What I fail to get in all of this, is the need to involve Rewrite's and all that stuff.

First a basic question : are all these "difficult users", and this webserver, inside the same
corporate network (or the same "company.com" 
domain) ?
If not, then maybe tell these users to go be difficult with someone else, after they have
learned how an internet/intranet works.

If yes, then all you need is :

1) that the users workstations and the internal corporate network DNS system be set up properly
so that the hostname "tracking" properly resolves to the same IP address as "tracking.mycompany.com".
That has nothing to do with the webserver itself, but is essential for the rest to work. Ask
the company's network admin for help if needed.

2) in your webserver configuration, presumably you already have a line like ServerName tracking.mycompany.com

Yes ? then just add a line below it like ServerAlias tracking

and that should do it.

To check (1) : any of these users workstation should be able to open a console window and
type "ping tracking", and see an echo from your webserver. Before that works, the rest will
not.


I'm still miffed also as to why people would prefer to type "h t t p : / / t r a c k i n g"
rather than clicking on a bookmark or an icon.
It takes all kinds I guess.
