Trying to redirect causes a 401 forbidden error

On the redirects page, when I click redirect all traffic from to http://some.ip.address/something it flat out fails and says
You don’t have permission to access /panel/indexpl.php on this server.
But when redirecting it to any other link it works fine.
How do i fix this? Thanks.


without the exact example it is difficult to answer
but I think the problem is because you use IP

The website here has no unique IP
there are actually thousands of websites inside of one IP (virtual servers)

Besides, the path is important
so you do not end up where you do not have authority

Well it’s the public ip of my home server.

I’m not entirely sure, but I suspect there is some kind of security check on the redirection targets. Either it blocks IP addresses entirely (because naked IP addresses often point to malicious and/or hacked servers) or it checks them against some kind of blocklist.

In either case, it might be a good idea to point a domain name to your home IP address and use that instead.
