About hostname configuration on BIND.
Hello LQ community.
I have read a lot of documentation but it is still hard to find a proper answer to my doubts.
About the hostnames in a domain, how is it associate to a determinated port?
Another example, If I wrote my own software listening, let's say on the port 40000 and I want to have a domain like "mystuff.sparc86.net" how would I let it be redirected to the port 40000 ?
I hope I am being clear on my question.
Thanks in advance!
It's simple. You don't. The DNS system does not handle ports (except maybe SRV records which are not supported with web browsing). If you need to redirect a browser to an other port, you need to run a webserver on port 80 and configure it for permanent redirection. The same goes for almost any protocol.
