The web application and HTTP API of Diafaan SMS Server only uses one IP port, by default 9710. If you cannot access it from the Internet it is very likely that the port is still blocked by a firewall or that the IP- and port number are not forwarded properly by the NAT server.

I think it is best to try it with an HTTP API call, these are simple HTTP queries that makes it easy to test it from a browser. You could use the server status query (make sure this call works on the local host first):

Hello Henk,

I tried to open the Diafaan Server to the internet. This is a client requirement. I opened the port 9710 and the server IP as the DMZ. However, I could not open the Diafaan browser from the internet. I tried the other services which is enabled to be accessed by the internet and they work. What do you think is the problem? Do I have to use other ports for Diafaan?

Hello Emman,

The web application in Diafaan SMS Server was designed for use in a local network inside a company. It is certainly possible to use it over the Internet when the server and IP port are open to the outside. However, there might be security or capacity issues when you open the web application in Diafaan SMS Server to customers over the Internet.

Regards, Henk

I am planning to open the port of the SMS Server so authorized users can access the built in web browser application even it they are outside of the premises. Is this possible? Will they still be able to send messages?

thanks and regards
emman
