refer whole server traffic


hi,

i would like to hide a server from the web and therefore refer all traffic inbound and outbound via another (public) server.
is there a tool to easily configure the public server in order to redirect the requests and vice-versa?

thanks,
toby

are you going to hide a web server or any other server? and what do you mean exactly by the term "hiding"? is it just to hide ip address?

rather than sending all traffic via another server why don't you simply put the server behind a firewall. you can put the server in DMZ zone and allow only http and https access to it.
