This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

do you need a long term thing, or a one time fix? – rogerdpack Jul 18 '12 at 18:03

What exactly are you trying to redirect? Just HTTP? Then you could just add port 80 to the HTTP server which currently listens on port 8080? – MichelZ Jul 23 '12 at 7:30

install an ssh server, then use a local ssh client in a window, like:

 ssh username@localhost -R80:localhost:8080

ssh server:

I'm not sure if this will work for port 80, but you could try it :)
