How to add TLS/SSL letsencrypt or GCP provided certificate to VM instance in GCP with an internal ip address and static external address?
When I create one via a letsencrpt certificate install script, resultant connections break because the VM doesn’t have an external facing ip number –only an internal number.
The traffic passes through a firewall (or load balancer) of sorts.
I’m used to bastionhost VM servers in the wild..
Details: NaviServer web server is running on a GCP Compute Engine with a FreeBSD 11.3 image.
(Linux Shield OSes aren’t letting me compile Naviserver and use it on any port).
All works for port 80 and 8000 on an internal ip address, and a static ip address pointed externally and not connected to the VM.
I can’t find any proxy/firewall settings to navigate via GCP menus.
How to resolve?
Is there some special term I should use to search for docs?
Any link with instructions to follow?
Is there a way to expose a VM instance directly to an external ip address?
Any other creative way I may get SSL/TLS to work with NaviServer?
