Hi all.
Using Apache and Joomla for our corp. intranet.

The intranet is accessed by a variety af url's
http://intranet http://intranet2 http://trgnet http://intranet.ourhostname.com

I want to use .htaccess to redirect all access to the full url - http://intranet.company.com

A working example would be great :-)

Thx,
Mark

You could do something like :
Redirect / http://intranet.company.com

You have to be careful if the new webserver is on the same box in case you get caught in a loop.

This also means the web server must be up to resolve these names and server the redirection.

A better way would be to NOT do this in .htaccess but do it all in the DNS server then when they request a page they will end up on the right server without hitting the other web server.
Something like :

intranet        IN      CNAME   intranet.company.com.
intranet2      IN      CNAME   intranet.company.com.
trgnet          IN      CNAME   intranet.company.com.
intranet.ourhostname.com       IN      CNAME   intranet.company.com.

You can check the http host with mod_rewrite only (an other approach would be to use a separate virtual host for all non-full urls and place  Redirect statement there.)

Make sure apache's module  mod_rewrite is loaded and your webserver is configured that you're allowed to use such directives in a .htaccess file.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !=intranet.company.com
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !=""
RewriteRule ^ http://intranet.company.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
