Is it possible to make an Intranet available to the public?

serverX = main domain server (Win Server 2016)
serverY = server (Win Server 2016) - contains intranet

We have a static IP address, when used in browser, it loads the IISSTART.HTM page (on ServerX). Is there a way to load the intranet instead which is on ServerY?

Intranet uses php5.5 / MySQL

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you please reformulate the question and explain what exactly you would like to achieve
Either assign the static IP to server Y or change the start page on server X to redirect the user to server Y.

If something is related to the routing, you can always expose the server in router DMZ, but that can affect other configs for the rest of the LAN services. You have details to explain what you have as available service, and then someone can recommend forwarding rule or opening some ports.

You need to add host header to website within IIS this way port 80/443 will go to website and not IISSTART.HTM

Setting router to point to server along with our static IP address - works just fine.
