A service (Database)we use on the I'net authenticates us by a range of
IP addresses we have provided them. Let's say 22.214.171.124-10
Some of our users have a different ISP and therefore show a different
IP when trying to log in to the Database.
A while back, I created a password protected site on my web server
which, when you logged in to it from outside of our WAN, redirected you
to the Database log in page, and it looked to the Database service like
the request was coming from our WANs range of IP addresses.
My web server crashed a couple months ago and I lost those web pages
and configuration, and I can't remember how I did it. I'm pretty sure
it was just a redirect like:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;
but that doesn't work now.
Anyone have a clue how I might do this again?
(and yes, the webserver is now being backed up nightly!)
