redirect port 8080 to 80

Posted on 2004-10-19
Last Modified: 2010-03-04
I'd like to make Apache listen on ports 80 and 8080. The same content is to be served on both ports. I'm using Fedora Core 2. I tried setting up a virtual host but I'm getting Unable to connect to remote host. Can't access startfile http://localhost:8080/

thanks ramazanyich, but it has to do with the firewall, if I "service iptables stop" it works.
