I have a website on which I'm hosting Citrix NetScaler that is supposed to facilitate external access in my environment.
I have created an A record in my external DNS zone with the router's public IP address and linked it to the website name. Then, I went ahead and created a NAT rule in my router.
The rule is configured to listen on WAN 443 requests and link them to the internal server's IP address. Both the WAN and LAN rules are configured to listen on port 443 since I'm accessing the website via HTTPS.
Now, every time I'm trying to access
https://netscaler.domain.com I get redirected to my router's default IP address, the link looks something like this:
As a troubleshooting step, I have configured the WAN port to something else other than 443 (3443 in this case) and the NAT rule works as expected.
This is a lab environment, and has worked before. I'm guessing port 443 no longer works because something else is using it? If so, can someone recommend some graphical tools that I can use to check what's using this port or otherwise if this is not the case - advise what can be wrong?
PS: I'm using a Windows Server 2012 R2 environment.
The Router is a Huawei B310s-22
