At production server, IIS and GeoServer are installed. I can access IIS at port 80 From out side the production environment. i also want to access GeoServer at the same port 80 from out side of production environment, Like But, i could not access GeoServer at port 80.

Is it possible to access both IIS and Geoserver at port 80 ? Actually I do not want to open any other port for accessing GeoServer. Is there any solution available for accessing both Geoserver and IIS at port 80 ?

need for useful suggestion for solving this problem

You need to set up a proxy under IIS - see How to configure Proxy.cgi with IIS or google geoserver iis for more discussions.

+1 to iant use a proxy.

or you can install Tomcat 6.0.3 (7 has issues with geoserver)

then edit tomcat/conf/server.xml file - set the proxy in the file

set incoming traffic routed to localhost:80

Edit the Inbound Rule in IIS

See for full details

We have implemented this. All you need to do is install the Application Request Routing module and the URL rewrite module on IIS. Then create a rule in URL rewrite to direct all geoserver calls from IIS to your java container port. e.g. you can refer to "/geoserver/wms" in your open layers code but URL rewrite rule can redirect this to "http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wms" (assuming port 8080 runs geoserver).
