Is a 64-bit IIS proxy compatible with a 32-bit Weblogic application?

Would this scenario work:

A Windows 2008 R2 64-bit machine running IIS, using the 64-bit iisproxy.dll and iisforward.dll from Weblogic 10.3 forwarding/proxying to a 32-bit Windows 2003 machine running 32-bit Weblogic 10.3?

To simplify, can I proxy from a 64-bit OS to a 32-bit OS?

yes it can work
the x86 and x64 can not use the same processes but this
may work as it is a .dll not a currently running process

It's two separate machines, so they are not sharing processes and not doing RPC or anything special other than just proxying  by path from the 64bit IIS (using 64bit iisproxy.dll) to the 32bit instance of Weblogic 10.3.  My assumption is that the 64-bit DLL is needed due to the fact that win2008 is 64-bit and once the packets leave the server the destination can be 32 or 64bit OS & Weblogic right?

you've got the right idea
once data or files leave it is not really version specific
think of all the other x86 apps that can access an operate with a x64 server

Answer was theoretical rather than based on real evidence but generally acceptable.
