    Using different port for redirection

    Can someone please help. How do I setup redirection to a URL that is not on port 80? I've tried the following:

    RedirectToURL=http://xx.xxx.xxx.x:64000/ and
    RedirectToURL=http://xx.xxx.xxx.x/:64000

    Am I entering this incorrectly? The problem is that port 80 does not work with my new Netgear router. The latest firmware was supposed to fix the problem, but it didn't.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    The first would be the correct way. I take it you are using a custom redirect...if you're using a public redirect, you're hosed.

        That would require a web server (such as Apache) on the redirect url to work on your local network. If you use a public redirect the port is irrelevant because the files are not uploaded to your clients locally. If your port 80 was not accessible to download through your router your could connect to the Internet.

        BTW some ISP's block port 80 to their clients for upload as to stop them from having web sits.

        RedirectToURL=http://xx.xxx.xxx.x:64000/ is the proper syntax
