  • User-704173365 posted

    Hi everyone

    i have a problem.I am running IIS5 on a WinXP machine.My web server is running on port 88 wich is the redirection of port 80 from router.Everything so far is OK.

    The problem that rises is when i want to access my email server from the internet.It is running on the same ip on port 6000.I can use the redirect option from IIS but in this case i will have something like this http://mydomain.com:6000. I dont want the port to be listed in the internet explorer bar.I want something like this http:mydomain.com/mail and this to point internally to my email server wich runs on my internal ip on port 6000(http://10.0.0.2:6000).

    Is it possible to be done like this?Can someone give me a hint,pls?

     Thank you.

    Run your mail server on port(s) 25/110, as expected, and any web interface on port 80.  Then you don't need to specify ports.  Otherwise you do.

    That's one of the downsides of using a desktop OS instead of a full server OS when hosting IIS.

    The server is runing on standard ports 25 and 110 but the web interface goes to port 6000 and i can not change it because on 80 is running already IIS with the web server.

     Anyway,thank you Jeff for your answer.

    Possibly - you may be able to run the email site as another site.

    ok....i do it like this:

    i creat an virtual folder in IIS and i redirect it to my domain and port 6000

    something like this redirect to "http:mydomain.com:6000".On internet explorer i will write

    www.mydomain.com/virtualfoldernameiniis 

     The problem that raises is that after 1st time when i access this link it changes automatic to

    www.mydomain.com:6000

    Is there any possibbility or seting in IIS for the link not to change anymore?

    No, not if that server is running on a non-standard port.
