I'm testing Kerio Control for congruence for my organization purposes.

My enterprise have 1 public IP, but some public hostnames with A record for this IP.

I write 2 rules:
1) when traffic come to host from internet redirect it to in local network.
2) when traffic come to host from internet redirect it to in local network.

But Kerio Control doesn't discern this 2 rule, and always redirect traffic by the first rule.

Can Kerio Control do what I want, or I must install custom connection broker?

Kerio Control can not deal with this.
I personally hope that Kerio will make this possible soon.
It will make things a lot easier then using other ports.

This is a difficult problem. This only has a chance to work with protocols that utilize a URL based connection scheme (HTTP, for instance). This won't work for other protocols like Telnet, FTP, RTP, SMTP, POP, PPTP, etc.

If this is only for HTTP/HTML traffic, there are a few ways to address this, outside of Kerio writing the deep packet inspection engine for inbound HTTP requests:

1. Virtual web sites are designed to deal with this situation. This is free, but you would have to use the same server for all the websites, unless you utilized redirection. You would be back to using a separate port per server on the inbound. At least with redirection, you wouldn't require the user to enter that. I solve this problem using this functionality.

2. Server load balancing. This is a bit more elegant, but also a bit more expensive. You'd be looking at F5, A10, Brocade, etc. solutions. Cisco just quit providing such products (ACE).
