How to forward request from IBM HTTP server to IIS web server

I have client had develop by .net and require to IIS Web service for using remoting service (SOAP message).

Possible to use IBM HTTP server to forward request from client to IIS web service.

Normally client direct access to IIS but user they need to put Web server (Any web server on linux platform) between client and IIS

Thank you, for your advice.

why bother with forwarding, just put the IIS server behind a powerful firewall and on its own IP scheme separate from the rest to protect others and publish the data. while IIS sucks compared with Apache and several other FOSS web servers out there, there is no need to jump through hoops.

if the client is foolish enough to use .NET, they suffer the consequences of dealing with MS as their server along with the horrors that is IIS.
