Mixing query strings and CI URLs (redirect from external host)

I am working on a project where I need to redirect the users' browser to a site that uses query string URLs. My site is using CI URLs. The redirection away to the remote site is not an issue, the problem is when the remote site sends the browser back to my site - the remote site must send information back with the URL in the form of the query string. Variables from the remote site must come back as a query string (ie. no POST allowed). I also have no control over the external site other than the return URL.

This is not a huge problem; I can get around the issue by ensuring the redirection from the remote site to my site is to a non-CI page whose job is to take the URL, parse the query string into a CI equivalent, and then redirect to a CI page.

I was just wondering if anyone has come across this issue before, or if there is a more elegant solution.

Many thanks,
