Connection Type: Behind router
FreedomBox Version: Debian 10 Buster (FreedomBox Version 21.4)
I am trying to configure a Matrix homeserver and have some problems configuring
the domain. When I went to register at the provided GnuDIP link, there was no
option in the drop-down menu for the freedombox.rocks domain. Instead, there
was only the sds-ip.de domain, which I selected. I then pointed it to the
FreedomBox’s IP address, and then entered the following into the ‘Configure’
panel of the Dynamic DNS Client page:
Service Type: GnuDIP
GnuDIP Server Address: sds-ip.de
Update URL: [blank]
Domain Name: [domain name].sds-ip.de
URL to look up public IP: [blank]
I then added the domain name to the Domain Name field in the System > Configure tab, as well
as well as in Matrix’s configuration page.
However, Element says the homeserver is invalid when I enter it.
I tried entering the server’s domain name in my browser, and it returns that it’s
an invalid URL. I also watched the FreedomBox Foundation’s video on setting up a server
with Matrix and Riot, but other than the different domain name, I believe I followed the
steps correctly. What might have I done wrong, or what might I have missed?
Thank you for reading my post. Please let me know if you need anything else.
