Of the back of https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=208215

 

@freitasm - I understand how to do the letsencrypt for the public accessible parts of my network (I've got public accessible site running off home).

 

But for your other internal names where you own the domain, how are you doing the renewals if they're not accessible for verification on the internet?

 

So I have 

 

home.mydomain.com - this is  accessible this points to a machine that I internally call machine.mydomain.com

 

So I manually created a certificate last night for home.mydomain.com and machine.mydomain.com and used the dns verification.  But apprarently for renewal I'll need to do that all over again.

 

 

 

How are others handling it?

freitasm:

 

I used DNS verification.

 

 

 

 

Have you renewed?  Apparently the keys change each time.

Yep, renewed and each time you have to change DNS. The beauty of using the other authentication method is automation but you have the problem of having to forward ports, etc - which I don't like doing on routers and other devices.

Ok.  

 

At least this may make life a little easier in future:
