Subsonic with IIS Solution (i.e. on Windows Home Server)

Postby j3rky » Wed Mar 24, 2010 4:20 am

I thought I'd let everyone know that I quickly put together a reverse proxy for IIS 6.0. While the implementation should work with many other web applications, I primarily wrote and tested it for Subsonic on Windows Home Server.

The proxy allows you to access Subsonic from your personal website without having to revert to network ports other than port 80.

I have successfully tested this solution with multiple simultaneous users on Subsonic. The CPU overhead is relatively small and adds about 50% on top of what Subsonic is consuming.

I put together a description and installation instructions on my blog and hope that everything is understandable. The whole thing is free and comes with full source code. Constructive feedback is highly appreciated.

I finally manged to get the proxy running on my IIS7 on Windows 2008 x64 server.
The only problem that still exists is about links within the subsonic app.

I created a virtualDir in IIS and installed the reverseproxy.
So all the traffic is redirected from http://localhost/Subsonic to http://localhost:95
The main subsonic application is now working but the are still links with does not use the redirected server string.

Any idea?
