  • Adding Ports To A DNS Record

    Hi everyone,

    I am wondering if it is possible to add to ports to a DNS record in Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. I was wondering if this is possible because I would like for my users to able to access our ftp server(internally) by name instead of typing 192.168.1.*:0000. Or is this possible to achieve in IIS somehow?

    Thanks,

    Re: Adding Ports To A DNS Record

    Its not possible to use port information within a DNS record. Generally, port redirection is handled by the application. For instance if you were running a website on port 8080, for you to be able to access the website without specifying the port, you would need to set up a simple website listening on port 80 and then redirect the user to the website listening on 8080.

    If you plan on doing this for FTP because you are listing to another non-standard FTP port, you'll need to have the FTP application do some type of redirection.

      Thanks for the info, I managed to set up a simple website within IIS and have it redirect to the ftp site when the user typed in ftp.mycompany.com.au

      Thanks JM
