Forum OpenACS Development: Re: unable to access
what's your server networking setup? When you say "internally", what does that mean? From the server that is running AOLserver? Or from within your internal network?
What IP addresses is AOLserver listening on?
Can you do a "telnet %lt;internal IP> %lt;port>" on the server that is running AOLserver?
The networking is:
I also run nginx as a proxy server listening to IP 192.168.1.100 that points to AOLServer which is listening to the machine local ip address 127.0.0.1
Would nginx affect internal access?
If so why external access is properly working?
I blocked telnet access. SSH access is working fine
Internally: the computers those are in the same intranet 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255 (under the same gateway 192.168.1.1), have no access to the site.
Neither through the DNS nor through the internal IP.
I strongly believe the issue is on nginx.
I will paste the results later.
What do you mean with wrong DNS setup?
Well, the server is under a modem, which distributes the connection over a switch, and it forwards the http connection on port 80 to the respective machine, at 192.168.1.100.
Then, the proxy server (nginx) switches from 192.168.1.100:80 to 127.0.0.1:8001
So far, nginx is not the problem. I turned it down and set AOLServer directly to listen to the internal address 192.168.1.100 and the computers under the intranet have no access to the site.
Btw, the internal machines are running windows except the one that holds the site. it runs debian with standard installation without any browser to test the access.
