  1. I posted too fast. One can define a set OpenVPN IP by using a custom .ovpn configuration file. The procedure to do so is very clearly detailed by the author here: https://github.com/qdm12/gluetun/wiki/Openvpn-file. @biggiesize, if I may: how about adding a choice like "other/custom" in the dropdown menu for the "VPN_SERVICE_PROVIDER" variable in your docker container template, as well as adding the variable "OPENVPN_CUSTOM_CONFIG" right after, with a nice little description such as "OPTIONAL if you selected 'other/custom' in the 'VPN_SERVICE_PROVIDER' list above, please enter here the path to the .ovpn configuration file that Gluetun should use. https://github.com/qdm12/gluetun/wiki/Openvpn-file" ? Best, OP
  2. Hi @biggiesize, Many thanks for your contribution. I would like to test your docker container and maybe use it as a "VPN gateway" that other "non-VPN capable" docker containers could use as "network", and therefore benefit from the VPN tunnel (with the proper port redirections made with the VPN service provider). Is there anyway I can set a particular OpenVPN server IP for the Gluetun VPN client to use ? Best, OP PS: Oh, and I forgot : congratulations for all the details provided in the Unraid docker container template. There is some very useful information and I which all docker container templates were as detailed as yours.
  3. I have exactly the same issue (parity check after each normal reboot/shutdown via the WebGUI, syslog saying "unclean shutdown", etc.). This also started to happen right after i updated from 6.8.3 to 6.9.2. I will try the fix provided in this thread but I think @limetech could maybe consider a fix in the next version. Best, OP UPDATE 1: changing "Settings > disk settings > shutdown timeout" from 90 to 120 seems to have fixed the issue for me.

  7. Hi, Since the OpenVPN Server plugin by @peter_sm, and the OpenVPN-AS docker container by @linuxserver.io are no longer available (as of august 2021), I thought it might be useful to some of you to know how to manually install an OpenVPN server on your Unraid machine. Using the Wireguard VPN which is now included in Unraid is of course an option but you may want to stick with OpenVPN for many reasons. The method below: was tested (and works) on Unraid 6.8.3 and 6.9.2; assumes that you already have (or know how to setup) an openvpn .ovpn configuration file for your server (and clients); assumes that you already have (or know how to create) the SSL certification authority certificate, SSL server certificate, RSA keys and diffie hellman key which are required by your openvpn .ovpn configuration fileq; [Note: I personally use XCA to create and manage all my certificates and keys; tutorials on how to create the certificates and keys with XCA can be found here on YouTube for example.] assumes that you know how to setup your router to forward the ports required for you OpenVPN server to work; allows you to run OpenVPN even if the array is stopped (this is useful if your array is encrypted and does not automatically start on boot). STEP 1: ADD THE OPENVPN PACKAGE TO THE UNRAID BOOT DRIVE 1.1. Grab the openvpn-2.4.8-x86_64-1.txz package for Slackware. Note: I have not been able to find this version on the Slackware website but I was able to grab that package from my previous install of the OpenVPN Server plugin. I have attached it to this post, but please share any link to an official download if you find one. 1.2. Copy it to the /boot/extra/ directory on the Unraid boot drive. Note: Packages in this folder are installed upon boot. STEP 2: ADD THE OPENVPN CONFIGURATION FILES AND ASSOCIATED CERTIFICATES, KEYS AND FILES TO THE UNRAID BOOT DRIVE 2. Copy your OpenVPN configuration file and associated certificates, keys and files to the /boot/config/user-files/openvpn/ directory on the Unraid boot drive. Note: These files include the following, depending on your configuration: server.ovpn or client.ovpn, dh.pem, ca.cert, server.crt, ta.key (if you use TLS for authentication), crl.pem (if you use a certificate revocation lists), ipp.txt (if you use manual IP assignment) STEP 3: EDIT THE "GO" FILE ON THE UNRAID BOOT DRIVE 3.1. Edit the /boot/config/go file on the Unraid boot drive by adding the following at the end of the file: # ############# # Start OpenVPN (beginning) # ############# # Start OpenVPN - 1. Set variables NETWORK="" # OpenVPN server IP network CIDRSUFFIX="24" # OpenVPN server IP network CIDR suffix, without the "slash" OPENVPNCONFIGPATH="/boot/config/user-files/openvpn/" # Path to openvpn configuration files on USB drive, with the trailing "slash" # Start OpenVPN - 2. Copy OpenVPN configuration and cert files mkdir -p /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}server.ovpn" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}dh.pem" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}ca.crt" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}server.crt" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}server.key" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}ta.key" /etc/openvpn/ cp "${OPENVPNCONFIGPATH}ipp.txt" /etc/openvpn/ # Start OpenVPN - 3. Create tun device mkdir -p /dev/net if [ ! -c /dev/net/tun ]; then mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200 fi modprobe tun echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward # Start OpenVPN - 4. Run OpenVPN mkdir -p /var/run/openvpn/ sudo -H -u root openvpn --writepid /var/run/openvpn/openvpn.pid --config /etc/openvpn/server.ovpn --script-security 2 --daemon # Start OpenVPN - 5. Add IP tables NIC=$(ip -4 route ls | grep default | grep -Po '(?<=dev )(\S+)' | head -1) echo $NIC IPRULES1="iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s $NETWORK/$CIDRSUFFIX -o $NIC -j MASQUERADE" eval $IPRULES1 iptables -t nat -L POSTROUTING -n -v --line-numbers | grep $NETWORK # ############# # Start OpenVPN (end) # ############# 3.2. Adjust the above to your own use case Note: For exemple, you will need to change the NETWORK and CIDR variables according to the IP address and network mask that are set in the server.ovpn configuration file. STEP 4: REBOOT AND CHECK THAT THE SERVER IS WORKING 4.1. Reboot your Unraid machine. 4.2. Check that OpenVPN is running by executing this command: ifconfig tun0 4.3. Try to connect to your OpenVPN server with a client. Note: I recommend adding the following lines to your .ovpn config file to help troubleshooting any potential issues: status /var/log/openvpn-status.log 5 log-append /var/log/openvpn.log I hope this helps.

  8. This is some real bad news. The MotionEye and Virt-Manager docker containers are important to me. I am sorry that your work got screwed by DockerHub's new policy @dee31797.
  9. Is this what you are looking for ? https://web.archive.org/web/20210127070720/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/petersm1/openvpn_client_x64/master/openvpn_client_x64.plg
  10. Oh my. This is some really bad news as far as I am concerned. I heavily rely on the possibility to have en OpenVPN server running on Unraid (not the OpenVPN-server-AS docker container). Is there any way I can backup the plugin from my machine where it is already installed so that I can reinstall it in case I need to ?
  11. No, not yet. I am planning on doing another test when I upgrade to Unraid v6.9.x (I am currently running v 6.8.3), or when I change my CPU (I am planning to maybe upgrade to a Xeon E3 1275v6 or the like one of these mornings).
  12. You can also check out the no_ransom script by @binhex to add an extra layer of security on your files. If practicable with your use case, I also recommend accessing the files hosted by Unraid with a user having only "read-only" access, and using a user with read/write access only when you strictly need to.
  13. Well, as stated, I don't want to delete any file, I want to wipe the free space. So shred is not a solution. But thank you anyway. Op
