Subject [users@httpd] Virtual Hosts behind Firewall Router
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2005 19:12:58 GMT

My network looks like this:

[Static IP:64.x.x.x]
[port 80 traffic]___[port 53 traffic]_______[??nothing yet??]
[main srvr:|DNS srvr:|NEW srvr:]

The main server runs Apache 2.0 on OpenSuse and uses name-based virtual 
hosts to host about 5 low-traffic web sites. The DNS server runs BIND.

Now I want to run a new website on the new server, which also runs 
Apache. However, all my port 80 traffic is routed to the main server. 
So, how can I send requests for to the new server 
rather than having it end up at the main server? What would I change in 
the main server's vhosts config (if anything), what would the new 
server's vhosts config look like, and would any of this impact my DNS 

If it creates an easier solution, I wouldn't even care if the new 
server's address had to be where ## was some 
unused port, because the newwebsite is going to be password protected 
for just my own use anyway.

Also, if it sounds like I know what I'm talking about, that's a false 
impression. Please explain things with lots of details. I barely figured 
out the above.

Thanks for any advice. I hope the picture above is clear.
