Nextcloud through Tunnel


I have installed Nextcloud on my UNRAID server and created a tunnel to access the Nextcloud extenally.
When checking the Nexcloud warnings, I see the following,
" * Your remote address was identified as “xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx” and is brute-force throttled at the moment slowing down the performance of various requests. If the remote address is not your address this can be an indication that a proxy is not configured correctly. For more details see the documentation :arrow_upper_right:."

Note: I have not shared the real tunnel hence the xxxx.

How do I reslove this warning message?

Thank you in advance,


Are you connecting through a :orange: proxied hostname?

Are you restoring original visitor IPs?


I created a Cloudflare tunnel and added the nextcloud as a hostname. This created an entry in the DNS of my domain if that is what you mean?

I am not sure what you mean by “Are you restoring original visitor IPs?”

Appreciate your response,


Then you should probably read the guide that I linked and make sure that you have configured your webserver accordingly.
