You have understood me correctly and I understand what you say in 
principal. I want to do achieve the first case you describe so that if 
they enter it will remain so, if they enter it will redirect as But Im still 
not sure how to do this, when you say mainentry do you mean using dns or 
do you mean the first host in server.xml (currently I just have the 
default localhost confgured).  Then how do I create an alias for the 
second address is 'alias' a  tomcat thing or a dns thing ?
