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

Right on Air. At the free dns servers, "redirected port" is one of the top questions.
See: "Can I have HTTP or other requests go to a different port automatically?"
Port request is a function of the browser/os, not of dns. It is up to the os/browser combo to decide what is HTTP. After it connects, you can do stuff with it, but not until.

Thanks guys. This is exactly my problem. My site can be reached at www.site.com:port. I'll go check out the other discussion.

I think I got the dns2go running. There is a configuration tab on their client that allows redirecting to a different port. I seems slow, but at least I'm up and running!
