I wanted to tunnel a minecraft server cause of how well the http tunneling worked but i quickly came to the realization that to connect to a tcp tunnel you need to have cloudflared installed?? Why is that?
Also the ssh tunneling: i wanted to be able to ssh into my ubuntu machine from anywhere from any device but you need cloudflared set up for this too?? I wanted to be able to access it from my school computers for example where i cant just go and install cloudflared.
Yes, i know of other tunneling services like ngrok but ngrok doesnt have udp (well neither does cf but whatever) and there isnt any static ip/domain to connect my domain to.
I just want to understand why Cloudflare has made tunnels that work so well but made only the http and https tunnels accessible to anyone without cloudflared?
