Wat is SmartWifi precies?Ruim 2 miljoen klanten met een Connectbox (witte modem) hebben automatisch een gratis software-update ontvangen van Ziggo. De nieuwe software maakt het modem een SmartWifi mod...
I am trying to forward port 80 on my ConnectBox. I have a nginx web server running on my raspberry pi and can access it from within the local network. But when I add a new forwarding rule on my modem (as described here) I still cant access my web server page from outside the local network (get ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE)
What could be wrong?
Thank you for your help.
Hello @jstrnisa , did you solved your question with the tips of Bert?
If you can still use the help of our community members, or if you have any following up questions, please let us know by responding to this topic.
Hi @Bert! Sorry this did not work either. I followed your steps:
The result is the same as before. The server is not reachable on the http.
Any other ideas what could be wrong?
Thanks for your help!
It's a web server running in a docker container. It is a database server with a web interface so when it's running entering the IP in the browser a page opens. That is when accessed from within the local network. That makes me think that there is nothing wrong with the server configuration but on the router side.
I'm not really an expert so I might be wrong somewhere here but I could test my assumption by opening the SSH port.
Then if I can't ssh into the PI from outside the network it would mean a problem at the router.
PS: for testing access from outside the local network I use my phone because it is the only device to use mobile network.
@efok could you be a bit more specific? What is bridge and how do I enable it?
PS: I opened a SSH port (22) and could not ssh into the raspberry pi from my phone while on mobile network (when I am on wifi, I can)
Thank you for your help,
If your modem is in bridge mode, it functions as a modem only. That means the router function will be diabled, and you will need your own router, which wil get an external IP adress. So, you will be in full control of opening ports.
Ok, that I don't want to do. Buying and installing my own router. Is there a way to unblock port 80 (or port 443)?
Thank you for your help
It seems like no port forwarding rule I create works. I changed the listening port of the server to 5000 and tried to forward that port but it does not work either. the ports are just not open. Who can I contact so this can be fixed?
Good afternoon @jstrnisa, I think I found the cause of the problem. You didn't have an ipv4 only ip address yet, port forwarding is only possible with an ipv4 address. You will have this within 24 hours and it should work. Keep us updated!
