You should be able to do this using DNS on your server. I think creating an alias (CNAME) record which points the hostname for 172.16.0.5 to schoolname.com would do this, couldn't it?
Not sure if this is possible, but here goes.
We haev a media streaming server in school that is accessible via our sharepoint install.
What I would like to do if possible, is when clicking on the link within school it uses the local address for the server and when accessed outside of school it uses the external details.
I think what I am after is something like:
When clicked access mms://172.16.0.5/stream.wmv if not available goto mms://schoolname.com/stream.wmv
Make the link point to http://somename.someaddress.tld/webpage.asp
In that page you then add some logic which checks the IP address of the requester. If it's a local address then you redirect to the 172 address else you redirect to the extrenal address.
this should then cope no matter what browser etc is used.
Why would you not want to use the domain name internally?
