@_discord_723598331145617508:t2bot.iofranner Server is in docker 04:41:18
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER What's the difference between the local IP and public IP? 08:52:19
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER I didn't knew that, thanks for sharing the info 08:52:56

@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 The public ip applies to your whole home and by default blocks most incoming traffic. It's what you see if you open a browser and search what's my IP.

The local IP is specific to each device in your home and for your server it's what you hopefully will see if you do what I said (open terminal and type ifconfig, then look for the "inet" entry)

@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 It's kind of like knowing your building number vs apartment number. Knowing just the apartment number only gets you there if you're already in the building. Knowing the building number only gets you to the building but won't be delivered the rest of the way without more information. Right now your mobile is "in the building" so if you tell it the "apartment number" (your server's "local IP") that's enough for a device that's already "in the building" (on the same local network/same wifi).

Later we can work on getting connections "into the building" using tail scale or your public ip or whatever, but first, connections need to be able to get into the "apartment"

@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER Ahhhhhh 14:08:24
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER Ok 14:08:26
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER Wait 14:08:28
@_discord_1019891188679049237:t2bot.ionoob5678 That's a cool metaphor 14:14:35
@_discord_1019891188679049237:t2bot.ionoob5678 Or analogue. One of those 14:15:13
@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 The rule I learned was: if it uses "like" or "as" then it's usually an analogy. 14:25:57

@_discord_1019891188679049237:t2bot.ionoob5678 Funny I learned that as a simile... 16:19:30
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER So I assume the local IP is the one that starts with 192.168.. 18:58:57
@_discord_837991134659084289:t2bot.ioLONEWALKER Well I tried that, still it didn't work 18:59:01
@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 Oh you're right! 19:18:32
@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 So your phone is on the same wifi, and you put in your phone "http://192.168.x.xx:13378" and it still didn't work? 19:19:51

@_discord_759169401437683712:t2bot.iohobesman#6697 Try putting that address into the browser on your computer and see if that works. 22:28:13
