IP address conflict

Postby goldensolo » Fri Apr 06, 2012 2:03 pm

Hello,

I am not able to connect to RP externally and I believe that the port forwarding is working correctly but I have a conflict over the actual addressing.

In the RP setup it shows the address to use internally (127.0.0.1:9080) which works fine. It states to set the port forwarding on my router for ports 9080-9083 to 127.0.0.1. The problem is that my router says that that isn't a valid address. My router address is 192.168.1.1 and it shows my computer as 192.168.1.3. Also if I use a what's my ip I get a 183....... Now in my router I can enable remote access and designate only port 9080 to that 183..... address but I still don't get anything.

Where is RP getting the 127.0.0.1 from? In all the forums I've seen the address on that screen is the same as the computers assigned address from the router.

Hi,

In your router, port forward 9080-9083 to your pc, which is 192.168.1.3

Use your ip address shown by Whats my Ip when you connect to your Remote Potato Server from outside your LAN (i.e. when you are away from home), like http://183.123.123.123:9080

Ok, I tried it setting the RP to use my IP address and then I tried it from another computer and my phone. It passed authentification but failed system settings download. Same thing if I set RP to use dyndns... so it must be connecting to the server but then has some other issue. I have a WP7 and tried using media buddy and smart potato...

My router shows the forwarding is working:
[LAN access from remote] from 174.252.XXX.XXX:XXXX to 192.168.1.3:9080, Saturday, April 07,2012 16:01:03

I checked the debug log of RP but it just shows the last entry as starting server on port 9080/.. until I stop it.

Could you try to disable the authentication just for testing.

By authentication I assume you mean security as in username/password. Yes I have tried having it off or even entering the wrong password but it still passes authentication. Again the dyndns is working as I see my router forwarding to port 9080 if I use the dyndns address or my IP address directly. It just seems that if I could either set my router to forward to the address that RP calls out it would work since it does on the server comp. I don't understand where/how RP is getting a 127.0.0.1 address when I know my computer on the router is 192.168.1.3

Ok, I think it's narrowed down to a port issue since I can connect to RP on the HTPC and other computers on the network by using the router assigned IP for the HTPC.

If I go canyouseeme.org it shows port 9080 is closed. I have it opened in the network firewall settings but I didn't see anything in the anti-virus software. I tried to add a rule for RP. Where all do I need to look to make sure 9080-9083 is open?

There could be a firewall in your router as well.
And in certain cases we have seen that the ISP does block some ports.
Check your router first, and then call your ISP and ask if they block 9080-9083

It was my anti-virus. I disabled it and everything works now. I had added rules to allow the programs and ports and all kinds of junk but must not have entered the right stuff. At least I know what to focus on now. I need to enable 9080 on local ports (not remote), correct?

Hi.
I would guess that it should be both local and remote.
