Specify different addresses for local or remote

Is there any idea to setup both lan and wan ip for NAS using WebDAV with auto detection like homeassistant app does

So I can get full speed with same SSID at home:)

This is not supported at this time, but it’s an interesting idea.

Moving to suggestions for now.

A post was split to a new topic: Add Hold to fast forward to iOS

I have a small local mirror of the complete library on Google Drive. This would be much needed.

Consider “source priority” as a way of implementing this.

Consider use case of cloud server, home, vacation home, RV and yacht.

Source the most local copy if available.

I can consider home and cloud … maaaaybe RV depending how loosely the word is interpreted … but ‘vacation home’ and … ‘yacht’ … lol … those are use cases, alas, I’ll likely never personally need to consider. But good on ya, mate! :smiley:

Yes, I hope to add this feature, and I even hope to add two different ports to deal with network port bans by network operators. Like, for SMB I use 445 on the LAN, and on the Internet, I use 44501.

Yes, this would really be great!

I’m in on that feature request :slight_smile:

As I always have to switch between two possible „connections“, this workflow would be great:

First attempt connection, example: 192.168.0.4 (intern network address)
Second attempt (if no connection), example: 216.2.55.12 (extern network address)

This would be great:)
At home (in my wlan-environment, I can‘t connect with my external ip) - How do you guys deal with that problem right now?

Probably not the solution you’re looking for but I’ve had great success using tailscale for these purposes to connect to my home jellyfin instance via infuse (with dns resolution coming from my home dns server so my local host names are intact for shares) and it’s fairly quick to set up if you don’t mind a bit of documentation reading.

Not yet you’re not. :wink:

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

@ginid
Thank you for your suggestion.
Basically I also did some testing with VPN connections… more or less successful ::))

Would love, if infuse could handle different connections for one library.

Hi all, new to Infuse here.
I currently have my Apple TV connects directly to Synology directly and it works perfectly.

However I am planning to watch my library remotely on iPad hence will also setup Synology WebDAV based on this guide: Streaming Away From Home – Firecore Support

My question is, will my watch status sync between my iPad and Apple TV?
I do not use Trakt.

And if not, and I am to have Apple TV connect via Synology WebDAV (instead of directly to the NAS), will this result in a slower speed?

I have just started using Tailscale. This works fine for my personal phone (where I have Tailscale), and while I could just have Tailscale on the house apple TV’s this not something my wife and kids will turn on/turn off before using.

Do you just use this on your portable device with Tailscale IP and then on internal network device use regular ip (presumably with iCloud sync off?).

I found when I used the IP address on my phone it would propagate the Tailscale ip server address to my infuse on the Apple TVs and kids iPads, none of which have Tailscale installed.

Hey,

What I do is have my local DNS server (pihole) used by tailscale (they have excellent documentation for this) and point infuse at my local dns entry so if I’m out of home network my VPN automatically kicks on and resolves jellyfin.myhome.customdomain to the same IP it always does, just with an extra hop to the tailscale host in my local network.

So it looks like:

Phone → Cell network → Tailscale host → dns pointing at local IP

And then if I’m on my local network, local dns resolves as normal and connects as always.

I think what you might be missing is a tailscale host in your local network? I use a raspberry pi but any old computer should work as long as it’s on. My actual apple tv doesn’t have tailscale on it (since it’s just a static device that sits within my home network where all my content is), I just use the raspberry pi that sits inside my network as a jumping off point to access the rest of my home network. What it does is effectively bridge the tailscale IPs with my local 192.168.1.XXX IPs and then DNS resolves same as if I was at home.

I have 2 Synology NAS that I am using (one primary and one backup that is not connected to internet that I also run home assistant on). Maybe I just need to turn on exit node on one of these devices and then use local IP?

Edit:
@ginid thanks that actually worked. So for my local devices (aka my apple tv’s) I can just keep using the local IP, and then when I am on cell network with Tailscale on it now resolves my local ip thru Tailscale. This solves this problem completely.

Hi,
It would be great to have adaptive URL configuration for Jellyfin, Emby and Plex servers.
Meaning local and remote URLs. If I’m connected from my local network to use automatically local IP address, otherwise to use remote DDNS address.

Thank you!
