DeleGate reference manual version 9.9 / nvserv=host MountOption
[CTX] [ALL] nvserv=host MountOption
nvserv | nvserv=host -- forwarding to a name based virtual server
specify MOUNTing the target server as a name based virtual hosting server. The virtual host name to be sent to the server can be specified as "nvserv=host" or it is the host name part in the rURL by default. With this option, the target server is MOUNTed only as a virtual server of the host name while other servers, of alias names of the host or IP-addresses of the host, are not MOUNTed. This means that the MOUNT rule will be applied for rewriting of URL in a HTTP response message only if the hostname of a URL matches textually with the virtual host name of the target server. The virtual hostname from the client can be passed through to the server with "nvserv=-thru".
avserv | avserv=host -- forwarding to an IP-address based virtual server
notate that the target server is not a name based virtual hosting server. With this option, all of servers of alias names or IP-addresses of the target server are MOUNTed by this MOUNT rule. It has been the default behavior of MOUNT but it can be changed with the option HTTPCONF="nvserv:auto" to automatically detect virtual servers in a set of MOUNT parameters. This "avserv" option could become necessary to notate a non-virtual server which is automatically guessed as a virtual server.
rserv=host[:port] -- real target server
specify the real host name or IP-address and port number of the target server toward which the HTTP connection is established. This option is used to do MOUNT a virtual hosting server of which virtual host name is specified in the rURL rather than in the "nvserv=host" option. For example, the following two MOUNT rules are equivalent to each other.
 MOUNT="/v/* http://www.domain/* rserv="
 MOUNT="/v/** nvserv=www.domain"
Specifying the "rserv" option implies that the target server is a virtual server as if notated with the "nvserv" option.
genvhost=host (obsoleted by nvserv and rserv options)
Specify the hostname which will be received by the target server as its virtual hostname. It is set in the "Host: host" field in the request message to be forwarded to the server. When the request is to be forwarded via a HTTP proxy, it is set in the request URL as http://host/... The default Host field sent to the server is derived from the rURL part of the MOUNT parameter which specifies the target server. For example for MOUNT="/* http://hosti:8080/*", "Host: hosti:8080" will be forwarded to the server (which is running at the port hosti:8080). To through pass the Host field in the request from a client to the server, specify as "genvhost=-thru".
