Reverse proxy

A Windows 2003 system is connected to two different LANs. What I want to do is connect to a webserver on a pc in LAN1 from a workstation in LAN2. But it should not be possible to make other connections between LAN1 and LAN2.

The windows 2003 box is running IIS. I've read it is not possible to define a reverse proxy with IIS. Is that correct? Is there any other way to get the same functionallity with IIS, or would I need to install another webserver (apache) to create a reverse proxy?

the recomended one is using apache as  a reverse proxy . or you can go  with ISA server if  you have money to spend :-)

I agree with dnojcd for  m$ ISA but I prefer  squid http://www.squid-cache.org/ as reverse  proxy.

probably u want a win32 version http://squid.acmeconsulting.it/SquidNT25.html
