Terminals (xterm.js, noVNC) not working over remote access connections

I have a web public-facing interface to my Proxmox instances. When I'm on my local network, web terminals work fine. I don't open SSH out because my servers have been the subject of multiple SSH attacks. I would just use the web terminals - but they just don't work. noVNC refuses to cooperate, and xterm.js throws error 1006. (I've checked the xterm.js 1006 post on here before, wasn't relevant and didn't help).

Any ideas?
