Good day, So I have a Synology NAS hosting a Homer container on port 3030.
Using pfSense DNS resolver, I am accessing homer as http://homer.domian.local
I want to access homer (and other local applications) with an SSL certificate.

In psSense I created root and intermediate CA, imported those to my test VMs, and added server certs as custom in NPM hosted on a PI. It works for all apps hosted in PI or other Linux servers, except for Synology's hosted containers or plex app.

For some reason, Synology is conflicting with ports 80 and 443.
I tried to use embedded Synology reverse proxy but it ends up erroring: "Synology, Sorry, the page you are looking for is not found."

Is there a way to redirect Synology's ports 80 and 443 to 3030 internally, without causing conflict with other services that Synology runs by default on those ports?

I gave up trying, and ended up moving all my containers away from Synology to a Pi. When it comes to dealing with ports 80 and 443, Synology sucks. And using this

to free those ports, is not an option as it will break other cool features in DSM such as Synology Drive Server and Active Backup for Business

Officially synology's nginx (reverse proxy) uses port 80/443 and those are reserved.

Trying to free them is not recommended and the update will reset that and you are at the mercy of Synology that can change any element at any point.

Using any other reverse proxy would be recommended and you can in facet host it on the NAS on custom ports, while pushing 443 traffic from your router to that custom reverse proxy (on custom, non-443/80 ports).

Basically what you did by moving that task on a separate device.

This is how I have it configured on the NAS, bypassing the built-in default ports and still getting 443 access for all services.
