A record IP address field

What value do I put in the A record address field?

The ifconfig eth0 address (192.168.0.219)
localhost (127.0.0.1)

The messages all said, “I can’t do this.”

You can put either one of those in for an “A” record, but it can’t be set to :orange: because that’s an internal address. Set it to :grey: and it will accept it.

Worked like a charm.
Now, here’s my NSHO: The message is pure geek. It diagnoses but doesn’t offer a solution. A simple “Try the gray cloud thingy.” would have saved hours of debugging.
I know whereof I speak. I’m an oldie-moldy computer programmer who made user-friendly programs.

I have the same problems…Did you try to use VPN?

:wave: @stercor,

“I can’t do this” seems like a terrible error message indeed. It appears Cloudflare listened and now the error says this kind of record cannot be proxied when you ate empty to save it as a proxied record type. Yay!
