Hey Everyone,

we installed a Proxy (Apache) for our Bitwarden_rs installation, so we could redirect http to https. Which is working just fine.
The Proxy is listening on Port 80 and 443 and redirects the traffic to port 5443 (which is disabled in the firwall of the Host). I start the Bitwarden-Server using Docker-Compose setting ROCKET_PORT to 443 and the following Port Configuration:


Bitwarden is working totally fine when opening it via “” and “”, with the http Version redirecting to https. If i however try to reach “http://IP:5443” it will connect me with an unsecure http connection, even though, that all Incoming Traffic to Port 5443 is set to be dropped on the Host.

Also the Proxy and Docker/Bitwarden are running on the same Server.
