I have the following network/server setup:
Since this is for a startup I'm working on with a friend using the resources we have, we use a DD-WRT router to redirect port 80 requests to a specific server, and we're using a free no-ip domain for now, so no subdomains. Now, the problem is:
I need to add a second server which must host .NET apps and I need it as a separate machine. Thing is, port 80 requests go to the first server, not to the second one. I could make it use another port, but I don't want to since it is not what I'm looking for.
My idea is to create a THIRD IIS server that would host virtual directories (?) so that, /someApp goes to the first server and /anotherApp goes to the second server. This is so that I can take offline the 2nd server without affecting the first one. I wouldn't be able to access /anotherApp, but /someApp wouldn't go offline, that's why I don't want to create the virtual directory in the first server.
Let me rephrase:
Is there a way to have something like this:
http://mydomain.com:80/someApp -> 192.168.1.100:80/someApp http://mydomain.com:80/anotherApp -> 192.168.1.200:80/anotherApp
I wonder, is this possible? and if so, how? ISAPI redirect? HTTP rewrite? would I have problems with sessions and cookies? help! :(
Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
