URL Redirection

It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

For example:

www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

Thank you :)

        There is a hack way around it using the site path routing and real webserver options.

        Create a new real webserver using a DNS host address as (using the above)

        "www.company.com/newsite"; (Note this will not resolve)

        Then create a site path route to "/" and select the above host as the destination

        Not perfect, but got us over the line without having to resort to IIS or Netscaler.

        I see they use an apache2 instance for their WAF feature. Apache 2 is capable of rewriting host headers and urls. The WAF Feature is packed in
        chroot-reverseproxy-2.4.10-159.g9bc4935.rb3.i686.rpm

        And in your
        \var\storage\chroot-reverseproxy\usr\apache\conf\

        their shold be a reverseproxy.conf with your settings. If you're good a apache 2 configuring you're able to write theese config files from overwriting vom confd maybe you're able to build and test a rewriting feature.

        Indeed, I'd need to have this option also. I've two domains that are listening to the same CAS server and I need two URL's. Without his option, I need to make a workarround via IIS, with I think is silly.

        Sophos is advertising to be "THE" replacement option for TMG, but this needed, and should be standard in my opinion, option is not available.

        There are tons of examples of how to do this in .htaccess files. A few simple options, like the original requestors, would be great. Even better would be an "advanced" freeform text box to paste in more complicated regex.

        Yes, please. There must be a way. Kann doch nicht so kompliziert sein. Gebt Euch einen Ruck. :-)

        how long we must wait for this ? is it so complicated?

        is there an unofficial way to modify the apapche config, so i can do a rewrite till the the utm reboot? can someone explaine how?

        We need this feature! I am surprised to see that this feature of TMG has never made it to the UTM, as sometimes our published web page is part of an appliance, which we cannot modify to configure the redirect on that part.

        We need to have our users being able to use (for example) www.company.com/vpn to be redirected to vpn.company.com/site/subsite/app/index.html, so they can easily remember it..

        This basic feature is a must have. It is unbelievable that this has not been implemented yet. Paying over $18000 for a UTM and it has no support for a simple, most basic feature in a reverse proxy server. What makes us more angry is the fact that Sophos does not seem to care at all. Where are they replies to this request???? The first request was in 2012!!!??? Back to square one.

        Hello,
        are there any news releated to this issue? Is the plan to implement this kind of redirection?
        Workarounds on app servers are not the good solution for us.
        THX a lot
