Cloudflare Tunnels on Cox

Switching from Windstream to Cox Fiber 2gb. I use cloudflare tunnels on my home lab server. This works fine over my Windstream connection. Nothing to configure on the router. When I plug the server into my Cox router, I'm only able to access it over local IP. Can't access it from the internet like I can over Windstream. I've tried rebuilding the Cloudeflare Tunnel and reinstalling cloudflared on my ProxMox sever with no luck. Anyone else doing this, and may have some tips? TIA.

  • What does your liaison for Cox Business advise you to do? Don't they offer you B2B support line?

        I'd recommend that you review your Terms of Service which you agreed when you signed up with your salesperson.

  • You should receive a free equipment upgrade within 3 years if you're renting. And security is handled on the Cox side. No worries of router updates or DDoS attacks. Also they're blocking common inbound ports as a courtesy so even if you can't secure your homelab they can't be smurfed. 🤭
