How can I get my firewall to port forward traffic that is comming into different domain to different servers.

So I have two web servers. Each one hosts different domains on different servers/IP:

first.domain1.com   192.168.1.1  
second.domain2.com  192.168.1.2  

If a request come in on port 80, all traffic goes to 192.168.1.1.

I would like have port 80 traffic split based on the destination domain. A request for first.domain1.com should go to 192.168.1.1 and a request for second.domain2.com should go to 192.168.1.2.

Shorewall (more specifically, iptables) works in the transport layer and is not suitable for making decisions based on application layer HTTP information. What you want is a reverse proxy server. nginx is a good option.
