Ive portforwarded port 1194 to 1194 udp which is my internal server ip address when i try to access from my work computer it cannot find the page and if i try to ping it i get no response. Im using a netgear wndr3700 router and ive set up port forwarding to get utorrent working correctly. The server seems to be working ok other than i cant connect remotely. Any ideas are appreciated.

You will not be able to ping your HDA outside the network using that address. If you are VPNed into your network, you may be able to though. Forwarding UDP 1194 enables you to VPN into the network using hdaconnect for Windows or a similar client on Linux or MAC.

That address is for accessing your web apps. In order to do that, please see for more guidance. This does require forwarding port 80 to your HDA IP.

Thanks for the reply. What i was trying to do was get adito working, i originally set up my router as per the wiki guide i.e.

Router (Settings)
In order to use (substitute your user name for user) to access Adito VPN from any computer using the web browser, create a Port Forward or Virtual Server rule. This is a required step for the Map HDA Folders and Apps options to work from outside your network.

On a D-LINK WBR-2310 router, set a Virtual Server setting to forward port 443 public and 4443 private to the HDA server IP address using TCP traffic type

Is this all i need to do to access adito from a remote computer or does adito need setting up as per the "hosting a website" wiki page you linked me?

Understand. I have Adito set up that way. If you followed the wiki guidance you listed, the virtual server should be set up correctly. Forwarding port 1194 has nothing to do with this setup.

You should be able to access it via with user name being your user name.

If it does not work, then there may be a firewall issue somewhere. You can also try changing the public port to 8443, then add that to the end of the url like this:

I have been using Adito outside my network for quite some time with no issues.

once again, thanks for taking the time to help me

i might be making a little head way... before i didnt have port 4443 forwarded to my server. I have a netgear wndr3700 router and in the port forwarding section of the settings it doesnt have public and private ports. so i have forwarded 443 and 4443 to my server address.

onto the second part of the wiki

Map HDA Apps Option 1 (Web Forwards Tunneled Web)

* Login as administrator
* Select Web Forwards (middle left menu)
* Select Create Web Forward
* Select Tunneled Web and select Next
* Enter Application Name and Description.
* Check Add to Favorites and select Next
* Enter http://application (i.e. HDA, Opendb, etc) for Destination URL and select Next. Applications that use a port other than 80, you need to specify that as part of the URL, for example http://application:8069
* Select Everyone, select Add, and select Next
* Select Finish and select Exit Wizard
* Keep in mind not all HDA apps will work outside your network
* This method makes use of Adito Agent (java web agent)
* Each time the agent is executed, the SSL tunnel uses a random port (may not work with firewalled client network)

do i have to do this to get adito working so i can download files or is this just to get web apps working? i.e. do i need to add http://adito into the application field? sorry if this is a dumb quest but i am confused on all this! :oops:

i think i know have it working.. if i type it wont load, if i use it works :) Why does adding the port make it work? is it worth adding a line to the wiki about the port might need adding to make it work?

i just need to sort out the certificate issue now :)

You might have your ports switched in your router forwarding. This is specific to your system as I have mine set up according to the wiki and it works fine.
