Proxy(?) question: multiple instances of same service, accessed viahost-header.
Out of all of the things I learned, this should have been one of
them --- but, alas... can't ask for everything can I? =P
At my home, I have a 4-server network environment, hosting things
for my friends (game servers, web server, ect). All of these
computers are seen as one IP from the Internet (like a single-
connection to the Internet would bring for a home user). An issue
arises from this when my friend's users need to access resources on
say, a different computer than another friend's users are accessing.
For example, say one friend owns the web address [url]www.google.com[/url] and
the computer with the ip address 192.168.2.2 serves pages for that
website. But, another friend owns the website [url]www.yahoo.com[/url], which
coincidentally is served by the computer with the Ip 192.168.2.15.
As, any network techinician knows: the router/gateway that's
connected to the Internet will only serve the port 80 from one of the
two physical servers hosting the websites. So, I suspect there is
some form of proxy out there that will get the content from the
appropriate computer via means of a host-header. Unfortunately, I do
not know of any. Could someone please recommend me to one or more of
them (cost-effective, if possible).
Thank you for your time.
(Please note that webservers are not the only things I want to mirror,
but ftp as well (If possible).
