iFolder 3 thru firewall

I can't make it work thru a firewall (bordermanager NAT).

When I use it inside the private network, it works ok, using the DNS name
as the server name.
On the public network, the DNS name resolve correctly to the address used
on the server (NAT), but I can't connect. If I use the public address
instead of the DNS name it works. If I setup a new account, (not changing
the address of one that did work), I can never connect using the public IP.

I can't use IP address all the time because the laptop users would have to
keep changing the addresses, making the products useless.

I have to point out that when it do works, I have a message about the
certificate, and that I have to accept the certificates.

The iFolder web interface works fine.

Well, yes, you have a self-signed certificate so that may be ok. If,
however, it's talking about a hostname mismatch then you may have more of
an issue...

Hmm, I use it in exactly the scenario that you describe! I have an entry
in both internal and external DNS obviously with different IP addresses.

You have opened both http and https from the outside haven't you?

I even removed (temporarly) the filters to see if it would work, but it didn't.

No, I get :
Server error in '/simias10' application
Not Found
Description: Error processing request.

Error Message: HTTP 404. Not Found


but the web interface for iFolder works. The problems I have are with the
Client

Nope.
The error message I get is:
Server was unable to process resquest --> The underlying connection was
closed: Unable to connect to the remote server

Re: iFolder 3 thru firewall

Finally, I scrapped everything, including microsoft .net framework.
Reinstalling with "ifolder3-3.2.5347.1-1-setup.exe" instead of the latest
version and using https://ifolder.yourdns.com instead of ifolder.yourdns.com
and it works now.
