Hello all....



Is there anywhere an option to forward the default CUCM website to ccmuser?


We want that if the endUser enters the host name or IP address of the CUCM in the webbrowser to be redirected to ccmuser page..


e.g.


If the user enters:


https://cucm/



The default Web Page displays with the cisco warning and the link to ccmadmin.


We want that if the users enters


https://cucm/


the Enduser is redirectet to

https://cucm/ccmuser/showHome.do


THX in advanced...

Well DNS is one issue, certifcates another, and redirecting an URL is the one I tried to solve..



what I did in DNS


making an CNAME Record to for the server. -> User get there by an easyer name...


To Redirect the default Url I used another webserver which redirects the Url to to desired destionation...



THE DNS Record pointed to the Other Webserver ( lets call it url-redirector) and that webserver redirected the Required Url to the /ccmuser/ path..



I did it with lighttpd...

here is the config snippet from ligttpd ( Apache should be similar)



##### handling voice
$HTTP["host"] =~ "voi(p|ce)" {
        url.redirect = ("^/*" => "https://CUCM:8443/ccmuser/" )
        }
$HTTP["host"] =~ "voi(p|ce).example.com" {
        url.redirect = ("^/*" => "https://CUCM.example.com:8443/ccmuser/" )
        }



Works nicely...


user can now enter the url voip.example.com and are redirected to the ccmuser page...


It even works if the user enters:

voip.example.com/some/stupid/stuff

:-)


Because this is just an small config in the Webserver, I thought that there is in Option for Cisco Tomcat.......



Oh yes Ceritificats.... because auf redirects the end2End session is again user -> CUCM..  No proxy inbetween..
