Let us say I have two dns records: a.example.com b.example.com

I configured my routeros to act as a reverse web proxy for these two urls and forward the traffic to the local ip address of the server. while this works fine if both web applications use port 80, my second application b.example.com is actually on port 6666, and I cant change that because both applications are in the same local server but different application servers, IIS and Apache. how can I configure b.example.com so if the user request it without specifying the port number, the reverse web proxy will forward the traffic to b.example.com:6666 without redirecting the user and the ports appear to him on the link

Post the relevant configuration please. Especially given that RouterOS has no web proxy built in at all, so you could not just configure it. –  TomTom Mar 8 '14 at 6:38
It does have a proxy, haven't seen "reverse proxy" anywhere though. wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:IP/Proxy –  Grizly Apr 30 '14 at 1:59
