HTTPS re-direct?

Hello,

im trying to work out how i can point HTTPS to two servers in a network from a Virgin SuperHUB router. I know it can only be done to one IP, but does anyone know another way around please?

1. I have exchange that needs HTTPS for secure OWA connections.
2. i have Citrix WI 5.4 behind Sewcure Gateway 3.2 thats also needs to be on HTTPS for secure web connections.

i can only forward Https traffic from home virgin router to any one IP at any one time. Is there a way i can get this set so i can access both servers with https. e.g redirecting https from one server to another server's site?

if so please can someone help on how i can do this, Exchange server with OWA is hosted on server 2008R2 64bits IIS 7.0 and Citrix WI is hosted on server 2003R2 32bits with IIS 6.0.

Thanks

you will struggle with this in IIS.

when you do a redirect on IIS, it will send a reply back to the client browser telling them where to find the website - this will rely on having an external IP address for your Citrix WI server.

obvious way round it is to have more than one IP address!

not quite so obvious would be to use something like MS Threat Management Gateway (ISA) to handle all your traffic.  If I understand some of the new features correctly, it allows multiple SSL sites to be bound to the same IP address.  Other firewalls/proxies should be able to something similar - I believe Astaro's firewall might do it (never tried it).

what OS are the web servers running on - you could always put them into an NLB - which will give you the 1 IP you need and they will both respond to it

windows 2008R2 and windows 2003R2- can you elaborate on NLB please?

ChrisCommented:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLMZxin9n84 this shows you how to set it up on 2008R2

you set the NLB up with one FQDN i.e. random.yourdomain.com on 1 IP 192.168.7.1

the NLB then load balances between the two servers both responding to the IP and FQDN

you can make it happen but would be best having both on the same OS

this tells you how to work with two OS's
