Dear Zen users,
I am trying to setup my second home PC as dedicated Super Node.
However, I run into difficulties. I bough a domain, linked the A record to the IP4 and the AAAA record to my IP6 address, however when attempting to get a certificate, it fails.
Everything works until Part 6, step 2 of the Super Node setup guide.
When I enter the command
sudo certbot certonly -n --agree-tos --register-unsafely-without-email --standalone -d $FQDN
I get the following error
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator standalone, Installer None Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for zennode.nl Waiting for verification... Cleaning up challenges Failed authorization procedure. zennode.nl (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:dns :: No valid IP addresses found for zennode.nl IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: zennode.nl Type: None Detail: No valid IP addresses found for zennode.nl
I have no idea how to get past this error. However, I did notice something strange that might be related to the problem. IP4 ping works (
ping -c 3 www.zennode.nl -4), however IP6 ping (
ping -c 3 www.zennode.nl -6), only works when I run it from any other computer.
IP4 lookup for the domain zennode.nl works, IP6 lookup for the domain also works.
Did anyone else get this or a similar error?
To me it seems the manual is written for users that use a hosting provider, and as such already have a domain. If you want to use your own computer the manual is a bit bare bone. For example, it impossible to run many of the commands without using sudo rights. Therefore, installing everything with a user that has sudo rights appears to be the only way. Of course I will revoke the sudo right directly after finishing the installation procedure.
