locked
remote access sub domain overiding the root address. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, this is puzzling me and I can't seem to solve it.

    I have my own domain with godaddy, and I set up vail to allow remote access via http://road.mydomain.com, but it also changed my records so that http://mydomain.com points to vail when http://mydomain.com should go to my website. I went back in to my godaddy control panel and changed it back. Then a day later it was wrong again. How can I fix this? I only want my vail server to be accessed from http://road.mydomain.com and then http://mydomain.com to go to my website.

     

    Thank you in advance.

  • If you're hosting both addresses locally, your router is likely to blame. It can only forward a given port to a single machine. So Vail is probably using UPnP to reconfigure your router.

    Another possibility is that the dynamic DNS client that Godaddy uses is doing the reconfiguration.

    Does GoDaddy have a feature in their Domain Manager, where you can lock the settings from being changed?  If so, then I would try that and see if it works.  Otherwise, if you're allowed to, I would suggest making the mydomain.homeserver.com that WHS normally sets up, and create a redirect page on your mydomain.com site which will redirect "road.mydomain.com" to "mydomain.homeserver.com".  That way you're not mucking with the settings for your domain, and you're still able to use your road.mydomain.com access.

    Hope this helps, and have a great day:)
