Hello,
I am using apache-tomcat-6 as a web server.
I have a index.jsp, I want to create a DNS alias so when user enter like

http://abc.com
http://abc
http://otheralias
--> it all will direct to http://abc.com

How do I set this up? What do I do in the index.jsp or in the server.xml?
Thank in advance

You can set up host name aliases in your $CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml file.

thank you for your link.
I read the links and it is showing to add the new entry into the server.xml in conf/ directory, and also I do have to register the alias into the server registry in order to make it works right?

also , if i want to test if the alias name work on my localmachine, how do I do that. I changed my server.xml to as the following

Usually if i access my local then i type
https://localhost:7070/works --> then I get into the first page index.jsp
so in the same token: I want to type www.mymachine.com ---> it redirect me to http://localhost:7070/works[/B]

Please giving more help or assist.
Thanks
