port forwarding without typing any port after the address
I read someone already posted the same question, but nowhere to find.
example: www.x.x.x.y:8080 was properly configured in my VIP settings. Now, how do i enforce when my users want to access our web server it will divert to our web server page without typing 8080 after the address?
What possible changes on my dns server which is hosting the said web site? appreciate your feedback. thank you
As Ede said this is not a firewall function, but a function of your web server. You would have to build a redirect into your server's configuration to send port 80 traffic to port 8080. If you use Apache it would be something similar to:
Make sure your web server is configured to listen on the redirected port or it will simply hang there. If you click on the link in my signature, you will see that I am doing the same exact thing to port 5190.
