I used Duck DNS to provide a static IP address and forwarded my 2 ports to the new Duck DNS domain. Check in canyouseeme.org and everything was working. Duck DNS created 2 pem files, “fullchain.pem” and “privkey.pem” in my “ssl” folder on the home assistant os. Per the instructions, you put the following lines in you configuration.yaml file and then you access HA using the
https:// prefix instead of just
http: base_url: [my_domain].duckdns.org ssl_certificate: /ssl/fullchain.pem ssl_key: /ssl/privkey.pem
I check the configuration and receive a “Configuration Valid” result. When I reboot the RPi, I cannot access the GUI using either
https:\\ [IP Address of my RPi] or
http:\\ [IP Address of my RPi]. I can ping the RPi and open the configuration.yaml file to comment out the new code but no GUI. Once I have commented out the new code, everything works again.
What am I doing wrong?
Working now. Not sure what I did differently but I may have been forgetting to append :8123 to
Got it working on my phone over the cell network as well.
Thanks everyone for helping a noob! Once I get more proficient I hope to be able to help others as well. What a great community this is!
