Subject Re: Redirect "HOST" to "HOST:PORT"
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2008 17:15:33 GMT
Just use the same trick you already do. This time, instead of putting 
your index.html at ROOT, put it under the root folder of an apache httpd 
server for that host. This assumes you run an apache httpd server on 
that server and it listens to port 80. a écrit :
