your DNS isn't mapped to any port; it's totally independant

Yes, but he wants them to map port 80 to another port as verzion (ISP I presume) blocks port 80 connections (HTTP)_____

I'll try to explain further, your DNS HOST name is just for resolving the IP address. There isn't any port mapping to do at this level.
If you run a webserver on a non-standard port (like 8080) then that information must be put into the browser. Like http://www.yourserver.com:8080
The redirect information you saw on the DYNDNS support website would only work if the clients can access the redirecting HTML page in the first place.

Yes, but DNS isn't the prolem here is it? We've both said that?
Maybe if you set up a redirection service like CJB to redirect to yourplace.ath.cx:84 (or whatever port you're using the server on.)
DNS just provides the IP lookup, which you're doing through dyndns. try using a free hosting site simply to redirect you to the correct page and port. Just put a Please wait notice on it or something._____
