Re: [users@httpd] Newbie - Apache as internet facing proxy for Windows/IIS backend .net app server?

Ok, thanks!

But to be clear - I asked the Support people and was told, and I quote:

"The Webvantage, Client Portal and Mobile Server applications are .Net IIS applications that require Microsoft Windows and IIS."

So... was that just a typical response from a Windows support person who doesn't really understand web servers?

The software in question is described here:


I don't mind doing the work, I'd just rather not go down a rabbit hole trying to do something that can/will never work.

Thanks again,

Hello all,

I just want to know if this is even worth my time trying to figure out.

We have an Accounting application (.ne/IIS on Windows Server 2008R2) on our LAN, but I need to provide a window to this through the internet, and I'd really, really like to not put a Windows Server on our DMZ facing the internet directly (if I have to, it will be a separate/standalone server that redirects/proxies to the Accounting server).

first and foremost - is it even possible to setup an Apache server to do this? I loathe IIS, and also don't know much about it, but I'm also pretty much a noob when it comes to web servers in general. I do have some experience a while back with Apache, which is why I'm starting here.

If it isn't, so be it, but if it is, is it very involved?
