Can't access local web page from hosted Joomla site.

Post by MRKrupp » Fri May 24, 2019 5:10 pm

Hello,

I have a Joomla site on a hosted server and it works great.

On my home machine I have IIS running and am hosting a basic "Hello World" page. I can access the page from the internet (when I'm outside my home) and locally as well.

I can create a link in a Joomla article to the page and it opens fine.

If I put the link inside of an iframe in an article it can't find the page.

Iframes that point to other sites work fine.

This is only a problem in MS Edge, not Firefox.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

SOLVED: I had to add the external Joomla site to the Trusted Sites in Control Panel -> Internet Properties -> Security.

Does your home machine have a proper domain name or do you use just an IP address to connect to the website?
