Hello,

I have a very strange problem.

 

I have created a windows service uniGUI application. Everything works fine if I enter the following address on the browser:

http://localhost:8077

 

but if I use a DynDNS service, when entering http://whatever.dyndns.org:8077

 

doesn't seem to respond. Anyone has any idea about that?

 

Thank you.

Port 8077 maybe blocked from external access.

Port 8077 maybe blocked from external access.

 

My first impression was that and I totally checked the Firewall on the computer.

Everything is open, so I thought it may be software problem with domain names.

Some routers do not support loopback connections. Have you tried connecting from a computer that is actually out on the internet?

 

It is true. In my Office is not possible to use inet address that need loopback, but here in my home it is not a problem. At the same time in the Office the telephone company is different that in my house. Somebody toll me that it depends on company's configuration of the network, so it is possible caused by router or by network's configuration. I don't know exactly, but it does not work as expected.

 

Then, in my office I solved it with a modification of c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\host file in the machine I'm testing the app and including in it the address (f.e. xxxx.no-ip.biz) with the ip of machine with the running service.

 

Sometime, I use some servers of my clients outside Dominican Rep. and I do Remote Desktop connection to a server, and call the application from that server.
