Can't Access My Local Web Server By Its External IP
May 24, 2008
I have a local web server that I want to make available outside of my local network of two computers. I configured NAT at my router, configured the firewall. I Typed the external IP and got nothing, while I still was able to access my web server by typing "localhost", I tried both IIS and Apache, but what is interesting is that fact that the other people can access my web server via that external IP, I just cannot access it from my local network.
I am using Windows XP Pro, and since I updated to Internet Explorer 7 I am having problems getting web sites to work on my PC in Internet Explorer using the local IIS web server. These web sites are using ASP and Access databases.
The two errors I get are:
Operation must use an updateable query.
Cannot modify the design of table 'TABLE_NAME'. It is in a read-only database. (they are not read only!)
Does anyone know how I can get this working so I can test my web sites locally before uploading them to the live sites?
I want to save the access logs of our websites on an external server. If I do this now with the default setup, the gets overwritten every day. The desired file name format whould be: websitedomain-tld-access-2014-10-24.log
How can I tell Plesk to do this and how can I make sure the statistics keep working?
I have a script running on my server that has access via port 1031, but I would like to block access to it from the public, and instead allow access only through a php proxy script on my server which will connect to port 1031 via 127.0.0.1 (i.e. 127.0.0.1:1031)
So some may be thinking why? Currently users gain access by heading to mydomain.com:1031 . However I would now like to include adverts along side the script (but can't physically make adjustments to the script as the company that made the script has vanished of earth) So the only way I can think of doing this, is by having the adverts in an Frame next to the proxy script.
So does opening up access via 127.0.0.1 just for this case, give me security problems?
I am currently unable to access the Plesk control panel except from the web server itself. When I try any of the following options, all work on the server itself but externally all I get is the default Tomcat page.
I don't know if the problem is on the server itself or something within our firewall - we use Microsoft Forefront TMG. The port 8443 is open, and the Tomcat page is being served. All websites working fine, both internally and externally. The server itself is in a DMZ on the network.
The server is running Centos 7 with Plesk 12.
I just noticed that when adding a new domain, I am warned that the domain resolves to another IP address - the external one. Currently, the IP address set up in Plesk is the internal (192.168...) address. Could it be that I need to change this to the external?
I'm planning a website at the moment but I'm wondering about a slight issue, regarding the local root folder of a website.
Currently, I'm using Dreamweaver to create a website and I have had no problems of uploading my files to a site through Dreamweaver before. But I will not have access to my computer for about one month every year. However, I have a laptop available during that month. But since my local root folder is located on my stationary computer it seems impossible for me to, in any way, use that laptop to manage my site (upload new files to the server).
we have a cpanel server that has been running our website and emails. We have just obtained another dedicated server. I would like to keep our first server running our website and move all of our email for the domain to the new server. The second server has the same setup and runs cpanel as well. Can anyone point me in the right direction to achieve this?
On a CPanel server, I have one account where mx records are configured to route all the e-mails to external mail server. Everything works great, except when the e-mail is from another account on the same CPanel server, it doesn't reach external mail server, I think it goes to e-mail box on CPanel server.
Is there a way to fix it? (How to send e-mails from the CPanel server to external mail server?)
We require a server with 10+ IP addresses (Each one with a separate OS and external IP Address, i.e myip.dk)
This is to be used as an added security level for our employees logging into our system from outside the office. Our system monitors the IP Address and we need to restrict access to certain items depending on the IP. We basically would like to set up multiple VPS on one server.
Can you confirm how this would work?I know we can buy a Windows VPS for around Ģ15, but we need multiple of these (10-20)and figure our own server might be the way forward.
I have a client who has hosting with another company for their website and they have their own internal MS Exchange server for email...
In order to switch the hosting to one of my servers they just need to alter the A record for the website to my webserver's IP address at the registrar - correct?
They also want to start sending a "mailshot" to existing clients - what is the best way of doing this? I have no experiance of Exchange Server so I am thinking of running something simple like phpList on the webserver but how can this be configured to use their Exchange Server?
I am thinking that if I just setup phplist as normal then the emails it sends would bounce, is the trick to setup phplist differently or to change the servers DNS settings for that domain?
I have one dedicated server that hosts a PHP/MySQL highly dynamic site. In peak periods my site is starting to get high load (still very manageable but enough to warrant thinking about the future). My site is mostly images - photo gallery type stuff.
I've thought about using Amazon WS to host images from my site but it works out too expensive as do other similar Content Delivery options.
From what I can tell, when the load is high, mysql CPU usage isn't too bad, it hovers around 20% and peaks to 60% every 20 seconds or so, so my assumption is that the load is partly from apache (I see lots of apache processes in peak periods).
I am considering just get a cheap VPS hosted elsewhere that will be used as a static image/file server to release stress from my main server- How much stress would this help release?- Any other suggestions on solutions?
- I would have to do quite a bit of work to my application to ensure images are posted to this server and not my main server which seems a pain (or cron these tasks).
I am experiencing a problem for domains where the primary nameservers are not on my server. While all "native" domains work ok for DKIM verification, when checking the public key at [URL] .... I get a parsing error for "non-native" domains, because the record is included in double quotes (whereas this is not the case for "native" domains).
I have checked the dns records over and over again - and the structure for both "native" and "non-native" is the same...
I have Plesk Panel installed in server 1 and mailenable in server2. I disabled mail service in server 1 and configured external mail (by the way, I cannot start it back) - Tools & Settings -> Mail -> External SMTP Server to my server 2.
Every contact form created with Presence Builder never worked, and I do not know why. Is there any work around? When Plesk is going to handle e-mail forms with a PHP file?
I have a question if it is possible to use my local server as database storage and even some uploaded files. I am planning to host my website even in a shared hosting server provided that I could used my local server as data storage.
