I have searched for too long time on the net and finally decided to ask here as I am using the Rewriter for proxy business.
Windows Server 2003, IIS 6.0 . latest IIRF
I am proxying a website to hide it from public. People access a subfolder of the main website whoch rewrites the request to the hidden server.
All is well and that part works
Eventually, the load to the remote server we are hiding might get too high and we'll receive a 503 status code. The user will see a service denied from the hidden server.
1) errors from the hidden server shall be covered by our own error pages of the primary site. I found no way yet to obtian the response code, analyse it and redirect/rewrite accordingly when proxing
2) Can I set a timeout in which I will forward to a timeout message sooner than the default 20 seconds when accessing the remote server?
Many thanks for any valuable input. cannot believe that this is impossible ?
