Subject Re: [users@httpd] name-based virtual hosting and NAT
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2003 11:36:07 GMT


Yes the local IP is the only one apache knows about, that is my problem.

Everything works great when the alias resolves to the local IP, but the 
idea is for people from outside to be able to see the site, so the alias 
HAS to resolve to the outside IP. Because of NAT however the request is 
comming into apache at the local IP.

It might work when I setup DNS in such a way to resolve to the local IP 
when Apache does the lookup and to the external IP when someone from 
outside does the lookup. However this seems like an overcomplicated 

Regardless of what I would like to do, I would like to know if my 
findings are true that Apache needs the aliases to resolve to an adress 
it knows and listens to, why on earth it would bother about that and how 
to overcome it?
