Port Redirection on DNS

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Fernando Colon, Jan 6, 2004.

  1. Hi.

    I have a WIndows 2003 server acting as DNS for my domain. It the only and
    primary DNS that I use. I bought the domain name from Network Solutions, but
    the DNS is done by me. Now, ISP is blocking incoming port 80 traffic, so now
    I have to use port 8080 for my Outlook Web Access for example. Is there any
    way to implement port redirection at the DNS without having to use any of
    the DNS services out there like DNS4Me or PlanetDNS?

    In other words, how can I have the DNS send me to OWA on port 8080 without
    having to specify the port on the URL, whenever DNS receives a request for

    Thank you in advance!

  3. You cannot do port redirection with DNS. DNS resolves host names to IP
    addresses, it doesn't provide ports.

    I had the same problem (Verizon DSL). I dumped them and signed up with
    another company, Covad (www.covad.net). By law Verizon has to open up there
    lines to other DSL providers. I have a faster connection 1.5 megs down 384k
    up, 5 static IPs and "NO INTERFERENCE" for 75.00 a month.
