multiple servers on port 80


Is there a painless way to allow multiple port 80 sessions to be sent to different pysical web servers.

Assume i have a boring web page about me on one server, but i have some more interesting stuff on another server but on a different address:


needs to go to my server at


needs to go to

The reason is simple. The first machine is apache, and the second machine is IIS

Can this 'steering' be done based on the url?
I have a spare linux box with two nics, could this be used?

Any thoughts??

This should help you rewrite the URL.

If you are doing this because you only have one IP address then you will need to look at apache's proxying features.

Why not mount the "share" from the IIS machine to the Linux box using mount command then assign access thru Apache using virtual hosting?
