  1. Of course right after posting this I learn that my Putty is an ancient version. (There was actually two versions installed and the shortcut I used pointed to the older one.)
  2. SSH access to my server has been working fine. Today I can't login anymore. Putty gives me a fatal error saying "Couldn't agree a key exchange algorithm". I recently upgraded to Unraid 6.9.2. I don't use SSH so often so I can't be sure that that is the cause. I tried to search here and with google, but couldn't figure this out.
  3. I don't remember too well all the things what I tried. I wasn't (and I'm still not) too good with Linux. I think the GFX card was a factor why I din't get it to work. I'm now using a Geforce 710 card. After booting up Unraid I start the VM once so it grabs the display. When I shutdown the VM the monitor goes to power saving mode. So I have access to console (or GUI) only after server reboot. This allows troubleshooting if needed, e.g. when network isn't working. Other times I use SSH or webUI anyways. This has worked for me. About the second part of my original post: I
  4. Final update: The HD 7750s worked, but I could not find any logic in it. They worked both whether they were the primary or the secondary gfx card. Sometimes you got just one good VM launch. Sometimes more. And then on the next try just black screen. Then that gfx card didn't work until the server was rebooted. The secondary card was maybe a bit more co-operative. I ended up getting a GT710 and a GT1030.
  5. I decided to invest to a Google Nest Mini speaker. I can send a MQTT message from where I need and it triggers a script that plays the sound through the Nest Mini.
  6. I have a habit of deleting just the downloaded files after I have reviewed them, and leaving the torrent file to the torrent software. uTorrent (Windows) marked the files with error permanently. ruTorrent seems to mark them too, but if ruTorrent is restarted, it forgets the error state. It then looks like the torrent has never been downloaded. This leads to unnecessary redownloads. Is there a workaround?
  7. In my case, I needed to limit access to a directory that is a few levels down from the share top. Yes I could have moved it to its own share, but that is not its logical place. I tried to use ACL but didn't have enough skillz. What I ended up doing, was that I made my user the owner of the directory with +rwx rights, I gave +w rights to group as a certain program needs to be able to write to that directory, and -rwx to other. This isn't perfect. I think, technically, the blocked user is able to write and delete files from the directory. But in my case it's enough to keep out family
  8. Have you tried following the guides listed at the end of this page https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2 ? In one of those guides it says: File Path is the place where you should type something/anything, meaningful to you like “authFile”. The plugin will create a file with that name and inside the file, it will store your encrypted Amazon credentials. This is needed because otherwise it will ask you to re-login every time you re-deploy your Node-RED flow. So you should only put a filename in it, not a full path. Maybe.
  9. How familiar are you with Linux file and directory structure? /mnt/user/appdata/nodered is the host directory. ./ is the directory itself. ../ is the parent directory (in this case /mnt/user/appdata). If you want to look things from the container's point of view, you need to load the container and then start a shell in it with docker command (docker <somethingsomething>). Sorry, I'm not that familiar with the docker command. In general, I believe, all files under appdata should belong to nobody:users (99:100). Have you tried that? Looking at my own appdata/nodered files: all
  10. I think you need to use the container directory. /mnt/user/appdata/nodered is the host directory that the container directory is mapped to. You can see the container directory from the docker settings. It's probably /data .
  11. I have a zigbee switch that sends out a magic packet with the VM's mac address.
  12. So, there¨s a docker image called MQTT and Mosquitto. What's the difference and which one I should be using?
  13. Well, that would have been easy... but no. Beep works in Unraid console. But in the container I get "beep: can't open console". I remembered that I have cheap unused USB speakers somewhere. But is that also a no because no drivers?
  14. I need to make a pc speaker beep or other noise from inside a docker container (Node-red). How would I do that? A cheap external speaker or something is a possibility also.
  15. I want to restrict access from a user to certain sub-directories in a share. My share is called "share1" and in that share I have directories labelled dir1, dir2, dir3. I have added users called "user1" and "user2" to Unraid. "user1" and "user2" are also Win10 usernames. I want everyone including "user2" to have access to "share1", but only "user1" should have access to dir3. I tried to google it and I tried setfacl, but it's not working.
