Subject Re: Drop port and hide multiple servers behind one fixed address?
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2001 05:44:58 GMT
Thanks Joshua,

I've just had a look through the name based virtual
hosting and I'm not certain this is what I want or not.

To simplify things a bit what I want is the 
following.  Lets say I have two physical servers 
behind a firewall.  On the first is apache.
On the second is MS IIS.  They are accessable
using the following URL's


Server one has an IP Address of
Server two has an IP address of

These reside behind a firewall in a DMZ.
The address of the firewall is

The redirection currently looks like this: -> ->

What I'd like to be able to do is allow someone
who points their browser to http://www.otherdomain
to not reach www.domain but www.otherdomain
At the moment you have to specify www.otherdomain:8001 to reach the other domain.

How would I configure apache to do this?
Can I do it without the current port redirection?
