ASA - 1 public IP supporting multiple HTTP inbound connections?

Unanswered Question
Feb 2nd, 2010

Hi There,

We are running multiple test websites with host headers enabled on the servers. I want to know if the Cisco ASA 5510 can be configured to pass on the requests to these internal servers based on the domain name rather than the IP address and port number.

I particularly want to use one public IP address to support HTTP inbound access to these sites. Is it possible?

Much appreciated,

I don't think there is any device that can route based on things different than ip addresses.

If you question is if you can use domain names in the ACLs or statics the answer is no. You can use names instead of ip addresses in the ACLs and statics and change the names in the config though.

You can use one static ip for multiple inbound connections.

I hope it helps.
