Difficulty Bypassing Cloudflare Security for Server Access

I’m trying to access the origin server IP address for my website behind Cloudflare’s security measures. While I understand the importance of Cloudflare’s protection, I need temporary access for maintenance/troubleshooting purposes.

Is there a secure way to achieve this, or are there alternative solutions within Cloudflare’s tools that might be more suitable?

If you are trying to access your server directly by its own IP address, then that request won’t be going through Cloudflare. Only requests made using proxied DNS records will pass through Cloudflare.

If you can’t access by using your own hostname, then you can check in your security events log why you were blocked and configure the WAF to let you through…
