We have a network exposed externally through a static IP address. Our main SBS 2011 server hosts the remote/mail website (, while another IIS server on the network hosts our clients website (

However, I can't make http requests to bounce from the SBS to the other IIS, where that website is actually hosted.

Could you please help me set this up? Thanks

Is not publicly visible? Do you mean that you want requests from the public internet to be routed through Your question isn't very clear. – Kev Feb 24 '12 at 12:56 is not publicly visible. We have only one external IP, so all http requests come to the Windows Business Server. But the clients website is on a different server... so I need to redirect/route requests to the right server. – Emged Feb 24 '12 at 14:35
"But the clients website is on a different server." as in it's on ? – Kev Feb 24 '12 at 16:03
Kev, forget the names of the websites.. basically, we have two websites, each in a different IIS on the network.. But we have only one external IP, hence our need to set up a proxy/redirect.. – Emged Feb 24 '12 at 17:02

Check out Application Request Routing... it is the only way to proxy requests the way you are describing. It provides request routing logic: -Chris
