  1. Right now I don't use any of them, I just have a Netgear Orbi router with some DNS filtering. It has also an option to enable Armor which is made by Bitdefender, if I really want to have some extra protection. My Sophos VM had a issue with the registration not being updated and I was supposed to reinstall it, but I was too lazy... I did a few trial runs for pfsense, but it wasn't really my taste. Too much configuration for very little outcome and the web interface was horrible. In the end, without a good IDS&IPS no firewall is very helpful and I think the best ones are the commercial ones if you really need that type of protection; plus you need to invest time to actually check the logs and fix all the small issues that seems to occur almost weekly, if not daily.
  2. That was part of a an example of a working XML. You must remove the virtual NICs and use the pass-through ones.
  3. I think it's better to keep Armor enabled and to remember when it's doing the vulnerability test you'll get the warning.
  4. You can use virt-manager from linux or a virt-manager docker, if you're running mac or windows, and all your XML changes will remain when making hardware changes.
  5. If it's the main graphic card (the one that displays the unraid boot sequence) you'll always need it. This is my case also.
  6. I like how easy is to create VMs. I'd like to see KVM/QEMU with virtio-gpu virgl support.
  7. Q35 is under machine type, below the memory size and it has to be chosen instead of i440fx. It will be best to create a new VM from scratch and choose Q35 and reinstall Windows. Reusing the old VM is still possible by manually choosing the old VM's vdisk.
  8. Have you tried to use http://kb.macrium.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50005.aspx?Keywords=VHD and then convert the VHD to IMG with something like qemu-img convert -f vpc -O raw lamp-3-x86.vhd lamp.raw ?
  9. I'm also using Legacy Mode, because with the UEFI it never worked properly. Also the vbios is required for me to actually show the image before fully loading the OS...
  10. "Summary Add emulation of the ICH9 host chipset as an alternative to the current I440FX emulation. This will allow for better support of PCI-E passthrough since ICH9 uses a PCI-E bus whereas the I440FX only supports a PCI bus." from https://wiki.qemu.org/Features/Q35 You can read more in forum, but this is a good post I also have an AMD graphic card and I have seen a lot of your issues.
  11. This is just to confirm the fix is working properly in your case.
  12. Use virt-manager on linux or djaydev/docker-virt-manager, you can find it under Apps.
  13. For me, when a VM gets stuck at Tianocore it usually after a force stop of a VM and the graphic card remaining in an unknown power state. My only way to recover is to power down the server, then power it up and the VM with passthrough graphic card will start properly. Try that and see how it goes...
  14. After more testing it seems the option "Local gateway uses NAT: Yes" is the problem. If you choose "No" the docker works properly and it seems that I can still connect through Wireguard to my server
