Hi

We have application that is running on apache webserver. when we want to access the server we will type
http://abc.cc.com/appname/
now we have create a siteminder agent that is used for authenticating users to access the application.
something like below.
http://siteminder.cc.com/apps?url=http://abc.cc.com/appname/
the above url brings up the screen for authentication and will redirect the it to http://abc.cc.com/appname/ after authentication.

Problem: we have created alias for the application on the network ex: http://appname.cc.com/ now we have big problem in redirecting the alias name to http://siteminder.cc.com/apps?url=http://abc.cc.com/appname/ (siteminder)

so it looks something like below
http://appname.cc.com/(alias) --> http://siteminder.cc.com/apps?url=http://abc.cc.com/appname/ (authentication) --> http://abc.cc.com/appname/ (location of the apps)

Now after creating alias it is coming till root directory that is http://abc.cc.com/ and showing folders of other apps.

My Question is how to create alias that will redirected to url http://siteminder.cc.com/apps?url=http://abc.cc.com/appname/ (siteminder).

Is there anyway we can map the alias name to above url.

Thanks
