Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to map http://www.myaddress.com to http://www.myaddress.com:8000 ?

No, there isn't. There are--or were--providers like dyndns that would also
do port and server re-mapping in addition to dynamic DNS aliasing.

Hello.
Forgive me if this has been handled in the Archives. I've tried
searching different key words but I haven't
found anything.

I have an apache server running on port 8000.
This necessitates typing http://www.myaddress.com:8000 to get to my home
page.

I would like to be able to drop the ":8000" in the url and still have it
work.

The relevant parameters in /etc/apache/httpd.config seem to be:
Port 8000 - I set this to get around my company's firewall
#Listen - This is commented out, but from the apache docs, I think this
would just tell the server to listen on port 8000 (or the default 80)
but that the
               port no. would still need to be specified in the url
request (?)
#NameVirtualHost *:80 - From the docs I can see how this can be used so
that a single apache server can handle web requests to different
ip:ports differently,
                                        but I don't see how it could be
used for my purpose.

I guess I'm asking if there is any way to configure the server so that
http:/www.myaddress.com is assumed to be on port 8000 rather than 80 ?

Thanks!
