Port Redirect

Im running the portal on 81 as my server already has 80 is use

Is it possible to rediret the port though so instead of having to go to http://myoctopusserver:81 that i could just go to http://myoctopusserver and the built in webserver will redirect it to 81?

All internal, there is no public traffic to this url, so cant use any edge firewall rules etc.


Hi @andrew2!

I’m afraid that you would need to use something like a reverse proxy to do something like this, you can set this up in IIS on the server, or use something like NGINX.

Here’s a great article on how to setup IIS reverse proxying:
Setup IIS with URL Rewrite as a reverse proxy for real world apps. | Microsoft Docs

And one on using NGINX as a reverse proxy:

I hope this helps!
