Back to My Mac & VPN services

For some reason, all of the sudden, Back to my Mac and my VPN server are unreachable for devices behind my router. I had everything working fine for months, could get to just about any computer or printer from my house, now, all of the sudden, I can't reach anything when I'm home. I haven't touched any settings, only firmware updates. Not exactly sure when the problem started to occur, though, so I can't be for certain if a firmware update was the cause. UPnP is turned on and I have the proper ports forwarding to my VPN server.

Re: Back to My Mac & VPN services

That's a good suggestion. After deeper investigation, it seems that there were a number of things compounding the problems. 1) For some reason, my iCloud account was not authorizing on ANY of my machines, 4 of them total. Signed out of iCloud and signed back in on all 4 of them. 2) The VPN service on my server wasn't working correctly, rebooted the server.

 

Now everything is working correctly. I should know better, it's always the simple things that are the problem.

Hi jsalda,

 

1. If you bypass the router, will those services works?

2. Try to reset the router and manually reconfigure.
