IBM WAS 8 gives option to create virtual hosts. At the time of WAR deployment, I am able to map the application to a particular virtual host. For each virtual host, I am able to assign a port number (There is no protocol defined for the virtual host port - so, will it apply for HTTP?).
However, the application is not accessible using that port number. Neither is the application accessible on the normal HTTP port of the server.
What is the gap here? Server doesn't listen on ports defined for virtual hosts other than default_host? Is a separate Http server required to listen on that port and forward the request to WAS?
