Some applications are unable to get pinged - I am using a local domain in HTTPS

Title says most of it, i have a series of applications that Homarr is unable to ping, includes applications that doesnt require auth, like openspeedtest. My setup looks like this: local.mydomain.yes, through NPM i have each app its sub domain. In Homarr, some apps are pinged correctly, some arent.
Solution:
i neglected the https:// in the domain given to homarr thinking it would automatically go https, instead, by default it was http

What error codes, if any, you get in the homarr logs?

I'm guessing those responses may come from npm and not the app itself. It's a bit strange that it shows the IP:port instead of your subdomain.domain.tld though, but that might be correct If NPM is anything like traefik, it should provide you with local addresses that you can use when on the same network, which are less protected being in a close environment. I gather you're already using it since you've mentioned using "local" in the address

what do you mean by less protected? HTTP over HTTPS?
explosive parrot
all the connection refusals are happening at 192.168.2.1:80; is that the address of your NPM?
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
no, port 80 is not being used by anything
Tag
Tag3mo ago
No, still https, just bypassing layers of authetication or filters like authelia.
explosive parrot
Can you try pinging or tracerouting the affected services from your docker container? It must be used by something, if that's where the blocking is happening. is that the address your domain forwards too?
Tag

No port 80 is just the default for http when resolving a domain to an ip. That's normal But it should point to NPM which then points to the right service
explosive parrot
@Alea Iacta Est can you double check the addresses in the JSON file proper? I suspect a typo might cause a block at NPM
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
my local domain is pointing to that IP yes, 192.168.2.1 which is where i am hosting everything and then through NPM i am re routing every app i have to a given subdomain, to their port
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
where do i find the JSON
explosive parrot
they are wherever you have mounted you homarr config folder.
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
im on it what should i check? if the domain is correct redirecting me to the app?
explosive parrot
Exactly, sometimes some save errors can leave the internal url saved incorrectly after a typo; I've also had issues with trailing spaces in URLs before (why my mobile keyboard keeps adding trailing spaces I'll never know)
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
well it is if i click on the app in homarr it gets me to the app
explosive parrot
Clicking the link sends you to the external URL. Status checks are done against the internal URL. Two different fields.

I use Traefik and have 0 issues with the status indicator for my Filebrowser. However when you put a service behind a reverse proxy it usually can not be accessed by the LAN address. You have to go trough the proxy. Therefore make sure you add the full domain name and NOT the local ip address to be monitored.

no, you guys didnt understand what is my setup i have a local domain, pointing to my home network ip the usage of the domain is only for SSL purpose, nothing else pinging the local domain, pings my server ip, in this case is 192.168.2.1 just for info local.domain.yes--->192.168.2.1 theres no external routing

Let's make it simple. Go into your homarr's command shell and try to curl/wget the addresses that are not working. See what those return as error (or not). This will at least make a baseline to tell us if your container can or cannot speak to those services Make sure to triple check your addresses for typo, rewrite them completely by hand if necessary, just as a sanity check.

docker exec right?
Tag
Tag3mo ago
Inside the homarr container
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
docker exec -it homarr
Tag
Tag3mo ago
If your homarr's container ID is homarr then yes But I'm not sure it is, so do docker ps first to get the right id
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
it is yeah im installing curl in the container i basically get the same exact error connection refused
Tag
Tag3mo ago
If you already have wget you can just use that instead
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
it returns my domain:80
Tag
Tag3mo ago
This means that this problem isn't comming from homarr, but a problem in the setup.
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
yeah and that basically says its not a matter of "app auth" issue might be NPM?
explosive parrot
Can you try something for me? Purposefully put in an incorrect subdomain to see if the error is the same or different.
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
yes same error ok guys i am an idiot
explosive parrot
Do you have the same settings inside NPM for the ones that work and the ones that don't?
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
like complete idiot sorry for wasting your time i got it fixed

Tag3mo ago
Could you share the answer? As stupid as it may be, someone might come to have a similar issue and this would help them
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
oh it makes me very ashamed well basically i run all my sub network in HTTPS/SSL
Solution
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
i neglected the https:// in the domain given to homarr thinking it would automatically go https, instead, by default it was http
Alea Iacta Est
Alea Iacta Est3mo ago
and that explains everything 🙃

Well, I did say that port 80 was default for http, not https x) If this makes it any better, it happens more often than you think. It's the reason why we had to add a warning under the box about http/s.

should i ask a couple more questions? they arent related to this problem

You can do it in general if they are simple question or open a new ticket. It makes it easier for others to search for relatable issues
