Sonicwall Pro2400 Port Forwarding question

We have only one Public IP address to use and need to forward port 80 to seperate devices behind the firewall.  Now I'm aware that in most cases you would need a seperate public IP address for each device if it is using the same port.

My question is with the Sonicwall is there a way to direct traffic maybe based on the source IP to access the correct device on port 80?   Both vendors will be connecting FROM the same IP or range of IP's.

Sonicwall does not have that capability.  What you are looking for is a reverse proxy or utilize HTTP headers to route to the proper website.

That's what I thought.  How involved would it be to setup a reverse proxy and would Squid be an obvious choice?

There is some complexity, but not too bad.  Actually, you can do it with apache web server if you want.  Not much visibility there but it can work.  Squid will work.  Both work best on a linux base though.  I've had permissions issues when trying to get squid to work in windows server.  The easiest was microsoft's ISA server, but they don't offer that any more.
