DNS Port Forwarding Advice

Hello Experts,

We have a windows 2000 domain and on this domain we have an application server that uses web access on port 80 and 8080.  Instead of using the actual server name we want to use.  So for example our server is called application1 and we want to use two domain names to access the different services.

so if the user goes to the url they should be redirected to http://application1

This initial step I have done on the DNS server and all is working.  

However we also need another redirect, so if the user goes to they should be redirected to http://application1:8080

Its the port forwarding I am having the issue with,ie coming in on port 80 and being redirected to port 8080.

Can anyone explain how I can set this up in the DNS server??

I have created the zone and in there have the www host so it is resolving, but its going to the standard port 80 page and not the 8080.

Marks will be awarded for a full workable answer.

Many Thanks
