NAT support in KeyHelp

Post by shoulders »

KeyHelp does not have native NAT support so if you are running your webserver behind a NAT you have to manaully alter files which can be overridden after an update.

A lot of people want to run their own webservers from home, and here in the UK everyone is behind a NAT and only has IPv4.

I had a discussion about this feature to make sure I was not missing a setting

Cannot use KeyHelp behind a NAT
viewtopic.php?p=45064

One of my solutions was the ability to add a custom IP option to: Settings --> Configuration --> IP Addresses - This could be then used to build all configs as normal and this IP would not be present on the NIC.

Honestly: I don't see the need.

Apart from the fact, that running a Webserver from home behind a (IPv4)NAT makes no sense at all...

You can simply tunnel your traffic around the NAT using a VPS and Wireguard with a public ip.

Regarding IPv6 ... well, use a Tunnelbroker or so.
