Tim,

Thank you for your insight. But i am not sure how your solution would work because please note that my end user url would be in domain1 and my server is in internal domain2 ?? Also, on which machine would I modify the hosts file ??? I cannot modify the hosts file of 1000s of end users !! Additionaly, if i modify the hosts file, the destination address (server address in domain 2) would show up in the address bar for the users, wouldnt it ?

Thanks

I recently installed business objects software on tomcat 6. I have 2 domains - domain1 and domain2. This software allows access to two of its applications via these URLS:

http://myservername.domain1:8080/BO/APP1 and http://myservername.domain1:8080/BO/APP2.

Instead of these urls, I would like the end users to access these apps via something like http://bobj.domain2.com:8080/BO/APP1 and http://bobj.domain2.com:8080/BO/APP2.

I cannot figure out how to accomplish that. I have looked into the option of http redirect (not good because the destination address shows up in the address bar), domain forwarding (not sure if it would work with multiple applications and forwarding from one domain to another) and also using apache tomcat with mod_jk by using virtual hosts (not sure if it is possible when forwarding from one domain to a sub domain in another domain) ??

Experts, please advise as to what would be my best option and how to accomplish.

thanks a bunch
