Socket forwarding on digitalocean apps

I have a cardano-node setup using the dockerfile option in digitalocean apps.

The cardano node doesn’t expose an HTTP endpoint so my only method of communicating with the node at this time is to forward sockets.

Is it at all possible to do this with apps platform?

Hey there!

In App Platform only HTTPS on port 443 is supported for inbound communication so it would be necessary to proxy that to your app. Socket forwarding wouldn’t work but you could setup nginx as a reverse proxy in your Dockerfile or possibly look at using websockets if it meets your needs. Ogmios
