Problem to connect from out of LAN

Unread postby kurdovic » Mon Mar 11, 2013 5:35 pm

hi, i succesfully installed and configured the server and client on a lan, now i´m trying to connect the clients from the internet but when i put type the username y password and press login the client returns to the login windows. i´m using xampp on windows with a dyndns domain name.

i´ve already included the local ip address in the hosts file.

thanks

Do not write the local IP addresse in host file !
Only the internet IP.
(for try dont write in host, only if very slow)


From computer on internet,
can ping your dyndns machine ?
(eg: ping yourserver.dyndns.org)

well now i open the client and it hides inmediatly and stays hidden until the message of "pc server response is too low..."

the dyndns is configured in the router so the router is who responds to the ping, the port 80 it´s been forwarded to the server local ip. The internet speed looks fine so i don´t think is the conection.

thanks again

So ping (from internet) your dyndns (to get back IP address)
and write it in hosts file.

yes i´ve already done that but the problem remains... i modified the hosts file first only in server, then only in client, then both and nothing happened.

thanks again

I have experience this also. I have static IP address. I can even access the admin using the public ip address... but the client is not working. It keeps on repeating back.
