Subject Re: 2 httpds on 1 server

It is no problem if you use mod_redirect and mod_proxy to proxy the 
connections to either www server.

Why not simply run your httpd server on the two ips and forget about the two 
strange ports (8080 and 8090) ?  apache has no problem binding virtual hosts 
with multiple ip addresses.

Or, finally, to do your port to ip proxying you could use a firewall with 
port/ip redirection - I know that both Checkpoint FW1 and IPFW both do this 
(I dont really know any other firewalls).

Good Luck,
