URL to our site so that something like the following will occur:
redirects to ->
I fully expect this sort of thing will become more popular with our users as time goes on. So I am looking for a solution that scales. I have read various articles about creating a /site/ with forwarding meta tags or a forwarding SharePoint page type. I've also seen some that talk about adding virtual directories, etc directly in IIS. All these solutions seem to be overkill and inevitably take up more memory or processing time on the web servers.
I am currently leaning towards writing an http module that can be configured in the web.config and perform redirects. I wanted to get feedback to see if anyone else has done something similar in SharePoint 2007 and had any suggestions. Again, I'd like to implement something that scales without making major changes later on and is going to put minimal processing burden on our web servers. Thanks!
