easy alias on local network?


Hi.
I have a local network with a server and some clients. All linux.

On the server I have different services, Plex, Squeezebox, cups.
They all have a specific port they listen on, eg. squeezebox, which i can reach from any client with the adress 192.168.1.2:9000 or mintbox:9000.

Is it possible for me to make a setup that allows me to write only e.g. squeezebox, that is, without the portnumber, and reach the service in a simpler way?

thanks in advance
Anders

Maybe just apache virtualhosts for each name with an appropriate redirect line in the vhost config to redirect to the urlort you want.

edit: provided you are using a web browser to access these services.

ok

Yes I use a browser for these services.
Thank you for your answer. I will try that.
Somehow i expected that i could use some system-service, instead of having to install and configure an Apache-server.

regards
