Access web page outside local network

Post by Joolde » Wed Nov 12, 2014 4:35 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to make my VRS available on the internet. I made a static IP, portforwarded, and made a no-ip URL ( http://jordy-radar.no-ip.info/VirtualRadar/desktop.html ). Everything works fine now, except for one thing. People outside my network can't see the page.
What could be the problem? I tried my firewall not to scan traffic through port 80, not to scan VirtualRadar.exe, but it still didn't work after that.. Can someone help me out?

Regards,
Jordy

check your port here http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/

i think you have a problem with no-ip
try to give your friend your IP adress instead no-ip adress to confirm

few more questions.....
Are you using windows or linux version?
If first...what windows you have?

Thanks for that link!

I gave my friend both the IP-address, and the no-ip link, and none of them worked..

But I think I found the problem. I portforwarded my IP-address 192.168.178.70, but then VRS changed the internet address to 46.44.166.191, which is not opened..

So my current external IP-address is 213.247.64.13 with port 80 opened, but VRS links to the 46.44.166.191 (which works fine on my own network). And no-ip is connected to that same link. But when I try to use te other IP-address, I just get a blank page..

And I use windows 7.

You don't forward port on WAN IP!
You forward port on LAN IP!
Here is how you have to do it.
1. Turn off DHCP on your PC that runs VRS. Put static IP eg. 192.168.1.100
2. Open port 80 forwarding to that IP adress
3. Configure no-ip in your router to update itself if you have dynamic IP by provider
4. In local network, you are using eg.192.168.1.100/VirtualRadar/desktop.html
- User connecting from wan uses eg. your.no-ip.com/VirtualRadar/desktop.html
Personally i use dyndns.org rather then no-ip and have no issues.

I followed exactly those steps the first time as well.. But what I just thought: I use a proxy. Might that be the problem? Because my normal IP is 213.247.64.28 (open port), but my proxy also has 46.44.166.191(closed port). And websites looking for my IP are saying i use the 213.--- but noip connects via 46.--

My ISP does guide my internet traffic over a proxy server. It's just how they work, so I can't change it.

whatismyip.com shows 46.44.166.191, but other ip-lookup websites show the 213... thing I posted earlier.

You should contact your ISP to solve the problem.
They have to take care of port

A lot of ISP's are now hiding users behind proxies. Most will not give you an outside IP unless you pay big for it, sometimes not even then. There is a shortage of IPv4 addresses in the real world. We are going to see this more and more. Most mobiles are like this.

May I suggest another solution, feed a bigger VRS site with your data. There are a few around now, depending on your location, we perhaps can point you in that direction. That way you can see your aircraft on screen anywhere along with your friends. It also helps the site fill some gaps.

Let us know your location, perhaps we can point you in the direction of a local site to you.

Cheers

OK, thanks for your help!

I live in the south-west of the Netherlands. Don't know if there are yet any gaps to fill, but it would be nice :)
