Local Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP server with need for Dyn DNS in restricted country

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I would like to set up a local webserver on a VM that is accessible through a public URL while sitting behind airvpn.


Here is what I have got:


  • QNAP NAS with Ubuntu 16.04 Server VM up and running (LAMP Server)
  • PFSENSE Router that holds the openvpn connection to airvpn for all devices passing through the router
  • Dnamic URL through https://www.dynu.com resolving to airvpn IP


NOTE: I live in a restricted country where domains such as those of VPN providers are blocked (so I can't easily portforward and create a dynamic URL with a airvpn TLD..


QUESTION: is there a way I can have this setup work (and if so, how)?

mydomain.com => AIRVPN => PFSENSE => VM 

(https and https, possibly also S/FTP and SSH)


Most guides speak about the port forwarding with a URL that contains the airvpn domain name. I can't use that as mentioned above...

Thanks for your support, I'll probably still need to setup the firewall rules on pfsense but that's the easier part I believe...
