Xfinity issue.
« on: December 14, 2018, 02:14:15 PM »
Ok so I'm on my router and i goto www.gosportwx.com it shows this

Not Found
The requested URL / was not found on this server.

Apache/2.2.22 (Debian) Server at www.gosportwx.com Port 80

The only way for me to see it is going to https://www.gosportwx.com .. Now outside of my network I can see it using http://gosportwx.com .. anyone else having this issue with Xfinity? I need to know because I can't get my GRLevel3 radar to upload like it should.

I think there's a case of apples:oranges:bananas going on here.

Your website at gosportwx.com appears to be hosted at GoDaddy.  http://gosportwx.com/ and http://www.gosportwx.com/ both end up at the same location (your website) as GoDaddy treats both URLs as the same.  The browser is only looking up your domain name for the connection anyway, and both the gosportwx.com and www.gosportwx.com DNS lookups return the same IP address.

Currently, neither the www. and the plain domain have a valid certificate, so https:// to either does not work.  Getting an SSL certificate from GoDaddy can be an expensive proposition or you can use the fairly complicated https://www.sslforfree.com/ to generate LetsEncrypt certs and the directions on how to do that with GoDaddy .. that would allow you to offer https:// to your site.

GRLevel3 currently only used FTP (not FTPS or SFTP) and if GoDaddy disallows FTP access, you're kinda hosed.  There is a program
called BitVice https://www.bitvise.com/ftp-bridge that can act as an FTP server to GRLevel3 and use SFTP to talk to the website.  Also complicated to set up but doable.

XFinity doesn't care about http/https/ftp/sftp per se.. they just transport stuff back and forth using TCP/IP.

I hope this helps...

Thanks Ken! Using BitVice as we speak so far so good! :)

I have GoDaddy and I'm using regular FTP services.  No SFTP or certs involved to do that.

I am using SSLForFree on my site.  Partly to see if I can do it.  But partly because it looks like Chrome may eventually bitch if any site doesn't have it.
