Nextcloud AIO, trying to setup local connect via DNS rewrite to local ip, can't access via local ip

I have AIO working fine. I also have it working fine behind my domain via cloudflare. thats all perfect. however I have to sync a large amount of files, and I don’t want to hammer cloudflare, and its also 100x faster locally. So i added a DNS rewrite to my local dns to the ip of my nextcloud server. I get connection refused errors for that. even if I directly access my server on lan at I still get connection refused. what am I missing here? I can connect to 8080 locally, and it just tells me AIO is running fine.

Hi, are you using Cloudflare Tunnel?
