    I have a client that is hosting 2 domains on single webserver. He has 5 static external ip address. He wants to assign or dedicate ip address on each domain. The server is behind the router.....normally in setting up a webserver behind a router you just assign static ip address then open the necessary port for that server & it will work. But the thing here is if you are behind the router the webserver will work but the 2 domains hosted on that server will share 1 WAN ip there any work around on this one? I'll appreciate it if anyone could give any suggestions.....thanks a lot.

    Put a switch in front of the router? I don't think you can use a router to manage two dedicated IP's (not a simple router, at least) as the point of a router is to route one IP to multiple IPs.

    It can be done in a number of different ways. As said, a switch would be one option, then assign the IPs to the NIC card and bind the virtual servers to the IP address you want. In this case, you would want to be sure you have a hardware firewall between the server and the switch. You can view an example (sans the firewall) here -

    Another way would be to pick up something like a Cisco PIX 501 which can deal with more then one IP address.
