Topic: Direct Subdomains to port numbers?

O.k...so I have a static IP for my development, and that's cool - I assigned a subdomain to it so that I can tell clients to go to "inside.techism.com" to see their latest site progress.

The trouble is that the first thing you see at that location is my router's login information.  In order to get to an actual site, I have to specify a specific port which I have the router forwarding to the proper server.

Right now, I have to add in a port number for each site such as:  inside.techism.com:3000

I would LIKE to find some way to make, rails.techism.com, or clientname.techism.com, forward to the right port.   Is there a way to do this?

Re: Direct Subdomains to port numbers?

If you use nginx or apache to develop with on your machine then you shouldn't need a seperate port number for each host. Then you should be able to just forward port 80 from your router to your machine and each host should be accessible. You may need to add entires into /etc/hosts.

Apache and rails?
