[ubuntu] password protecting a port

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to set up a password protected security camera on my home computer that has its own domain name. To access the camera you go to port 8000 (example localhost:8000). I have created a password protected page that redirects to that port but would like to make it so you can't access the port directly, but have to go through the login page. I don't even know if it is possible to do this but I would like to give it a try if it is. Preferably I would like the only way to get to that specific port to be logging into the page first.
