I am running Nextcloud on a local server through Docker and it is running well when accessing it locally without encryption.
- Allow external access through a
- This makes it so I don’t need to open any port or publish my personal IP address in a DNS
- Allow LAN access
- Have desktop and mobile apps automatically use either the tunnel or the local IP depending on which one’s available
I have managed to give external access through
The web access worked well and was properly encrypted, but to access it with desktop apps I needed to force HTTPS in the config:
'overwriteprotocol' => 'https',
Forcing HTTPS made local access impossible as I have no certificate configured.
Also, even if I managed to enable local access, I am not sure how I would do to connect clients to both local and tunnel connections to the same Nextcloud instance.
I have read multiple threads here regarding
cloudflared and none have seemed to address my issue.
What is the best practice to share an unsecured server through an SSH tunnel? Is it possible to not require
'overwriteprotocol' => 'https'?
How to configure Nextcloud clients so they use an SSH tunnel when out, and a direct connection when on LAN?
