Multiple URLs with IAG

Thanks to my hosting provider Titan Internet , I have a very comprehensive statistics package which shows the top search phrases that leads people to this blog.

One of the phrases recently was:"IAG allow several URL"

In short yes, IAG will allow multiple URLs, where each URL will access a different trunks.

So you will be able to host a number of URLs and trunks, all with a different look and feel, as well as different authentication methods. There are some limitations, such as File Access can only be configured once, and not to different shares for different trunks.

So you could have the following:

Company wide remote access
URL: https://iag.mycompany.com
Authentication: AD & HOTPin
Endpoint Protection: Machine must be running AV software
Applications: OWA, SharePoint, CRM, File Access & Terminal Server

Technical Support remote access
URL: https://tech.mycompany.com
Authentication: AD & VASCO
Endpoint Protection: Machine must be a member of the domain
Applications: OWA, SharePoint, CRM, File Access, Terminal Server & RDP access to servers

Auditor Access
URL: https://audit.mycompany.com
Authentication: Local Users & RADIUS
Endpoint Protection: Machine must be running AV software
Applications: Accounting database (authorisation by user account)

Partner Access
URL: https://partner.mycompany.com
Authentication: Novell
Endpoint Protection: None
Applications: Intranet Access (authorisation by user account)

The granularity is there for a number of different portals, and each one can have a different look and feel, with a different URL.

Have fun trying this!!!
