Mozilla Webthings Gateway Docker: Secure Connection Failed

Hello I am attempting to run my Mozilla IoT gateway from docker container on windows 10. I am able to run the project on docker and connect to my gateway web UI locally using the my local IP address and the designated port, but when I try to go to the remote access domain (**** I get a secure connection failed. I understand that this is likely an issue with the secure tunneling, but I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for working around this issue. Remote access to my gateway is a important feature to me!

Thanks in advance!

Is it possible that your Windows machine or something else on your network is blocking the outbound connection to That is required for the tunneling to work.

@ mrstegman … This is entirely possible and I think it is likely what the issue is. What I do not know how to do is to fix this issue. Do you have any advice for how I could confirm that this is the issue that I am having or how to fix it?

Thanks! - Mitch

Try this from inside your Docker container, if possible.

This should print out 400.

$ curl -s -o /dev/null -w '%{http_code}\n'

This should print out 200.

$ curl -s -o /dev/null -w '%{http_code}\n'

Both of those returned correctly:

Little update … After I sent those commands I checked and was able to access the remote gateway web UI.

Unfortunately I am now experiencing intermittent outages with the web UI. Occasionally the UI will go gray and say that gateway is unreachable, but I am able to reach the local web UI using IP address. Is a static IP necessary to host a gateway?

No, you don’t need a static IP. Is your internet connection unreliable? It has to be able to maintain a constant tunnel to our AWS server.

I am now able to maintain a consistent tunnel to the Mozilla AWS servers. I created a Linux RedHat 7 VM and ran the gateway on that machine. Thank you for your help on this.
