Snapdrop container : peers can't see each others

Hi there everyone,

first of all I would like to shout out a big thank you to I found all the stuff I’ve digged through maintained, useful and documented to the top ! Since I have setup so easily that swag container, I almost feel like I too got some swag. I won’t post the gif but it definitely feels like it.

Sadly I encounter an issue with snapdrop : peers just can’t see each others on the snapdrop instance. For instance, I only can exchange files on browsers from the same computer.

  • Maybe I should setup a swag reverse proxy conf file for snapdrop ?
  • Maybe the snapdrop container needs to join a network ?

Any help appreciated !


I’ve been running LinuxServer’s Snapdrop container for a few years so far. I recently realized iOS devices couldn’t detect any others in Snapdrop if the container runs behind a reverse proxy (esp. with SSL/TLS). I hope no one wastes a long time like me to find out the solution. Just go and turn on a Safari experimental feature called “NSURLSession WebSocket” in the iOS settings.

Thank you for your answer. Sadly I’m not using Safari. I will take a look at Firefox to find an option like this one.
