 Natd and LSNAT
Author: crallz

Is it possible to setup nat to redirect certain domain names to certain web servers on my local network. Right now I have all http requests going to 1 web server using the following arguments to natd

-redirect_port tcp 172.16.0.1:80 80

172.16.0.1 being my web server of course. I have another web server that I would like to start serving websites from but i'm having trouble trying to figure out how I can get some domain names to go to the second web server. I've been reading about LSNAT and server pooling but the argument given for server pooling in the natd man page doesn't seem to work. I tried to run it like this

natd -redirect_port tcp ww1:80,ww2:80 mydomain.com:80

and i get an error about "aliasing address not given".... Any help on this would be much appreciated even if the answer is "No you can't do it"

If all else fails i'll just get 2 IP's for each web server i'm going to run. One for the gateway and one for the web server and just forward them that way.

i would suppose you might need an internal nameserver, or maybe set it up in your hosts file.? something like...

>hosts
#external
205.xxx.xxx.xxx fianna.domain.com fianna gw webserver.domain.com

#internal
192.xxx.xxx.1 fiannaGateway.gw.domain.com fiannaGateway
192.xxx.xxx.2 fiannaWebserv.gw.domain.com fiannaWebServ
