I’ve just installed YaCy on the latest Linux Mint, and I can see my YaCy page on localhost:8090. I’ve opened the port on my router (BBox Proximus), the mint firewall is disabled as it is by default, and I’m crawling the web as I speak. It’s says I’m running in senior mode. So everything seems to be fine in terms of connectivity, except I cannot a access YaCy through my public IP.
’200 (OK)’ responses means it’s all fine as viewed from ‘public’ / Internet
From within the LAN, however, in most cases you must use the LAN address (and actual port) of the computer serving up YaCY . NOT it’s WAN/Internet/Public address, or any redirecting port set at the router/gateway.
And if you are using a domain, dynamic or not, unless you have a DNS server at your gateway/router that is mindful of wheter or not it’s handling requests coming from inside LAN, or somewhere from outside, adding the domain/hostname manually to /etc/hosts (in a Linux scenario), to point to yacy server’s LAN IP, is often easiest
