Exactly my thinking

I can second that, works like a charm.

It does require DNS resolving has been setup properly internally as well as externally (as the resolving can differ), and different A records are used for each service- as the reverse proxy handles redirection on the url called when connecting to it.

I haven't used this for Filr, and I remember there being something specific to it, but here are some quick blogged overviews to get the idea:

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 - WEB Server - Enable mod_proxy : Server World

Also note, this is best done on a dedicated SLES/Linux server, that specifically runs for the reverse proxy task and nothing else.

Cheers,
Willem
