Description of my issue
Hello! Thank you everyone reading this, YunoHost is such an amazing software community!
I just installed Yunohost on my RPI4 at home for the first time a few weeks ago, following the online guide. I can access from my local network but not yet from outside my local network.
As part of installation, I already set up a reserved IP address for my RPI4 and configured the 8 specified port forwards in my router config. I followed these official yunohost ISP box config steps and can run
sudo yunohost firewall reload and the server reports that the 8 port forwards are configured correctly. I tried enabling and disabling UPnP.
When I run my diagnosis, I see that port 80 is not reachable from outside the network. I called my internet service provider (Cox Communications, in the US) and learned that they disallow forwarding port 80 (officially, the ban is due to “web servers and worms”!) unless I pay them much more for a “business” account. I think this port 80 ban is the reason that I can only access the site [maindomain].noho.st when connected to my local network, but not from outside, and why I can’t complete a Let’s Encrypt certificate signing.
I found a previous topic suggesting the idea of configuring an alternative HTTP port, like 8080. I also wonder if there is a VPN yunohost app or related yunohost app that might be able to overcome the port 80 ban?
I found a few previous topics related to the Let’s Encrypt errors I see. Here is the closest issue
Here is the Let’s Encrypt error I get (paste.yunohost.org) when I run the certificate signing process from my administration user interface logged in as admin.
And here is my
/etc/hosts file, with a few additions based on answers I found in previous topics in this forum (maindomain.tld is just a placeholder for my actual address, which uses noho.st):
127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters 127.0.1.1 yunohost 127.0.0.1 maindomain 127.0.0.1 xmpp-upload.maindomain.tld 127.0.0.1 muc.maindomain.tld
Any suggestions or troubleshooting ideas are much appreciated!
Happy belated May Day,
