Resolving port 8080 in DNS

Hi

I have my DNS servers (BIND 8) running on two Solaris 8 boxes. I need to be able to resolve an address blah.xxx.net to an IP address followed by :8080 - (for Tomcat). I tried doing this in my zone file but it failed. Can someone give me a pointer on where this configuration should be done?

Cheers
K

You can't. The port part of an URL (protocol://[user[:pass]@]host[:port]/path) is not provided by DNS. If you don't want that the user has to type a port part, there's only one way; your HTTP server must listen on port 80.
