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 www.google.com and
the computer with the ip address 192.168.2.2 serves pages for that
website. But, another friend owns the website www.yahoo.com, 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).
