View Full Version : Webserver : Apache / IIS integration

11-11-2004, 07:38 PM
Got a problem, for which I cannot seem to work out a solution. Maybe some1 can fill me in, that is : if it's possible in the first place.

I am running 2 webservers on a local network. One is running on Apache the other on IIS. To the outside world I made both servers available, Apache on port 80, IIS on port 1080.

On the IIS server, I have a very nice webmailclient, built in ASP .net. However, in my current setup, I can only reach it on port 1080, which has a lot of disadvantages, proxy servers not allowing port 1080 to pass being the biggest.

Is there some way, to have apache open the IIS page for a visitor, for example on address http://myserver/webmail ?? (So that I can view both my Apache served pages as well as my IIS served pages over port 80)

A client-side solution (iframes or whatever) is not an option I think, as Apache will have to find the IIS server on it's local name (got only 1 external hostname/ip). Guess I need to do something to my Apache configuration or use some kind of server-side-something.

Solved it :) Got the answer from a friend. Apache seems to be able to proxy the IIS pages :D

I have similar problem where Apache is installed on UNIX and would like to forward some of the .asp request to IIS on windows.

I would appreciate if you could you let us know how you did the integration ?

Thanks in advance.

if your iis is running a server os you can use a "new website" in the iis settings to redirect domains/subdomains to a port on another machine on the network, eg:

get your router to point port 80 at the iis machine (only if it is a SERVER os)
get the iis machine to run default website to port 80 on the unix machine, and new website (on a different domain/subdomain) to port 80 on the windows machine, this can also (optionally) be used to point the whole url at a specific directory or file, eg:
www.domain.com, domain.com -->

note: windows operating systems such as xp pro support iis but are not server operating systems (look for "server" in the os name if you arent sure :))

Can't you just add a "RedirectPermanent" to the apache httpd2.conf file to forward the requests?
