Default Host based router that is not Cisco

Hello,

I host a small lab web server and so far I have been using just home routers such as D-Link etc, to do port forwarding on any traffic that comes on port 80 to forward it to my internal IIS server. IIS server than looks at the domain name that the traffic is coming in and points it to a specific directory.

I would like to use another application that has a webserver built in but it does not utilizes IIS. It does utilize port 80. So I am looking for a fairly reasonably priced GUI router, in which I can have the router look at host name that the traffic is coming into and then redirect it to different internal IP address on port 80.

The reason I can't do this with my router currently is because it doesn't let me add more than one port forwarding rule for one port. i.e: I can only forward any traffic that comes in on port 80 to only one internal IP address.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Adam.

Welcome to our woodworking router forum Adam. Despite the fact that this is a different type router forum than you expected, there will probably be someone coming to join in who can answer your question.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Might start here...

Four Ways to Transform That Old PC Into a Powerful Router

By the way, Google(or YOUR fav search engine) is your friend!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Lmao I can't believe someone would join a wood router forum for this . You'd think at some point they would realize something's amiss ?
I feel doubtful they resolved the issue themselves

It does happen, somewhat frequently. I have only seen one or two actually reply to their thread admitting that didn't realize this was a woodworking forum.

If you're doing a lot of port forwarding, maybe NAT isn't the best solution.

You could ask your ISP to give you an IP block, then assign each of your
PC's a WAN IP instead of a LAN one.
