There is really good documentation on how to configure Varnish for Magento on the Magento official website.

What you need to do is:

  • Configure Varnish to listen on port 80
  • Then configure your web server to listen on port 8080 for example
  • After that in your /etc/varnish/default.vcl file specifies your web server container name and port:
backend default {
    .port = "8080";
