Acme , dns challange behind a proxy


Has anyone setup traefik behind a proxy and got the certificates via acme successfully ?

I have tried acme with DNS challenge , but for some reason the k8s pod of traefik can't access the internet via the proxy
even though i had setup the proxy Environment variables correctly inside the pod

more info about my setup
I am running k8s on an EC2 AWS machine , that acts as Master and Worker node and the traefik is setup on that machine , and i block any access to/from the internet directly , and enable access only via the proxy , which I have setup using another EC2 instance , running Ubuntu and tinyproxy on top of it

saw this issue , yet i don't see how anyone has solved it
