Creating a DNS entry to route to an IP:port address.

By NateMc ·
I have gotten my internal DNS server set up thanks to some helpful posts from Tech Republic members and now I am on to properly registering some services that I am using.

I have 1 server running multiple programs accessed through an Internet Browser interface on different ports. I am wanting to be able to give independent names to each service.

ie. help.lifecareok.pri -->
and bes.lifecareok.pri -->

I have read that barring SRV entries, DNS is not aware of port values. Can SRV entries accomplish what I am trying to do and if so, how exactly would I set up the entry? My biggest confusion comes with the protocol and service entries. Suppose I select _tcp and _http for protocol and service, how would I type in an address in internet explorer so that I could access the associated port?

My appologies if I am unclear on my question and I really appreciate any help!
