how to set up a dns for server on port other than 80?

I have 2 web camera/servers on my LAN and have a dns mapped to my WAN IP (say http://xx.xx.xx.xx, or the corresponding text dns) which gets to the first camera through default port 80. I set the other camera up on another port and opened the corresponding port on the router and I can access it from outside the LAN by typing in my WAN IP and appending the port number like so: http://xx.xx.xx.xx:port#

But when I tried to establish dns through it will not accept the :port#. It says that this is not a valid syntax.

I'd like to be able to set up a dns for this other camera. Can anyone explain how to do this?

  1. I figured out how to do this. Just append the :port# to the existing ddns name. D'ohhh!!
