Access home assistant through NGIX from the Internet

I have recently installed NGINX and with duckdns I can now access the webUI without the 8123 port ( just https on port 443)- whihc is great
I have tried to forward the traffic on my router so I can connect from the Internet, but although this is allowed, HA is sending a reset back ( hence rejecting the connection). I’m a compeent network engineer so I don’t think I’m doing it wrong
I cannot see why HA is doing this, so either:

  • NGINX is blocking non-local traffic
    or -HA is by default restricting access to the local LAN
    I can’t seem to find any documention on either case, can somebody bring some light into this?
