Maps on different IPs



If we set up multiple IPs for the PRTG server and allow the webserver on both is it possible to define which interface a map is available on, we want to use a scenario where a public published map is only available on the internal interface to the network and a secure map is able to be published on the other Internet facing interface. What we are trying to achieve is that internal users don't require a log in to view certain maps but that these maps will not be available on the internet.

For anyone interested in doing the same (Allow public maps internally and only secured maps externally).

The way it can be achieved is to utilize an IIS7.5 server siting between the PRTG webserver and the internet, use IIS to rewrite requests coming in from the internet and set up a rule that drops or 'denies' any url that contains the string 'public'. If your internal users route through that IIS server you will also need to add a rule/s to allow access on your internal IP range/s.

This effectively drops any request to a public map but still allows access to the secured maps.
