Using Cloudflare keeping legacy services on unsupported ports


#1

Hello, I’m totally newbie to Cloudflare, but I’m trying to learn. :slight_smile:

At the moment I have a question or two about unsupported ports. If I have a domain name with some services on that ports, can I enable Cloudflare on this domain keeping the old ports? For example, if my server is listening on port 8143, keep the address listening on domain:8143, disabling that port from Cloudflare protection.

I’ve read a little about page rules and adding DNS records, but not sure if my use case can be achieved through some of these (or if it’s possible).

Thanks in advance for the help, and sorry if my English is not perfect (not my first language).

No. Cloudflare DNS will point your domain to a proxy server that won’t let those connections through.

You could move those connections to a subdomain, but if it’s legacy, you probably don’t have that option. :slightly_frowning_face:
