A small web server serving “301 Moved Permanently” or “302 Moved Temporarily” to all requests.
Update 2003-07-17: Relase 0.3 of webredirect is out on the ftp server. The main news in this release are:
Updated the C++ language usage, so this version works with gcc 3.x (and should work with other standard-compliant C++ compilers).
Added two command line options, to redirect temporarily instead of permanently and to redirect all requests to just the base target, without the path/file part of the requested URI appended. Submitted by Michael A Dickerson firstname.lastname@example.org.

In case foo.org is a virtual host (maybe even on the same physical
host as bar.org), you can tell
webredirect to listen only at the
foo.org interface (it must be a “real” virtual host, i.e. foo.org must
be a distinct IP address).
See the included man page for more details.
The C++ source for
webredirect is available from
It is also available as a FreeBSD port (and binary package).
