Apache, name based virtual hosts and multiple servers.

Hi,

Ive been playing with Apache and name-based virtual hosts for a while now, but, ive been doing it with one single server... now i have the need to forward a name-based request to another server inside the intranet (wich doesnt have a public IP, but a private)...

Something like this:

internet -----> Webserver (name based vhosts) ----> intranet-webserver

Where "webserver" has several domains resolved via name based virtual hosting, and one of those needs to be redirected (or forwarded) to another server on the LAN.

Any ideas on how to do this? i tryed searching the web, but i dont know under which keywords, so i always end on single server virtual hosting help sites.

thanks in advance!

Re: Apache, name based virtual hosts and multiple servers.

you need to define a virtual server for it..but inside that definition.. define a proxy.

Then the middle webserver, will actually handle the request to the intranet server, on behalf of the internet client..and then pass the traffic to the internet client.

this looks like a reasonable example..

namely, the section "Mapping Virtual Servers"

As usual, thanks cactus!!!

I think that will do... i guess mapping was the term i was missing... im going to try and look a bit more about mod_proxy at the apache site.

Thanks again!
