Hi, I have never used a rewriter before and I have what I think is a simple, common siutation. I read through some examples and I just can't figure out the syntax and the setup. please help.

I have one public IP address and several Virtual Machines running servers on internal IP addresses.  I have 2 domains all pointing at the public IP address. So:

  • Public IP: 173.999.213.14
  • Internal VMs:,,,
  • my hardware router routes all traffic on the public IP to a VM that I want to act as a rewriter appliance:  173.999.213.14 ->

And I want the rules running on the rewriter appliance to do the following:

  • -> (VM running ASP.NET on Windows Server 2003)
  • -> (VM running PHP on Windows Server 2003, also needing remote desktop access)
  • -> (VM running PHP on Apache, Linux)

Ideally if possible I would like all IP traffic routed this way, no matter what port it's on (eg remote desktop 3389, or HTTPS 443) or what kind of pages (PHP, ASP, HTML).

I would hope this is easy with a base setup and 3 rules, but at this point I can't figure out if it's even possible.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
