I'm getting same error "Unable to connect to backup.unraid.net:22".  I don't see anythign obviously wrong anywhere in my firewall.

 

Its appearing more and more to be a system wide problem not a per server problem. Limetech is investigating this.

Hey Everyone, thanks for reporting the issue with "Unable to connect to backup.unraid.net:22". The server side problem has been resolved, but we are still working on a plugin update to better handle the situation when the backup can't connect to our cloud server.

 

If you are currently getting the "Unable to connect to backup.unraid.net:22" message, then as a quick fix right now, you might consider rebooting your server. That should allow it to connect and start backing up again. 

 

If it is inconvenient to reboot, you can open a web terminal and type:

/etc/rc.d/rc.flash_backup stop

This will stop the backup process and prevent it from filling up your logs until we release the updated plugin.

I just got this working today - I haven't tinkered with it before now.  I am wondering about the remote access.  I currently have a forward setup in my firewall for the use of reverse proxy using SWAG.  How would I be able to forward this traffic to enable the Unraid.net side of things?  can I dictate the WAN port? when I try it fails and tells me to use 443.  or can I forward the traffic based on where its coming from(unraid)? anyone else run into this?

Go to Settings -> Management Access and set the local HTTPS port to a value that works for you. If 443 is already in by swag, try 4443 or something along those lines that is not already in use by a docker.

 

Then go to Settings -> Management Access -> My Servers and set the WAN port to the port you want to use from outside your house. Do not use 443, a high random number like 43189 is better.

Thanks ljm42 it looks like it worked.  I figured that's how it was to work with the given fields, for some reason it kept bouncing it.

I tested the new feature and I have a problem. Server appears as online in webUI of UnRAID but offline in "my servers" section of unraid website. I have to type "unraid-api restart" in order to make it work. And after some hours, problem appear again.

For the flash backup I created a User.Script and scheduled it to use the Daily cron settings and then shuts off.

 

Utility-Backup-Flash

#!/bin/bash

echo "Start Flash Backup"
/etc/rc.d/rc.flash_backup start

sleep 10m

echo "Stop Flash Backup"
/etc/rc.d/rc.flash_backup stop

 

So basically it starts the Flash Backup and tries to connect. If it connects then fine it connects. If it fails it tries every minute on my machine, but I'm giving it 10minutes of trying then it shuts off.

A BIG NOGO!!!

What happend?

I lost my inet-connection and WAMM! NO ACCESS TO MY UNRAID-SERVER over my LAN! What the Heck?

How can i revert this back so i can reach my server over the "internal" IP again?

I am not amused!

This is a BIG NOGO!

 

EDIT: Found the solution - server reachable again over his internal IP... pffffff 🙄

True SSL support requires a Fully Qualified Domain Name such has yourpersonalhash.unraid.net. If your Internet goes down and DNS is not available there is a workaround, see: https://wiki.unraid.net/My_Servers#How_to_access_your_server_when_DNS_is_down

I tried this "https://ipaddress:port" but... not working...
So i disabled SSL and done
Glad you're back up and running! If you ever try it again show me a screenshot shot of "not working" and we can probably get past it.

Not working means, that the Browser or something else converted the HTTPS-String back into the FQDN.

Strange and boring... that was the reason i desabled SSL.

I can reproduce this "error" by enabling SSL again.

When i try to put in the https and IP string, it will be immediately coverted into the FQDN.

If you use http://ipaddress:port then by design it will redirect to the correct SSL URL.

But if you use https://ipaddress:port (note https not http) then a redirect is not possible. Instead the browser will warn that the url doesn't match the certificate. Once you ignore that warning you will be able to access the site.

I know the difference between http and https - i tried "https://ipaddress:443" and this was "not" working...

Or is your software maybe using a different port, and not 443?

EDIT: Tried it again and it was working... exactly 1x - and now, not working 🤣

Anyway - removing SSL is working 👍

It was working for a while, but now I cannot seem to get remote access working.

 

Port is forwarded. The check passes. It shows that it's connected to the mothership and I've since rebooted the server. 

 

Any ideas?

Everything in those screenshots looks good! Only one thing I can think to check if you reload the Settings -> Management Access -> My Servers page, is "Allow Remote Access" still set to "Yes"? It is possible that you can set it up, test the connection, but not hit Apply, in which case the change will not be saved.

It was set to "Yes", but I did a No > Apply, then Yes > Apply and it seems to be working.

 

Thanks!

I'm running a Zerotier container that allowed me to access the server just fine from outside the network but ever since I enabled MyServers it won't work any more, presumably because I don't have remote access enabled. I navigate to the zerotier ip and if I'm on the same network it opens just fine but once I leave the network it's broken. I've removed the MyServers plugin and restarted my server but it still wants to navigate to `myuid.unraid.net` when navigating to `http://myip`. How do I disable it completely?

Sure, here is how to disable SSL for local access:

  https://wiki.unraid.net/My_Servers#How_to_disable_SSL_for_local_access

Note that SSL is only required if you want to use the optional Remote Access feature of My Servers. Nothing else in My Servers requires you to have SSL for local access enabled.

Good thing I hit up the last page. This solved all my issues and weirdness I was having trying to log into my server.
 

Weird stuff with trying to log on after setting up remote access on my first and new unraid build.

VPN off:

Chrome & Edge - I can't login in locally with the 192.x.x.x goes straight to the x1x1x1x1x1x1.unraid.net "this site can't be reached"

forums.unraid.net/my-servers/ --- shows local access and obviously clicking it is what happens same as above

 

VPN on:

Chrome (split-tunnel) - 192.x.x.x can't be reached which should be expected, but can remote access via my servers dashboard

Edge (not tunneled) - 192.x.x.x goes to x1x1x1.unraid.net logon screen and able to login. Other websites don't work?

 

VPN on:

Chrome (not tunneled) - 192.x.x.x to x1x1x1.unraid.net logon works. My servers dashboard "access unavailable". Google and searching works but other websites don't?

Edge (split-tunnel) - remote access available from my servers dashboard.

 

basically I can't get in locally unless my VPN is on and even with it on, it's only accessible locally when it's not being tunneled out?

I'm brand new to all this so I'm pretty sure it's user error at some point during set up and I at least have someway to get in but this all seems so clunky. Am I able to just start over without having to go through parity again?

Any particular reason for the flash backup to demand 1 GB of free space? That's a no go since I run my server on a 1 GB Nanodura USB stick (made for purpose of running things like Unraid or ESXi) and I Only got 400 MB free there...
