Website not loading through 8080 and 8081 port

Just started using Cloudflare, site and all features we’re working before switching over.
After the switch my website world load via https:// DOMAIN.ca/ which is great but my mail client at https:// cp.DOMAIN.ca:8080 and my server control panel at https:// cp.DOMAIN.ca:8080 won’t seem to load at all. im not sure what to do?
I ran openssl s_client -connect cp.DOMAIN.ca:8080
which showed that the SSL handshake was successful, and the certificate is valid. The server is using the Let’s Encrypt certificate for the domain cp.DOMAIN.ca, and the SSL handshake completed without errors.

Ports 8080 is HTTP. Not HTTPs. And Cloudflare does not support Port 8081:

Thanks for the feedback, I’ve never used Cloudflare before and figured it would be rather simple to use with my server. I’m using ISPConfig for a control panel and by default it uses port 8080 for the CP and 8081 for mail client.

You can just set up subdomains cp.example.com and mail.example.com (assuming this is a webmail interface) and then use origin rules to set Cloudflare to connect to your origin on ports 8080 and 8081.
