https address inaccessable from WAN

#1
Hi,

Ever since installing custom firmware I've been remotely accessing my mothers Humax HDR-FOX T2 box to schedule recordings and whatever. Having recently been given the option of HTTPS, I've enabled it and can access the WebIF via HTTPS locally however remote access won't work. It's nothing to do with certificates as it doesn't even get that far, it's like the connection is immediately closed though if I remove the 's' and make it http I can access via WAN fine.

Any clues as to what's up here?

Thanks :)

https uses port 443 instead of port 80, so it's probably something to do with the router not allowing inbound port 443 requests.

You've got it in one mate, changed port forwarding from 80 to 443 and now https works. Would it be possible for the developer to allow us to specify our own https port or even make it the same as http? SickBeard and other programs allow this and it means I don't have to have two forwarding rules for the same program, also it frees up 443 for other things.

Thanks :)

You could put a port forward rule to change ports as it goes through the router and specify the outside port in the URL by adding :50443 or whatever your chosen port was at the end. So it's 50433 on the outside and 443 on the inside.
