Friendica not federated

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VMWare Workstation 17
YunoHost version: 11.2.12
I have access to my server : through the webadmin | direct access via keyboard / screen | …
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no
If your request is related to an app, specify its name and version: Friendica, version 2023.12

Description of my issue

I’m trying to log in via the Android Mastodon client but it doesn’t find my instance of Friendica, same with AndStatus. I intend to run a community server and the ldapauth plugin seems to work fine.
How can I give access to my Friendica instance to other LDAP users on Android or Iphone ?

hi, you seem to mix up many things here.

You try to access your workstation VMWare from your phone, is your vmware workstation correctly configured to be accessible outside your computer running it?
Where does it run ? I’m guessing home ?
is your home router configured to open all the ports needed to the WAN ? And do you transfer them correctly to your server ?
Do you use a legitimate domain name ? maybe from ? self-signed ?

Your smartphone connects on the same LAN? Through 4G ?

Last but not least : not accessing your application does not mean it is not federating :stuck_out_tongue:

Good luck with all of this.

My VM has a dedicated NIC and my firewall has NAT rules and opened ports accordingly. The test tool from Yunohost shows everything including the self-signed certificate is in order. I know I’m more of a Windows Server admin (20+ years) but I understand basic networking and a little about sudo on Debian. You can check for yourself that the website is accessible from outside my “home”.
What I need is a way to access my instance of Friendica with a mobile based client (Android or Iphone) like Fedilab or Mastodon. Also my directory shows no local contacts although they are in configured in SSO (for example they can access Login – Nextcloud). Seems the yunohost implementation of friendica requires some setting up I don’t know of
