We have a web app installed on WAS 5.0.2 (Base) running on Linux box. We are just using default host
The URL that we have to give is:

<a href="http://<hostname rel="nofollow">:9080/ourAppName" target="_blank">http://<hostname>:9080/ourAppName and

<a href="https://<hostname rel="nofollow">:9443/ourAppName" target="_blank">https://<hostname>:9443/ourAppName after enabling SSL

If I try <a href="http://<hostname rel="nofollow">/ourAppName," target="_blank">http://<hostname>/ourAppName, I get "page not found"

How can I remove the requirement to enter port number after hostname? What configuration do I need to do?


Thanks,<br />P.Ingle

As far as I know if you front the App Server with a Web Server,you can do away with the port business !
I agree. Here's the link:
