CNAME Cloudflare Proxy Settings

  • smart POINTS TO

A Cloudflare customer manages their DNS via the Cloudflare Dashboard.  

They create the CNAME using this interface:

The CNAME interface above allows a customer to toggle the Cloudflare proxy on or off.  The Opensense CNAME should have the proxy setting OFF.  

The Cloudflare Proxy Toggle can be ORANGE (ON - incorrect setting) or GREY (OFF - correct setting) for Opensense CNAME.
