Looking to set up remote ssh access to a Linux box running Wordpress. That part should be straight forward enough -- just reserve an IP address for the MAC address to that NIC.

Once that's accomplished, however, how would I go about actually using Wordpress? Presumably I can configure Wordpress to accept connections and serve admin pages through another port. But how?

This would be behind NAT where the ISP blocks port 80. (Not for production, just to play with.)

Not a problem with directly entering an IP address and port, doesn't have to be proxy server or redirect. Or, perhaps, start Wordpress bound to a specified port?

    WP is a script that runs within a web server. WP does not bind to a port, however Apache does. httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/bind.html There are likely settings within WP to set. For example, within wp-config.php, set WPSITEURL and WPHOME to include whatever port you decide to use. – closetnoc Jun 15 '18 at 20:30

    If you want to work around the ISP block ngrok may help – jrtapsell Jun 15 '18 at 20:38
