Client on Windows no connection after sleep

Server: Centos 7.9 x64, NC: 20.0.5
Client: Windows 10 x64, client: 3.1.1

It’s been for some time now, since moved to version 3.x basically, that when I come out of long sleep, NC desktop will show the Red “X” with an error there’s no network connection.

Couple of ways to fix it:

  1. Shut the client and restart it
  2. Change the proxy setting to “system proxy” followed by “no proxy” will re-initiate the connection.

Both ways suggest it’s not a network issue, but some bug with the client.
Also, it happens with few clients on different machines sitting on different networks.

There’s a git issue that seems to point to the same issue: Nextcloud + Always-on VPN = trouble (network access is disabled) · Issue #2628 · nextcloud/desktop · GitHub, but I haven’t seen much going on there (apart from the last message that point to 3 bugs that might be fixed in 3.1.2 that is still not available.

Would love to know that I’m not the only one with the same issue, cause it’s quite annoying…

If got the same issue on multiple computers, even ithout vpn clients installed.

Hello,
Same problem here since 3.1.1, when a Windows 10 system (no need for VPN / Proxy) gets out of sleep, the nextcloud client is not connecting and the red X comes up.
Only solution is to shutdown client and launch it again.
Thanks,

You’re definitely not the only one that this is happening to and that feels this way. I think it’s important to say that these days.

As a new user migrating to nextcloud from Dropbox and Google Drive I expected problems but I’m glad to see a current response that isn’t 5 years old and snarky.

I’ve been using Nextcloud for few years now, since Dropbox moved to a paid model (make sense for them).

I can tell you that Nextcloud is briilient!
This issue with the client is quite new. I’m not sure why it takes them that long to fix it, since quite a few people hit by it.

As soon as this fix they - you’ll love it. It is an awesome product.
