Thanks for the information.  I'll read up on the IIS ISAPI plugin and if
I have any more questions, I'll post them.

Hi Tony,

the Tomcat project has a sub project called Tomcat Connectors or simply
JK. It produces web server plugins to connect the most important web
servers directly to Tomcat via a special protocol named AJP. Tomcat has
an incoming AJP connector built-in.

The Tomcat connectors include Apache httpd modules as well as an IIS
ISAPI plugin and a Netscape/Sun NSAPI plugin.

So you would need to download

an appropriate binary of the IIS plugin, configure and include the
plugin correctly for your IIS to establish a reverse proxy function for
your IIS. The most recent version of the plugin is 1.2.25.

The Tomcat connectors website

contains documentation. The IIS plugin documentation might not be the
best part of it, but in case you get stuck, you can post more specific
questions to this list.

I assume, that by "Apache" in your post you always meant Tomcat. If you
meant Apache HTTPD web server, then I might have not completely
understood your actual or planned setup.
