External IP address not working

Hi All. My flightaware external IP has stopped working for some reason I have port 8080 open on my router and my external IP hasn’t changed. Can anyone advise on what may be wrong?

Image below of what shows

Can you access it internally, then it’s a problem with the router forwarding.

For checking the local webserver, this log is useful:

sudo journalctl --no-pager -u lighttpd

You’ll need local or SSH access though.

I have done that and get this back

pi@piaware:~ $ sudo journalctl --no-pager -u lighttpd

This should do the trick if you paste it in one piece :wink:
Then restart lighttpd:

sudo systemctl restart lighttpd

You can check the log if it’s starting now.

Don’t think I have done it right as it’s not working

v" )/#server.modules += ( “mod_setenv” )/’ “$FILE”
done < <(find /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/* | grep -v dump1090-fa)
sudo systemctl restart lighttpd

You’d need to paste all 3 lines at once.
I’ve made it one line, but be sure you get everything until the end.

Do I need to type another code first? Nothing happens

pi@piaware:~ $ while read -r FILE; do sudo sed -i -e ‘s/^server.modules += ( “mo d_setenv” )/#server.modules += ( “mod_setenv” )/’ "FILE"; done < <(find /etc/l ighttpd/conf-available/* | grep -v dump1090-fa) pi@piaware:~

Nope, shouldn’t output anything.
Just change something.
Try restarting and check the log.

Why are you posting it, it’s working.

Also please see this page for reference on how to post logs:
https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wiki/wiki/Debug-commands

Or just use pastebin the next time and only post the link here :slight_smile:

My external IP still isn’t working, so I thought I hadn’t done something right

Well the web server is running.

Ctrl-F5?

In doubt, use a fresh image.
(For Beginners - How to Get Back Existing Station Number in A Fresh Install)

Yep. It’s still not loading. I’ll have a look and see what I can do.

wget http://localhost:8080/index.html

What does this return?
Also do a reboot and show the lighttpd log again, but post it on https://pastebin.com/ so it’s easier to read and post the link here.

Thanks. I’ll take a long at some point tomorrow

Done that command

So you see the webserver is working.

The router forwarding the port is not.

As you can see here I have ports open but it still doesn’t connect

download%20(1)

And that worked before?

There is no outgoing data on port 8080 that could activate this forwarding.
You need proper port forwarding, not this.

Sorted! I had 8081 open in the PF section but not 8080
