francesco7 Posted January 16 Share Posted January 16 (edited) I'm very new to everything related to homeservers and security , I just created my first UnRaid server, I use it mainly as a media server and various data storage, for the moment I use the following containers: Krusader, Easy Wireguard, Plex and duckdns ; I recently followed a guide for Wol and WoW. I have several security concerns: DOUBT ABOUT EASY WIREGUARD I have installed and set-up Easy Wireguard and since I was able to access the UnRaid web GUI even from an external network it means that everything went fine, the only doubt is that I didn't have to touch any VPN settings from the UnRaid settings (I also tried but it doesn't even allow me to activate the toggle), perhaps because it is the simplified version of Wireguard?, and another doubt is: through Wireguard I can open a vpn tunnel between my devices outside the home network and my server in a secure way, does this allow me to secure the use of other dockers as well or do I have to link them to wireguard? DOUBT ABOUT "W.O.W." I followed a very detailed guide(not in english) on how to set up WoL and WoW for your devices, what doesn't convince me is if the procedure opens vulnerabilities to my server, since the guide is quite long I'll try to summarize it. I checked that my server's motherboard supports WoL via UnRaid terminal, I added a path forwarding rule (tcp/udp) on my router to my server, I downloaded on the device I want to use to remotely control the powering of the server an app/software that by inserting: open port number, mac, and ddns pointing to my ip actually, actually allows remote powering on. Also another doubt is: as wireguard is currently set up, it allows me to also use it as a personal vpn for the most common things (such as torrent, netflix, etc.) simply by connecting the device I want to the server via vpn? Excuse me for the inexperience and the confusing writing , obviously ask me for any details that may be useful, thank you all very much. Edited January 16 by francesco7 Quote Link to comment
