Subject [users@httpd] ReWriteRules on apache for mingle
Date Fri, 11 Jun 2010 05:59:38 GMT

We installed mingle (an application running on port 8080) on a
computer on our LAN.

It is accessible http://<IP of mingle>:8080

Some one can within LAN can see a URL

and a login page he gets.

We have a webserver which is where the main website of our organization is.

Server A---------------------------------------------------------------Server B

Public IP-----------------------------------------------------------
A website is running  here
Sysadmins govern it-------------------------------------------( We
want to run mingle also here.)

I need to tell the sysadmin what

ReWriteRule they have to put so that
mingle is accessible on internet.

The computer on which mingle is installed also has a website running
on Apache port 80.
To access that from internet some one will type in
and on the server which is available to world is having a proxy pass

in Apache vhost as follows

ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

So some one from internet can reach the site.
which is running on

We want mingle running on to be accessible as

I suggested the sysadmin to write a ReWrite Rule on Server A as follows

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
ReWriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^/mingle(.*)$1 [R]

but if some one accesses it from within our network then

we can see it

the above URL immediately gets replaced to

On LAN it is directly accessible by IP also so it is not a problem.

But if some one from internet does that then they are not able to
reach the login page.
So what can/should I added delete in the ReWriteRule.
