Hello to the community.
Before going further in my searches, I wanted to expose my idea to see if it is even possible.
I work at a small eco-building company where we use nextcloud ( and owncloud before it) for more than one year now.
It’s really useful since we are a cooperative, and not everyone is physically at the office everyday.
the thing is, when everyone is here, any file created/modified by one user goes online by the web connection, then comes back as many times as there are users, through the same ( not so fast ) internet connection, which is kind of stupid since we are all next to eachother.
It’s sometimes annoying because we have to wait ( for the 50mo files for example, 5 min upload, then 2-3 min download on every machine )
My idea is : would it be possible to use our local NAS ( only used as backup file server since we use a cloud ) to serve as something like a proxy server, so that nextcloud would first look locally to update the files instead of downloading all from our online server.
Also, the NAS would be the only one to sync with the online server instead of all computers.
I don’t know if I’m clear in my explanations ?
Can nextcloud understand to check one specific URL when in one place ( aka at the office ) , and another URL when in another place ( aka at home ) ?
Is it even possible? Or would it require some sort of advanced coding / configuration ?
I’m not really good at coding or configurate webservers etc ^^
Would this link help ?
Note : NAS is a synology DS414
Thanks a lot for your help.
