I've got a client with a DSL line with 1 static IP. He would like to run multiple web servers on his network (on separate machines).
On the router all port 80 traffic is currently forwarded to one local IP of a windows 2003 server that is not running IIS but a proprietary mail server web mail application. We are looking to set up a secondary Web server on a different, Windows XP box.
How do we set this up? Does this have to be done on the router end or configured on a workstation that will route appropriate traffic to appropriate workstations? Do we set up Host Headers? If so, how, on the MS2k3 or the XP IIS box? Can host headers forward requests to other machines on the network?
Once this is configured, what happens when someone enters http://18.104.22.168
? Which web server box will typing in the public IP resolve to?
Currently mail.abc.com gets resolved to 22.214.171.124 and the router sees incoming traffic for port 80, forwards it to 192.168.1.1:80 on the local network.
What we would like to do is be able to access mail.abc.com via 126.96.36.199 on a local machine 192.168.1.1:80 and intranet.abc.com via 188.8.131.52 on a local machine 192.168.1.2:80 running IIS.
