Have you explored the possiblities of creating an "Extranet"? (I've been dying
to use that buzz word!!)
As far as I know, Gauntlet provides the capabilities to use a third network card
that you could place these web servers behind.

Here's my problem. I have Gauntlet installed with three web servers behind
it. The web servers are very light usage/testbeds and the machines they're
on are used for other things. It's not practical to move the web servers
outside of the firewall and the network behind the the firewall has private
(non-routable) IP addresses. Is there any way to get to the three
different web servers through the firewall?
I thought of running a web server on the firewall with an initial page that
pointed to the other webservers, but that was rejected by managment.
If it were just one web server I could just plug port 80. If they ran at
different ports I could plug different ports--but they don't.
I was thinking that perhaps I could assign multiple IP address to the
outside interface of the firewall, give the firewall different aliases with
different IP addresses and somehow run different instances of plug-gw based
on which IP address was connected to. It's the "somehow" part that I'm
having trouble with.
