  1. I don't see any problem. Vsphere is showing the disk size of your freenas system. And freenas is showing how much of that space is used. So everything is fine.
  2. Does it make sense to build your own pf-sense box or buy one from netgate?
  3. I can use it as my only switch. I need a router as well, but the same goes for a l3 switch since a switch does not have a firewall and stuff
  4. @brwainer and @LAwLz thank you very much for your input! I think ill go with the fs switch. It also supports ACLs so thats good. And for the pf-sense box im unsure if i want to go for the 3100 one or the 1100 to be future proof. But i think my wallet already knows for what router im going for Downlink 1G but its hard to saturate it, so if im 200 or 400 Mbps low. 600Mps down is still great
  5. but when its gonna be realeased and if everything works is still unlear, so mikrotik is not an option its helpfull, but i think in a small homenetwork you dont have to have a one platform for everything. would you recommend unifi anyway? So if i get the fs switch my router doesnt need a high bandwidth, because the switch does all the routing. The router only provides the DHCP, Firewall and the connection to the Internet. And pf-sense looks like a solid routing-software and the hardware specs look promising as well.
  6. So its nearly impossible to get what i want with my current budget. something like that. but do i need a l3 or is a l2+ switch enought? And if i get a mikotik switch i need a rotuer too? so do i get a router by mikrotik or another brand? I found a switch by fs.com only l2+, but it should do the things i want it to do? Yeah with ubiquity i had to go for the only 1G route and upgrade my network to 10G with my new server and everything. What do you think of the RV260 router of them? or your opinion on cisco in gerneral. Maybe i should not invest into 10G yet and stick with 1G
  7. around 500€($) but if its a very good option a little more. At the moment i have 1 Sever with 2 ports one traffic one management, 1 PC, 1 Pi, 1 Laptop (lan and Wlan) and other mobile stuff. Currently there is no 10G in my network and i currently can't saturate a 10G connection with only HDD. in the next 2-3 years im planning to get a full freenas server with hdds or ssds to be full speed. So if there are 10g ports on the switch two to four should be enoght for the next couple of years. No. So im up for every brand, which suits my needs best and is affordable. I have looked into EdgeMax, fs.com and cisco Switches and Routes since they are in my price range. Im aware that i need a acesspoint in some cases. the equipment should be rackmountable. Special features should be Natloopback ( reacking my sever from the network with my external ip address), VPN on the router, a decent firewall. since im starting with "good" networking the features i want will grow over time There are a few reasons: to make a guest wifi (but that is sometimes included in the router, but i dont know if its in an accses-point) and to seperate my server, my server management and my homenetwork (pc/laptop and stuff) from each other. My server is exposed to the internet. And i want to try stuff because of my computer sience studies.
  8. Hey guys, I want to upgrade my home network. Currently I just use the router of my internet provider (it sucks). I have an UNRAID-server, a pi, laptop, pc and mobile devices in my network. I want to put some devices on different vlans and want to be able to route between them. In the near future I want to upgrade my server to 10G or add a server with 10G and add 10G to my PC. My current router doesnt support vlan, so i need a new router to support this, because i need a gateway and an dhcp-server for every vlan (layer 3 switch is not sufficent?). Correct? Since I'm starting from scrap I have to get an router with gigabit lan and vlan support.(10G router are out of my price range) For my switch I have three options: 1. get a l2 1G switch and let the router do the inter vlan communication but only 1G 2. get a l2+ switch with 1G and/or 10G ports. manage my static routes in the switch and get 10G between devices. 3. get a l3 switch with 1G and/or 10G ports. manage dynamic routes in the switch and get 10G I can't decide what route i should take. I'm just starting with networking, so i dont know what is the best way of practise. And one main question i have is should the router and the switch be the same brand so it can be managed in one software/interface. ( heard its easier to use routering between vlans with one management platform) And are the ubiqity edgemax switches/router any good? Thanks for your suggestions up front Matze
  9. Thats more than my motherboard can do... I think I'm waiting to upgrade my hardware to make some really fine adjustments. thats the stuff i want. since the normal consumer stuff doesnt support vlan. And I think i can live with only "500+ Mbps" download from the internet. Still really fast. I think i need a managed switch at least for my vlans. The nerd inside of me wants to be manage and be satisfied. and thanks for your answers guys I'll start a new topic on l3 and l2+ switches since I think it's hardware limited atm and it will be just try and error to find the right tweak
  10. i had the same idea. but where? This is due to WSL. It's running on the same PC(client) as the second speedtest. So in the first test you could say its virtualization. But the speed test server is running on a vm (first picture) and docker (second picture) I dont think a diagam is curently necessary since everthing is pluged into my router. But its hard to find in the specs what the switching capability is. I'm thinking of getting a cisco rv260.
  11. Hey guys, I've done some experimenting and research and a lot of questions are piling up! I want to make in the near future upgrades to my networking gear (currently using the ISP-router). I am looking into entry-level enterprise/office gear. Most of the routers have to be attached via wan (ISP-router to brige-mode) and are "only" capable of 500 to 800 Mbps (have Gigabit internet). And since im a student I dont want to invest that much. My question is: What is their routing/switich capacity between lan ports? Or do i have to get a seperate switch to get gigabit speed in the local network? I was testing my local speed between my server and my pc with iperf3 and i was only getting around 700 Mbits/sec. What is the bottleneck? My Pc, my router or my lan cables ( all cat 6) Hope someone can help me Best regards Matze EDIT: i have just made an discovery: and my head just went boom! why tf do i get 1000 down and only ~700 up in my local network?
  12. Is there hardware which supports NAT loopback or does it cause too much problem and no one needs this feature realy or is there a simpler way?
  13. I thought somethink like that. Yeah so thanks guys for the quick replys Then I'm looking for a new router now
  14. yeah this sounds like my problem. So it is a hardwareproblem?
  15. Hey guys, the Topic might sound simple, but my mind is completly blown atm and I need some guys to help me out My Setup: I have a local Server installed and I can access it via the local IP perfectly fine. Now I have set up a domain with a dyndns to reach my Server via Internet. It works perfectly fine when I'm not in my local network. Here starts the crazy part: I can partially reach my server via my domain in my local network. Small amount of data can be transfered, large amount crashes my router. For example Via NExtcloud I can Backup all my contacts in my WLAN and Videos (30MB) will crash my Router at 10-20%.(whole reason for the thread) I have noticed that I can't ping my public IPV4 and IPv6 address. I just had a call with my Internet Provider (unitymedia germany and i have dualstack ipv4/ipv6) and they told me it is not possible to reach my own public ipv4 addres because the router cant handle it and thinks it is some kind of attack. They also claimed this is not possible at all (internetprovider does not mather). For me this sounds a littls ridiculous. So here is my question: Is this really not possible to ping your own ipv4 from your local network? Are there some Internetproviders where this is possible? Or does their hardware just suck ass? Thanks for your replies up front Matze
