I have a Ubuntu web server that uses
iptables PREROUTING to forward port
So the web process listens on port
8000. Now I want to make a curl from the same server to a web application running on it. But this issues a Connection refused:
$ curl http://my.webite.com/on/same/server curl: (7) Failed connect to my.webite.com:80; Connection refused
curl-ing on port
8000 works (but it must work on port 80).
I also made sure that that web server listens on all interfaces (not only on the physical one):
$ netstat -ntl | grep LISTEN ... tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:8000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN ...
The domain of my app (
my.webite.com) also resolves to the physical interface IP.
Why do I get the Connection refused?
