Redirecting incoming IP to another machine
Posted on 1998-04-06
running AIX 3.2.5 -- this is our existing web server that we are migrating data off of. Running NCSA 1.5, I want to redirect incoming httpd requests to a new/temp machine that is behind a firewall and not in DNS. Both machines are behind the firewall, but the existing server is configured to allow world access to it. I've got the web pages set up to reload the new pages on the new/temp server, but for people outside of the firewall, they try to resolve the new/temp host name with DNS lookup, which fails. Is there a way I can create something like a HOSTS file on the old server that points to the new/temp server without having to go thru a DNS lookup? This is only temporary until we replace the existing webb server with new hardware.
