  1. Can anyone recommend the most current working endpoint for PIA? Montreal and Toronto were my "go-to" endpoints but once configured, I'm not getting any ip address returned when doing "curl" from nzbget docker console window. EDIT: Montreal appears to be working right now. Really curious if there's another setting or something I need to configure to keep the connection active?
  2. Ok, looks like I actually had 25s set in the tunnel already. Thanks anyway!
  3. Yeah, unfortunately PIA is not as straightforward. There's some utilities to generate the .conf file so I'm good there. The persistent keepalive sounds interesting. Is that just another line I need to add to the .conf? I'm not familiar with it. Thanks
  4. I had this working with a couple servers in Canada (I'm in the US) but it seems to go down often. I switched back to the *vpn containers and seems to be working but my speeds are like 1/3 of what they were using wireguard. I'd appreciate some additional setup instructions with PIA as well if someone has this working reliably?
  5. Is your tunnel still working? I keep getting timeout errors with both Montreal and Toronto.
  6. I’m not sure why. For some reason the tunnel stops working. I reload a different conf file I made that works and it’s back again. Been cycling between CA Toronto and CA Montreal. Do you know a server that is working well for you?
  7. What’s the latest consensus on best commercial VPN provider to use with WireGuard on UnRAID? I’ve got PIA working but often have to change servers. With BF deals, I was thinking of switching but I want a provider with fast, reliable servers that I can auto-generate or download a .conf file to use with UnRAID. Thanks
  8. So I'm new to wireguard but managed to setup a tunnel for all of my internet traffic to be routed thru my UnRAID server and I've successully setup my iPhone as a client and it's working great. Now I'm trying to get a wireguard tunnel setup so I can route certain dockers thru my PIA VPN. I was able to create the .conf file using the utility (nice work!) but I'm not sure if I need to configure anything else in UnRAID when I import the tunnel? When I set nzbget to use my custom tunnel (wg1), I can't get any response for an ip address using curl in a console for the respective docker. Do I just need to try another PIA server? Any suggestions on which one to use for dockers like nzbget and deluge? EDIT: So I finally found a server that works...I think. It's the CA-Toronto one. I get an IP address from Toronto returned to me when typing curl inside a docker terminal. Anything else I need to verify?
  9. I tried downgrading to 6.10.3 but still have the same 2 clients that won’t connect (haven’t tried the Win 10 pc yet). The other 2 that were working under 6.11.3 are still working.
  10. Thanks and sorry...didn't scroll down far enough! 😖
  11. Where can I download this version of the OS? I need to downgrade my current version to troubleshoot an issue and I'm too far from this version to use the Upgrade OS tool.
  12. Thanks for responding. I added ntlm auth = yes to my smb extra configuration in my UnRAID SMB settings but didn’t observe any change with the clients that are timing out. If I restrict smb to v1 min and max in Kodi then I can use smb to browse to my WORKGROUP but no further. On one of the unresponsive clients, with smb min setting to v1 and max to v3, I can actually browse my shares in Kodi but when Emby Next Gen tries to connect to it there’s a timeout. I’m really at a loss now since I have some clients working, one can browse the shares and the others show no signs of any connection at all. This is so frustrating… Edit: at least now I can correlate when my clients lost connection to my server happened with the upgrade to 6.11. It has been over a month I’ve been trying to figure out what happened.
  13. I was a bit premature in thinking I had solved this. For some reason, I've got it working on one AFTV client (EDIT: now 2 AFTV clients different vintages and one wired with the other wireless but I can’t get another wired AFTV to work nor a Windows 10 version of Kodi as a well as my Nividia Shield TV Pro) but not on 2 others, a Win10 pc or my nVidia Shield TV Pro. I would think this would lend itself to a client side issue but I can't seem to figure it out. The first AFTV client seemed to work after I made 2 changes: 1) I changed the min level SMB Client setting to v1 (from any) 2) I changed the SMB security setting on my "media" share from private (requires username and password) to secure (guest read only access). The AFTV cleint that is working is a 1st or 2nd gen FireTV (the square box version with a wired connection) but one of the other AFTV's is the same vintage and the other is a FireTV Stick Lite. The server timeout issue points to a permissions issue but I don't understand why I don't have issues with other apps on the same clients (e.g. the Emby app works fine)? @Frank1940: I've been reading thru several of the threads you've created on SMB and UnRAID. Pretty helpful but I have a couple questions around best practices for setting up shares to be accessed by clients like my AFTV's and Shield Pro (e.g. secure vs private, netbios on/off etc). Seems Kodi adds another layer of complexity. Curious if you have any thoughts on things I might try to narrow down the issue?
  14. Changed the name of the thread to see if I could find someone with more understanding of network configuration and local setttings.
  15. Update: the team over at Emby have successfully tested my setup over WAN and found no issues playing my media library via Kodi. This points to a LAN issue. Anyone who might be able to help me troubleshoot my LAN setup (or software configuration changes within UnRaid or Kodi) would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  16. Man, nobody uses Kodi + Emby with their UnRAID server that might be able to weigh in here?? Must be a permissions issue somewhere but I can't find it as I'm not an experienced Kodi user.
  17. Bumping this in the hopes someone can help me figure out what changed in my setup?
  18. EDIT: I changed the title of this thread because it was a very specific use case that I was having issues with and guessing not a lot of people had that same combination. After some extensive troublehsooting with the team over at Emby on why my server keeps timing out when trying to access via Kodi and the Emby for Kodi next-gen addon, they were able to surmise that I have a local networking issue as playback over WAN via Kodi works fine. Is there anyone that could help me troubleshoot my LAN setup to see if we can find the root cause of the problem? Ever since I upgraded to Unraid OS +6.11, I lost the ability to connect to my Unraid server thru kodi using Emby Next Gen addon. I started with help from the Emby community and basically after several troubleshooting attempts, they've determined the issue must be server side or within my Kodi configuration. To summarize, whenever Emby Next Gen attempts to connect to my Emby media server, the server has a timeout. This doesn't happen with any other Emby configurations (e.g. AFTV Emby app, iOS app, Windows etc) on multiple devices. The issue is exclusive to kodi (both v. 19.3 and 19.4 on two different clients - 2x AFTV's running 19.4 and an nVidia Shield TV Pro on 19.3). What information could I provide to help troubleshoot? Attached are two different kodi logs (regular and debug) after a timeout. The emby logs didn't show anything to the Emby team but happy to include here as well if needed. Thanks in advance. kodi debug log.txt kodi log.txt
  19. is anyone else seeing sonarr tv grabs in their radarr queue? Is this a category issue? Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:
  20. Strange. I just rebooted server and same message. EDIT: I deleted the container and added it back and problem solved.
  21. So I just went to check on my preclear and the VNC remote screen looks like attached. How do I know if it’s still running? It’s as if there’s a terminal window oversized on my screen but I can’t scroll to see any command line? Edit: So I can see from main UnRAID screen the disk is still being written to as it was in the zeroing phase. I just can’t get the terminal window to show up? Edit 2: So I managed to get the terminal window back but no idea what I did exactly. I was trying to set different scaling options to see if that would work but no change. I pinched the screen (working on an iPad) and it was back. Prior I was using AnyDesk on my Windows vm to check progress. Perhaps the combination of pinching between the two caused it??
  22. I went to preclear a new 14TB drive and got this message: After some searching, it seems like preclear might be able to fix it but wanted to ask before I proceed. Thanks Edit: I also tried the -A attribute and same result. Same error on two brand new 14TB drives.
  23. Not really...I was rallying off your firewall’d comment! Perhaps you just meant the VPN containers themselves, but I was looking for some guidance on the best configuration given my use case?
