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.
