Edit, Admin mode. Incorrect link


I set up the site for IIS.

I wrote such settings in the web.config: 

siteUrl="http://localhost/test/" uiUrl="http://localhost/test/ui/" utilUrl="http://localhost/test/util/"
After i authorized, the edit mode and admin worked perfectly.

But l need to map this IIS site for external access from Internet. For this purpose i redirect http://myExternalSite/test to http://localhost/test. After this i changed the settings in the web.config to these:

siteUrl="http://myExternalSite/test/" uiUrl="http://myExternalSite/test/ui/" utilUrl="http://myExternalSite/test/util/"

When i browse the http://myExternalSite/test i can authorize and view my site, BUT when i try to go to the edit or admin mode, i'll get such message:

Incorrect link 

The link you gave does not work, either because the page it points to has been deleted or moved. If you clicked on a link, please inform the site’s webmaster that the link is faulty. 

How i can access the edit and admin mode. when i use the mapping to my site?

A common misstage is to write instead of or vice versa. IIS might respond to both host-headers but only one can match the uiUrl.

Also note that the port must match. If you bind to the uiUrl must also have the same port. I guess a firewall with a port map can do intresting things to the checks...

We are having the same problem with our deployment.  Is there any update on a solution for this?  Please note, we have our port binding in place following the change to our uiUrl and still face this issue.

Also, we're using CMS 10, not 5...

Kind regards,
