I am very desperate to resolve an issue I've been having. First off, I apologize, the servers I have in my office are all Windows based servers.
If you kept reading, thank you. Here goes:
I am currently running a third party software hosted in IIS6.0 on W2K3. The software is hosted as Virtual Directories under the Default Website.
This is where Apache comes in. I heard through some advice that I should install Apache to use the Reverse Proxy functions. So I did my homework and changed my IIS site binding to port 8080 and installed Apache to port 80.
So I did some searching and initially tried to use the ReWrite rules to rewrite the IP address to the external IP 188.8.131.52 instead of 172.16.1.5. No matter how hard I tried, this did not work.
So then I did some more homework and tried to use the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse commands, and it seems to serve my pages when I visit 172.16.1.5/voxco.web instead of 172.16.1.5:8080/voxco.web. So I am thinking the Reverse Proxy is working; however when you click the Reporting link, again it launches the window with a request to the internal server IP.
I am at a loss and desperate for help.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
