Publish multiple Webservers Sonicwall

I recently started setting up my Sonicwall. We are moving from ISA server. however we ran into some trouble when trying to find out how to publish multiple webservers. Any ideas? we do have several IP addresses but it seems that we cant setup more than 1 IP address per IP subnet.  Please help figure this one out :)

Thanks

It's a Nat thing.

Firewall rule:
1. Add a rule that allows any outside traffic to your public IP 123.223.333 over port 80.
2. Add a NAT rule that maps that outside IP to an internal server.

That should be it. I suggest though that you put your web servers on the DMZ port and go that route. Safer.

Indeed, that works for a single server, but I have 2 servers to publish on port 80

I was used to ISA capability to rout to a specific server depending on the website for instance
www.server1.com would go to internalserver1 and www.server2.com would go to internalserver2 . Is there anything like that in Sonicwall?

Hi xqualo,

Does each web server have its own public IP? If so, you should be able to accomplish this by running the Public Server Wizard as many times as needed for all the webservers you have. Later you can consolidate the Access Rules.

Let me know how it goes!

The web servers are in the internal network  without public ip addresses

For web servers, its good practice to have Static Public IPs for each server. This would also make the configuration easy because it would just be setting up NAT Policies for each Pub IP to each web server.

So if I understand you correctly, you want it setup so that one Public IP (static or dynamic?) points to all the web servers? What is the purpose for this type of setup...load balancing?

THe actual question was not answered however the propositions work as a workaround, the functionality itself to do what was initially proposed seems to be missing.

Thanks! :D
