Smoothwall selective forwarding from the same port to different internal computers


Hi everyone.

I was just wondering if it was possible to forward one port to different machines using smoothwall.

Like I have a friend who wants to be able send certain requests to one machine on the 'green' safe network and others to another machine on the 'green network'.

Is this possible??

Yes you certainly can, take a look at their Smoothwall Manual for guidance.

Hi {BBI}Nexus{BBI} I have just been though the whole manual and have not found what I was looking for. Maby I didnīt explain myself well or somthing

Basically if someone tries to connect to my friends ip address he wants it to go to different computers in the green part of the network depending on the domain name the machine connecting is looking for.

He wants to host a mail server on one machine and a web page server on another... both at port 80

Thanks for your time anyways!

Generally speaking you won't be able to achieve it.
But what you can do, if the mailserver on port 80 is actually the web interface of the mailserver(smtp runs on 25), is that you configure one Server to proxy requests to other servers(for example using Apache virtualhosts)
