* Add another real-world IP to your firewall (might be impossible if you
have a normal non-business connection (dsl, cable) since the ISP's don't
like to assign more IP's)
* Add another LAN-ip on your IIS server (eg you have now 10.0.0.100 , add
10.0.0.101 on the LAN-nic)
* Let IIS listen on the current LAN-ip (it often listens by default on
0.0.0.0 = all nics)
* Let Red5 listen on port 80 on the new LAN-ip (eg 10.0.0.101)
* Let the firewall route port 80 for it's second IP to the new lan-ip on
Virtual directories or virtual hosts or vhosts are only available within a
so if it (the daemon) listens on port XXX then it can do virtual hosting but
share the same port with another application or server like Red5.
Red5 does a form of virtual hosts too ; you can host more than 1 application
on the same IP/hostname but each
application is a unique application and operates indepedantly of the other
But the easiest way is ; let them open port 1935 in the firewall and let it
point to your IIS-box, prolly a political issue.
