Subject Re: How to stop having to put :8080 in the url?
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 13:04:34 GMT
En l'instant précis du 11/04/08 14:55, Gary Opela (Corporate) 
s'exprimait en ces termes:
>  Now I can access my application by going to http://localhost/arsys 
without specifying the port. However, now if I go to http://localhost, 
then it redirects me to Tomcat's default page. Is there a way to leave 
the above line referencing port 8080, as that's where I want tomcat to 
run from, but then tell IIS to redirect my localhost/arsys traffic to 
reference port 8080?
>  Thanks,

See the proxy support from tomcat. Basically, you instruct iis to act as 
a "proxy" for http://server/arsys* urls and to forward them to your 
internal tomcat on port 8080. You only have to instrcut tomcat about the 
server and port the end-user is seeing, so that servelt / jsps that 
build urls build them properly.
