As I recall, it's relatively easy to set it up securely as long as the files are only being accessed on my internal network.

Of course, using it with the RPi 4 it should run a lot better because it has more RAM. This is one area where having more RAM is a lot better. You can run more add-ons for NextCloud with more memory.
Quote from: Jason Wallwork on January 19, 2021, 09:57:00 PMIt's not really a file server although it does let you access files through the interface. What I mean by that is that you can't just go into the Networking feature in Linux or Windows and access files that way. You'd have to install something else (a plug-in perhaps) to do that. I believe that OpenMediaVault is better in this regard. The OMV website describes it as "the next generation network-attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more." However, NextCloud likely has add-ons for these features as there are a lot of add-ons. I counted apps in their app store and got bored after counting a hundred. And I was only 1/3 down the page. I note that OMV has an option to SSH into it and with RSync you can sync your files on your desktop(s) with the files on it. But for plug-ins, OMV is quite limited. It's not at all the same thing.
