How to access file from out the Lan?

i’m new of NextCloud. There is possible to access file from out the local network? If it is possible I will use my Nas instead Google Drive.

thanks a lot

Yes you can, you need to activate port forwarding on your router. To use a hostname, you can use dynamic dns providers such as to keep the same hostname even if your ip address is changing regularly.

thanks for answer! Can i access whit web browser and i must open port 8080? Can i access also with windows application from out of the network?


It depends on which port you installed nextcloud. In theory, you can take any port you like. Once you set it up correctly, you should be able to access from outside regardless the operating system. Some public internet access points only allow the use of standard web ports 443 and 80 (perhaps some proxies or VPN ports as well).
