Logging in remote from work

I think the work proxy may be stopping me from logging in to home. I have SSL set up and have no troubles accessing from remote locations and devices. The strange thing is I can get to the login screen and put in my login and password but then I get “Unable to connect to Home Assistant.” “Retry”.

This makes em think it might be a home router problem.

If its only ever a problem from work then I would suggest speaking to your works networks department.

My work has a pretty locked down network and could never access my instance using duckdns and SSL but now i’m on HA Cloud via Nabu Casa there isn’t any issue at all.

There are 2 main reasons why this won’t work

Domain and/or ip blocking. This probably can’t be resolved unless you have a friend in IT

Port blocking. If you use port 8123 then this is most likely blocked. I circumvent this by using port 443 to access HA. This port will never be blocked unless internet access is prohibited at all.
