    That's the OpenVPN icon when its running but not connected to a VPN.  Notice the lock isn't entirely closed.

    Falconevo got a reaction from TopHatProductions115 in NVMe RAID on ESXi ??   
    Yea, I've been doing testing with the tri-mode LSI controllers and they have some serious performance and support NVMe raid using U.2 drives.

    Just a pain how expensive the chassis are to support the stuff at the moment.

    I also have an Intel Ruler Eval system in if you want any info on that beast

    You will require vROC (virtual raid on chip) to be supported on the motherboard to use NVMe drives in RAID.

    vROC only arrived on the latest eval units, the R730 as good of a chassis that it is doesn't have support for vROC.  In addition the vROC needs to be licensed for the requirement you have which is a premium license which costs £££ also  AMD's version is license free so keep that in mind.
     
    I'm also unsure about vROC driver support on ESXi.  I haven't tested vROC on ESXi myself as I've only tested Server 2016, Server 2019, CentOS and RedHat.
    Here's the vROC running in Windows using RSTe
     

     
    vROC also has some limitations with dual socket configurations, for example you can't create VMD (Volume Management Device) across multiple CPU sockets which is bootable.  As the PCIe devices are bound to a CPU for their PCIe lanes it doesn't allow for it.  You can create a VMD which spans multiple CPU's but it cannot be used to boot and some OS's have problems seeing the device correctly due to early driver implementation.
     
    Some caveats to using a VMD, currently nothing other than Intel software can correctly read the S.M.A.R.T data on the NVMe(s) behind the VMD.  This is something I have raised to Intel recently for their team to review which i'm sure they will sort out.
     
    Hope this helps a bit, give me a shout if you want any more specific info as I still have a vROC capable NVMe unit in storage eval testing.

    Hi there,
     
    Ive seen some LTT videos about PTP links recently.
     
    Wi-Fi (or Wireless, duh) links can be very efficient and reliable even on a long distance.
     
    Here's an example of a 90km PTP link with Carrier Grade SIAE radios, and a 2,40m antenna. (Also one of the towers are @ my profile pic!)
     
    Link Speed is currently between 1.4Gbps-1.5Gbps, Link Mode 2x 2+0 XPIC (quad chain IDU)
     
    IDU overview and tower locations in attachments, for science! haha.
     
    Keep in mind those radios provide internet to a whole city. We're a ISP.

    Falconevo reacted to Jarsky in Someone is hacking my server,I need your help   
    Best practice would be to use cert based authentication, then disable password authentication. 
    I have a Pi I use at home as an SSH jumphost on the SSH port rather than direct to any of my servers. That has password authentication enabled still, but it has fail2ban on it.

    If you want to block adverts, the easiest way is to use DNSBL and set an unbound DNS resolver to simply redirect advert DNS requests to 10.10.10.1 per the DNSBL default config.

    Give me a breakdown on exactly what you want to do, ill pass some advice over.

    Falconevo got a reaction from mynameisjuan in Preparing for 10 GIGABIT Internet! What Could Go Wrong?   
    I use pfSense a lot and I completely agree.  For anything under 5Gbit/s pfSense (with correctly spec'd hardware) is more than adequate but once you start pushing over 5Gbit/s with additional services, ACL's and VPN's etc the performance starts to tail off.   
     
    I have managed to get 7.8Gbit/s throughput WAN<>LAN via pfSense in the past with minimal ACL's, some tuning of the driver config for the X710 Intel network card and some high clock speed Xeons.  It could probably push for more with an OC X99/X299 setup but the soft interrupts is what killed it's performance rather than the actual CPU capacity.  I think that would need some pretty heavy driver and OS (BSD) tuning to take place before it can push 10G line rate with ease.

    Falconevo got a reaction from leadeater in RAID Array Slow For No Reason   
    Configuring RAID generally turns off the disk cache on the SATA drive, look in the configuration of the RAID controller to see if you can re-enable it.  It comes with a warning as you will potentially have data loss in the event the machine loses power during a write operation.

    Falconevo reacted to AA-Andrew in Load balancing two DSL internet connections (UK)   
    Yes AAISP (who I work for) has been doing bonding since the early days of ADSL1... we don't do Multilink PPP, but simple packet based - so we can bond multiple lines and your download and upload speed can be the combined speed to all the lines.  More info https://support.aa.net.uk/Category:Bonding 
     
    We don't charge extra to bond multiple lines, you just need the lines from us.
     
    We also make hardware that can do bonding and failover - it's more aimed (price-wise) at small businesses, we we do have many residential customers using our FireBrick routers.
     
    Not really wanting to make this a sales pitch - but hopefully offering some technical advice.

    Falconevo reacted to dj_ripcord in Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X - One port not working at gigabit   
    Port 4 (eth4) on the Edgerouter X is a PoE 24v passive port.
     
    What you're experiencing is a limitation of passive PoE if i'm not mistaken.
  18. Agree
    Falconevo reacted to Dujith in Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X - One port not working at gigabit   
    Port 4 is a passthrough for Passive Poe. Meaning that pins 4,5,7,8 are just for power. So you are left with 4 pins that will do 100Mbit max.

    Wont work on Windows 10 Pro, the LBOF feature is disabled in the OS.

    You would need to use the same manufacturer such as Intel x5** network series and use their OS and driver specific teaming capability.

    Unfortunately MS removed the feature for nic teaming on Windows 10.
