Using VPN and webbserver together. Port problem


Hi

I'm (probably) going to set up a VPN from my server to an "anonymity-provider".

The thing is that this provider block ports below 1024.
I run Apache and an SSH-server on this server and of course I still want to be able to access these from the outside.

SSH is no problem, I'll just change the default port and connect to that port with Putty.

But it's my webpage thats a problem. I dont want to type the portnumber everytime I want to reach it. For example
http://mypage.com:8080
It would be to much of a bother.

Can anyone see any way around this problem?
It would be much appreciated. I've been thinking for hours without results.

I'm running CentOS 5.6 if thats any help. And note that I dont have the VPN yet. I'm just planning it

-----------------------------------------

I've seen this thread:

But I don't really get it

at http level you have to specify a port, no way around that. There are probably free redirction services to avoid you *typing* the port number in the first instance, but they would need to be on a different domain etc, so you might as well just use bit.ly or something for the benefits it'll provide in real terms.
