Hi, I would like to hide my origin server’s IP. On spectrum when I run the dig command it seems to return back with a fake IP. The problem is when I use the Cloudflared tunnel I see my real public IP. How can I hide my real IP?
Side note: Does dig cache outputs? I used the same subdomain changing from Cloudflared tunnel to Spectrum and after I went to Cloudflared and back to Spectrum it still showed the real IP. I tried a new subdomain and it doesn’t show the real IP.
That would be ideal, but for some use cases I want to make services public but I’m hesitating when the server that will host most of these services will be my server which has the same network as me therefore sharing my IP.
Sorry, could you elaborate more on that? Do you mean that the IP will still be exposed but when someone tries to DDoS / find my address etc does Cloudflare try to prevent that? What I’m really after is privacy and security.
Just a quick note, I think that the IP is being is being properly hidden, two of the IPs that show were very similar to my public IP so I thought it was my real IP, but after further inspection they are Cloudflare’s IPs.
So, I think it’s being hidden.
