I am building a reverse traffic server.
I have an external static ip address for a server that hosts multiple VM's
what I am wanting to do is call that ip address (or domain name) and add a port to it and that port will point to a VM on that server
http://server_ip:8080/ = http://VM.1.ip.address/ http://server_ip:8081/ = http://VM.2.ip.address/ http://server_ip:8082/ = http://VM.3.ip.address/ http://server_ip:8083/ = http://VM.4.ip.address/
is it a safe bet to use ports in as a range like that? I don't know a lot about ports but I do know port 8080 is used for web servers. My understanding is that free ports are fair game.
