This is not going to work for OPs question. I just had a look, and this podcast basically points to this web page: <>

The writer of this article uses pf to redirect different ports to different jails, which is fine, assuming that every jail serves different services (so a jail offering smtp, a jail offering a webserver, a jail offering mysql), however if you want to have multiple jails serving a webserver, you only can redirect port 443 (or 80) once.

You will need a reverse proxy to redirect services based on the name to different jails. Shouldn’t be too hard, I guess.

A quick search on google found me this one: <>
