Accessing FileRun locally after registation

Shadow 2 years ago updated by Vlad R 2 years ago 1

After registering FileRun it forces me to connect to it thru my domain over SSL, which is alright as long as the request comes from outside my local network. The redirection to HTTPS is done by an apache reverse proxy prior to the FileRun server.

When working with FileRun inside my local network, I noticed that all trafic is not taking the direct way staying within the network but is rather going around. Now when connecting to the FileRun servers local IP address all I get is "This software application is registered to a different server hostname".

One solution to this would be to disable the redirection to SSL thru the reverseproxy as the router could then keep the traffic within the network, but that I don't want to do as I still want to force people to use SSL over the Internet.

So my question is if there is a way to make the server accessible over the local network without using the registered domain?

Only by editing your computer's hosts file and pointing the domain name to the local IP, or by having a custom DNS server that does the same for all computers on the local network. The only other option is to unregister the installation (delete "system/data/filerun.dat").
