how to configure Multiple webservers behind cablemodem\firewall

I'm running Exchange 2003 with OWA behind my cable modem.  I have a request to install an IIS based webserver.

I have multiple IP addresses but only use one currently.  Can someone give me some help to understand how to accomplish this?

Thanks

you need to perform port-forwarding  for the port 80 on your cable modem configuration so that internet users can access your website.

You can run multiples websites on single server with single ip using the same port 80 (universal http) using host headers

provide me the make and model of the modem so that i can assist you to perform port-forwarding, you may also need to contact your isp in case he blocks the port 80 or he does not allow hosting websites.

I need the request to come in on a different port since Exchange Server is using Port 80.

First, I need to create a subdomain that points at the same public ip address but comes in on a different port than 80.  Is that possible?

I have a Sonicwall TZ 210 firewall behind Cablevision's Cisco router that is set up in bridge mode.  No problem hosting a webserver on our service.

when using different port other than 80 then the user needs to specify the port number for example http://mydomain:13563

yes you can create a subdomain that points to same ip address with different port number, again the user needs to manually enter the port number.
