  1. Hello, i'm a little bit stuck and i'm hoping to find some help here My home network is In this network i've got a pfSense firewall running that only serves as an OpenVPN server. It has it's WAN interface connected to my LAN. The problem is that when connected to the VPN it connects me to the virtual network that the OpenVPN server creates. However i want it to connect to my LAN (so the pfSense's WAN). Does anyone how i'd do something like this? Thanks in advance!
  2. Great givaway! Would be the perfect replacement for my little brothers old pc!
  3. I'll probably use it to render gameplay video's. My old CPU will be donated to my little brothers to upgrade his pc and hopefully they'll opt out of buying a console
  4. Like bonehead said, powerline isnt always the most reliable way of providing ethernet. The best way would be running cables trough the house, but it's time consuming. I don't know what distance is between your pc and the router, but i'd vote for connecting your pc via wifi via a dongle or such. When your wifi is well within range, it's fine for gaming and video.
  5. I'm more concerned with plugging it back in all the time and the capacitors constantly charging/ discharging when being plugged in/ out (if thats a thing) It's a Dell PowerEdge R510
  6. Hello, quick question; i recently bought a server that makes a little buzzing noise when turned off. I want it to be completely silent when it's off, so i though about just unplugging it (or hooking up one of those remote controlled power sockets). However i was wondering if it would be bad for the hardware to just unplug it at night and plug in in during the daytime. Thanks in advance! Echelon
  7. Wait until the next generations drops, like OriginalPromise suggests and then buy a last gen card. The 290x is rumored to drop in price real soon. And buying a card that is just released (if your on a budget) would be way to expensive.
  8. I don't expect it to affect the graphics card itself (1 degree at best), but the wifi card itself might get warm... This isnt a big deal either, but moving the card to the lower slot shouldnt be a hassle. You should be able to plug it into the large PCI slot. Your PC will just recognize it as the same wifi card without trouble.
  9. Thanks! I'll check VMWare's HCL before buying!
  10. I don't see how the budget is really related? I'm looking for a system that can run 10 non intensive VM's so you should look according to performance, not according to budget... If you'd build a system built according to budget it'd be tailored for a budget, not for the use. but <€500,- would be nice
  11. I was thinking of an i5, they're a little bit more expensive, but i'm going for quiet so i think i'm better off with an intel CPU. 32GB of RAM should be enough right? And for storage 2x 1TB in RAID1. SSD might be an expension in the future, but as of now i'm trying to keep in cheap-ish Does that sound like something that could work?
  12. Thanks for the reply, but that's is just the basic stuff, i'm looking for a somewhat more specific answer I know for RAM is should at least count 2GB per VM. And CPU something around 1 core per 4 VM's. I wanted to know what you guys think and if what i'm thinking is right, because i'm pretty new to virtualisation servers...
  13. Hey! I made a topic a few days ago asking wether i should go for server or desktop grade hardware for running an ESXi virtualisation server. I went with desktop grade, because i'd be a lot quieter. Now as i'm trying so assemble a server pc i realize... I havo no idea what hardware an ESXi machine requires Could anyone give me an idea what hardware i'd need to run a server like that? It's going to be running 10 VM's maximum, things like a database server, webserver, fileserver, ftp, firewall etc. This will mostly be used internally so i don't expect much traffic or load. It'll mostly be based on linux. I'd like to hear what you think!
  14. Thanks! I'll be going for a desktop, because it'll be in my room all the time and i don't think i'd be able to sleep with the noise of a real server.
  15. Thanks for brining up noise. I was wondering what the noise difference would be? Are servers really that loud? Because a cheap-ish intel CPU could, with a big enogh radioator, almost be cooled passively.
