Re: bind hostname and port

Hi,
You mean hoatname insense fully qualified DNS name. In this case, you need to map your relavant ip address to your hostname, this wil be done using resolv.conf when u have DNS server is up on your network.

Refer the following link to do this;

Re: bind hostname and port

hi Dinesh,

one easy method would be to redirect the request to xyz.com to http://hostname:port

This assumes that your default application server (i.e. running on port 80) is xyz.com

More complex, would be to stop the default site (running on port 80) and create new virtual servers at the application server level to run on port 80. (as xyz.com or xyz.org)

if you need further help, post more information on your default website (web server software etc)

hope this helps!

kind regards
