Hello thank you for your reply!
1) I have shown you the real configuration and logs. All I changed was the
FQDN's because I dont know if I am allowed by my company to post them
2) Which tests do you recommend I run using telnet and curl? I am not too
familiar with using curl so any guidance will be greatly appreciated!
