I am running out of IP's in a DMZ I have... I have a CSS in there.... Can I run a webserver on a different port of one of my servers.... and use the css to translate inbound port 80 and/or 443 traffic to the correct port based on URL?

What would that be called I've been looking at things on port mapping and redirection but haven't found a thing yet...

You sure can..

You just need to define a different port number in service configuration

In the following example CSS is expecting the client traffic on Virtual ip y.y.y.y and on port 80. Content rule web_servers will loadbalance the connection between server1 (x.x.x.1) & Server2 (x.x.x.2) and "port 8080" under service config will translate the destination port to port 8080.

content Web_Servers

add service server1

add service server2

vip address y.y.y.y

vip-ping-response local-remote

protocol tcp

port 80


service server1

ip address x.x.x.1

port 8080

protocol tcp


service server2

ip address x.x.x.2

port 8080

protocol 8080
