Online port relay / redirect

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is some sort of script that allows to redirect a port?

Basically, my home ISP does not allow ports below 1024 to be forwarded by their router.
My work blocks almost every port.
I do have a VPS where I would like to run something that listens let's say on some specific subdomain on port 80, but basically "proxies" all traffic to another IP and another port.

I tried a php proxy script, but it doesn't really do the job.

the vps is a windows machine with php support.
there are also some other sites already running on that machine, listening to specific subdomains, so these must keep working.

Hey aarontomosky,

I started looking into the iis Application Request routing. It does seem promising, but I seem unable to set it up correctly without messing up all my other websites.

When I want to create an URL rewrite, I need to enable the mark on "Use URL Rewrite to inspect incoming requests" which means I need to supply a reverse proxy. But I have no idea what that is...
If I set the reverse proxy to my destination, every site hosted on the machine gets redirected there...

I tried adding a rewrite module like this:
rewrite ^subdomain.domain.com(.*) to someotherdomain.com:8081
but this seems to have no effect.

Would you be able to assist me in further setup of this?

sorry about the delay, It completely slipped my mind.
Here is my web.config that takes whatever comes to this site (it's bound to company.com:8081) and sends it out company.com:8080 which is another site on the same box

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="ReverseProxyInboundRule1" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="(.*)" />
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://company.com:8080/{R:1}" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Hey aarontomosky,

I changed the rewrite url to my remote url, but nothing seems to happen actually.
is this an address rewrite rule or an internal request routing?

Regards

Make a new site in IIS. Bind it to whatever you want as the face of the proxy. Lets call it proxy.company.com:8081
Put that web.config in that site with the URL changed to let's call it remote.company.com:8080

So if you can't hit 8080, you can go to proxy.company.com:8081 and get the other site, effectively bypassing the port block.
