Subject Re: simple virtual host question
Date Sun, 25 Jan 2004 18:30:01 GMT
Thank you Miquel. Let me repeat what you are saying. Essentially, I set 
up a host element entry in my server.xml with my lan servers IP. The 
router, when it receves a request to IP will translate 
that request into and sent it to the lan server.

Thanks again.


Dear Dan,

If you want to use Virtual hosting based on Server name you need to use 
the servername you have. If you an internet domain and you want your lan 
server to be accessed from the internet, then you have to use that 

About the IPs, you need to use the lan IP, not the router one. If the 
router is using NAT then It will make the translation for you.
