I have an issue with our new component inside our website. the issue seems to be a network related thing.
My network (The relevant part):
2 web servers windows 2003 web.
Each have 2 Nics (Internal IP and Legit-external IP).
Both of them are connected to a F5 Load Balancer through a VIP (Farm Address).
User is viewing one of the pages, let say: http://Petri.mysite.com/articleid/1234/ – no problem here.
On that same page I have a button called – “ClickMe” – when the user clicks on the button, the server is Addressing itself in order to collect the text from the page and redirects it to a third server.
The problem is that if there is NO record inside the HOSTS file of the server which has the subdomain pointing to the server’s IP (like Petri.mysite.com xxx.xxx.xxx.111- legit IP of the server), then the action get stuck because the domain Petri.mysite.com is pointing to the Load balancer VIP-Farm address.
For obvious reasons I can not add all possible Subdomains to the server’s HOSTS file.
I am not working currently with LoopBack adapter.
I will be happy to read any Ideas which can help.
