    Accessing Custom Pages

    I have created a couple of custom pages and I have added them to the web setup area in Homeseer and the pages show up in the list of pages at the top of all the web pages. The problem is when I access HS from another computer all the normal HS pages are listed as http//:XX.XX.XXX.XX:8080:elog, but the pages I have added to HS are listed as http//:localhost:8080/audio.asp.
    So I am unable to access these pages from say my computer at work. Any idea how I can fix this?
    Thanks.

    You have one your :'s misplaced.

    Change it to:
    http://your.hs.computer.ip_address:8080:elog

    If you have a LAN firewall/router, then you need to forward port 8080 to your homeseer computer so you can remotely access it.

    From home it would be (without consideration for any firewall / router):
    http://localhost:8080/audio.asp

      I shouldn't have put the : infront of localhost, it isn't there in my listings. It just is at home all the pages have "localhost" in front of them but when I try to access HS from a remote computer over the internet (either on home LAN or from work) all the normal HS pages change to the IP address plus the name but the pages that I added via the HS web set up page don't. They stay as localhost:8080/audio.asp. Sorry for mistyping it the first time, and again thanks for any help.

        Try adding only the asp page like: audio.asp.
        It should prepend you ipaddress to the page.

          Yes, now I understand. Don't hard code the base address in your links. Just use the relative address (meaning relative to your homeseer's html directory).

          For example, for any file directly in the html directory, just refer to it by "/anyfile.asp" (the leading slash is helpful in certain cases).

          If you have a subdirectory in the html directory and you wish to access those as well, refer to them as "/your_sub_directory_name_here/anyfile.asp"

          Thanks Rupp for reading the question better than I did.

            That did the trick.

            Again thanks for the help.
