    Everyone can access that address, so it's good to set a password and/or activate fail2ban or other security measures.

    Do not leave any services open if you reverse proxy them.

    thanks for the response.  i guess i will have to look into this further.  Someone would have to guess the address first thought i guess.  i might just turn off the reverse proxy on a few things.

  2. hey guys, great forum.  Just bought a domain to use with my server.  Basically just using Letsencrypt to access Sonarr, Radarr, Nextcloud.  Do i need to buy Positive SLL from Namecheap?  i already did as i didn't know any better. I will never be running a website, etc.. just using it for domain name and custom email.  Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Hey guys just set this up with Unraid + Sonarr + Sab + Plex.   Everything works except it doesn't grab automatically, i have to click the automatic search, then it downloads and puts it into Plex.  How do i make it grab automatically?

  4. with 2 pfsense boxes, you can to server/client or peer to peer.  I am looking to do peer to peer.  That way everything on my network is available to everything on the other network.  Right now i can access the server admin page and the shares but none of the other computers on the other side of the tunnel.  Also, when i am connected to the tunnel, i can no longer see my own unraid on my side of the tunnel.  I think i am just going to buy another pfsense router and do it that way.

  5. hey guys, didn't search the thread but wondering about downloading files.


    i installed nextcloud and also the app on my phone.  I added external shares to Nextcloud.  I can see them all but when i try to download a file to my phone, it just puts a green tick beside it, then nothing happens, then i can't even select download again.


    Any ideas?

  6. 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!

  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 :)
