CWP and cloudflare zerotrust
« on: December 11, 2023, 11:59:50 PM »
Hi all.

Has anyone ever tried to make the CWP work with Cloudflare zero-trust so that for home-lab users like me, we can have all of the domains/emails work using the Cloudflare IP address?  Any advice and pointer is greatly appreciated.  Many thanks.

When you get into the Self hosted and NAT areas, things get real tricky.
Most of these features where never designed for that, one of the things needed is rDNS.

I used to try to self-host but it turned into a fool's errand as it was far better to pay the ~$50-80/mo for colo space vs. trying to beef up a residential or small biz connection, get a static IP, get rDNS, fight against port blockages (80, 443, 25), pay for a queuing mail server, pay for a decent UPS battery backup, buy a decent router, etc. I mean, it was a great learning experience, but I will never go back to that!

Thank you all and I agree.  The question is asked for the homelabs for personal use.  This is why I'm going through the hassle.
