Hi Will,

Hilarious. It's always after you hit 'enter' when sending emails to distro 
lists that you realize what you should have done. (I did what you mentioned 
below moments after sending out the email to the list.)

None the less, I wanted to say THANK YOU for responding. Hopefully, it will 
help others out there.

Have a great day,

Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] ipa-server-install + NATTED interface question


                I had this issue as well.
It would be good to add a `curl icanhazip.com` check to the script to allow for 
1:1 nat in places like AWS.
I successfully worked around the issue by allocating the external IP to an 
internal sub interface during the install:
so run:
ifconfig eth0:0 netmask up 
then try the install again.


Kind regards,

Will Sheldon

Hi all; avid user of both FreeIPA and IPA for a few years now. I have a unique 
situation that I hope someone can provide some insight, or help with. I am 
presented a private, and public (floating) IP after RX a VM from my IaaS 
provider. The 'public' IP is NATted, and not visible from w/in the VM, but is 
reachable outside of the VM.

In other words, if you were to do an 'ip a': eth0 would return the private IP. (private) (public)

Because the installer only sees the address, it bombs saying that I 
can't use that public IP (being obfuscated by NAT). So, my question is: if I 
have to use the private IP for installs, what configs should I edit to make 
Apache/TC respond to the public IP as requests come into it?

I have already modified the conf/server.xml file, and added an 'address' 
filed/property.Apache might need some mods, I headed over to the httpd.conf 
file and didn't see anything out of the ordinary (except there are 0 
VirtualServer entries..)
