Wrong URL being sent in email

Hi all,


Small deployment just finalising the sharing of files by sending link. The URL being sent is incorrect in that it has http(s)://[internal_IP_Address]/filename etc. Whereas it should read http(s)://[FQDN]/filemname. I am using the postfix mail built in to Filr. it's probably staring me in th eface but I cannot find where to change the URL to reflect the FQDN. (obviously the internal IP will not work when being accessed externally).

Many thanks

That is strange... Did you specify FQDN when installing Filr? If you go into Filr appliance configuration and there under network, is the settings correct?

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Yes, the hostname is correct. Mind you, I haven't sent too many emails since getting Postfix to work so i'll try another one and see if it has rectified.

Ah, so you are using the builtin postfix in Filr to send the mail?

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Yes - got that working last week (been off for a few days) see my previous posts regarding postfix mail.

I had it working is the previous version (1.01) but rebuilt when 1.1 came out and the correct url was being sent then - but not now. - typical.

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Ok so I tried to send the mail again both "email link" which fires up your own mail client and "email link using filr" and both had the following link [url]https://[InternalIP]:8443/ssf/s/readFile/share/11/-4550618197439382748/publicLink/DOC005.pdf[/url]. it really should only be https://FQDN/ssf/s/readFile/share/11/-4550618197439382748/publicLink/DOC005.pdf - No ip and no port.

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

"Share File" does send the correct link ? So I don't know where the other links are coming from.

Check the reverse proxy settings in the appliance admin console.
That's what's used to build the URL in e-mail notifications.

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Hi Jmarton,

Yes I've checked the reverse proxy settings and they appear correct. The hostname is fine. I changed the hostname from [Filr.mydomain.com] to [url]https://[filr.mydomain.com][/url] and reconfigured and then tried [url]https://[external_IP[/url] address]. But it is still sending the emails as [url]https://[internal_IP]:8443[/url]. It has to be a setting somewhere alright - but where is the question...

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

I've rebuilt in large deployment (was a small deployment) and the same issue is occurring. The URL being sent by both "email link" and "Email link using Filr" is the internal IP address with port 8443 (e.g. https://192.168.1.1:8443/[otherstuff]). When I use Share File and send it to an external user the URL is 100% correct. The reverse proxy settings are correct as far as i can see. I'll open an SR to get it resolved if necessary.

Thanks

Anthony

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Ok Finally resolved in a round about way.

I removed the option for users to share using the file link and the share file option is all that's available. On the share settings untick "Share File Using Link". then the user only get the option to sharefile which is what I want anyway.

Thanks for the assistance

Re: Wrong URL being sent in email

Hi,

first sorry for the English. I have the same problem. But I noticed when i used "Share File Using Link", the Link is always gernerated with the Hostname entered in the Browers (or IP-Adress). Ex. Your FQDN is filr.domain.com:8080 (external), internal filr (Domain adding automatic). The Link will generated with "http://filr:8080". This looks like a Bug?
