Hey Community
I have some questions , and i´d love to hear some responses.
I have a virtualized environment at home ... DC-1 , DC-2 , GW-1 , WEB-01 and some client and application VM´s running.
GW-01 and WEB-01 are not part of the domain mcsa.local
I have setup WS2012-r2 on all machines.
And on WEB-01 is IIS role installed , and i only use the IP address , i dont have a www domain.
My questions are these : 
question 1. What is the best practice for this setup ?
question 2. And how do I forward http requests from gw-01 to Web-01 ? (do i do that in DNS or do I do that in Routing and remote access MMC console ?)
question 3(not necessary to answer this one). How do I add a second site easily , and how do I visit the second site from the outside ( do i surf to x.x.x.x/secondsite? )
Any step-by-step guide would be really helpful, on how i would do this so that external computers can visit my website that is hosted on WEB-01.
