Hello I,m a newbe, non-technical user.
FreedomBox directly plugged into a Netgear router at home.
Self-purchased router I have access to; no access to the ISP (device) possible.
New Olimex Pioneer kit nov 2020. Manually updated to most recent version after initial setup.
Ports 80 & 443 have been forwarded.
Assigned a static local IP-address. Freedombox is accessible through that local IP-address.
http(s)://examplelocalhostname.local gives an error in browsers: server not found.
Router’s interface gives a 192.1xx.xxxx WAN IP-address. I’ve read https://discuss.freedombox.org/t/lets-encrypt-error-message/870: am I in trouble here?
IP-address that shows up when used myip.datasystems24: 83.12x.x.xx.
Freedombox is behind NAT (checked at the Dynamic DNS ‘status’ page).
(* Temporarely activated DMZ, gave it time to adjust settings accordingly, nothing happened that solved the issues I describe as follows, so I put it right back to the settings like I describe above).
Requested a domain name at Gnudip system24. Let’s say it’s example.freedombox.rocks.
I tried to obtain a Let’s Encrypt certificate. It gives an error:
Failed to obtain certificate for domain example.freedombox.rocks: Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator webroot, Installer None Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for example.freedombox.rocks Using the webroot path /var/www/html for all unmatched domains. Waiting for verification… Cleaning up challenges Failed authorization procedure. example.freedombox.rocks (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Fetching http://example.freedombox.rocks/.well-known/acme-challenge/PscyzUwtVe7Ir9G35Jh89O8sMJ_XAhv-FVta_cksyj8: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem).
Also, on the Name Services page in Freedombox, the HTTP, HTTPS and SSH services are not shown, unlike the introduction text states in the Name Services app in freedombox and the Let’s Encrypt screencast via Debian manual pages show:
" For each type of name, it is shown whether the HTTP, HTTPS, and SSH services are enabled or disabled for incoming connections through the given name."
Instead, there are the colums Type, Domain Name and Services and the option to ’ Configure’ them. I have watched the Let’s Encrypt screencast from the Debian pages and the page that’s shown in the video differs from what I see. The colored (pending) labels HTTPS, HTTPS and SSH are missing. So I cannot see the status of the services. Not sure this is an error, but it differs from what I expected to see.
All in all: any thoughts?
