Port help and another questions

It’s my first time working with a VPS that has no “visual feedback” and I’m not going to lie, it’s being pretty hard in some aspects.

The first issue I’m having is related to ports, I’m using OVH and I have tried opening the ports via their firewall panel and via sudo ufw, none of those options seem to work - I’m currently using CloudFlare as my DNS manager - could that be the issue?

And my other question is related to the SMTP server - do I need to set it up before installing Discourse or can I change it later?

Cloudflare can be used in “DNS Only” mode if you’d like to install discourse. To do so, disable cloudflare proxy by clicking the orange cloud on the DNS tab in cloudflare. It should turn grey once the proxy is disabled.
