Correct. I meant to mention that in my earlier post. Your customer
should be able to browse to chuck.com:8080/this/that and it will show
up on the device at port 80 (assuming you set up your router).
If that causes angst for you or your customer, I can think of only 2
other options for you (although I'm sure there are more than 2
1) Change your personal web site to port 8080 and route port 80 to
your customer's device.
2) Obtain another static IP address from your ISP. I'm not sure
if/how well/ your ISP/router will be able to deal with this.
Hmmm.... I just came up with a 3rd possibility, which is outside my
realm of expertise. Perhaps you could just obtain a new domainname
for your customer's device and configure apache to
redirect/pipe/tunnel/proxy to the device. I don't know anything about
apache configuration, so I'm way out of my league here.
