I've got IIS running on 2 servers with one external IP. RunningĀ  6.0 on the main and 7.0 on the other. The second server is running SharePoint as well and needs to be accessed from the outside. I could probably change the port 80 on that server and then reconfigure the router but I'd prefer to leave that as it is. Is there a way to somehow reconfigure IIS on the main server to redirect to the other one when request are coming to a particular header?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you running a web site on the non-SharePoint machine? If not, just point port 80 to the SharePoint server.

If you are running a web site on the other server, use another port and a designation for the SharePoint server. For example, point port 8080 to the SharePoint server, and use sp as the server designation in your DNS settings. A user would then type in sp.mydomain.com:8080 to reach the SharePoint server from the outside.

You would want to make this a secure connection as well.
