[SOLVED] Can not login to WebGUI from FQDN, only from IP
I have setup an FQDN and the inlog page is shown OK. However I can not login into the WebGUI.
Strange is that if I look on IP ( which allows me to enter the WebGUI ) in the logging it is showing that login is succesfull?
To test I created an extra account ( admin group ), so I can see in logging that the second account on FQDN URL is shown as succesfully logged in despite the fact I can not pass the login screen. Login pages is re-displayed.
What am I missing here?
Extra info: I only have a WAN port ( no LAN )
What are the settings in System: Advanced: Admin Access ?
In particular "Alternate Hostnames" setting may be of interest.
Alternate Hostnames for DNS Rebinding and HTTP_REFERER Checks
Here you can specify alternate hostnames by which the router may be queried, to bypass the DNS Rebinding Attack checks. Separate hostnames with spaces.
Still no luck.
The correct hostnames is installed, and I tested with all the posibilities from:
DNS Rebind Check
Browser HTTP_REFERER enforcement
But why is it saying in System Logs: I twice for 1 login attempt )
Dude, your browser is fscking you up. Clear the cookies, cache or try from different one (or perhaps from 'anonymous' mode window).
Thanks for the reactions ;D
Indeed it was a browser / cookie porbleem.
However my problem was that it om multiple browsers on multiple computers I had the same problem.
Also I did deleted cookies only from 1 week old, however it seems that I tried more then a week ago. ::)
Never the less, problem solved. :)
I don't think it's just me? The "modern" browsers start to behave in completely idiotic ways when it comes to forms/usernames/passwords/logins:
- offering to save credentials for fields that are not username/password at all
- trying to autofill saved credentials on completely wrong places
- unwantedly filling in complete crap on clicking submit
- various cookies SNAFUs
- now Mozilla has come with a "wonderful" idea to scream about lack of HTTPS on login forms
