Hello,

I was hoping to use my DNS server to point certain URL's to the same pulic IP address, but to different ports.  
Example:
www.server1.com -- 24.29.103.10 port 5252
www1.server1.com -- 24.29.103.10 port 5253
www2.server1.com -- 24.29.103.10 port 5253

Has anyone every seen this done and if so, how did they configure the DNS entry.

Cheers,
Marc

Some commercial services (ala http://no-ip.com) offer Port 80 host name redirection so www.example1.com redirects to 111.222.33.44:1010 and www.example2.com redirects to 111.222.33.44:2020, etc...
but this is Port 80 only

No as has been said is your answer...


However you can do it with web forwarding, I know I have done something similar in the past with 123reg.co.uk.  You have multiple web forwarding options there but pretty well it either redirects to a new page and shows the port address in the url bar or you hide the redirect by showing a hidden frame with your site within it.

Only realistic way other than that is three external IP's or use host-headers within the webserver to identify which site to send the request to.

WatchGuard Case Study: NCR

With business operations for thousands of customers largely depending on the internal systems they support, NCR can’t afford to waste time or money on security products that are anything less than exceptional. That’s why they chose WatchGuard.
