Subject Re: [users@httpd] Running Multiple Windows Services on port 8080
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2008 10:40:48 GMT
As far as I know, dyndns gives you an actual DNS lookup, so when
someone types your subdomain into their browser, it does a DNS lookup,
and gets the IP address you gave to dyndns. That's why port numbers
work, it's not that dyndns is listening on every port and forwarding
based on the requested subdomain. That being the case, I don't think
there's any way to do what you want here: DNS maps names to ip
addresses, it doesn't know anything about ports.

I'm not sure how webhop works: you can't tell it to redirect
my.domain.com to my.domain.com:8080? Are you only able to give an IP
address and port for the destination?

If you have legitimate business needs for this site, your best bet is
probably to just get a business account with your ISP that will
unblock port 80. You'd probably get a static IP with the account, too,
so you wouldn't need dyndns, you can just buy a 5$ a year domain name
of your own. Plus, additional bandwidth.
