Ultimately my issue isn’t directly Traefik-related but I’m looking for a bit of a help with what’s the best and most secure way to workaround it with Traefik.
I’ve installed two IRC bouncers (ZNC and Quassel-Core) and I have no issues connecting to either using their local addresses but it’s impossible to connect via my domain. From what I can see, my IRC client (I’ve tested Quassel-Client with Core and Quassel standalone with ZNC) refuses to attempt a connection over 80/443. I haven’t tested any other clients and I’m not opposed to trying others but I’d like to see if there’s a way around this issue. So far the only solution that has worked has been to forward the relevant port on my router and I get the feeling that this is the only solution or does someone else have a suggestion? If port forwarding is the only option, should I configure Traefik to listen for that port - is that a more secure way of handling things or does it matter?
I also have the same issue with MQTT. For the time being, I can get away with just using local addresses for MQTT as all my devices are on my home network but I’m interested in potentially testing out connecting devices from another location.
