Since a reboot I am unable to reach the IPFire box using 192.168.1.1:444, and thus seem to have locked myself out of the administration account. The firewall, router and OVPN functions seem to work.
The changes made by me that required a reboot were to transfer the logs to an external drive (USB) following the wiki made for this (wiki.ipfire.org - Transfer the logs to an external drive). Not sure why this would/could influence IPFire to refuse to connect to a web-browser.
IPFire version 2.27 update 159 -
When logging on to the system using a web-browser - I get the following error message (Firefox):
Unable to connect
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 192.168.1.1:444.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Using Chrome it looks like:
192.168.1.1 refused to connect.
- Checking the connection
- Checking the proxy and the firewall
Check your Internet connection
Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
Allow Chromium to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.
If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again.
If you use a proxy server…
Check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don’t believe you should be using a proxy server: Go to the Chromium menu > Settings > Show advanced settings… > Change proxy settings… and make sure your configuration is set to “no proxy” or “direct.”
