Shorter URL in the browser

Hello guys,

I was wondering if there is a way where I can configure the alfresco tomcat to listen for an IP/FQDN and redirect to the full URL of the alfresco. Also I want to avoid any additional SW installed on the system, for example some apache installed in front and redirects to the alfresco tomcat.

For example:
I put in my browser: myalfresco.domain.net
The Alfresco tomcat redirects me to: https://myalfresco.domain.net:8443/share/page



I'm able to configure the with a webapp ROOT by doing the following:
1. I create a new folder "ROOT" under: /opt/alfresco-5.0.c/tomcat/webapps/
2. I create a index.html file with the following code in it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=https://myalfresco.domain.net:8443/share/page/">
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

3. Now when I put in the browser: myalfresco.domain.net:8080 the alfresco tomcat redirects me to https://myalfresco.domain.net:8443/share/page/, but I want to avaoid putting in the browser any port numbers, just an FQDN (as I explained above).

Any ideas? :)

Regards!
