You'll have to use mod_rewrite for this, and you'll have to make sure that
you're using internal redirects (or forwards) instead of exernal
redirects.  This will require that you have mod_proxy installed as well.

So something like this may work:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/(.*)/(.*)$  http://www.myserver.com:8080/$2 [P,L]

What rewrite config did you try before?
