Port Forwarding

I have a internet connection with dynamic ip.....therefore I use a dyndns which works fine. Is there a way of setting up port forwarding for multiple IP address ie. if I have two seperate servers with a web page on each that requires port 80 to be opened, can I forward traffic to server1 and server2.....actually little confused!!!

The question really relates to HP Proliant Lights-Out Management card access to web interface over internet

I don't think that is doable. Can't you change one of the web pages to run on something other then port 80?

I'm not familiar with the HP Proliant Lights-Out Management card, but if that part is mainly for your use, like for managing a server (a reasonable assumption given the name), then you could redirect a different port to it.

As a result, you would have the following mappings:

Public IP, port 80 -> Web Server, port 80
Public IP, port 45321 (or whatever you choose) -> HP Proliant Lights-Out Management card, port 80

Simple, and doesn't require a new server.  The only extra effort (other than configuring the port forwarding) would be when you browse to your Management Card from the outside, you'd have to specify the port in the browser:  http://yourdns.dyndns.org:45321


At the risk of sounding mercenary, I believe I offered a viable solution as well.  Feedback from the original asker might have proven my solution to be unusable, but in the absence of such feedback, I believe I am due an assist as well.

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

So much for my objection ...
