There are two parts to this: -

- the first is that you need to be on port 80, so sooner or later you
will need to use a second IP (so that you can coexist with IIS) or some
form of proxy, as per previous posts.

- the second is that you need to use the VHM (virtual host monster) to
rewrite requests. There is a howto on plon.org about doing this without
proxying at: -


...which tells you about the VHM and how to work with Plone's
AccessRule. Personally, the first thing I do when I set Plone up is kill
that AccessRule - so I can't vouch for that part of the howto. There is
a bit more about the AccessRule here: -



FWIW, once the AccessRule is out of the picture, the standard Zope docs
for the VHM are the place to go: -
