CF Load Balancing

We are looking to use CF Load Balancing for two VPS origin servers hosted in two different companies, I have problems right now with the health checks not working if the site goes down CF does not say they are down but they clearly are down.

My question is if they use the same health check to see uptime how will load balancing work if the health checks don’t even work correctly.

And not the network issue like firewall blocking some ports, or Cloudflare IPs not allowed?

It could be the firewall blocking ports yes I will have to look into that thank you

May I suggest below articles to kindly re-check if Cloudflare is allowed to connect to your origin host to as follows in the below article:

Nevertheless, Cloudflare IP addresses list can be found here:

And also may I ask if the Health Checks are set to look over TCP port or HTTP(S) url (inc. ort 80/443)?

If HTTPS, it might be something with the SSL certificate + selected SSL/TLS option at the SSL/TLS tab of Cloudflare dashboard.
