url ghosting issue
Hi. I have a situation in which URL ghosting would be helpful, but have absolutely no idea how to do it. Here's the situation:
I have a website, http://dudenet.sytes.net, which is powered by two webservers: one main server on port 80, and one for webmail on port 8081. I'd like to have http://dudenet.sytes.net/mail point to http://dudenet.sytes.net:8081/mail without the URL bar showing the :8080. The method I currently use is a <redirect> directive (I use apache 2.something) in the httpd.conf to do send "/mail" to "http://dudenet.sytes.net:8081/mail", but that lacks url ghosting. Does anyone have any ideas?

You could try using an invisible frame, setting the frame properties to have one fram 0% high, the other 100% high with the redirect used above in this frame.
This is a bit of a bodge, and the url will not change AT ALL, but it might do.

mmm... That was a good idea, and in any other situation that would work, but something in the webmail page must be refreshing the window, because it still does the same thing as before: a complete redirect with the url I don't want to see.
Any other ideas?

Your other option is to map a dns name to that address, like mail.dudeznet.net or something. Depends on the level of access to your host.

I'll try and find a JS to ghost the URL (there has to be one somewhere!), since the only thing I can do with my subdomains is wildcarding.
Thanx for the help.
