Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

I have added the DNS TXT entries (2 so far) and they both fail, assuming a lookup of DNS timing proliferation perhaps?
Is there a way to bury the (:1987) bit behind this in the configs so your software cert process actually reaches the right server behind the webproxy? This will solve this for sure.
