When setting up Let’s Encrypt, I ran into a failure that was only resolved when port 80 was forwarded through my router’s firewall. I only had port 443 forwarded when I initially attempted to obtain the certificate.
Once port 80 was forwarded through the firewall, the certificate was obtained successfully.
Is it presumed that ports 80 and 443 should be forwarded to the Web server? After the certificate was successfully setup, I closed port 80 at my router as it doesn’t serve a purpose in my opinion.
It seems like this should be mentioned in the “Learn more…” link in the Let’s Encrypt module page.
A bit off topic, should an option exist to enable an automatic redirect from port 80 to port 443?
I am running the current Freedombox image provided by Olimex with the Pioneer HSK I received last week.
