I’m investigating Nextcloud for personal and small business use. I want to set up a server at home and access it remotely. At home I don’t have a business internet connection, which means I don’t have a static IP. My question then, is: does Nextcloud have a workaround for this so my files can still be accessed if the IP address changes?
As an example of what I mean, I currently use Syncthing as a distributed alternative to Dropbox. Syncthing has no central server, but clients connect to each other over the internet or on your LAN to keep files synchronised. It works great for individual use, but isn’t so suitable for sharing between groups of people. To handle changing IP addresses, the authors of Syncthing provide a discovery server, which allows the nodes of the network to discover each others IP addresses and connect to each other directly. No file data is transferred over this discovery server, just the information to allow the nodes in your network to connect to each other.
Does Nextcloud have a similar system, or any other way to deal smoothly with a changing IP address where my Nextcloud instance lives? I’ve tried searching for various things to see if this is the case, but it either doesn’t exist, or my google-fu is weak!
