Greetings fellas. I’m running a forum using cloud flare premium. Our first attempt @ the forum we used apache2 which we believed leaked our back end server due to the way it talks with CF. We’ve now switched to NGINX and believe it’s configured properly. Doing a simple IOT search using censys.io our back end appears. Now, I’m almost absolutely sure we’ve configured everything properly w/ our VPS provider, registrar & CF.
Can anyone offer any guidance in resolving this issue? We plan to switch the ip address of our server hoping that will stop it from being exposed, what stops it from showing up on an IOT search once again? In the past with other hosting providers I’ve never had any issues with our back end being visible to the public internet. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
