Today I installed Nextcloud on my Raspberry Pi 3 (I’m waiting to receive my RP5 in order to make the actual setup). I was trying to make some tests about how to install it on a Raspberry Pi. I’ll very soon make a fresh install on a RP5 with NVMe installed.
So everything went smooth with clean Docker installation that I made on a Ubuntu Server distro for RP3.
I have a DDNS address that my Asus modem creates. When I setup Nextcloud on my Windows Desktop pc it asks me to enter the address that I connect and I enter the address that I got from the DDNS service. And once the installation is over, the Nextcloud folder appears in Windows Explorer.
My internet’s upload speed is not very fast. It’s around 15-20Mbps. So I understand it will be a little slow to download files but my desktop PC is in the same local network with the Raspberry Pi so I was hoping to have the speed of a local network file sharing. But it looks like even on my desktop it’s trying to download everything from the internet.
Is there a way to make it understand that my PC is connected in the same local network so that I could just use the Nextcloud faster when trying to reach my files from my desktop?
Should I have maybe setup the desktop nextcloud account with the local ip address instead of the domain name that I got with the DDNS? What is the best way to solve this speed issue?
