    Mutliple Internet Domain to 1 IP

    Hi,

    So I want to be able to route multiple external domains (ie http://video.website.com and http://mail.website.com) to different servers internally. Will Microsoft Forefront UAG fit the bill for this, I want to try and avoid 3rd party or open source if possible.

    Any ideas or a rough guide if somebody has managed this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Interested to see what you find to do this. At the moment I'm using ISA2006 purely for this task (used to be our main firewall, but now i use it purely for publishing sites) I've heard sophos have a system for doing this which i think only came out this year or last year but like you ideally i want to avoid 3rd party aka paying for something else.

    Seems very fussy of me but more than anything i want to get rid of that last windows 2003 server I've got hence the desire to replace the ISA

    you could set one up as a proxy to the other? or maybe (a better idea would be) a reverse proxy in front of both of them (would certainly help the video servers capacity) Reverse proxy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Squid would be my recommendation. Squid (software) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Make sure you have a wildcard DNS entry pointing to the single domain (website.com) then use URL host headers to serve the different pages. IIS will handle this for you.

    Configure a Host Header for a Web Site (IIS 7)

    Even if the websites are on different servers, I have done this for websites hosted on the same server?

    I think you can if you use an IIS reverse proxy.

    Setting up a Reverse Proxy using IIS, URL Rewrite and ARR : carlosag : The Official Microsoft IIS Site


    Use host headers to filter the request and define the URL rewrite for each site using the above method.

    Technically not what it is designed to do but if you could use the lower end KEMP loadbalancers to do this - I say lower end because you won't need the SSL offloading etc.

    Plus it's really easy to setup - 10/20 mins once you have the jist of it.
