I have an application that is on port 86 so I run it with this url:


I need to be able to enter [my.address...] and be
redirected to port 86 and all links within the site should have port 86 appended to them.

So far I have the following in VirtualHosts, but it works with different effects in Internet Explorer and firefox and the links within the site are always without the port:

ProxyPreserveHost Off
ProxyPass /esmac [my.address:86...]
ProxyPassReverse /esmac [my.address:86...]
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/esmac/(.*)$ [my.address:86...] [P]

This seems like a run-of-the-mill canonical hostname issue. The hostname port may be unusual, but the code should still be largely the same.

See [httpd.apache.org...] for examples.
