Firewall blocking mail server webmail
I have a mail server behind a pfSense firewall. I have port 8100 open to allow access to the SSL cert protected application. I have pointed the domain name to the mail server in DNS. I should get the WebMail page when I put in, as an example, https://acme.com:8100. Here are my NAT and Rule entries:
WAN TCP * * xxx.xxx.49.33 8100 192.168.31.35 8100
IPv4 TCP * * 192.168.31.35 8100 * none
Is there something else I need to do, so that the name will resolve to the correct location? When I put in the https:://acme.com:8100, I get "Site cannot be reached ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT.
I can connect if I do the https://xxx.xxx.49.33:8100, but it gives me the certificate not safe screen, since the certificate is for acme.com. I have a person on the server who needs things kept simple.

Based on your explanation, there is a problem with the DNS configuration.
Make sure that you can resolve the name into the expected IP address first.
Thanks. Did a nslookup from where I was working and realized the DNS return was incorrect. It had not updated since the change. Went to a station outside my network, and the IP was correct.
