    That makes sense. I've figured out that my issue with not getting a cert that's signed by Let's Encrypt is likely related to my system not listening on port 80.
    Here's the log that Let's Encrypt generated https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/authz-v3/1823799891
    It looks like it may be possible to tell the API to connect on an alternate port, possibly 9999 https://www.virtualmin.com/node/53385

    Looks to me like they're just using a proxy. Unless you actually control the server already running on port 80, you can't do that. And if you do control the
    server on port 80, then can either change it to a different port temporarily so
    the Synchronet server can run on port 80 or better yet, just create a symlink to your Synchronet web server root dir where the challenge/response for Let's Encrypt will be placed.

    If you don't control the web server running on port 80, I don't know that there
    is any work-around.
