WAN Bonjour access working for anyone?

I wonder if this works for people who have better internet than I do, cursed as I am with craptastic CenturyLink DSL's .8 Mbps upstream rate.

I have the Bonjour menu turned on in Safari, and it populates automatically with LAN devices from my subnet that support Bonjour, of course. But I also use iCloud extensively, and so I also see my Indigo server in that list, since iCloud Back To My Mac populates WAN based Bonjour.

But I can never, ever connect to my Indigo web interface over a WAN connection ending in members.btmm.icloud.com. I get a "Failed to open page/can't connect to server" error. Doesn't even work on the LAN! Not from the Bonjour menu, anyway, which is tied to an IPv6 address. indigo.local works fine, when I'm local.


SmartThings refugee, so happy to be on Indigo. 10.12.6 on an i5 MBP w/Harmony Hub, Hue, DomoPad, Dynamic URL, Device Extensions, HomeKit Bridge, MatplotLib, Plex, uniFAP, Wunderground, Nanoleaf, LED Simple Effects, Airfoil Pro, Grafana.
