Rookie (2/14)



  1. It's far more likely that I don't understand how this container works, and whilst my IT knowledge is intermediate my understanding of networking (and dockers/linux) is pretty rudimentary so forgive me if I have totally got this wrong. I don't know if any of this is relevant, but I'll include it just in case. My setup is that I have PIA installed on my router. However traffic to my unraid server is routed outside the VPN tunnel as I only needed deluge to be included. My understanding was that this container polled PIA for a forwarded port and then fed that back to the settings/config of the deluge client so that the correct static port was listed. However, I thought that (as with the standard deluge client) I still needed to take that port and forward it on my router, so that is what I have been trying to do. When I do that if I go to to test my port using the external IP address in deluge, and the port provided by the container then the port shows as open. If I don't port forward on my router it appears to show as closed. Similarly, when I port forward on my router then I show as connectable on the private tracker but when I don't I show (after variable delay I must admit) as not-connectable. You are correct I did use the magnet link on ipleak, though I hadn't considered that it wasn't in the same tunnel. I'm not sure I follow why that makes a difference though as the torrent that is used as a reference for the port probe is within the VPN tunnel and the browser site just reports the results. I guess I don't need to understand it though - if you do, and tell me that the information can't be relied upon I'm happy to accept that.
  2. Just bumping this as I am still confused by this an hoping someone can help. If I don't port forward on my router then the port shows as closed and I am not connectable on the tracker. What am I doing wrong if port forwarding on my router isn't needed?
  3. Suddenly started working again without me doing anytrhing but I'll try this next time, thanks
  4. That's interesting, because unless I manually forward the port on my router it shows as closed. What do you mean by 'correctly using'? The container works fine, the log shows connected to PIA and gives a port which it maintains. As far as I can tell the VPN function is working OK - how else would I check it?
  5. Does anyone know of a way I can propagate port changes in the docker back to my router so I don't have to do it manually to maintain port forwarding with PIA? I'm running an ASUS AC86U with Merlin firmware. TIA
  6. I'm getting server disconnected (code 1006). Was working fine a couple of days ago, but now I can't seem to access the webUI. I had a look through the github docs and couldn't find anything that helps. Tried restarting the container but same result. Any suggestions?
  7. Ah, the Host path is me messing with different options to see if anything worked - thought I'd changed it back before I took the screenshot. Apparently not. For the config fille - what's all the gubbins about changing the path mean then? I thought I had just followed the instructions in the file itself. OK, having changed that it is now finding files! Thanks for working through that with me. The log is showing a new issue though: It still seems to be scanning and finding new files but that last line is just repeating ad infinitum.
  8. Just standard audio fomats - MP3 and a few FLAC. They are all in subfolders within MUSIC. In the log it states: "[2021/05/20 15:49:00] minidlna.c:670: error: Media directory "/mnt/user/MUSIC" not accessible [No such file or directory]" So, it is a problem with the share, but I don't understand what I need to change. This is my share: This is my docker config: and this is my config file: # port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) trafficport=8200 # network interfaces to serve, comma delimited #network_interface=eth0 # specify the useraccount name or uid to run asuser=nobody # set this to the directory you want scanned. # * if you want multiple directories, you can have multiple media_dir=lines # * if you want to restrict a media_dir to specific content types, you # can prepend the types, followed by a comma, to the directory: # + "A" foraudio (eg. media_dir=A,/home/jmaggard/Music) # + "V" for video (eg. media_dir=V,/home/jmaggard/Videos) # + "P" for images (eg.media_dir=P,/home/jmaggard/Pictures) # + "PV" for pictures and video (eg. media_dir=PV,/home/jmaggard/digital_camera) media_dir=A,/mnt/user/MUSIC # set this to merge all media_dir base contents into the root container # note: the default is no #merge_media_dirs=no # set this if you want to customize the name that shows up on your clients friendly_name=binhex-MiniDLNA # set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its database and album art cache db_dir=/config # set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its log file log_dir=/config # set this to change the verbosity of the information that is logged # each section can use a different level: off, fatal, error, warn, info, or debug #log_level=general,artwork,database,inotify,scanner,metadata,http,ssdp,tivo=warn # this should be a list of file names to check for when searching for album art # note: names should be delimited with a forward slash ("/") album_art_names=Cover.jpg/cover.jpg/AlbumArtSmall.jpg/albumartsmall.jpg/AlbumArt.jpg/albumart.jpg/Album.jpg/album.jpg/Folder.jpg/folder.jpg/Thumb.jpg/thumb.jpg # set this to no to disable inotify monitoring to automatically discover new files # note: the default is yes inotify=yes # set this to yes to enable support for streaming .jpg and .mp3 files to a TiVo supporting HMO enable_tivo=no # set this to beacon to use legacy broadcast discovery method # defauts to bonjour if avahi is available tivo_discovery=bonjour # set this to strictly adhere to DLNA standards. # * This will allow server-side downscaling of very large JPEG images, # which may hurt JPEG serving performance on (at least) Sony DLNA products. strict_dlna=no # default presentation url is http address on port 80 #presentation_url=http://www.mylan/index.php # notify interval in seconds. default is 895 seconds. notify_interval=900 # serial and model number the daemon will report to clients # in its XML description serial=12345678 model_number=1 # specify the path to the MiniSSDPd socket #minissdpdsocket=/var/run/minissdpd.sock # use different container as root of the tree # possible values: # + "." - use standard container (this is the default) # + "B" - "Browse Directory" # + "M" - "Music" # + "V" - "Video" # + "P" - "Pictures" # + Or, you can specify the ObjectID of your desired root container (eg. 1$F for Music/Playlists) # if you specify "B" and client device is audio-only then "Music/Folders" will be used as root #root_container=. # always force SortCriteria to this value, regardless of the SortCriteria passed by the client #force_sort_criteria=+upnp:class,+upnp:originalTrackNumber, +dc:title # maximum number of simultaneous connections # note: many clients open several simultaneous connections while streaming #max_connections=50 # set this to yes to allow symlinks that point outside user-defined media_dirs. #wide_links=no
  9. Working for me now. Does anyone know of a port checker plugin/dockerfor checking to see if the forwarded port is open? EDIT - answer to my question for anyone else that's interested - has a magnet link which checks the deluge client for the IP address and port, so there is no need for an Unraid based solution.
  10. Yes, the share is MUSIC Sorry, I'm confused by this - where do I enter that? Is that the Host Path 2 setting? Or do I set that to /mnt/user/MUSIC as above and set some other setting to /media?
  11. Thanks! I just checked my log and I have the same error. Turned off the VPN and my web GUI is back - so mine was a PIA issue. It looks like PIA is borked in the docker at the moment then
  12. I seem to have lost access to the docker GUI and not sure how to resolve it. Everything was working OK, but I recently got improved broadband so I was tweaking my preferences in the web GUI to reflect my better download/upload speeds. I reloaded the page but now the web GUI won't load, and I'm not sure what to do to get it back. I tried restarting the docker and rebooted unraid to see if that resolved it but no dice. The settings I changed in preferences were: Network extras - just enabled DHT and Peer exchange Bandwidth - changed max download and upload speeds; changed max hal-open connections Queue - changed total active, total active downloading and total active seeding, enabled do not count slow torrents That's it. I can't see how changing any of those would break it to the point I can't access the web GUI, so I can only assume it's just a coincidence and something else is afoot. Can anyone help me get the web GUI back? TIA EDIT: Thanks to Idaho121 below I know this is now a VPN issue associated with PIA not working
  13. I'm really struggling setting the config for this. My media is here: /mnt/user/MUSIC/ and I've set it to that within unraid and checked that minidnla.conf shows that too. It's not found anything though. What am I doing wrong? Thanks
  14. I've started suffering from OOM errors, not sure if anything has changed to trigger them but they have been an issue intermittently for the last few months. Sometime a reboot clears them and they disappear for a while. Can anyone help me resolve them? Thanks
  15. Hi all I logged on today to receive a warning about Out of Memory Errors in Fix Common Problems. I've not noted any issues with the server but thought I better be a good boy and do as I am told by posting my diagnostics on here. Can anyone advise me if I need to do anything? Cheers
