We're having trouble logging into our reverse proxy address.

If I connect to the internal address it works fine. I get the directories a particular user has permission to get to.

If I use the machines reverse proxy external address and I type the login I just go back to the root and no directories have appeared and it's still got a login link up the top right (ie. it hasn't logged in).

I've checked the web.configs in "rest", "Tokens" and "Services" and changed things like the TokenServiceURL.
I'm not using SSL so my TokenServiceURL is something like:
http://<external address>/ArcGIS/tokens/

I've gone into the rest.config and changed <SoarpUrl>, <SoapSslUrl> and <ServicesDirectoryHelpUrl>.

If I go to the external admin login
http://<external address>/ArcGIS/rest/Admin

I get this modification to the url:
http://<external address>/ArcGIS/rest/admin/login?redirect=http%3a%2f%2f<internal address>%2farcgis%2frest%2fadmin

note the internal address in the referer. Is that a hint of what is happening?
