GoTo is a simple service (for Solaris) written in python using the bottle module.
It provides a simple redirection service. (Short) URI's are mapped to URL's. This allows for sharing and consolidating of a lot of internal tools and webapps in one place.
A zone or solaris host will run the GoTo Service (network/http/goto). It will then serv and index of all configured links from
/etc/goto.map or it will serv a redirection page when visiting one of the links.
In this little section my zone has is called lynx.lab.acheron.be with an IP of 10.123.0.5.
Typing http://lynx.lab.acheron.be/mail is still a bit long and so is http://lynx.lab/mail so I also configured a DNS cname for this host goto.
Pretty simple isn't it. Ofcourse you can redirect anything to anything, you could even redirect goto/vnc-cepheus to vnc://cepheus, ofcource your browser/os would need to have a protocol handler configured for vnc.
