  1. googling unraid.net usb 3.0 to ethernet adapter found this https://forums.unraid.net/topic/80497-support-usb-ethernet-dongle/ So there is at least one that worked...
  2. Why do you need to know the permissions of the files on the Unraid server? Unraid should be controlling the type/extent of access to the files in Shares when you are using either NFS or SMB. And those permissions don't make a lot of sense from the standard Linux OS permissions perspective. If there is a access issue to files on the server from your PC, the file/directory permissions on the server will often be checked-- to make sure some Linux process (running on the Unraid server) has not screwed things up! But you have to do that more from the command line running as root than directly from a file manager on a PC. (That is because the Unraid Share service layer is hiding them from you.) You made the change from Win10 to Fedora. (I assume fairly recently.) Did you actually read whatever Documentation that they have provided on networking? Hopefully, it will contain the answers you are looking for and give you some inside into how the underlying things work. You may have found some 'gotcha' in Fedora. (With Win10 and SMB, the Collective has figured things pretty well out. Most of the 'gotchas'-- and their workarounds-- are now known...) PS--- By the way, Windows has a 'service' where it will automatically log you onto a server. (That can cause all manner of problems.) Windows also limits you to a single connection/login to SMB on a server. These are often the types of things you have to be looking for...
  3. Why don't you see what happens if you create a Share that is 'Public' and not 'Private'? This would be to see what happens when we are not adding the confusion of being denied access because of 'credentials issue' (bad user_name/password) or some problem. (By the way, root is not allowed as a user to access SMB shares. I am not sure about NFS shares.)
  4. I am not using Linux in a PC setting. What I would like to suggest is that you modify your first post to indicate the Linux distribution (Fedora) that you are using in the title of this thread. Hopfully, Someone will jump in and provide some assistance. OF course, you can always try SMB as there are lot more people familiar with its use than NFS. (I am under the impression that SMB is now generally preferred in the Linux world over NFS because of SMB pervasive presence in the networking world.)
  5. How are your trying to access the files on the server? Are you using NFS or SMB? I suspect your problems are not with the Unraid server but with the Fedora PC.
  6. Write a message using this page: https://unraid.net/contact Be sure to include as much detail about your original purchase as possible including the E-mail address that you used to order it. LimeTech is quite good with their customer support if you ask them in a reasonable manner.
  7. The Realtek should be fine. IF you want max write performance, you should be looking at bigger 7200rpm drives. (Higher bit density means faster read/write speed.) Again, avoid shingled drives for max write performance. Shingled drives are common with drives of 8TB or larger but there may be a few 6TB shingled drives. Many folks look for the 'sweet spot' by calculating the cost-per-TB.
  8. Pretty much anything works. Just stick with the better known names and recent hardware. (Exception is the recommended LSI SAS/SATA cards) If you are looking at running a VM, be sure to read the VM sections in both the update guide and the manual for the current version 6. Hardware is bit more restrictive depending on how close you want to get to the 'bare metal' experience.
  9. Look here for a WIKI on how to use this feature: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/46802-faq-for-unraid-v6/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-781601
  10. This can be caused by the RFS file system used with 4.7 if the drives are nearly full. Sorry but there is no fix for this problem except to convert to another file system. (Basically, the fix is copy the data from one of the RFS drives to a new drive with one of the new formats. Format that old RFS drive to a new format and repeat with the next RFS drive.)
  11. Here are the hardware requirements: I would recommend at least 4GB of RAM. Some folks have had problems updating from one version to the next version with only 2GB of RAM. (Updates now happen much quicker because of security patches required for those using VM's and Dockers.)
  12. You may be able to minimize this behavior by right clicking on the Share in Windows Explorer. Select Properties (at the bottom on the List). Open the Customize tab. Select General items from the dropdown list and check the 'Also apply this template to all subfolders'. Click Apply and OK out of the box.
  13. So I assume that you purchased the bottom of the line when you got the HP CP1025 and it has absolutely no networking capability. (My advice would never do this again unless you want a printer that is only going to used by the computer to which it is connected.) To be brutally honest, there is virtually no demand for there to be any printer server capability for Unraid. Setting up and using a networked-ready printer is so much easier. The printer manufacturers have provided all the required drivers for virtually any device that connect to a network can print to their printer connected to that network. You might be better server by looking for a dedicated printer server. Here is a link to a search that I did on Amazon for such devices: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=printer+server&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 I know that a few years ago such devices were quite commonly used before built-in networking became virtually a feature in every printer. (Expect those printers that are cheaper than the replacement toner/ink cartridges.) Personally, I prefer to use Ethernet over Wireless but to each his own on that point.
  14. What are you trying to do? Where is the printer? What applications do you want to print from?
  15. First question, How did you create the Diagnostics file when you did the above action? (GUI, SSH or console) Where did you find this Diagnostics file that you attached in this post? (This is a bit of a loaded question as there are only two possible answers to this question! Either in the Downloads folder/directory for your PC Web Browser -or- in the logs folder/directory of the Unraid boot drive.)
