Unknown Device (trying to port forward proxmox)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am trying to port forward my proxmox server (192.168.1.2) and its showing as unknown. The other IPs are my VMs on the proxmox server. For some reason only one vm has a name. I cannot port forward devices with an unknown device so my question is "How do you name a device". I am using an arris gateway btw. Thank you very much for the help. 

 

Background:

On proxmox I created 3 VMs and I configed static local ip for each of them and the proxmox server. I also changed nameservers to be cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1

192.168.1.2 is Proxmox (hostname is serverduy.com; I did not buy this domain)

192.168.1.3 is VM named 3d4hmc (hostname is 3d4hmc.com; paid for domain)

192.168.1.4 is VM named nxuron (hostname is nxuron.ml; free claimed domain)

192.168.1.5 is a VM named punkmeister (hostname is punkmeister.net; paid for domain)

I realized nxuron and 3d4hmc were on the same ip (192.168.1.3), so I changed nxuron to 192.168.1.4 and nxuron's name does not appear anymore.

Why not? I have an att router and port forward unknown devices all the times, with no issue.

 

 

Also what are you portfordwarding? You probably don't want to expose your hypervisor. Make a vpn, and port forward thath.

When ever I try to port forward an unknown device it gives me "A required setting is empty".

Why do you want to port forward your Proxmox server? Are you looking to SSH in or do you want access to the WebUI?

 

As for unknown devices that's a constant issue I've dealt with but it has never stopped me from forwarding ports to a private IP. Have you port forwarded before? Are you sure you're on the correct menu?

I am looking to access the WebUI so I can monitor all the servers and easily ssh into each of them without having to use putty for each one of them. And yes I have port forwarded before; I deleted all the custom applications since it was too messy.

Also it is not the unknown device issue since I can port forward other unknown VMs. I think it may be proxmox's firewall, but I am checking that right now.

also hey its you again.

As Electronics Wizardy stated you really don't want to Port Forward the WebUI of the server. It's a non-encrypted service and only a password stops anyone else or a bot from logging into the server. Instead of forwarding port 8006 what I would do is setup an independent machine or setup a dedicated VM with TeamViewer or AnyDesk then bridge it to your home network. This will enable you to control the server over a secure connection and it doesn't require opening any ports either.

 

I don't think it's a firewall issue I think it's a forwarding issue.

 

And yeah it's me again. :D I'm on here daily.
