Unraid Server Question (not sure where to go with this one)


Recommended Posts

Quick question on where to start to look for an answer, if it's possible, and how complicated it would be if it is.  I have my Unraid Server set up on a 1u server.  I will be installing a raspberry pi with octopi and have that connected to my 3d printer.  Is there a way to use nginx on my server to point to the local IP of Octoprint for remote access to it? (if it is possible to do so that is).  I tried the Octoprint docker and had it working on my printer, but have had 2 fails prints because the docker locked up or crashed.  From some more research, most are saying to not use your server and have a dedicated pi for the printer.  


Anyways, direction would be great.

I basically do the same here, except point to my RainMachine sprinkler controller.


I run NPM (Nginx Proxy Manager) on my server, and NPM redirects the traffic to the RainMachine on the same router/network.


I also use it to access several of the dockers on my server, using a cheap domain I picked up and a free Cloudflare account.  (A nice side effect is it doesn't usually get trapped in the DNS blocking firewalls some networks use).


There are several NPM / Reverse Proxy videos and tutorials an easy search away.
