Advice on using the correct format to access particular page on website

Internally, we can successfully connect to a particular page using the following format in a web browser:

http://internal ip address/gb-en/admin.html

For connections outside of the local network, we have successfully setup a dynamic DNS service (as we have a dynamic external ip address) and port forwarding on the firewall.

If we enter http://dynamic dns name:85 we successfully access the website home page. We need to access the admin page. There is no link from the home page to access the admin page. Please confirm what the correct format should be. Is it:

http://dynamic dns name:85/gb-en/admin.html


http://dynamic dns name/gb-en/admin.html:85

or should it be in a different format?

Your responses should assume that the dynamic naming service and port forwarding are setup correctly as we can access the home page succesfully. I’m interested in the correct format of the web address to use in a browser whilst outside of the local network.

Hope this makes sense.

I look forward to hearing from you

Ports always come right after the domain name like this:

http://dynamic dns name:85/

Then you add the page name after that.  It will be in exactly the same format as the internal.

http://dynamic dns name:85/gb-en/admin.html
