I have just setup my Drobo5N and installed the ownCloud app. I’m able to access the ownCloud files from my internal address, but can’t reach it using my static address. I do have a static IP address let’s just call it: 22.214.171.124 which runs to a DSL modem. I have a wireless router as the only connection to the modem with address: 126.96.36.199. My Drobo is static at 188.8.131.52 on the subnet.
I have created a TCP port forward on the modem which forwards port 8051 (ownCloud) to the router and on the router I have told it to forward TCP port 8051 to 184.108.40.206 (the Drobo).
When I point a browser to https://220.127.116.11:8051, I do get to the ownCloud files. If I try https://18.104.22.168:8051, I get a connection fail.
Any ideas what I am missing here? My modem is an ATT U-verse and the router is an Amped Wireless.
Hi Paul. I have made a little more progress, but still not there. The issue was that the Drobo was located behind two routers so once I bridged the ATT modem I was able to get the Test to determine the port was now open. However, when I try to point a browser to it, the connection times out. I found some hits on problems with not having a “real” SSL certificate, but so far I’ve been unable to get one created that will point to a free DNS domain I set up to reference the IP address.
So still looking…
