ArcGIS Server Web services that are properly configured to work in a reverse proxy system architecture, as specified in the ESRI Knowledge Base Article in the Related Information below, are inaccessible to ArcGIS Desktop applications and ArcGIS Server Web ADF applications. This can manifest in many ways including MapServices not returning requested maps.
Prior to ArcGIS Server 9.2 Service Pack 3, ArcGIS Server requests to ArcGIS Server for available Web services, configured in a reverse proxy architecture, returned improperly formed URLS.
Additionally, ArcGIS Desktop applications, prior to ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 Service Pack 3, did not properly handle relative URLs returned by server from requests for available services.
ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 Service Pack 3 now works with the absolute and relative URLs returned by ArcGIS Server in requests for available Web services from the Internet outside an organization's firewall.
