Sub Domain mapped to IP address Port Number

Our company is running two different webservers (Ironside and IIS) and I need to point a sub-domain to the IIS server.

Is it possible using a DNS server to point a sub-domain to an IP address with port number

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080  --> sub.domain.com

We currently have a sub-domain for our Ironside webserver that uses the same IP, only at port 80

I have the webservers working fine separatly, but we are currently using the IP:8080 to access the site on IIS... and need to setup a subdomain

Hi jlavetan,
No you cannot point a subdomain to a particular port.

However you can use 'virtual hosts' where the webserver returns a different website depending on the domain in the URL queried.

we have two different server platforms... Ironside and IIS....

Any ideas on how to get it to work in a multiple webserver environment?

It would depend what you could do with the webserver.
You could for example have everything pointed to IIS but if it detects you are going to the subdomain URL it issues a redirect back to the subdomain URL but with the port number specified.
Other webservers such as Apache even allow the webserver to pull the request off a completely different server and return the data to the client.

Therefore I think you need to look into what can be done using the various URL redirect rules in your two webservers.

We are pretty much stuck with the Ironside webserver, so the best bet would be to do redirects from there.  

Does anyone out there know how to do redirects on an Ironside Webserver?  It would have to based on port number.

You might be better off asking a question in the web hosting section.
