We have encountered a problem with configuring the second iis server to use RDWEB.

Our situation:

DOMAIN 1: 172.16.0.200
IIS SERVER 7: 172.16.0.200
Operating system: SBS 2011

DOMAIN 1 is also the dhcp server and domain 2 has no dhcp server because it's not recommended.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows server 2012 with hyper-v: 172.16.0.202
DOMAIN 2: 172.16.0.203 (virtual machine DC)
IIS SERVER: 172.16.0.204 (virtual machine Remote desktop services >)
Operating systems both: Windows server 2012

DOMAIN 1 is also the dhcp server and domain 2 has no dhcp server because it's not recommended.

The active directories are separate.

The iis webname of domain 1 is:
remote.ourdomain.com

The iis webname of domain 2 is:
2remote. ourdomain.com

The DNS server on the 172.16.0.200 have the following forward lookup zones:
remote.ourdomain.com (Host (A) record to 172.16.0.200)
2remote.ourdomain.com (Host (A) record to 172.16.0.204)

We can reach our 172.16.0.200 on remote.ourdomain.com from external internet but if we want to reach 172.16.0.204 (on 2remote.ourdomain.com) so we are forwarded to the IIS server on remote.ourdomain.com
Internal everything works fine.

The SSL certificates are installed and they work.

My question:

How can we configure that if we try to connect to https://2remote. ourdomain.com that the traffic is going to domain 2 where the webpage /iis is located even if the two iis servers have one public ip ?

If you want to do this with only one public IP then you must set up a reverse proxy server/appliance in front of the two servers. It would receive ALL incoming web requests and forward them on to the appropriate back end server based on the requested URL.

Thank you for you answer!
I understand that the SBS 2011 can't be a reverse proxy server?

What is your advise to do? We have a SonicWall NSA 240 for firewall/router. Is it maybe possible to do that in this system or maybe install a 'standalone' server as reverse proxy?

I am not familiar with Sonicwalls anymore, but many higher end UTM devices can be reverse proxies. A standalone reverse proxy is also an option. I know there are a few Linux distro options, for example.
