MrDave2176 Posted July 8, 2006 Share Posted July 8, 2006 I've just got my Verizon FIOS hooked up and I'm pleased with the speed. However, I am less pleased that incoming Port 80 is blocked. I have access to other servers and I am considering setting up some sort of catch-and-redirect page that will redirect the domain name (http://wildandbad.com) to the webserver http://wildandbad.com:8080. This presents a problem. Ideally I'd like to set it up as a proxy or URL rewrite. I tried no-ip.com (http://wildandbad.no-ip.info) and got some success but theirs is name-based not ip-based redirection so I can't make a CNAME record to redirect it. I have access to another server (http://latenightgames.com) and could try to make a wildandbad.com redirect through apache except that I've lost my su access and would have to go therough their sysadmin and he's a bastard (I'll be leaving them soon anyways). I have another server on http://cssm.org through Dreamhost but I've not looked into doing it there. In short, what I think I'll need will be an A record to point to a non-blocked domain (wildandbad.com) which will pass the REQUEST to a php script which will repackage and POST to www.wildandbad.com:8080 which is my home machine. Any thoughts on this? Anyone know of a less complicated way to make wildandbad.com go straight to my home machine without specifying a port?
