How to get through to another server on a network when the main server is tied to a static IP and a www domain name?

Question title just about says it all. The secondary server has a local network IP and it's server capabilities can be had by just using it's computer name or it's local network IP, but what methodology of addressing can be used to get that secondary servers service from a remote computer doesn't work. Have tried an indirect method where primary server does the htp:// or htp://secondarycomputername and that doesn't do it for me either. Changed the config file to     Listen (xxx.etc.. being local network address) would a different :port do it???

You need to use a different port, and forward that port on your NAT router to send the traffic to that internal host.

that way you would access the site by doing:

OR, you could have it on the same port (80) if you get another public Ip address.

If you are using Apache, you could setup apache to be a reverse proxy sever for the second web sever.

You would setup apache so that is severed up locally and is reversed proxy to the secondary web sever.  You might be able to setup a virtual host on apache so that is reversed proxy to the secondary sever.
