First time I'm actually asking a question, hoping someone has the answer.....

Description of situation:
- PIX 501
- Single public IP address
- 1 physical web server hosting 2 web sites
- DNS set up to map both web sites to the same public IP
  (eg: and both use the same public IP)
- PIX 501 maps public IP to the physical server for port 80
- IIS handles HTTP request using host header to map to the right web site

Now I want to add another physical server hosting 3 web sites. This physical server obviously will be given another private IP address. There is however no possibility to get another public IP to map to this new server and the web sites it runs.

Is there any way to get the PIX to handle this "problem", ie use the same public IP for all 5 web sites and have the respective IIS installations on the physical servers to map to the proper we site?

I've been pondering this for a while now, but being new to Cisco I'm not getting any further. Help would be very much appreciated.
