First just try to access some regular file via the web server. Plop an image in HTMLRoot or something and try to access that using a

type URL.

should http still work, if i put in the cert?

I have a house_status.html that i've been using for 10+ years, noticed that still works

Alas, "This site can’t provide a secure connection" on https.

PBKAC yet again.

Non-secure connections will still work on the non-secure port, whatever you set that up for. If you are doing any port forwarding here, be sure you are forwarding the secure port, not port 80. The default secure port is 443 unless you changed in the CQC installer setup.

And of course remember that, even inside the house, you can only access the secure port via the public domain name, because the security certificate is keyed to that. You can't use the internal host name for secure access.

Oho, the port forwarding was it! It works, both on phone and laptop when not on my WiFi network!

Thanks dude. Now off to figure out how to do the phone scaling thing.

You could, if you wanted, install another instance of the web server on another machine, create your own self-signed certificate for the internal host name, and use that for secure internal connections.

You can't have two different certificates for the same host/domain name, so you can't set up one certificate for one port and one for another port on the same web server instance. The certificate stuff doesn't differentiate by port, just by host/domain name, AFAIK.

but on internal connections, couldn't I just use the regular insecure port? I'd make sure I only bookmark it via IP, so I don't accidentally hit it from outside.

You can, sure. I was just saying if you want to always use secure connections. In the house, presumably the wireless encryption would protect you well enough from spying eyes of neighbors.

The EdgeRouter can do NAT loopback, so you should be able to use your public domain name everywhere, including internally.
do the needful ...

This stuff is like reading stereo instructions. Who writes these "instructions", and how far down the list is "Human" in terms of languages spoken?

OMG trying to install my certs on the new server. I want to seriously punch whomever writes up instructions, stuff makes no sense.  Esp when I only do it less than 1x/ear.
