Hello all, this may not even be possible but I thought I would ask.  Please excuse the terminology if it's wrong.

//Foundation//
Company currently uses a virtual server setup to host a Ubuntu server to the outside world on a static ip with dns setup
Company currently uses a windows server internally to host a seperate webpage to internal users only
Both servers are on the same network subnet

//Question//
Is there a way to (forward, port, redirect..??? ...ect.) the windows webpage so it can be viewed thru the Ubuntu server and served to the outside world as if it was on the same Ubuntu website without putting a outside IP on the windows server?

Thank you

If it doesn't change very often, I would just copy it to the Linux server.

Thanks for the quick response, but the webpage is dynamic and changes almost by the minute.

Do you need to just display it or do the users need to 'interact' with it?  If the Linux server can access the internal web site, you can use PHP to 'get' the Windows web page for display.  If interaction is required, you're not going to be able to do it.  The user's browser won't be able to send anything to the internal server.

You might be able to create a PHP page on the Linux server that accesses the same info so you can put up a page that duplicates the internal page.
