We have a customer with two web servers (one is IIS 4.0) and the other one is a Linux based server. Both of them hosts a couple of domain names (public domain name as company.com for example).
Problem is that they have only one public IP-nr and no real proxy server. So the firewall now sends all http-traffic to the IIS-server.
As you already can understand, I would like to redirect som of the domain names to the other server. In IIS 4.0, I have configured a web site listening to all of these domain names, and entered "forward to URL" and the IP-nr of the second server (Linux-based). That config does not work since the orginal URL is lost and all visitors are shown the standard website at the linux-server.
How do I do this on the IIS-server? Manually add on website per domain, and enter the target URL as "http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/~username/
" works but the URL does not look nice for the visitor.
Any other suggestion?
Thanks in advance
