Subject Virtual Host problems
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2006 10:56:02 GMT

We have a proxy servlet which proxies requests to downstream servers and
we use HttpClient to implement the proxy. We need to pass the Host and
Port that the user had requested for as the Host header to the
downstream system (which is not aware of the proxy) so
Client -->ProxyServer(http-client)-->DownStream	    --> yadayada:8081
						Host header

Now I can use VirtualHost to specify the Host name , but theres no way
to specify the port
Or to use the example from the thread

virtual-host1: yadayada:8081
virtual-host2: blahblah:8082

In order to get a resource form the virtual-host1 do:
bind to
GET /some/stuff HTTP/1.1
Host: yadayada:8081

In order to get a resource from the virtual-host2 do:
bind to
GET /some/stuff HTTP/1.1
Host: blahblah:8082

However we need the proxy to listen on port 80 (and not
8081 or 8082)
Are there any workarounds possible?
