I think I did well but take mine with a grain of salt. Great cpu, well reviewed board (with wifi as a plus) and case, fast memory, 2.5GB storage, GPU good enough for 1080p 144hz (which are the monitor specs for this i recommend; 24 inches because 1080p).
  2. So it says the port is 1194. Would i put that in the internal and external port boxes and my raspi address in the internal ip box? and set it to udp?
  3. So I decided to go with VPN option, however I notice in the guide that I still need to port forward the VPN port, but not an SMB port, which makes sense because typically when making VPNs accessing them is fun. I’m assuming so, but just to be sure, still safe?
  4. Thanks! Would one of these options be better than the other (NextCloud or VPN)?
  5. Sorry I had school and couldn’t respond. Looks like a few people say NextCloud, and that SMB isn’t safe over WAN unless using a VPN. However, you haven’t given me a guide on how to do it with a VPN, so I don’t know how to take further action. Thank you @kirashi for providing a guide; I’ll look into it.
  6. So, I have Samba installed on a Raspberry Pi with a USB Hard Drive for a NAS (as one does, of course), but i am confused about how I can remotely access it. I did read the pinned message, but it was a little confusing imo, and i’ve also seen things that say some things are more secure than others, slow speeds and latency could be introduced heavily, etc. So what option do you guys think is the best combo of security, price (has to be less than cloud, preferably free obv), and just general overall happy-fun-time-i-ness. If you want me to switch to another file service instead of Samba, I would need a guide for how to set that up on RPi. Additionally, if you could provide a guide for how to do whatever option you would suggest for my situation, that would be helpful (and like one of the main reasons I am writing this). Lastly, in case you select the port-forwarding option, I have attached an image of the port forwarding section on my router’s interface, so I would appreciate if you could tell me what to fill in those boxes. Thanks!
  7. Ah yes that makes sense, but isn’t SFP made to be adapted? Also, the plan is SFP
  8. Ok mistake on my part. The thing I didn’t understand was “What is the ISP device’s LAN output interface for their multi-gig plan?”
  9. Obviously the general public can’t build their own laptop, but maybe you guys can... in a way... How about you use the smallest form factor things you can get and try to build the most mobile device possible. You could use that short noctua cooler, ram without heat spreaders (or laptop ram if you can find an adapter?) and a ultra-mega-super-deluxe-mini-itx mobo. I don’t think you could fit a dGPU in there, but considering the fact that you are building a PC inside of a desk, I don’t know what’s possible with modding. AND maybe you could use that portable screen that ASUS makes. There’s my idea. It’s amazing. No question. Completely flawless. Don’t reread.
  10. What exactly do you mean by this? I know is that I need a switch with at least 2 ports that are ≥ 2.5Gbps and has at least 4 other ≥ 1Gb ports. Also sorry about taking your message too harshly
  11. Why should I have to explain myself? Because there is a multi-gig plan in my area.
  12. What do you mean by connect them to each other?
  13. Thanks for the info, though that switch you recommended is basically the same as what I recommended... which is great because that’s exactly what I’m after! Thank you as well, but I don’t think I want to go the SFP+ route with all the adapters and stuff.
  14. I have an area in my home where we have a few ethernet devices in close proximity. However, we don’t have 9 all at once. I was looking at the ASUS XG-U2008, but it is pretty expensive. I was wondering if there is a cheaper version of this switch (or something very similar made by another brand) that still has 2 multi-gig and at least 3 or 4 gigabit ports. It can be managed or unmanaged, but I found a refurbished XG-U2008 for $130, so it also must be less than that. Thanks!
