Certbot-auto fails to connect


#1

Tried several times, it asks a couple of questions (email…) then fails with.

Failed authorization procedure. softwareandservices.us (tls-sni-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Failed to connect to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:443 for TLS-SNI-01 challenge

Yet firefox connects just fine.


#2

could you provide a little more detail please.

What command did you try ?
What’s the domain name ?
Is there any firewall that prevents access to your domain on port 443 ?


#3

That’s the entire error message. Can telnet to that host port 443 from
inside the net and outside.

Command was: ./certbot-auto


#4

FWIW I can’t connect to port 443 on that host right now. Is there something listening on that port at the moment or is this expected?


#5

Thanks. perhaps its some kind of routing problem. I can get to it from some
addresses, and not others.
Out of town today, will have to look into this more tomorrow.

THANKS!
