  1. Sorry about that. I was referring to the dual network card. Which I'm going to send back and eventually get the switch box that you showed me. I've heard of that product, pretty good Might be better because I use a cheap little switch for Xbox, tv etc. I can plug everything into that. Are they quite? Amazon Canada sold out right now. Other question, if I plug directly from my single 10 gig network card to the isp modem.( Bell Hub 4000), does the network card have to be the first selection in the Unraid network settings or should it be the 1 gig connection? Any other settings that need to be changed? Thanks for showing me the switch, should have did that in the first place.. Lol
  2. Sorry, my main goal is to be able to transfer files faster between my desktop and unraid. The plan was to utilize the 10 gig port on my isp modem, which would go directly to the server. Then use the other nic port to run it to the desktop. As I'm typing this I'm thinking I might just forget about the desktop. My separate backups are going to be created on the unraid server so the large files won't have to go far. I have a about 25 tb of media files that I need to create a backup for in case unraid crashes a few drives. I doubt I'm going to move those type of file sizes to the desktop. Would be nice to have the connection there just in case. I think i can live without it. I do like that switch you sent me, and not that pricey. I might consider that. Need one with at least 3 10 gig ports. I use cat7 cabling. I really appreciate your help and input. Thank you.
  3. Hi, Just going over your notes. I think the simplest for me might be getting a 10 gig switch plug it into modem, plug unraid and my desktop into the switch. What do you think? Any recommendations for a switch?
  4. Thanks very much for your input. I will look over the suggestions and see what I can make work. Networking with Unraid is not something I'm good at. LOL
  5. Hi Everybody. I wanted to save one of my PCIE slots for a sata card so I bought a 2 port 10G network card for transferring files.. I think it works, but I don't think I'm configuring it right in Unraid. When I tried it, my dockers with custom ips for Br0 were unavailable. I had the following: Enable bonding: No Enable Bridging Yes Bridging members of br0: I selected Eth0, Eth1, Eth2 Under Interface Rules My main Eth0 was first, followed by the other 2, which I didn't realize it read each port separate on the the card. I had 2 single ones between my desktop and unraid before. Maybe that caused some issues. Any help would be appreciated. This card mentions running in a x8 slot, can it run in a x4 slot? Really doesn't matter going to use the x4 for for my sata card. When I link the 2 systems together with the cards, does it hurt to leave the 1 gig internet plugged in on the desktop? I've always unplugged it. Thank you! ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. - ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core @ 4 GHz
  6. Hi, Looking for a 10 gig dual port jr45 card. Is this type of card any good? I have a couple Asus XG-C100C 10G Network Adapter PCI-E x4 Card with Single RJ-45 Port. They work pretty good just plugged them in. Can't just buy another one. Unfortunately they don't sell dual port. It will be going in a x4 pcie slot. Thanks Randy
  7. Hi Guys, Thank you both very much for your input. I forgot about doing this stupid me, I ended up putting 443 after the ip and it got me in. I had to tinker with the network settings a few times and a couple reboots but the ip is static and stable. I can get in, but the main page doesn't want to use SSL with letsencrypt, as I'm typing this I probably have to update it. Main page is just showing ip and unsecure. Thanks again..
  8. Hi Everybody, I changed to a Bell Fiber line. My ip use to be 192.168.1.x.x Now it is a .2.x.x. I deleted the network.cfg & network-rules and rebooted, but both times I did this I got the same ip. I can see the new ip in Unraid when it boots up. It just says ip6 is not set, which as far as I know doesn't matter. I can also see my server in the Windows network, I can access the unraid folders. I can even turn dockers on an off with my phone. I just can't access the WebUI. I have cleared the browser history. I have a direct cat7 cable to the 10 Gig port on the Hub. Any ideas? I'm wonder if I should boot unraid with no plugins or dockers. I have all of the dockers shutoff. Thank you.
  9. Update: I think it is Cyberghost draining my internet connections for some reason. I have 1gig down and 30up. As soon as NZBget starts downloading I start losing my internet. Not sure what to think at this point.
  10. Hi, Very strange situation going on I can’t figure it out. I used the reset button on the ISP box, and rebooted the devices to see if it fixed the problem. Nope. Running Xpenology as a VM in Unraid. VPN Server is not on. I left all settings default when I connected Cyberghost. I have Cyberghost connected following these instructions. FYI: No kill switch in place. Here’s the problem, when I start the VM up now with the apps running it lasts about 20-30 minutes then I lose my internet. Before it quit I was able to login to the VM. I have given the VM 4 Cores – 6G Ram Router is bridged with the ISP box. In Xpenology I have the following: Sonarr Raddarr NZBGET All from Xpenology community apps. The desktop pulls its internet from the server through a 10 Gig network card. Is it possible the VM is corrupted? It still shouldn’t shut the internet down should it? I could see if Cyberghost had a kill switch., The other strange thing is I can’t reach Plex from the browser anymore, but it’s working. I’m thinking maybe the drive that the VM is on is starting to go, or the ISP box has a conflict. I can’t access it at moment password they gave me doesn’t work. Everything runs fine until I turn the VM on. I will try an update on the router tonight. Could be a DNS issue, not sure what is causing it. Any ideas? Thank you.
  11. Hi, Sorry, never noticed this post. I ended up using an Asus x470 board with a Ryzen 12 core CPU. Thanks for the input.
  12. Hi, Not sure if this is possible with Wireguard, but I've been looking at other vpn alternatives because the VPN keeps shutting down the internet instead of just shutting down the dockers. I have Openvpn, Nordvpn with Merlin Firmware on my Asus RT Ac5300. I have Sonarr, Radarr and NZBget attached to it on their own. Is this type of setup possible with WireGuard and Cyberghost? I just moved to Cyberghost. Does anybody have this type of setup and how did you do it? Thank you.
  13. Hi Everybody, Trying to get Qutscloud installed as a vm, there's a few apps I liked when I owned a Qnap. Anybody have any success installing this? What settings and VM template did you use? Thank you.
  14. Hi, I have my router bridged with my iISP box. Internet speed is 360mbps down, 30 up. I have setup a 10 gig connect between my Unraid server and my deskstop for transferring a little faster. In general it does work., obviously not going to get great speeds but it is better then it was. I was having network issues and discovered that my ip had changed which was ok, but I also discovered that the bridge connection was not active on the iSP box. After fixing that I did a speed test and the desktop speed test was only 94 mbps down which is slow for my internet speed. I'm assuming this is because I have desktop linked directly to the server for its internet with the network card. Is there a way to fix the speed? Here's the setup Both have these network cards Server has a direct line from the Asus RT AC5300 for internet Server an desktop are both connected by the network cards using cat8 cabling. Desktop Specs Processor AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Eight-Core Processor 3.40 GHz Installed RAM 32.0 GB Server ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. - ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING Processor:AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core @ 4 GHz 32G Ram I have attached A file that shows the active connection. 2 files that show the Unraid settings. Any ideas is appreciated. Stay safe and thank you.
  15. Sorry, switched to Nzbget and solved the issue. Not sure exactly what broke Sab.
