When I have a service defined in Consul and I'm using the ConsulCatalog provider, I cannot seem to override the port.
If Consul has the port number as 38729, and I have the following tag set on the service:
- Traefik still "sees" the 38729 port
I can confirm I can change things about the loadbalancer by adding the following tag:
- And it has the expected result of changing it to use "https" when routing to the service.

That second thread seems to indicate Traefik will not override the port, even when the tag is set. I would like to be able to override the port that Traefik routes to.
The other aspect is that if Consul doesn't have a port number specified for a service, I still can't override that via tags. Defining that "....loadbalancer.port=9995" tag results in a port value of "0" showing up in Traefik.
The use case this would support is:
- Have Traefik instances listening on 443, routing via TLS to other Traefik instances listening on a consistent port such as 9995, and those will route only to locally-hosted services. This way I can have edge routers that route to traefik instances that route to services, and all traffic is encrypted, and I can minimize firewall exceptions.
