Default [OT]: free ddns service and port rediction 80<-->xyz

Hello,

Does anybody know of a few dynamic DNS service which redirects traffic
on port 80 to a different port on my machine (which has a dynamic IP)?

I need this because a friend of mine's univ allows outgoing access to
only port 80. I am thinking that if a dynamic dns service redirects
traffic on port 80 to port xyz on my machine, I can make ssh listen on
port xyz and my friend can then have ssh access to that machine. BTW, I
want this redirection via a different hostname because I am already
running a web server on my machine (which is Debian Testing btw).

Thanks,
->HS

Is Dyndns's WebHop what you need?

This when port 80 is blocked. In case of OP only port 80 is open on
the gateway machine.
AFAIK an outside service alone will not be able to do what he wants
without some NAT'ing on the gateway.

I tried the redirection on no-ip.org, which is I think the thing that
you provided the link for. But this service just forwards the URLs to a
non-80 port. I think it also puts the "http://" prefix someplace in the
domain name during the redirection. In any case, it does not work with
ssh connections, the attempt times out.

The problem is not that port 80 of a destination is blocked. The problem
is that the source gateway allows packets to *only* port 80 to the WAN.

BTW, is there a tool which lets me run a command shell within a browser
window? That would work on port 80.

Maybe I'm missing something, but as I understand it, the service can
redirect any host/port combination to any other. An example given is:

http://myhost.dyndns.org/ redirects to http://myserver.dyndns.org:8080/

Isn't that what the OP wants?

Perhaps I'm indeed misunderstanding the issue.

I see the mistake I was making; thanks for pointing it out. The
browser will need access to the redirected host/port, which in the OP's
case is not possible.

I do think Anyterm may do what the OP needs.

Hey,
Easy fix that works for me.
If your web server isn't already using it then just get ssh to listen
on port 443 which the firewall will more than likely let through for
https.

cheers,
Owen.

I have it running, so can't use 443. But I already had this mind. I have
asked the related admin what other ports are open. I am not running any
other services, so hopefully I can make ssh listen on one of those ports.

thanks,

try 20/21 for ftp (although 20 may be opened only in response to 21), or 53 for
domain name server

also have a look at freedns.afraid.org, I seem to recall that they do what you
want, but I'm not sure if its a redirection from them or a message to your
computer to redirect somewhere else
