Subject Trouble setting up virtual host
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 19:10:43 GMT
I am hoping you can help me.  I am trying to get a DNS entry that we set 
up (alias to point to another page on 
our Crystal Reports Server (Infoview). 

We are running Tomcat 5.5.20.  I was told I need to set up a virtual host, 
I need to point the DNS entries to the logon.jsp page that is located in 
the Tomcat55\webapps\InfoViewApp\ directory. 

When I type in the above website from the server however, I get the 
default Tomcat home page.  So essentially I need to set it up so that the 
URL to the logon page is redirected to or and not the current - 

Any suggestions, this is all new to me.


<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">

    <!-- Used by Manager webapp -->
    <Resource name="UserDatabase" auth="Container"
       description="User database that can be updated and saved"
          pathname="conf/tomcat-users.xml" />

  <Service name="Catalina">
    <Connector port="80" />

    <Connector URIEncoding="UTF-8" acceptCount="100"

enableLookups="false" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxSpareThreads="75" 
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" port="8080" redirectPort="8443"/>
