Help, create subdomain to my home ip

Hi :slight_smile:

I want to create a subdomain like: portioner . mobihen . com
and when I will type this, it will redirect me to my home ip with a specific port.

from no-ip services if I write my domain name and add “:PORT” I see my desired service.

The point of it all is that instead of remembering what port does each service at my home network has, I just write the desired service as a subdomain and it will redirect me to there.
Example: jellyfin . mobihen . com will redirect me to 172.16.2.0:1234

I’m on a free plan at the moment

Thanks :slight_smile:

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community.

The answers to your questions are not going to match your expectations.

  1. Mapping ports is not a function of DNS.
  2. The Cloudflare proxy only supports specific ports.
  3. Using the Cloudflare proxy with a media sever is likely to violate section 2.8 of the terms.

Just to clarify,
\if I have on my local network: 192.168.1.2:9000 let’s say it’s a BitTorrent server,
and I want to access from outside with a dynamic IP like, mobile,com:9000 but instead: torrent,mobihen,com it will be AS IF I wrote: mobile,com:9000

it’s not possible?

Thanks

No. It doesn’t work that way.

can you please share how can I achieve this? in any way (not neccessarily
Cloudflare)

Thanks :slight_smile:

Create a DNS entry for mobile.com which points to your external IP address (http://icanhazip.com/). Modify your firewall/router to accept connections from the interwebs on port 9000 and to forward them to 192.168.1.2. Make the record :grey: because 9000 is not a port that can be proxied on Cloudflare typically.

Thank you very much for your help!!!

You’re likely looking to add an A record.
