One thing that might work....

Let's say you want to force all requests going to svn.example.com to go
to svn.office.example.com.

On the internal LAN DNS server, create a primary (master) zone called:


And point it at the svn.office.example.com address. Do this by creating
an empty name "A" record and assigning the IP address to the internal
address that you want to shove traffic to. You may even be able to just
create a CNAME to do the re-direction magic.

(I set this up in about 5 minutes on a Win2003 DNS server, I'll probably
replicate the setup using BIND9 in a week or three on my home network.
It *seems* to work...)
