You can use a static address on the PI but its better to put them in both the router and PI to stop clashes. You would need to access the router configuration as every one seems to be different
Setting the Pi up is not too difficult. You have to edit /etc/dhcpcd.conf using
and change the contents to something along these lines (do not copy this
- it is an example only):
Code: Select all
If access from outside the home is required then you will need to:
1) Make sure the server is well hardened from attack - start
here https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... ecurity.md
and check with Nextcloud for their needs.
2) Forward the needed ports on the router - see Nextcloud for their needs.
3) Set up a DDNS service - some are free and some are supported by the router.
Document everything (esp passwords) so when you mate rings you at three in the morning with 'something has gone wrong' you can remember what you have done
Let us know where you want to start...
