Re: Intelligent home page
The correct (and very easy) way to do this, is on the server (and to use
Fully Qualified Domain Names). The only other thing that comes to mind
while living within your conditions is to set both addresses as home pages,
but this would be an awful solution. Presumably, the 'internal' one
wouldn't be accessible when the user is 'outside' and you could probably
block or restrict the external address from the inside network. But, every
time the user opened the browser or hit the home button, they'd have to wait
for one of the home pages to go through the 'not found' conditions and
generate the error.
Slightly better would be to create a script that will change the IE home
page and find a way to run it every time the user changes location (assuming
that it's not being forced to something by group policy)
