Hi IPFS community.
I’m running an IPFS node in a container behind a Cloudflare Argo tunnel. I’m using a Caddy server to as a reverse proxy to add authentication to the webUI and to expose port 5001 (

/gateway), and 4001 (
/p2p) to the internet through my tunnel so I don’t have to mess with a bunch of firewall and network settings on my machine.
My node currently is fully functional and I’m able to access my Gateway just fine. I also can see that I have plenty of peers I am connected to via outbound connections. However, because I don’t expose any ports directly to the internet, I have no inbound peers.
