It seems that Cox has blocked port 80 after the Code Red worm thing. I can setup my server to use another port, no problem. Are there any DNS services (preferrably free) that will redirect web traffic to a port other than port 80? Register.com can't.
Hey sobesoft, welcome to WmW! We're not ignoring you, honest!! :)
Your question is a tough one, I can't even decide what search terms I'd use... Unfortunately all I can offer is a welcome, but that's not totally useless, it'll bring your question to the top of the "recent posts" list, and hopefully someone with some useful info will offer it.
Added, I also posted a request for help in the Mod's forum. Maybe one of our resident experts will have an idea or two. Best I can do... ;)
Not really sure I understand what you are asking, if you specify your URL as yourdomain.com:http-port with http-port being the port you have decided to use fir http requests then it will work. Are you looking for a DNS redirect so that people can continue to enter yourdomain.com and it will redirect to yourdomain.com:http-port ?
If that is what you mean, then the only way I could see to do it is to host yourdomain.com somewhere where port 80 is used and redirect to yourdomain.com:http-port
