Use Traefik with subdomains on LAN?

Hi all,

I'm having some trouble getting URL instead of subdomain proxying working but I'm having some difficulties. While that's being resolved, I'm looking into using subdomains on LAN with Traefik. I have a domain name, I just can't figure out how to get Traefik with subdomains (and letsencrypt but that's secondary) to work on LAN. Is there a way to do this without making a fake domain name in /etc/hosts for every client on the LAN?

Thanks all


  1. Install a DNS Server, or
  2. Use mDNS instead.

That's an entirely different jungle of band-aids and duct tape to get working.

IMO, the only way to make it work with LE, is the DNS challenge.
