I should be a fairly "easy" and needed to be able to configure what host and port webclipper will connect to. I have another machine that is running joplin on the same LAN that I want to use webclipper from. If I could only configure the host ip on it it would supposedly just work.
I tried a workaround thought that caused an unexpected behavior. I ran
socat TCP-LISTEN:41184,fork TCP:10.42.0.218:41184 on the remote machine, where 10.42.0.218 is the machine where joplin is running, i was intending to port foward my 127.0.0.1:41184 to the server in order to make it work. But then, when viewing webclipper it said "searching", which it wasn't before, but firefox suddenly used so much ram that I had to restart the machine.
The machine is a ubuntu 20.04 lts. It has low resources. Maybe that is a bug on the webclipper plugin? Is there another tested way i could port forward it....
