Hi. I have installed passbolt on Debian 9 “Strecth” following this guide “https://help.passbolt.com/hosting/install/ce/debian-9-stretch.html” All ok, application is working fine, i am satisfied.
Now i cannot access the web page from other pc. I have a HyperV host(10.0.2.10). Debian VM with passbolt(10.0.2.20). When i access HT//passbolt.dev from VM it works fine. When i try to access HT://passbolt.dev from hyperv host it says server not found.
10.0.2.20 - translates to “HT://passbolt.dev/auth/login” - Error Server not found
passbolt.dev - translates to “https://passbolt.dev/” - Error Server not found.
Ping from hyperv host to vm and also telnet to ports 80,443 works fine.
Please guide me what should i check and configure, thank you.
P.S. i cant insert more then 2 links, so the HT means https://
on debian vm in file /etc/hosts is a string
when i delete this string, passbolt dont open in vm.
passbolt.dev has to be reachable from your other hosts. Seems like you are using /etc/hosts as the “DNS” method to access your passbolt instnace. That is why when deleting the line from your local /etc/hosts you can’t access your passbolt instance.
In order to access passbolt.dev from your other nodes you should add an entry to /etc/hosts in all the nodes that require access to the passbolt instance.
Another approach would be to buy a non private domain name in any commercial domain name registrar.
Ok. i understand this.
i have added the string “10.0.2.20” to a host.
now i get another error in firefox
passbolt.dev uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is not trusted because it was signed by the issuer himself.
Btw, i have a vm with snipeit application. It works fine and opens in my all network with “http://license”
No need to add in hosts, and other workarounds. Can i somehow make passbolt work the same way?
Regarding the certificate and from the document you used to setup passbolt:
- Configure https
It is recommended to use https with passbolt (and, well, pretty much everything). To setup SSL we need a certificate. Here for the sake of brevity we will create a self-signed certificate. Of course you are free to use a proper free certificate and tidy up the server supported cypher suites.
In the following steps, we’ll generate a self signed certificate and configure apache and passbolt to use https.
So basically you are using a self signed certificate, which is good for local/dev purposes. The warning from firefox is the expected behavior under these circumstances. If you want to get rid of the warning use a proper SSL certificate using, for instance, let’s encrypt.
Regarding snipeit I have no experience with it, sorry about that.
Ok, then i think the problem is solved. Thank you.
