Hi Everyone,

I researched a lot but I couldn't find a proper fix Status: Authorizing issue. I want to use Let's Encrypt at my RT-AX86U and Merlin 386.1 Beta. Can you tell me advise? I turn off Firewall for connection with Let's Encrypt servers. It stuck at Authorizing. I need help. Thanks.

I think the LE integration is broken right now. See also Merlin's post here.

Thank you very much for information @Mutzli It seems playing with LE is just wasting time. Self signed certificate rocks.

Hi @Rafael Viana

Thanks for sharing this solution but this is not proper way to use LE. I already know that solution but auto renew won’t work. After 3 months I should renew manually. This is not I want. I turned off WAN access. And turn on vpn connection and self signed certificate ok for now. I upgraded to beta 3

Hey, I hope you've already found a solution to this. If not, and for anyone else having a problem, have you given your router access to WAN both on 80 and 443, or, do you have a http server on your LAN with ports forwarded to those ports? LetsEncrypt won't authorize unless it finds those ports open with something to connect to. Nevertheless, I wasn't getting my certificate updated by my router. Since I have a webserver on a Raspberry Pi (I run a FreshRSS server for my friends and family) I installed certbot on the pie which does the LetsEncrypt authorizing and updating separately from my router. Was wondering if the update problem had been addressed when I saw this thread.

Bo there is no solution. I use self-signed certificate.

@jackalope50 and @mkaand - Lets Encrypt is working for RT-AX86U under Merlin 386.1_Beta4 and under Latest Asus Stock Version 3.0.0.4.386.41535. I would assume that the other models on b4 will work as well.

Thanks @kernol Where can I found changelog for beta 4? Thanks.

Latest firmware upgrade for AX92u also fixed the letsencrypt stuck on authorizing issue. So it looks like ASUS is starting to roll out the fix.

For now I used the work around as above by @Rafael Viana but the whole port 80 bit, does that mean I need to setup a port forward of 80 to 80 to my routers IP for this to work?
