I would like to be able to connect my ONLYOFFICE document server implementation locally, rather than through an external A-record DNS call. Is this possible?
Usage case: I have my ONLYOFFICE document server installed on a local LXC with hostname ONLYOFFICE. It has a self-signed certificate. I add the URL https://OnlyOffice to the plugin settings.
Problem: Only computers on the local network can connect to it. Furthermore, because it has a self-signed certificate, only computers with that certificate added as an exception can connect. Else, you get a blank page.
Potential alternative solution: Set up a DNS server, and purchase/configure a FQDN for the ONLYOFFICE server. Also must configure a valid SSL certificate. This requires a lot more work and resources than necessary, plus, it opens up some potential security issues since the ONLYOFFICE server is now open to the WWW.
