Hi.

I have posted a message in news group and a member of experts-exchange have reply me to submit my problem :)

Well :

Like you know the NT servers need protection :)

I am trying to protect a NT Web server behind a Linux server. My config is
simple :

I have a linux box that masquarade the NT server. So the NT server have
192.168.200.2 for IP address, on my linux box i have Two IPs add assignated
with IP Aliasing : 134.***.***.55 & 134.***.***.56

Now it is simple, i want that, when a incoming http request arrive on the
134.***.***.56 IP add, this request is redirect to the 192.168.200.2 IP of
the NT web server Behind the linux box. Because all the web structure of the
site is on the NT box ( :/ )

So i thing that with one or two ip forwarding rules i can do that. But in
fact i can not do that with my rules because i do not know how to tell to
the ipfwadm utility to do that.

With ipfwadm you can specify Source and Destination but not redirection :/
with a rule like : ipfwadm -F -a m -V 134.***.***.56 -W eth0:1 -b -P all -S
0.0.0.0/32 -D 192.168.200.2/32 it doesn't works

my linux config is : Linux RedHat 4.2 with 2.0.32 kernel.

if someone have any idea it will be welcome :)

please answer me to : acassen@ifhamy.insa-lyon.fr

Pick up the ipautofw tool, this will allow you to redirect requests towards one IP/port combination to another. The masquerading you already have in place will take care of the outgoing packets, and make it appear as though they originated from the IP address of the Linux box.

IPautofw is available from

ftp://ftp.netis.com/pub/members/rlynch/

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Bye.
