Remote access not working. DNS lookup = 0.0.0.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the subject says, remote access by site name isn't working. The DNS lookup result is 0.0.0.0. Linking by public IP address works, but then I get a certificate error. The certificate issued by GoDaddy is linked to thecowlesfamily.homeserver.com, the registered name. The current public address is 98.180.37.73. My ISP blocks 80 so you'll have to go to https if you want to try either way.

    I thought I read a problem somewhere about this, but can't find it now.

  • Never mind. Fixed this myself by using "Choose a different domain name". I hadn't tried that before because I really didn't want a DIFFERENT domain name. What is not clear in the name of that function is that you can choose the same name again. Apparently that refreshes the system with the current name and address. It now resolves to my public ip, and works.
