A Records to Revers Proxy

Recommended Posts

Hey, im trying to set my A record to a domain to connect via a VPN server (to hide my physical IP and geographic location)

So it should work domain.com -> points to VPN server -> forwards to my server -> Reverse proxy to local services.

Is this possible? I feel an A record is stuck without allowing a non port 80 position..

Any ideas?

So in essence, you want to host a website on a server connected to AirVPN. You should use DDNS instead. AirDNS has something like this: When you forward a port, enter a name into the DDNS field. Wait a few minutes, then you can connect using name.airdns.org:port, port being the remote port you forwarded. The advantage is that you can connect to any server you like and the name will always point to the current exit IP of your connections.
There is no way of forwarding port 80 or 443 directly. Unfortunately you must forward another port and point it to local 80 or 443.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Doesnt seem to work to this as my domains DNS renaming process complains at the :port saying FQDN invalid..

edit: My actual server for each doesn't ever change anyway, one cert per device for each connection.

Not quite sure what you want with a port there. If you want to use your own domain, there is no other way than pointing a CNAME record to a DDNS-updated FQDN, like the above name.airdns.org.
