Subject [users@httpd] Rewrite problem
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2014 00:05:18 GMT
I took over a domain that was previosly hosted on anther server. The new web 
portal works fine. We still need to access the old portal, which is accessible 
via a nonstandard port like http://oldserver:8080. However, the old web portal 
contains internal absolute links, which now of course point to the new portal. 
So the old portal is broken.

I tried to implement some rewrite rules to prevent the new server to accept 
requests from the old server, but this does not seem to work. I tried:

      RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^$
      RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1 [P]

      RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^$
      RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://localhost:8090...

( represents the IP of the old server). So if the request comes 
from the old server, send it back. If not, process the process local.

The problem is that REMOTE_ADDR does not match the IP of the other server. 
There might be a proxy between. 

Is there a solution, or did I shoot into my knee?
