Monocle gateway on unraid along with SWAG(letsencrypt) reverse proxy
My knowledge of network configuration is limited (at best), so the answer may be obvious to some people. I’m running swag and the gateway as docker containers on unraid. Port 443 on my public IP is pointed to the swag container as the reverse proxy for other docker containers on unraid. Is there a way to run the gateway either behind swag or using another port mapped to 443 in the gateway container? My searches here appear to indicate 443 of my public IP has to point to the gateway.

@krh1009 If your cameras are all inside your private Network the no port 443 does not need to be public facing. I do not expose port 443 to the Internet in my personal setup. Monocle Gateway does need to host its services on port 443 but this can be on an internal private network address. The only catch is that Monocle must sent a valid public DNS host name to your Alexa devices when you request a camera stream. When using Monocle Gateway with an internal private IP address we create a custom DNS host name that points to your private IP address. Some routers will not resolve public DNS records to internal private IP addresses by default. Search for DNS REBIND and your router model to see if/how you need to configure it to allow these DNS host names to resolve properly.
