port forwarding without NAT

Hello,

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.
There is no routing between the two networks, and I also don't want to install NAT, because it should not be possible to make other connections between LAN1 and LAN2.

What comes in mind is forward a port on the windows 2003 box. But I don't know how to install that without NAT.
Or do I need third party utilities to make this possible?

hi

no routing, no NAT, and 2 different LANs....IMHO, that's not gonna work. As regards to port forwarding, forward it to where ? That involves either routing or NAT.

hi ansh_gupta

If I read well, cwwkie said "There is no routing between the two networks".

So, your idea is interesting, but the notion of gateway does imply some routing, or am I wrong ?

I understand this is possible when I enable routing between the two networks, but the networks are split because of security reasons. Otherwise an even easier solution would be putting everything in the same network.

If it's for security purposes, I would the use a firewall, and forward the right port to the right machine (routing implied of course, but security is preserved).

funny, turn on routing, but use the firewall to disable it again, except a single port...

I think I will use a reverse web proxy (http:Q_21888751.html). I think that is the best and easiest solution in this case. Anyway, thanks for your comments.
