Http Local Host, Https over DNS

Postby jmair » 07. September 2010 21:52

I've run into something I haven't seen and could use a tip if anyone has any ideas.
I've downloaded 1.7.3 and created my test site. After moving it to the Windows 2008 64bit server it's been working fine also, untill I try to connect to it via the domain.

my NAT works fine (able to remote to my webserver with Ip and domain name.)
I can connect to the website on my intranet using its local ip.
I can't connect using the domain name.
I can connect to the site with https however using the https://www.domain.com

Windows Firewall disconnected.

I've checked the httpd to make sure the directory goes to my site.

It acts like there is a Deny somewhere.. Am I missing that, if so, where is it located in Wamp?


Thanks guys.

Three things

1. What is the exact error you are getting?

pasting it into your reply is a good tactic

2. What errors are being recorded in the Apache error.log?

3. Not a question, a 'quick fix' for the moment perhaps -
an entry pointing your domain to the local IP in the hosts file(s). :idea:

(have you tried pinging or tracerouting the http address?)

Good Luck

If you're trying to access it using the public ip/domain from inside your nat, usually it won't work.

Sam -
that would only be true with a router that doesn't support NAT loopback AND you were using the IP - not the FQDN.

Well, I dunno. Sam could be onto something (however I'm not sure why the https is a workaround for it.) When at home, I'm able to access the site using the www.domain.com, but can't on location. This includes the external ip of the site.. I didn't have this problem when I was on a 2003 network using WAMP, however I did just upgrade my servers to 2008 r2 from 2003, so there could be a dns setting on my server somewhere I didn't set yet.

The page that's displayed is the Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage Image

Thanks for the help guys.

If you supply your own DNS on the local loop - that could easily be the problem.

When you are where the server is; traceroute it, that's what the tool is for. or Ping it if that blows wind for ya.

BTW - here's a good explantion of NAT loopback. I guess looking to see if your router has a setting for NAT loopback seems like a pretty good idea ATM.

If you don't have answer soon, try using Wireshark (its free)

Good Luck.
