    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
    To access RWW i would type

    Everything works fine, but as one is lazy i would like to continue using and 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 *>
    ServerName yoda.mydomain
    redirect / https://mydomain/remote
