Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

There's the situation :

Intranet hosted here with intranet_name.domain.com with a private network address 172.x.x.x.

I have to give access to this intranet to an another site. They add a DNS entry corresponding to remote_intranet.other_site_domain.com 10.x.x.x.

In my firewall I do a NAT of 10.x.x.xto 172.x.x.x.

Because of the NATing I presume that my configuration will continue to listen to the 172.x.x.x address.

Does I have to put a new ServerName remote_intranet.other_site_domain.com on my intranet VirtualHost ?

I read about Proxy too.

I don't know Apache very much. Any help will be appreciated.

Just add a line to your virtualhost:

ServerAlias remote_intranet.other_site_domain.com 

and yes, leave the ip and port alone.
