I'm developing an app, and one of the requirements is to connect to a computer with the URL scheme:
The problem, however, is that I can't connect to my Mac remotely.
Let's say my public IP is xx.xxx.xxx.xxx.
I have a Time Capsule setup as my router, and I enabled port forwarding for port
24001, mapping it to my computer's LAN IP, 10.0.1.10 (DHCP reservation).
So, I saved the settings in my Time Capsule, then attempted to connect like so:
That didn't work, so I tried just connecting the following way:
Which game me the Safari can't connect to the server. error.
I double checked the Time Capsule, then made sure my machine's firewall was turned off, and tried again: no luck.
Finally, I ran a Port Scan test in Network Utility, and it wasn't seeing port
24001 as open at all.
So then I tried forwarding the port to a different computer,
10.0.1.100, which showed it as closed also.
What am I doing wrong, exactly?
