Well done!

Regarding accessing it you need to use the URL that you have defined in your ROOT_URL variable in Docker.

If you haven't changed the parameter then it will expect access on localhost:3000 as the image presents. But ofc that will not work as localhost will in your case mean the device you are accessing it from, and there is no RC instance there.

What did you configure your ROOT_URL to?
Now, I not change ROOT_URL with default value --> I need change it to my nas IP?

The only problem I see is the MONGO_OPLOG_URL value of the Db. It should point to the local db value. Double check it. Still not sure how it is still working and starting the server that way.

Not sure if your container is actually working as it should or is this the problem. Try and alter it and let’s see if you are still unable to connect.

Also, do you have any other container running so far?

Guessing you are running this behind a reverse proxy or in lan? Also if you are using official apps (ios/android) you will need to have it configured using an https url with a valid cert.

Also, if you are going behind reverse, make sure to have websocket configured.

So from what client are you testing this and how?

Trying to run it over my LAN to make sure I've got everything set up correctly with Docker (it's my first time using Docker). Been doing everything on Synology's web software and trying to connect with RC's desktop app on my Windows PC.

After this, I'll set up a reverse proxy and attach to my custom domain name to get my mobile apps set-up.

Almost certain the desktop app will not allow http connections as well.

Are you trying using http://your_nas_ip:3000? What exact error do you get?

99% it's an HTTPS problem. Considering that your instance is running just change the ROOT_URL and configure it to an HTTPS URL with a valid certificate (using reverse proxy for example), then just rerun it. Should fix it. Also, don't forget to configure websocket for your reverse host entry.

Okay will do! Time to get on that reverse proxy then. Thanks for the help.
