  1. On Android devices I use 'CalibreCompanion' or 'CCDemo' (trial/free version). Super handy app that makes connecting to Calibre a breeze.
  2. Noted, thank you so much. I'll look into it. I have other issues with my network so I'm just gutting it and starting from scratch to remove a couple years of duct tape and quick fixes. I will reference this when I redo it all.
  3. Bear with me as I'm not sure what Stubby is. Unless it's already baked into the docker image. I had the setting working fine for over a month pointing to my router, then it failed 2 days ago. I have tried setting it to the loopback addresses in the description of the image as a troubleshooting step to no avail.
  4. I am also having an issue with this container as of yesterday morning. -Using multiple VLANs on my network -One VLAN is using the piHole container for content filtering (kids network) -PiHole and pfSense are configured together to force all DNS queries on that VLAN to go through piHole then into pfSense. As of yesterday morning, with no visible changes, all DNS queries were lost on that VLAN. I monkied around with it for a couple hours and got it going again. This morning the same thing happened. I suspect there is a cron job or something happening at night causing this but I am not certain yet. The three symptoms I see are A) the piHole DNS service is not running. B) the docker is reported as 'unhealthy'. C) running pihole -r shows that the pihole itself cannot obtain DNS entries at this point, and that there is a kernel update available. If anyone has any pointers please let me know.
  5. Update: If I do NOT encrypt the virtual disk, I am able to run Pop_OS just fine. If anyone can educate me on how to get the VM to play nice with an encrypted drive, I would appreciate it.
  6. I will definitely take a look at nomachine, right now I am trying to find a good encrypted alternative to VNC, I have many linux hosts so RDP won't always work for me. But, after fiddling around with numerous settings I managed to fix my issues, thank you for pointing me in the right direction. @Limy have a great weekend! As I was changing settings in my firewall, updating rules, etc. I ran into another problem (which was entirely an oversight on my end, and managed to fix it). As I was troubleshooting this problem, I reset the state table on my firewall, which caused the lockups in both a virtual terminal running 'ping' endlessly, and my noVNC connection into my WIndows host (which makes sense because I killed the connections, but was eerily similar to the hangups that happened every 10-30 seconds before). So, I think my issue was related to how I had unRAID interact with my VLANs. I changed the IP address settings from 'Automatic' to 'None' on each VLAN. I am assuming that I was causing broadcast storms and/or cross communication which was seriously impacting my network performance (At least on unRaid), which would be reflected with both the VNC connections and virtual terminal. Since implementing this change (and others) I was able to completely eliminate my issues. **My only residual issue is trying to install Pop_OS! in a virtual machine. With or without GPU passthrough, after installing the operating system w/encryption I reboot the VM. I am presented with a lock screen, and after popping in the decrypt key, the machine hangs indefinitely. If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it. **I have every VM set up to CPU passthrough, not emulated. I'm not sure if this is a pro or con. [I understand the security risk involved of passing information between VMs, but I don't know of the CPU cost of emulating the processor, while searching for information I didn't find an answer]. I will be attempting to get the Pop VM set up today, so if I find a solution I will post here for posterity.
  7. @Limy Much appreciated, I'm happy to have the help. I changed some of my network settings, and I organized my pfSense rules to make changes a lot easier moving forward (assigned aliases, updates descriptions, etc.). Although I do not see an improvement on the terminal or VNC client locking up, I do feel as though my setup is much cleaner. I'm going to keep experimenting with the network settings, and see if I have to forward the VNC ports to my unRAID box or something to stop that from freezing. Thank you again for the information.
  8. Bump Although I've waited this long to post something, I've been dealing with more and more errors for the past 6 months and I just can't deal with it anymore. In an effort to troubleshoot my Plex VM I have to restart the VNC client every 20 seconds or so. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.
  9. I would like to lead off with a thanks for reading, and I will do my best to give all the information possible. Hardware: unRAID Version: 6.5.3 CPU: AMD 1700 Motherboard: Asrock Taichi x370 RAM: 2x16GB Dual-Channel Corsair LPX Vengence @3200mhz USB: Sandisk Cruzer 16GB, not sure how old (potentially the problem?)

I then have to manually disconnect and reconnect the connection before it freezes back up. I primarily use this on a Windows 10 VM that runs my Plex Media Server / mcebuddy / comskip combination that I use as a DVR. This happens when I use RealVNC AND when I use a different VNC client and connect to my server's IP:port assignment. My attempts at solutions: Try using another VNC client Change the VNC driver to every different setting Opening ports on my firewall to allow VNC on my server between VLANs. (I can try this one again, I may have set it up wrong) Replace aging disks in the array Adding an SSD cache with an old SSD drive Note: I also get a locked screen when I access the web terminal from the GUI, or ssh from a terminal. After a period of 10-30 seconds, the terminal hangs and I need to reboot it. My CentOS VM that has a GPU passthrough does NOT hang during this time. 2) When I install Pop!_OS into a virtual disk, I can get as far as encrypting the disk. After the image reboots, I get a black screen that is indefinite. I am unable to look at the specific logs for this VM. Any pointers would be helpful. (Happens with both a GPU passthrough or VNC). Other: I had this CPU overclocked to 4.0GHz with 1.3v offset up to 1.37v for a period of about 3 months. (Previously 3.6 at same voltage, but ran into thermal throttling. After upgrading the case and installed a Corsair H110i brought the clocks up). The temperature has stayed low this whole time and never got above 30-40C. CPU utilization could max at most 4c/8t, and the other 4c/8t at approx 50% I did this to improve the transcode times in my DVR VM, but have since set the BIOS to stock (except for changing the C6 state to disabled, and Virtualization to enabled, IOMMU enabled, as required for unRAID). I ran a memtest for 2 passes (just 1 complete pass overnight, didn't want to leave it running forever) with no errors found. The flash drive is a used drive from my collection, reformatted to use for unRAID about 3 years ago. I suspect the flash drive is the culprit because I have tried everything else that I could think of or google up myself. If anyone has any pointers it would be greatly appreciated.
