let’s say i have set it up on a local server … will devices be able to access the https server without an internet connection?
You are being somewhat vague with your question.
- your use of the term “it” leaves much to the imagination:
“Does it require internet connection…”
“let’s say I have set it up on a local server …”
- you don’t explain which client is intended to be used, nor which validation method, etc.
But to answer your question:
That answer would be from basic routing 101 and DNS 101.
Given: LE certs are for DNS names [not IP addresses]
- Can the devices resolve the DNS name to an IP?
- Can the devices reach that IP?
If the answer to both is “yes”, then yes; you can access the HTTPS server without an Internet connection.
So my first concern is in how would you get a valid cert from LE without an Internet connection…
i mean after setting it up and trying to visit the domain using any normal device win or whatever in a local network without internet connection .
