URL Redirection

Hi All,

This may seem fairly simple I have a a Confluence server running on 192.168.X.X:8090 - I would like uses on my network to be able to simply type in Confluence in their web browser and be redirected to the 192.168.X.X:8090.

I have tried DNS but as you know we have limitations in that you cannot specify ports.

Any one know ways arount this ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Kamal,

Have you tried URL rewrite as per this past answer - https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/43544/url-rewrite-with-confluence

Else, another workaround would be using Apache with mod_proxy: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Apache+with+mod_proxy

Try it and then let me know what works for you.

Awesome I will give this a go and report back by tomorrow.

Could you run Confluence on port 80 and then you won't need to add the port? Or is running on 80 not possible for some reason?
