Subject Redirect "HOST" to "HOST:PORT"
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2008 16:49:26 GMT
> I'm running tomcat 5.0 in a SUSE environment.

> "https://app.server:8443/myapp/servlet/login" (this is made with an
> index.htm in the ROOT context). What I have been looking for is to avoid

> redirect to work the same. But I cant find the way to do this.
> I've been working on this locally, trying to make "localhost" to jump to

> I don't use HTTPS. 
> I know it doesn't make much diference because most users have bookmarks,

> and supporting the rest of the users too. For them to remember the port is
> a little awkward because the concept is not clear.
