How do i hide the port numbers in my URL?

Hey all
I am running IIS 6.1 and APACHE 2.2
I have IIS default website which IS REQUIRED on port 80 and Apache on port 8080
i have setup iis to forward any request to www.mydomain.com to www.mydomain.com:8080

The problem is i dont want the port number showing in the address bar. Is there any way i can mask it?

I should also add this is quite urgent as this website needs to be deployed within a few hours. No pressure :P

No. The only ports that can be omitted are 80 for http and 443 for https.

Setup a reverse proxy on IIS instead of forwarding (redirecting) the request (if there are such ISAPI filters/extensions available at all, a possible script solution could be http://www.codeproject.com/KB/web-security/HTTPReverseProxy.aspx ).

and please live to tell about it :)

btw, why do you need both web servers? IIS is not my cup of tea, but in many cases it works. Why couldn't you use IIS for everyting?
