i am struggling for hours with getting lets encrypt run in my little cloud environment.
I have 2 machines:
- One Ubuntu Box (which is my certificate server and manages all certificates for the cloud)
- One Windows Server which is running IIS 8.5
Since I don’t want my windows server to deal with the certification process and process everything on my ubuntu box I have configured forwards in IIS on the acme-challenge path to redirect to my ubuntu box.
The ubuntu box is running nginx is able to handle certification requests for it’s own domain names e.g.
letsencrypt certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/var/www/html -d wp.teleclinic.com
but when I call it with any of the configured domain names pointing to the windows server e.g.
letsencrypt certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/var/www/html -d wp.teleclinic.com -d webmail.teleclinic.com
The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Could not connect to 126.96.36.199,
Detail: Could not connect to 188.8.131.52
Any ideas what can cause this?
The redirect works in the browser as it should.
I also checked that all files get generated in the acme-challenge folder on by Ubuntu box.
If you want to try it out, here an example request:
I would really appreciate any help or suggestion that can lead to a solution.
