View Full Version : Server not accessible outside of home network
22nd May 2004, 06:39 PM
Fedora 1 doesnt connect outside of them network. im behind a router and connected to that router is the fedora box and 3 xp home machines. when you try to connect to the fedora box from on of those 3 xp machines it works fine, from behind the network. but when u put a proxy server up and type in the address nothing happens it just comes back with an error message. i do have a the right DNS servers configured and i double checked the ip address i used at dyndns.com. i also tried to connect to the server from my friends house with no luck.

Your router has to be set up with port-forwarding to route the appropriate packets to your Fedora box. A proxy doesn't have anything to do with this.

i went over my friends house and used his computer to connect to the fedora box. it went fine connecting to webmin but when i tried to get to the web pages nothing came up and i got the regular page cannot be found windows error message. i can also connect to the server using the homelinux.com address for putty and winscp.

You need to put your machine under DMZ zone.
Go to DMZ setting enable it and put the IP of that machine (Internal IP such as 192.168.0.x) to allow it to be accessible from outside

i just did that. it didnt seem to change anything. when i go into the apache module in webmin and press start apache i get this error message "Failed to start apache :
Starting httpd: httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName

i tried looking in httpd.conf and playing around with a few things. i have posted a copy of httpd.conf attached to this message in hopes that someone would be able to tell me what i need to change to get apache to work.
