App External Storage Connection Problem SMB and Webdav

I have a Connection Problem in between NextCloud and FreeNAS11.
I give to FreeNAS a SMB or Webdav release. Testing the connection in the Windows Client go all connections.
I give in nexcloud the logon data to nothing happens.

The following data I enter:

Host: FreeNAS IP 192.168.x.x
Share: SMB Path z.B. /mnt/…/
User: SMB User
Password: SMB PW

Is it correct that config?
Please help me. I am a new NextCloud User and very inexperienced.




Could you please check the nextcloud.log for error messages?
I also have a problem with external storage and for it has to do with self-signed certificates which are not allowed by Nextcloud. Maybe it’s the same for you.

Hi Schmu,
in the NextCloud Log come 2 Error.

Sabre\HTTP\ClientException: Failed to connect to port 80: Connection timed out

OCP\Files\StorageNotAvailableException: Sabre\HTTP\ClientException: Failed to connect to port 80: Connection timed out

This error is always high.

Hi @Zyrusvirus

The port 80 is correct and open on the device behind the IP correct?
Port 80 would be used for Webdav. If you use SMB you don’t need to enter a port.

For SMB the config should be something like:
Share: Music (this would simply be network share, you see when you enter \\ in your Windows Explorer)

If you mounted your Network Share I guess you can configure a Local Share in Nextcloud. Meaning, select “Local” in the external storage configuration panel and enter the path /mnt/…

I hope this helps.

Hello @all,
I have further tested with my Problem.
In hindsight I have everything as under this link post-installed.
I cannot connect to FTP, WebDAV, SMB or other connection.
Under journalctl -xe cannot sea a connection Problem or other abnormalities.
Are there any other options?
