Using the Nextcloud clients in a network behind a proxy server

Hello everyone,

I set up a Nextcloud server on an external public webserver and want to sync data with the desktop client and the android client. It works, but: Now I’m at home but I prepare the use of nextlcoud in a network using a proxy (authentication needed with username and password) to filter the internet connection of all users (set up for HTTP and HTTPS). Is it possible to use the clients (especially the android client) in this scenario? I didn’t find any specific option in the client settings yet. :male_detective: Which ports are used by the clients and will it be possible to configure them to work with the proxy?

I hope you can help me, would be very kind :wink:

You have to configure the Proxy section in nextcloud.cfg as described in

For example:
