Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I use cloudflare for my website and we have a gameserver I was wondering if it is possible to route traffic through cloudflare.

This recently sprung into my head when I realized that I could route Shoutcast through another of cloudflares port (8080) which does not do any performance enhancing or anything it just acts as a reverse proxy and stops DDoS.

I then tried by setting up a subdomain with my gameserver IP cloudflared and then pinged the IP and Port. It seems to have connections but when actually connecting via the game it doesnt.

Any ideas?

Do you actually get DDoS attacks on your server? –  ZippyV Sep 2 '12 at 11:47

1 Answer 1

Cloudflare mitigates DDoS attacks by performing distributed caching.

One does not simply cache a gameserver.
