djbdns exteral cache

I have a question about domains, dns and ipadresses.

At the moment I have two domains, and I want to set up two separate web servers and two separate mail servers for these domains. They HAVE to be set up on two different boxes. I.e box1 contains web server1 and mail server1, while box2 contains web server2 and mail server2.

Now given these circumstances, would it be possible to set this up on a local NATed network with only one external IP?

The problem of course is that when i set up my first web server I forward port 80 to the first box, and then I have to use another port for the second web server so my clients have to type e.g. :81 after the URL in their browser.

Is there a way to avoid having to type the port number in the browser address line in this particular case?

The same problem will of course happen with mail as there is only one default port.

All boxes will be set up using linux, apache, qmail and djbdns. I will have my own dns server(tinydns) representing these domains.

Thanks for any replies

Edit: I'm not getting any answers here... Is this not possible? Should I just wait until I can get my hands on two separate external IPs?

hey, don't be so impatient....

in the abscence of having a small primary server to proxy both sites, i'd suggest using one box to proxy the other via mod_proxy in apache.
