  1. thanks man, will have to play around a bit. this was the output. sent 3,158,320,869 bytes received 87 bytes 1,526,865.34 bytes/s
  2. thanks buddy, i will have a read of that. Are my speeds normal?
  3. figured this out, was a permission setting on the share on Freenas. I finally moved the Freenas out of the house to my folks house. It worked no problem, just gave the machine a static IP and forwarded the port. The problem is, it is very slow, getting only 1.25 mb/s so a 3.2gb Windows ISO takes about 45 minutes. Any tips on speeding it up? oh by the way, i have 20 up and they have 50 down. Thanks for all the help with this!

    New User Help unraid/plex server

    I had problems with this too, i used this guys settings to try to make sense of it all..
  5. hey guys, one last question. I mentioned this before in this thread but I just did some syncing and i go to delete the files in Windows from the shares and it says something about I don't have the proper permissions. Is there a way to fix this? don't want to start syncing files and have all sorts of different permissions attached to different files.
  6. reinstalled Freenas because i was swapping around hard drives. Decided to delete all files and redo this from scratch. Had it up and running in 5 minutes. Took good notes last time in case this would happen.
  7. haha, i think i need a vacation and yes it is a great feeling. my wife thinks i am an idiot for spending all this time on something like this when i can just drive a hard drive over to my parents house.. i told her that isn't the point funny thing is i am watching these youtube videos doing it and they are only like 3 minutes long, i got about 25 hours into it! about all i could add to the book is some coloring i just hope neither system goes down because i would hate to have to do it again.
  8. guys, finally got this working.. i watched a couple more videos on Youtube on the subject. I am only going one way, from Unraid to Freenas. So i only had to go onto the Unraid server, generate the keys, then only copy the public one over to Freenas. I only needed one set of keys. this is my go file. I tried using Hoopster's but had some permission errors on my system. # Copy SSH files back to /root/.ssh folder and set permissions for files mkdir -p /root/.ssh cp /boot/config/sshroot/Server-rsync-key /root/.ssh/id_rsa cp /boot/config/sshroot/known_hosts /root/.ssh/known_hosts cat /boot/config/sshroot/Server-rsync-key.pub > /root/.ssh/authorized_keys chmod 700 /root/.ssh chmod 600 /root/.ssh/id_rsa chmod 600 /root/.ssd/known_hosts # chmod g-rwx,o-rwx -R /root/.ssh I have two IP addresses on my home internet account and a spare modem. I was able to plug my Freenas into a port on the back of that router, so i can Rsync between server and freenas over the internet in my room to test. I still am going to be going through the scripts and change the port for SSH, etc. Now i can work on something else, that took way too much of my time the last couple weekends. Thanks guys for all the help and support, sorry for being a pain in the ASS!
  9. thanks for that Ken-ji. I have it working with being able to reboot the Freenas server. this is the command I am working with right now moving some files over. rsync -avz --no-perms -e "ssh -i /root/.ssh/Server-rsync-key" /mnt/user/misc/Music/ root@ was having a few issues where sometimes i would do a test transfer and i would try to delete the files through windows explorer and it would say access denied, user 'nobody' needs to delete this. I would have to ssh in and run midnight commander as root to delete the files. going to leave it for the week and start on the renaming the key and rebooting unraid for next weekend. thanks a lot guys for the help. this is the hardest, stupidest thing i have ever had to do in my life
  10. hey guys, playing with this again, tried to run : rsync -avz --e ssh root@ /mnt/Volume1/DataSet1/Newtest from server to freenas and i get this error, i think i may have screwed up permissions on unraid. any way to reset them or is my syntax wrong? root@'s password: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)
  11. ya, i can't get this thing working. do both servers need to have the same keys in their directories? or are there different keys for each machine? does it matter what machine generates the keys? I will always just be going from my unraid server (host) to the freenas server (remote), not the other way. I seem to have some permissions or something werid going on, wasted another 2 hours last night and am no further ahead. I was going to setup OPENvpn client on Freenas but everyone said this is easier, so I switched my game plan. I don't know how a normal person does it, i see how it would be just too much. I am the goto computer guy for all my friends and family and just can't figure it out. Would be easier just setting up a pfsense box at my parents house with VPN
  12. Sorry tr0910, i forgot to mention the original hero that started it all, thanks man!! I will get this working.
