  1. Thanks - that is just if I want to provide basic login authentication to hosts myself, right? In which case, I do not use that.
  2. Can I ask a paranoid question - when I set this up original I could swear there was some message about needing to move the default passwords file location from www folder or something? For the life of me, I can't find any mention or reference to this elsewhere so not sure if was just hallucinating or not... Point is - I have nginx working great with a mix of externally accessible and lan-only sub-domains but want to ensure I haven't left some silly gaping security hole.. I have of course set up a strong password for nginx itself and all the hosts have their own login access control
  3. This worked a treat for me as well using Nginx proxy manager - only tweaks were to update the docker config path which I specifically limited to read-only on the certificate folder for the plex certificate for a little extra security. I also didn't need to do step 3 either and Plex is now working remotely via my own domain (including via web + android / tv apps). My main question (part out of curiosity, part to ensure no gaping security risk) is what is the above actually implementing? Is it that we effectively have SSL encryption from REMOTE DEVICE<->
  4. Also double check device info page unraid to ensure you havent selected the card for pcie passthrough. I just bought a 1660 and it worked perfectly.
  5. Ok thanks - will try and open up my mItx then and extract out its beloved rtx 2070 I got as a retrospective steal in April 2020! Re plex, yes I have plex pass and set it up according to your guide and was running a 4k video on my phone set to max 1080p quality - the UI showed this accurately but the video froze. Will keep you posted - looks like will need to find a stopgap cheap basic nvidia gpu in interim (just for windows vm hosting blue iris).. something like a GT 710 I guess?? Blue iris won't be hardware accelerated on that basis but its just to make the vm function
  6. Ok thanks - I am coming to the same conclusion. Re no need for a bios file, is that nvidia driver in windows or elsewhere? Why is this out of curiosity? -- So I've installed your driver to try it out within a docker container - Plex transcoding appears to work initially (shows 'hw') but then freezes the moment i try to e.g. jump forward by 30 secs - no such issue in software transcoding. On PhoenixMiner the log reads - ignorantly, I would take this to mean the GPU memory is dud or such but interested to get your wisdom (I should be able to claim under ebay/p
  7. Ok thanks v much and the latter looks particularly impressive... Out of curiosity have you ever seen a symptom like I am experiencing whereby I have seemingly passed through my GPU (albeit UEFI boot only with CSM enabled) and the Windows desktop will operate fine but the moment I run a game or demo just that software freezes or crashes... I've tried a lot of things including new vm templates, diff driver versions, techpowerup and direct bios dump (albeit latter was 124KB vs 1MB for hex edited techpowerup!).. I guess my main paranoia is if I got sold a dud on eBay o
  8. Thanks - was hoping something even simpler like a retro 3d demo but can try one of these!
  9. Is there any docker container I can use after installing this nvidia driver to test my GPU is actually working (under moderate stress) The reason I ask is I bought a GTX 1650 off ebay (sold as fully working open box) and whilst I can install windows VM, nvidia drivers and the desktop shows fine, any time I run a game or directx/opengl demo, the software immediately freezes / crashes back to the windows desktop. I don't have another computer to try it on hence thought this could be a simple way to test without needing to worry if its a passthrough issue or not..
  10. Hi all, Just getting started with my Unraid Server.. thanks of course to SpaceInvaderOne for the tremendous efforts (and definitely deserving of a cut from LimeTech!) Everything has gone very well apart from a bizarre issue around the GPU passthrough. The GPU is a simple Zotac GTX 1650 Low Profile and whilst I can actually boot into windows and operate the desktop fine, the moment I look to run any sort of DirectX game/test the software immediately crashes back to the Windows desktop.. there is no error message whatsoever. I've tried switching from i441 to Q35 and
  11. Hi - I am going adventurous and trying to build a somewhat powerful unraid server as a NAS, windows VM (blueiris) plus a bunch of dockers including plex. Main hardware is a short depth 4U rackmount case with intel i7 10700 and asus rog strix z490-h mobo. I am planning to shuck 4x WD Elements 18tb hard drives and install 2 SSDs for cache / windows VM. A couple of basic questions as I continue to prep the hardware purchases (not easy in these times!): 1) Will the shucked drives be SAS drives and consequently do I need to buy a specific PCI-E SAS c
