The VMs each have their own work directory with RW permissions and read only on the media.


I don't know how well that explains it though.

Interesting... What VPN service are you using?

I ask because my host is Windows 10 which is where my PLEX is installed, however, my VPN (PIA) blocks PLEX unless I use a port proxy every time the forwarded port changes, and even then it is severely limited quality.

I tried running a Mint18 VM to run the VPN but was unable to establish a connection from Mint to my RAID array on the host with PIA active in the VM.

I'm going to have to open it again to see where I went wrong. My biggest problem is that I know next to nothing about linux... Man do I wish I could remember my college classes.

Ah I see what you mean, I have a isolated virtual network which VMs connect to in order to connect to the local storage even when a VPN is active. I am actually running my own custom OpenVPN server on the VPN VM. It could run on the host Ubuntu install however I messed up some network configs setting it up the first time so I put it in a VM for snapshot goodness and so I don't need to go through 500 config files to find the problem again ( the host quit talking over a network completely after I messed it up).

How did you virtualise the VPN? I would like to know as it's extremely handy.

I have a VM running an OpenVPN server running on it. I have this server port forwarded on 443 to the outside world. When connecting to the port it expects a particular RSA key, if it isn't provided the connection is dropped. The newtwork on that VM is then set up to forward connections allowing complete access to my local lan after connecting. If you wanted it to go the other way I would just set it up so that there is an active VPN connection and connect from the local network. It really doesn't work any different than a dedicated VPN box.

I know that isn't very clear but I am not entirely sure what you want to accomplish.

This is basically what I tried to accomplish with pfSense but failed so I am wondering how you set it up.

I have a similar setup at home also with the ta.key.

On the WAN edge you essentially have to forward your UDP VPN port (such as 1194) to the OpenVPN server. You also need to set up a route statement for your VPN subnet that you assign to users from the router out to the OpenVPN server. After that it's all just configuration on the server itself.

Nice setup.

Is there a way to get some basic GPU accel in VSphere without buying a GRID card? I saw some references to sVGA when researching it but nothing that makes me willing to set up a whole second server to try it out...

Hey guys, i just ordered the Rosewill RSV-Z2600 2U server chassis and will slowly build from it. This will be my first server build so i want good quality products that will last awhile and perform well. My main usage for it is keeping data on it like movies, torrents, etc transferring it from my PC. I plan to install freenas once it is complete. I want to get feedback on what components i should use since im clearly not a server expert.

Chassis: Rosewill RSV-Z2600 2U
Motherboard: (Preferably below $150)
CPU: (Preferably below $150)
CPU COOLER: (keep them temps low!)
RAM: (Preferably 16GB)
PSU: (Preferably below $100)
SSD: (Will be from my PC - Crucial MX100 256GB)
HHD: (Heard the WD reds are good for servers)
