Hi I am new to cloudflare and could use some help to accomplish forwarding my site. Since I am new here they won’t let me post what it thinks fare URL so I am going to do my best to describe this without doing so. Here is what I am trying to do.
When someone visits www mysite com they get forwarded to www mysite com :12345.
I have an A record for www that points to where the ip address of my host. I then have a forwarding rule that says, “If URL matches” www mysite com/ then “Forwarding URL” www mysite com :12345. When I do it this way the site simply times out.
I have also tried forwarding to hostipaddress :12345. This works but the browser then shows you are vising hostipaddress :12345 which I don’t want.
What I do want is for vising www mysite com to forward to www mysite com :12345 without exposing where my site is hosted. If this could be accomplished without exposing the port number that would be great but not a must.
