  1. Requests were invited. First page, second post: "If you have any wishes for gameservers please write it here in this topic or send me a private message." Though you are absolutely correct, the polite thing to do would be to supply a copy of the game in question if required at bare minimum.
  2. Ahh, totally understandable. Wine is more workaround than solution, totally with you on avoiding it.
  3. This is really cool, thank you for doing this! Might I request one for Space Engineers?
  4. Not a joke, just a dumb idea. Possibly having dockers on it? I didn't get far enough to figure out any use, just wanted to play with things to see what I can do with it. Sorry if you wasted your time, though I pretty clearly labeled my dumb idea as what it is.
  5. Well, I have no idea how to get it to let me select an image, hence why I'm asking I guess I'm thinking along the lines of 'Linux can do anything I know how to make it do', but I know next to nothing about Linux (yet (working on it (eventually))), so asking stupid questions and hoping for a miracle is all I got.
  6. Hello again everyone, and welcome to another defective issue, from the cheapskate owner of defective hardware. Since I seem to have inherited the unraid box I set up ages ago, but don't have a use for anymore, I'm playing around and doing silly things with it. So what's todays silly thing? I'm wondering if it's possible to have a disk image, saved to the USB drive that unraid is booting from, mounted and accessible as part of the array. Yes, I'm fully aware that this is a bad idea for a whole list of reasons, one of the big ones being the lifespan impact on the USB drive. The drive I'm stuck with at the moment is only 8GB, USB 2.0, and not high performance at that. It'll almost certainly run badly. I don't even have any solid plans as to what to do with another 6GB of array storage, unless I set it up as a "portable" server, running basic tasks on any computer, without having to lug around a pile of metal bricks. So, stupid of an idea as I have here, is it possible with unraid?
  7. Thank you very much. I have been looking into NoMachine in between poking at noVNC, and it certainly does seem appealing, for more than just my unRAID VMs. Thanks to you wonderful people, I have been pointed in the right direction to fix my issues. Knowing that the issue was very specifically with noVNC was key here. I feel rather silly now, knowing what the solution was. Turned out to be my browser cookies. I don't know how to dissect what actually happened, but after clearing my cookies, noVNC is working again. My guess is that something in the cookies bound to the installation of unRAID, meaning that my new trial, on the same IP address (that was probably a big mistake), was finding invalid cookies, leading to the " sent no valid HTTP/1.0 header" error. I still have much to learn about networking, this has been a stern reminder of that. Thank you all again for all your help. I will update the main post to indicate that this issue is solved, and now go figure out what happened with my license purchase.
  8. I have installed TightVNC viewer on my workstation, and it does indeed connect when I point it at 5900. Thank you very much. This is a workable situation, though, obviously, I would still like the noVNC web client to connect. The license is currently a financial hardship. I do not foresee my present situation lasting longer than the lifespan of a lightly used, high quality flash drive. I will get it sorted, I am just currently directing my attention to being able to use unRAID for what I bought it for, as the server does run. I would like to point out that I have been actively discouraging discussion of my licensing issues, as I do not see it as being important to my VMs, since the server shows clearly as being registered. Thank you all very much for your help. I am especially impressed with how quickly I received help. This is a vast different from my previous experiences with forums.
  9. Is this to mean that I could install some VNC client and connect using port 5900? I was not aware of that. I have only been using the browser VNC access, as this was all I was aware of in terms of my options, other than installing some other software to the guest system.
  10. I am not sure i understand this correctly. Is this something I can use to access a VM that has never been accessed before? I cannot get into them at all, and have only been using VNC as it is the default, and, despite the dropdown menu, only, method of connecting using the WebUI. While I certainly do appreciate the help with the licensing issues, I only mentioned that to give any and all relevant information. I am led to believe that flash drives running unRAID last in excess of 5 years for a high quality drive, so do not see this as an issue requiring attention at this time. In any case, I like unRAID enough that I would be willing to abandon this license and purchase a new one, provided I can afford it, simply to support Lime Tech. I am a firm believer in voting with my money.
  11. Thanks for replying. I do not have access to the email address that unRAID seems to have bound itself to, so everything will come screeching to a halt at step 5. This isn't currently an issue, as I should hope to be able to afford a new key by the time my flash drive dies.
  12. This issue has been solved. Turned out to be only noVNC what was not connecting, and it was due to invalid browser cookies. Clearing my cookies was the solution. Using a standalone VNC client connected without issue. I would like to thank everyone who helped. I would not have been able to figure this out without them, which makes me feel quite silly. ORIGINAL POST: Ok, so, first, I have an admission. I used unRAID as a trial for the full duration, then started a second trial on a new flash drive, but booting the same array. The reason I did this is that the purchase price of unRAID basic is roughly 1.5x a weeks pay for me, so it wasn't easy to save up enough. I have now purchased unRAID, though the purchase was badly bungled, the key is in my server, everything is activated and fine, I'm just screwed if I need to change flash drive at all, ever. That all aside, onto the real issue: On my first trial of unRAID, everything worked great, no issues whatsoever. On my second trial of unRAID, VMs stopped working correctly. They appear to start and run just fine, but the VNC remote simply doesn't connect. I have noticed that the VNC port for the first VM I start is 5900, but the VNC remote is trying to connect to 5700. Manually changing this to 5900 does not help, it still does not connect. I held off seeking support for this issue until after I had purchased unRAID. I now own an unRAID license, and the issue persists. The issue occurs on all VMs that I have tried. This includes Windows sever, pfSense, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Knoppix, VyOS, and various other Linux distros. While writing this post, I decided to take a look at the log. I am not too good with Linux yet, so this makes little to no sense to me, but there was a standout (highlighed in colour) log entry(s) when attempting to connect to the VNC remote.

Haven't bothered yet, as all I can really think of to show is me attempting to connect and it failing, which shows basically no information. Other information to note; My "server" is an old Acer laptop with a faulty mainboard. Specifically, when an OS loads nVidia drivers, it causes kernel panic, on all OS's, with all nVidia drivers. The nVidia graphics is disabled in BIOS now, to prevent any accidents. All display is handled by the Intel graphics. This laptop does not appear to support any virtualization extensions. There are no relevant settings in the BIOS. I have 2 drives, both 750GB. 1 of which is mounted in the optical drive bay, using an adapter. The second drive was added to the array during the second trial. I did not attempt to load any VMs before adding it. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea where to even start in fixing this, and attempts to search for a solution online have not lead anywhere.
