Hi

 

I am trying to access my Nextcloud from outside my LAN (only tested with my phone on 4G using both the app and browser) but I cannot connect. I get an error saying connection could not be established. This is both with with my public ip and a domain name pointed at the public ip.

 

I wanted to try out Nextcloud so I installed the official VM with VMWare player (the network adapter is in bridged mode). I installed it on a laptop which wirelessly connects to the HG659. During the install it automatically detected my LAN and assigned a local ip 192.168.1.X. With this IP I can access nextcloud from any device on my LAN. Despite this, my router did not automatically detect the VM. So I manually added the device using the MAC address from VMWare.  I then forwarded port 443 to the VM by creating a new port mapping application (but I also tried the https preset). This did not work.

 

I also tried disabling the firewalls on the host machine and the router but that also did not work so I turned them back on.

 

Currently I am at a bit of a loss. I would appreciate any help.

Hi,

 

sorry I just saw your post lately right now.

 

Question:

 

- Do you have established a dynamic IP (service) for public IP?

 

I set up Nextcloud on a Odroid C2 with (qualys) A+ rating working fine since a year now. It's used for automatic transfer from my SLR camera's wifi-SD Card via mobile to Nextcloud at home for upload from any place on earth (sure within service provider range or on next occasion in a Hotel or a café when wifi is available again).
