Forbidden Request on LetsEncrypt port #221

Hello all!

I've been setting up a big reverse proxy for the past day and I've gotten stuck. Whenever I try and setup SSL I get an error log saying:
{"name":"redbird","hostname":"{host}","pid":11420,"level":30,"msg":"Forbidden request on LetsEncrypt port 3000: E:\\Kenton Vizdos\\Documents\\HOME Router\\proxy\\certs\\{domain}\\.well-known\\acme-challenge\\test-1227b1a1905f45cddb66b45042a74963-0","time":"2019-08-08T21:06:02.246Z","v":0}
and then
Error: Error: Failed HTTP-01 Pre-Flight / Dry Run. curl 'http://{domain}/.well-known/acme-challenge/test-1227b1a1905f45cddb66b45042a74963-0' Expected: 'test-1227b1a1905f45cddb66b45042a74963-0.0SLBPsgiRroA3wEiUDUrJuauxGeFgOwl2x-S7gnM_tI' Got: ''

I also get 401'd whenever I try and see the page.. I just don't get why it would block the verification system? Currently on Node v10.12.0

My current code says this:

`proxy.register("home.{domain}.com", "" + _CONF.ports.dashboard, {
ssl: {
letsencrypt: {
email: '', // Domain owner/admin email
production: false, // WARNING: Only use this flag when the proxy is verified to work correctly to avoid being banned!


and the initial requiring of Redbird is:

var proxy = require('redbird')({port: _CONF.ports.proxy, secure: true, ssl: {
http2: true,
port: 443
}, letsencrypt: {
path: __dirname + "/certs",
*I've also tried setting the port under letsencrypt to something else and it does nothing! Does the port that this calls need to be open??

Any tips would be great!
