  1. Hi great vid. I'm just stuck in this loop, which I think is ISP blocking ports as I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong otherwise. Has anybody tried to do something like this in Truenas Scale as I can't seem to get external access to local network to work no matter what I try (including Cloudflare tunnelling).

  2. Can I use this to give my friends access to my server an the dedicated server for games hosted on my server?
    My problem is, that I only have D's lite due to my fiber provider.
    So far, everything I tried, failed…
    Will this work?

  3. Nice.
    I was looking for a solution to this problem about 5 months ago to give my email server a static IP, and also to get around CGNAT for my 4G backup internet, so all my self hosted services have a connection if my main internet goes down.
    I went the route of installing pfsense in linode and then setting up a wireguard tunnel from my local pfsense to the linode pfsense. Been working perfectly for the last 139 days. It's been set and forget. All HA proxy settings are done on my local pfsense.

  4. Which solution is better for routing traffic into your network, Nginx Proxy Manager or this solution. I’m looking at hosting 25 or 30 services on my home network but I have dynamic ip to be concerned with, and my ISP blocks ports 80, 443, and pop3 and imap ports.

  5. Any opensource and selfhosted alternative to ilovepdf that anyone knows of? Need something like that for my organization. Requirements: merging, splitting, rearranging, compressing and watermarking pdfs.

  6. The Lack of IPv6 support makes it unsutable for me. Speeking of which, why dont you make Videos about or using the, in all aspects superior (compared to IPv4), Internet Protocol version 6?

  7. This is a handly application, thanks for sharing!

    Prospective users may need to consider what the bandwidth limitations are for your chosen VPS though. Depending on which app you decide to route through this Gateway, you may end up exceeding the data transfer limits for lower-cost droplets or vps offereings.

  8. I am wondering… What is the difference between this and having just local home-server connected to public VPS through the WireGuard connection and run something like NginxProxyManager on the public facing VPS and proxy the connection?

  9. Hi Brian, thanks for your time to make this video, but this project seems far too much configuration and too complicated in case of a crash! I've tested many solutions: NPM, Wireguard, Printunl,… but the easiest, cheapest and most secure solution is Cloudflare Argo Tunnel. No server required, no open ports, minimal configuration in your homelab (you need a blanc ubuntu server) instead a multi-tiered application firewall in Cloudflare's web dashboard – you have to check it out!
