I’m a new Nextcloud user. I installed it on a fresh Ubuntu machine using Snap.
It works fine inside my local network but I’m really stuck trying to access it from the public internet.
I registered to Noip.com in order to get a DDNS address for the machine.
My router is Huawei HG635 and it doesn’t support Noip.com in the DDNS settings, so instead of configuring it in the router I installed the software for Noip.com in the computer.
The problem is that when I type in the DDNS address I will get redirected to the router management panel. I have been googling around like crazy and these are some of the things I have tried:
- Change the port of the management software -Didn’t find a way of doing this in the HG635
- Try bridging for the LAN port connected to the machine. -After turning on bridging the computer could not connect at all anymore.
- Do port forwarding in the router. -I’m not sure how to properly set this up in the HG635. Here is what I tried (for some reason image upload didn’t work for me so I’m writing the parameters as text):
Mapping name: nxt
Internal host: ubuntuserver-PRO-H61-IM-Ethernet
There is also the option to create a new rule, but I’m not sure what values I should insert into these fields:
External port: ___ ~ ___
Internal port: ___ ~ ___
Protocol: (possible options are TCP, UDP and TCP/UDP)
If I try to access the DDNS address from an outside connection (not my home network) then it will actually load Nextcloud login.
But it won’t really be usable if I can only access Nextcloud from outside my home network…
I’m quite new to this networking stuff and really stuck at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
