I’ve been messing around for a long time with creating reverse proxy‘s for the applications I use with OpenMediaVault. Creating a Let’s Encrypt SSL encrypted reverse proxy for Plex especially. But in the last few days I finally managed to achieve it. Today I’m going to share with you how to create encrypted Reverse Proxy for Plex in OpenMediaVault 2.x using Let’s Encrypt free SSL-certificates.
In this tutorial I will show you how to setup a Nginx Reverse Proxy in OpenMediaVault for several popular applications: SABnzbd, Radarr, Sonarr and Tranmission.
If you want to access your OpenMediaVault NAS from the web (WAN), using a Reverse Proxy is the safest method. You only have to open up one port on your modem/router, instead seperate ports for each application. After following this tutorial Nginx will parse the URI (e.g. https://nas.yourdomain.com/sabnzbd) and forward that request to the corresponding port inside your local network (LAN).
