Reverse Proxy/no top level domain name!
Hey guy!

I'm setting up a Ubuntu LAMP server and need to use a reverse proxy for windows hosts on the network. I have no top level domain name and want to connect by ip addresses.

One public ip address to serve multiple internal servers. How does this work?

I looked at a nice few tutorials but am not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

I found where the configurations had to be made: etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default. I think older versions of Apache had to be configured in httpd.conf, but this is no longer the case (not sure!). I also had trouble configuring it correctly.. I'm still not 100% done, but the reverse proxy is working. As for the domains, I just wrote ip addresses in the conf file as opposed to domain names.. right now it only works for one server, not sure how to add names, example:

I'm not near the machine now, so I can't show the conf file at the moment.

Not 100% solved I guess!
