Unable to commit files to Gitea instance running on a Docker container

We have an instance of Gitea running on a Docker container within our cluster of services running on a CentOS 7 VM using Hyper-V on a Windows 10 Laptop. This Gitea server is listening on port 8443 on the Docker network (internally) and port 11002 (externally) which can be connected to via :11002 which is mapped to 8443 by the Docker Compose file, from my Windows box or any other box on my physical network.

I am able to connect to the repo and pull the repo down just fine, so the port forwarding is working correctly. Whenever I try to commit a file to :11002/.git, which is, I get the attached pre-receive hook declined error message with a dial tcp message. The here is my global public IP address. How does this know about my global public IP and why is it trying to connect to :8443?

I’ve talked to the Gitea Admin and he said they do not have any pre-receive hooks defined.

The funny thing is, if I connect my laptop via WiFi to a mobile hotspot, everything works great! Why am I getting this error when I plugged into ethernet only?

I’ve looked at all the gitea logs and container logs and I’m not seeing anything stick out other than…

but I eventually get an OK 200.

Gitea uses git hooks internally to trigger events. This is happenening because gitea can’t validate the cert for localhost, you’ll need to use LOCAL_ROOT_URL setting and point to plaintext http port inside the container. More details here https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/config-cheat-sheet/#server-server

I added LOCAL_ROOT_URL = http://localhost:8443/ and I’m still seeing same error.
