Redirect to other server.
 
I have set up debian-sarge with Apache2 to use as webserver in my DMZ. It's behind a router/firwall and only port 80 is pointing to it. I also have a Windows server doing webmail and RWW on port 443.

To access webmail i would type https://mydomain.com/exchange
To access RWW i would type https://mydomain.com/remote

Everything works fine, but as one is lazy i would like to continue using

mail.mydomain.com and yoda.mydomain.com for RWW

instead today this will take me to my homepage ofcourse.

I have this setup in the DNS servers so that points it to the IP of my router.

I looked in the Apache docs there were som some redirect commands and there was Name-based Virtual Hosts. But I'am not sure how to this. :confused:

Ofcourse it is once you know how :)

About an hour of reading and testing solved the problem.


<VirtualHost *>
ServerName mail.mydomain
redirect / https://mydomain/exchange
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName yoda.mydomain
redirect / https://mydomain/remote
</VirtualHost
