how to redirect web pages

Posted on 2012-09-13

I have two webserver behind a firewall/router: a Linux webserver running apache and Tomcat, and a Windows server running IIS. The router forwards port 80 to the linux/apache host.

What I want to do is, when the linux/apache receives a URL for a particular location, e.g. <a href="Reports">, I would like to have that request forwarded to the WIN/IIS machine to handle.

How do I do this?

    Add a "refresh" line to the head-portion of the resulting web-page on the Linux server, e.g.:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=">

    Open in new window
