Hi,  I am not sure if a service like this exists or that I am wording this correctly but I am looking for an online service that will act like a router or firewall. I want something like a VPS/VPN service that will allow me to forward my domain name to their servers IP. Which I can then port forward specific TCP/UDP ports to other WAN IP addresses. Everyone that connects to the domain on would see the first firewall service/company as the destination IP address while the traffic can be forwarded to other locations. 

 

Preferably I would like to be able to request new ip address from this service on demand and/or easily change the destination of the port forwarded location. Does anyone know of a service like this or what its called to help me good the right thing?

 

Thank you!

Hello

 

Maybe something like http://portmap.io or https://pagekite.net could be a starting point for you?

As for changing ip adresses. That could become an issue if you are using your own domain name. Then you would have to change the dns to reflect the new ip address and the propagation time for that across the internet might vary.
So if you need good uptime you are in a bit of a limbo there.

Hth!

Thank you, this is exactly what i'm looking for! 

I do not have to change IP address often and if I ever do then a little downtime would be ok. The important thing would to be able to change the IP address of where its being port forwarded too. 

 

What did you search to find these?

My first google search was "run your own nat server in the cloud"

Then, a bit down on the first page, I found ngrok.com
It wasnt 100% what I thought you would need, so then I then used alternativeto.net to find similar things to ngrok

Hth!

Thanks, For anyone else that might look at this in the future, I found searching for "localhost tunneling solution" to return a lot of results and things along the lines of creating a VPN connection to a cloud service that tunnels through the ISP that allows you to port forward back through it.  Also could work with SSH Tunneling and possibly some networking programs like free net?
