RedAndBlack Posted November 21, 2022 Share Posted November 21, 2022 (edited) Hi I have set up an old desktop pc with ubuntu 22.04 server edition to host a web application that I have written. I have pointed my domain to it and can access it via the domain but only from the laptop I'm using right now which tells me that the server works fine as I can use the website and on the local network I can use the domain to access it so I am certain the domain is pointed correctly also leaving me to think it has got to be ports not forwarded correctly. I think it might have to do with my server desktop not having a wifi card or dongle and being too far form the router to reach with a cable so the laptop im using now is connected to the router via wifi and then the server desktop is connected to the laptop via ethernet cord. is it possible that the server not being connected directly to the router is causing an issue? I have logged into my router and tried to forward the ports for my desktop but had to add the device using the mac address but not sure if it is actually opening its ports when i try, this laptops ports open when i change the settings i tested them on a portchecker website. If I were able to find a browser for my server i could use the website to test if that devices is opened up, perhaps thers another way? (my ufw has allowed the required ports too) sorry if thats a whole lot at once im just extremely confused at this point, i feel as though I'm very close to success but clueless to get there. EDIT: I forgot to mention that sometime while being stuck trying to figure this out I have lost access to webmin, it just wont load the log in page.
