I try to make it more transparent:
I want to host several Typo3 CMS sites via NamevirtualHosts(80), the 
administratration backend resides in a directory which is redirected to 
a SSL enabled vhost(443), all vhost backends are mapped to directories 
of the SSL vhost (I want to waste only 1 IP / serversystem).
Each backend has its docroot under their own directory on the SSL vhost 
and is generating a preview of the edited content which have to be 
redirected to the original vhost where the normal site resides...
The redirect should be triggered only if the referer is the script which 
calls the preview URL...

that´s a point I missed, I´ll check it...

that´s something I thougt of to do before go live in productive 
environment, thanks for pushing me to do it now :-)

Thanks for this useful hint, if I run into a new tarpit, I scream for 
more help ;-)
