Hello Everyone! I am by no means a networking expert, and I am hoping you all can help me find a safe and secure way to do what I used to do insecurely. I should mention I have the Firewalla Gold.
I have my own file server, plex server, and couple other services running at home that in a perfect world I would like to be able to access outside my home without using the VPN Server or opening any ports.
I have seen the DDNS feature that firewalla offers, and the feature post says it can be utilized to securely run services from home but unfortunately doesn't offer any explanation on how it can be done; other than you need to create a record with your domain service. I have my own domain with Gandi, and creating a CNAME or ALIAS card is no big issue for me, where I am confused is on the routing end? What happens when a web browser or service is directed to my router, through the domain and DDNS. I have a virtual server running docker and Nginx proxy manager for directing traffic but I am not sure if that is way to go about it.
If anyone can offer any insight to hosting services securely using Firewalla it would be much appreciated.
