I inherited a network that has 2 web servers. Exactly why there are two webservers escapes me but that's another issue... The problem is that the person who set up these servers placed one of them outside the firewall with its own static IP address. This presents me with two problems.
1) This webserver does not benefit from the protection of the firewall.
2) I can't backup its database to our domain controller, where the backup would be written to the nightly tape backup.
What I'm having trouble with is how to port forward http requests to two different servers. This seems as if it would be a common problem. The only ways I can think of to do this would be if there were different port forwarding rules for IP aliases or perhaps if ports could be forwarded based on domain names. I cannot help but think that I am missing something...
Can anyone fill me in?
