Another little tidbit on the D-Link DI-514 wireless access point (in the interest of saving other people the time I just wasted): if you’re away from home, trying to access the remote administration site of your AP, and being turned away with the oh-so-cheerful 401 The web site is blocked by administrator, the problem is that you’re typing the hostname of your AP into the address bar of your browser. Try typing the IP address in, instead, and you’ll be all good.

What a dumb little bug!


how do you get it to work in the first place?

I have the internal problem, but not the external one.

Hosts on the internet can see all my Apache Name Based Virtual hosts perfectly, but on the LAN I cannot see any of them. If I type in the IP Address of the server then I get the default web page from the server, but this is useless to me. I need name based virtual hosts to work on the LAN aswell as from the internet.
