Can't gain access to remote web access

Recommended Posts

You can't use that address from inside your LAN. You have to use the server's LAN IP, probably a 192 address, such as https://192.168.0.101.

 

Try getting your g/f to try https://82.26.94.188. it should work for her.

 

Hi we have success she was able to gane access :) she said that when she put the ip in it showed that this page was un know she clicked ok and the page showed up and loged in so how do i get my domain working?

The 82.x address works.

 

DNS names are updated globally and should not be in this much of a lag. Just tried the DNS, and it is still not resolving.ut rather

 

This issue is not yours, but rather your ISP's

This depends on the router. I can go out and come back in to mine.

The unknown page was warning her the page has an unverifiable certificate. It's not a problem, except that you will have to warn anyone who wants to come to your site to ignore/acknowledge the warning.

 

As jmwills said, the issue is not really yours, it's an internet DNS resolving issue. It can take up to 72 hours for a domain IP change to completely propagate, but that is rare; it usually happens in a matter of a few hours.

UPnP has nothing to do with the DNS issue. Turn it off since it is a big security risk.

I'm wondering if it's an issue at MS. MS is the authoritative source for homeserver.com, is it not? If it is, what happens if it doesn't get updated about an IP change? Perhaps MAD4TECH needs to force his server to update MS. I'm not sure how to make it do that - perhaps just turn off Remote Access and then turn it back on?

I'm aware, but I've found that the number of routers that allow loopback is pretty small.

He could put and additional DNS setting in the adapter for Google which is 8.8.8.8

 

It's not Microsoft or mine would not resolve (which it does). https://willsit.homeserver.com

I would not turn off UPnP until the URL resolving issues are fixed - let's tackle 1 thing at a time.

 

What I suggest now is to turn off Remote Web Access, wait 5 minutes, then turn it back and go through the process. Hopefully, this will force Microsoft to see the new IP.

Not sure what you're thinking. My thinking is that the new IP will never get propagated until the MS mothership is updated and sends out an IP change notification. And MS won't get updated until the server sends out an update to MS.

True, but the update is beyond his control unless he puts in additional DNS resources.

 

I'd still turn off UPnP and configure it manually. His router, as some do, might have issues with it.
