Hiz to all..

I'm a member of a wide private wireless network here in Greece
and i took the liberty of creating the first Mac SUS (Software
Update Server) here.

There are not many mac-users but it's a service everybody is
going to use, where wireless is available and internet is not.

It's nice update a mac-user system using max 54mbit line! (:()

Now for my problem... (i hope someone helps cause i'm stuck! :S)

The mac os x server machine is on my private network configured
to get dns from a dns server of my own that cascades other dns'
from the wide wireless network. So it can resolve internet, "our"
own private network, and "my" own network.

My system is upgraded at 10.5.7 server with all
packages/software/apps updated. I've started the SUS service and
fetched all packages from apple (took 5 days "omg").

I've followed the guide i found on the net
here http://tinyurl.com/macsus1
and here http://tinyurl.com/macsus2

The thing is i'm stuck at apache aliases cause the 1st link it's
an old Tiger guide, the 2nd link tries to update it but... the SUS
runs at 8080 and apache at 80. The aliases i tried heh, i've
tried'em all, when i switch to my local dns server the
swscan.apple.com resolves at my local sus machine but pop's
up a message about the leopard-merged file can't be found..

I've tried some Safari links in case i open the xml file to browse
the contents but somewhere there the alias breaks..

I'm in dire need to fix that cause i've managed to get all
mac-users hyped up for nothing.. :(


Thanx in advance!

p.s. i'm not so familiar with the mac os x server but i've managed
to understand it quite fast, it's not hard, it's the too small parts
i'm missing, stuff only time teaches!
