Would anyone be interested in this?
I'm thinking of starting a service to help peeps with NAT IP servers, so if they want HTTPS but do not want to use CloudFlare for his nameserver, I could set up a reverse proxy to help them attain that. Let's Encrypt would come in well for the situation, but provided they trust me enough haha, which I hope peeps would, since I'm not going anywhere soon anyway.
I suggested this as an alternative to CF, for the following reason:
CloudFlare is only a web reverse proxy and currently doesn't support websockets (on free plans) too, which is why I proposed this, too, as I had to disable CF when I wanted to run my own Wekan instance.
For example, if I host a Git server, and my port ranges are 12300-12321, where 12321 is the SSH port for Git, I could use this server to act as a transparent proxy (maybe with this?).
This way, I can have HTTPS reachable on 443, and SSH clone/pull/push option available on other ports, since CloudFlare does not have support for passing traffic on custom ports.
I'll be happy to have such a service going on, take it as doing some good to those who want HTTPS.
Of course, manual approval but automated setup, since some peeps might abuse it.
How does this sound?
If you have the time - do leave some reasons on why (not) - I would like to better understand what y'all think!
I see, sure. Thanks alot for the honest opinion.
