    Hi R DS,

    You can't log in as a local user and a cloud user at the same time.
    For push notifications, a cloud user is mandatory, and the push notifications are sent through the cloud instance.

    Thanks Norman - Nx Support

    As mentioned, it would be nice if we could be logged in as a cloud user to access notifications, but have access to the server via IP address in order to get the speed of a direct VPN connection

    Hi R DS,

    I assume the VPN enforces the connection to pass through our server as a proxy, which indeed is slower than the default NAT connection.

    At this moment I'm not sure if it is possible/reasonable to develop an option to log in to the same system with the same (mobile) client twice.

    I'll leave this topic open, so other people can comment and vote for this suggestion as well.

    Hi Norman - Nx Support

    Even with the VPN off, the NAT traversal that the cloud connection sets up is significantly slower than a Wireguard VPN connection

    Don't get me wrong - the cloud login/user is definitely an excellent feature for a lot of users who don't have the interest to set up a VPN; however it would be nice to combine the speed of a VPN connection with the functionality of native push notifications
