Split Portal Login

Looking to see how possible the following is:

Currently our Portal is using pass-through authentication and works well for inside out firewall. With current working conditions, we have a need for the portal to be available to outside sources as well. Is it possible to have the log in landing page show up when visiting from a different address or port or do we need to set up a different portal for that function?

If we need to set up a new portal for login landing can we point it to the same Cireson DB? Do we have to purchase a second license for the portal?

Best case would be:

Portal.insidedomain.com would be pass-through authentication

Portal.outsidedomain.com Login landing page.

Any input would be great,

    We accomplish the need via our load balancer, this way our email notification with portal urls all work regardless of user or connection method.

    Basically based on inbound IP the load balancer determines if it is for the SSO portal or the forms based portal. Then based on the IP rule it routes to the correct web server. All the webservers are standard Cireson Portal servers that all connect to the same database with the single license. We just flip the SSO or Forms in the IIS configuration. This also grants us the ability to fail over to a different web server if the forms server goes offline. HTH

    Requirements for this to work

    1. network load balancer that can support IP filtering.
    2. At least 2 web servers.
