I have two servers @ home that I want to use for hosting hobby sites. One runs Win 08 server and the other Linux (CentOS). My router ( Linksys WRT54GL) does port forwarding but I want to have port 80 point to both machines based on the domain. Anyone know a way to do this or could point me in the right direction. I really don't want to getting into flashing and potentially bricking my router. And yeah, I did try mod_proxy with Apache but it was just not working out. Some of the apps I host (WordPress and Wiki Media, I think) use URLs with the host name in them ex: http://blah.com/something.html As always, many TIA G! -- Gerald Guido http://www.myinternetisbroken.com

Iis can reverse proxy too. Port forwarding wont work as most routers only allow 1 for ward per port. U could also use dyndns. Regards Russ Michaels From my mobile On 10 Dec 2011 05:30, "Paul Kukiel" <pkukiel@gmail.com> wrote: ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Did you upgrade your router to run an open souce Linux or are you running the original Linksys firmware? Jochem -- Jochem van Dieten http://jochem.vandieten.net/

Look into the DD-WRT firmware for that router...it basically turns in into a linux box as Jochem was talking about...

Than you all for your response. I tried  reverse proxy ala mod proxy and that works. Sort of. If the site uses URLs that includes the host name. One of the apps that I use a lot, Word press, uses the host name in the URL.. and the whole reverse proxy thing goes down the shi... err  drain. That and Trac throws a fit when I try to authenticate while going through the proxy I am aware of the Linux firmware for the router, but I was hoping there was another way to do this for fear of bricking it.

The chances of bricking the router are pretty low. You'd pretty much have to lose power in the middle of the actual flash (doesn't mean it has never happened). I've installed DD-WRT on just about every linksys router I've had (including two WRT54GL routers). Currently, I'm running it on a WRT610N. Installing DD-WRT is the first thing I do to a new Cisco/Linksys home router when I take it out of the box. I think you'll much prefer the control it gives you over your equipment. Another option is to throw together a cheap linux box and install a firewall/router distro like ipcop, ipfire, brazilfw.. (and many others). You could also run a normal distro and use something like firewall builder to make it a firewall/router. The benefit of moving up to a linux distro from DD-WRT is even more control and the ability to install many different packages (like a proxy server) ipfire is an iptables based firewall distro (forked from ipcop and debian based)... it has a TON of addons all tested and ready to be installed right from the web interface. Add-ons list: http://wiki.ipfire.org/en/addons/start these distros are tiny and typically run on anything you have laying around. Some of them are small enough to fit on a single floppy disk and run entirely from RAM. So that's my linux firewall spiel. Cheers .:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.

>>Another option is to throw together a cheap linux box and install a firewall/router distro like ipcop, ipfire, brazilfw.. SWEET. Thanx Bobby! That was just what I was looking for. I would be *much* more inclined to set up a Linux box than start hacking my router. I am sure the DD-WRT/router method would work fine and I would soon be singing it's praises. However, I was looking at the *lengthy* install docs with a bunch of bright red "WARNING!!!!" messages scattered about and I was thinking: "Do I really want to get involved with this?"

Meh. I have dd-wrt on a Buffalo router and it works great. A lot more powerful so more complicated to configure but the actual flashing it aspect was a no-brainer. Also cheaper and uses less power than a dedicated linux box. ;) On 12/11/11 2:09 PM, Gerald Guido wrote: ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

It really is easier than the docs make it seem... download the right files, flash it, done. I only use the smaller store bough routers for access points or for DMZs at home. My modem always plugs into a linux box of one type or another. I envy the fun you are about to have discovering firewall distros. Enjoy. .:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.

>>I envy the fun you are about to have discovering firewall distros. Ha! Ain't that the truth. Any excuse to play with Linux will do just fine. I have it set up on a VM at the moment. I will see if it performs well enough to use that way. If not I have a couple retired machines collecting dust. Thanx again, G!
