DNS-o-matic / DDNS stops working as soon as CDN is enabled - any suggestions?


I’m using DNS-o-matic with Cloudflare to sync my dynamic IP with my domain name. Everything is configured according to this guide:

Everything works great, but as soon as I enable the CDN (orange cloud) I can’t seem to reach my server anymore. It just stops responding; can’t ping it, can’t connect via any services RDP, HTTP or access my Emby server.

Any suggestions?


This is expected behaviour, when you switch to orange cloud, the IP is
replaced with IPs of Cloudflare’s service, Cloudflare will then proxy
HTTP and HTTPS traffic. Other services are not supported, therefore you
will need to connect to your IP directly or another hostname that points
to your IP.
