    In one of your screenshots I saw "WAN IP ="

    You will never ever be able to reach your device from the internet.

    tyou're right, and in fact I just put that ip from my pc and log in (I'm glad), but immediately I found out from my cell that it's not connected to my local network and doesn't log in ... but my public ip is 181.188.177. xxx (according to google) and does not enter anywhere...

    i dont know what to do i just want to make a private cloud with nextcloud for my jobteam to share work files over nxt cloud without to ay to google drive or thats services...

    yeah that why i conectd the omv directly to the modem... then i did this

    To simplify things I would remove one of the router from the equation and connect the NAS directly to the router that is connected to the internet.

    yhea!! thats a great idea of course!!, that way I could see what the problem is that the modem or the router is giving me since I cannot eliminate either of the 2 because I have several other connections, but if I can discard and see which one is causing me problems.

    yeeah I am watching thecnodadlife (he rules) and he teaches that 1st the omv must have an internet connection, but that is what I cannot do with my routers

    :thumbup:Hello friends, I have been trying to install nextcloud for a long time and I can not even access my omv from outside my network, please I ask for your help and for that I will describe the most exact thing that I have :rolleyes:


    Dual PC 2.20, 2gb ram, 1 80gb hdd (omv installed), 1 Raid 5 of 2tb (3-1tb hdd), 1 hdd 300gb, 1 ssd 120gb


    OMV 5.5.19-1 (usul), IP address, port 81, ssl certificate, port 447

    Modem Router Wifi: ARRIS - TG2482, Wifi disabled, IP address

    Router: TP-link Archer C7 V2, wan address, lan IP address


    arris modem router with Virtual Servers / Port Forwarding

    inbound port: 81 to 81

    format: both (tcp / udp)

    private ip address:

    local port: 81 to 81

    inbound port: 447 to 447

    format: both (tcp / udp)

    private ip address:

    local port: 447 to 447

    Router TP-link Archer C7 V2

    Forwarding / virtual servers

    Service Port: 81

    Internal Port: 81

    Service Port: 447

    Internal Port: 447

    IP Address:

    protocol: both

    status: enable

    when I try to connect from outside the network I use the public ip for example:

    and does not connect anything ...

    I also write it like this: or and nothing ...

    what am i doing wrong friends please


    Do you have the ports open on the arris modem?

    mmm no i dont... do i have to doit it so¿ ok...

    for example, my arris TG2482AP2 wifi modem router with local ip sends the ip address (DHCP) to my tplink router so ...

    Do I have to open ports 81 and 447 already configured and point them to that address?

    and I don't use the default ports 80 and 443 because I have read forums and seen videos on youtube and others that teach that you must change the ports to install docker, portainer and the next cloud.

    also ... do I also have to open the router ports?

    the ip address of my lan router is and it sends a static IP to my devices like for example

    I try to install nextcloud to share my folders with my external work team and in the tutorials it appears that I must have internet access but I open the ports of my TpLink archer AC1750 c7 v2 router and it does not allow me to connect to my omv through the internet.

    somebody help me please

    I have an arris modem connected to my TpLink c7 router and I open the forwarding port but I don't know if I should open them on the modem too

    FINALLY !!

    install omv only with iso image then docker from your repository and then portainer and now if you were able to install everything ...

    The bad thing is that it is only a nas now ... I no longer have any debian or anything like that, it only serves to store ... good ...

    no matter I will install debian on some other machine to test it :(

    now I must start installing nextcloud and configure it ... hopefully I don't have a big problem :o

    thank for all your help friend

    OMV is based on Debian. If you install from the linked ISO you will get Debian 10 and OMV5 on top of it.


    ok now if I understand you friend ... install a version of debian where it asks me to choose the desktop environment and avoid any desktop environment gnome, kde, xlde etc ..

    I chose without any desktop environment and was left only as a console or terminal.

    1 yes! debian 10 was installed without desktop and

    2 then by console install omv,

    3 mount all the disks and some shared folders

    4 update pluging and enter in extras again and click on install docker

    5 .... :( It did´nt install docker and again i no longer had internet, only connected or ssh to folders and all the network but no internet ... :( :( they no longer did ping or google ...

    I plan to install omv now without devian or anything alone and pure omv

    Use of OMV on an OS with Desktop is not supported.

    The Desktop environment and OMV try to configure the same things (like network) and this will cause issues.

    Why don't you use Debian Buster (without desktop).

    I already installed debian buster lxde works fine

    install omv 5 works fine

    install docker ok ... but ...

    Again the internet stopped working, I imagine it does something to the dns (I think) :( I just don't know why this is happening to me, it's very frustrating ... I see all the tutorials on YouTube that is so easy but I problems result ... :( :(


    sorry for my english but i think i am understanding it better ...

    You mean I can't install OMV with DOCKER and portainer on ANY other OS and even debian because docker will seek to use something that cannot be shared between OS and omv with docker (like network connection) ?.

    to be able to use omv with docker and portainer I have to install only omv as an operating system or debian without a graphical interface, without Desktop?

    There is no way to have a functional operating system like debian with programs and others with omv, docker and portainer on the same machine running at the same time.

    PLEASE what I need to do is this please advise me what I should do to achieve it please

    1 a machine with linux to use sometime that I need, for example debian to use as a test of an operating system that I have never used and see if I can get used to it and stop using windows.

    2 a nas server that can use my raid 5 disks to use as backup of my important files from my Windows machines and at the same time upload work files to shared folders such as graphic designs and video editions among others.

    3 allow my work team in other countries to enter those shared folders and use or edit all those work files as they need, as if it were a cloud ... (something like google drive or dropbox) for that I had seen that can do with nextcloud

    4 connect my printer and share it via cups with all my windows machines

    Please tell me if it is mandatory for this to use docker and portainer?
