Custom HTTP Virtual Servers

When the front-end server receives a request, it sends the request to the corresponding virtual server based on IP address, port number, and host name. If you use the host name to differentiate between your virtual servers, this name should be registered in the Domain Name System (DNS) and the client should use this registered host name as a URL to the server. When the request is proxied from the front-end server to the back-end server, there must be a matching virtual server with the same host header name.

When Exchange is installed, a default HTTP virtual server is installed. Without creating custom HTTP virtual servers, your front-end/back-end configuration uses the default HTTP virtual servers installed with Exchange.

For more information on configuring DNS, see the Windows 2000 online documentation
