This group is my last resort as I haven't been able to find my answers elsewhere and I am at a complete loss. So I hope y'all can help!

I have everything set up and it is working flawlessly minus one small hurdle. Let me explain...

I am using a custom domain name and running through Cloudflare. I really, REALLY want to be as secure as possible and I have heard this is the best way.
I have subdomains set up - files.domain.com, I also have them set up in Cloudflare.
I have certificates set up and everything is working perfectly.
Using reverse proxy.

The problem and what is puzzling is this:
I can access files.domain.com on my computer and phone (web browser) while on the network and while off the network (cell).
However, I am unable to use the iOS apps while on the network using the domain and/or subdomain. This is a problem because I switch from my home network to traveling and vice versa and I dont want to have to update the login box every time I come on and off my home network.

I hope this makes sense because I have been pulling my hair out scouring the internet looking for an answer.
 
Solution
Everyone will be glad to know that I got this resolved. It seemed that for some reason the , "under attack mode" in Cloudflare was causing an issue. I was just thinking about it last night and turned it off and EVERYTHING works now.

A big shout out to @Gerard , @Rusty and @fredbert for all your help. I couldn't have done it with out you.

Now everything is back and configured using different port numbers, etc than what was sent in the screenshots and 2FA is turned on. I even looked around a bit in Cloudflare and turned some extra security settings on in there so we should be golden!

Thanks again! I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend.

I always like to add Cloudflare into the mix and be transparent as I can and no how to so that everyone knows the exact set up. It may or may not have anything to do with the situation. I just want to be clear.

I'd say we can update this now to "It may or may not have anything has everything to do with the situation."

Looks like this feature of Cloudflare interjects itself into web requests to perform additional checks. Then the mobile app doesn't know how to handle this and login fails.

Well done for solving the issue.

I am dead! Ha ha! Thanks for helping me about to laugh about the situation. I was literally pulling my hair out and it was right there all along.

I think that the Cloudflare "Under Attack" challenge is a javascript challenge that makes you have to select the right pictures. I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner but .... You live and you learn!
Well done for solving the issue.
Appreciate it. Now, I can start using this thing freely.
