  1. Hi All, Does this KVM over IP from HP mean you can just plug in to ethernet plug into a computer and remotely access it using a webbrowser/VNC etc. I'm new to server remote management so if you could let me know it would be much appreciated. Thanks
  2. I don't need a dual port but it would be nice. I currently have two switches. A HP Procurve 2810-48G and a 2610-24
  3. Well, the main reason for picking that nic was because it was cheap on eBay. I have tested the nic in another pc at school and it works perfectly. I don't have a large budget for spending on these cards as im still in school and i can't blow 100's of dollars of networking components all the time. My budget is about 40/50 dollars for a dual port card. If you have any tips to which card to go with it would be much appreciated. Thanks
  4. Cross Tab Credential Leak found by Google Zero Day developers have found a problem with the LastPass automatic fill in for textboxes. When a user doesn't follow though with a login using the auto filled credentials they are cached and can be accessed from sites viewed afterwards (your mileage may vary, check out the following posts) . The following posts show the specifics to the problem. There has been an update pushed out already so make sure you update your devices or Chrome addons. https://bugs.chromium.org/p/project-zero/issues/detail?id=1930 https://blog.lastpass.com/20
  5. The main specs are as follows: Ryzen 5 1600 16GB Vengeance LPX X370 SLI Plus I've got a 1Gb network adapter in one of the slots at the moment and it works so i assume its not due to the motherboard not accepting non gpu cards.
  6. Hi All, I have turned an old PC into my home server and I wanted to install a 10Gb Network Card into it. I have bought a new NC523SFP and put it into the system. The system either doesn't turn on or the card doesn't show up in the system. My question is, what are the hardware requirements for the card and does it need to have a specific processor, i.e. Intel/AMD? And, if that card doesn't work, will the NC552SFP work instead? Any help appreciated. Thanks, Cooper
  7. As far as i know, according to the model number on the card it should be the NC523SFP.
  8. Hey, Just bought a HP NC523SFP 10Gb 2-port Server Adapter from eBay. I have installed it and seems to be working (based on the flashing lights on the card). When I open up my server and try to install the driver it says the Software could not be installed because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system. The server OS is Server 2012 R2 as specified by the driver. What am I doing wrong. The drivers i'm installing are on the following site: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/km/product/4345884/Product#t=DriversandSoftw
  9. Hey, Are you able to run pfSense on a Raspberry Pi? If you can, are there any drawbacks from doing so? Thanks
  10. Hi, I'm connecting up some Server's on a budget using fiber optic cable (LC/LC) and SFP/SFP+. I want to know if the following products will be compatible together. PCIE SPF+10G Card: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/163729687909 SFP 8G Transceiver: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Lot-of-10-Brocade-57-1000012-01-8G-SW-Optical-SFP-Transceiver-Module-10-Quantity/223483789023?hash=item3408abfedf:g:WksAAOSw0ntctTBW&frcectupt=true Thanks, Cooper
  11. Hey, This is VERY risky and is not recommended. The ports you open will allow outside attackers to get an easier router into your home network. I would suggest making a separate subnet using another machine and running pfSense on it. This will allow your gaming server network to be separate from your main network meaning if something bad happened on your server network it won't affect your home network stuff.
  12. The top cable is a PWM fan extender. the bottom one is a usb 3.0 header.
  13. When you look in the BIOS does it show that your pump fan is working and at a decent RPM? Do you have an air cooler handy? That would test the theory of it being an AIO issue. I'm just throwing up ideas.
  14. Thanks for the suggestion. It is a good consideration. I'm not too sure if windows server has that functionality.
  15. I have not ticked that box. I made sure everything was optimised for the quickest format. Still no luck...
  16. That is not the point, the reason to have 8 1TB is because 1, they are cheaper where i am 2, for redundancy It also means that if and when i need more i can get them one at a time and not need to buy one that is that expensive. But i did consider doing that at one stage.
  17. That was what i thought. Is there anything i can to do make it go faster?
  18. Hi All, I have just bought 8 1TB HDD's for my new storage server. I have Windows Server 2016 running and am trying to software RAID them for RAID 5. I have started the process but it seems to be taking forever. I have been waiting over 20 hours and it is still on 14% formatting. Is there anything to make it faster and is this normal for it to take this long. Thanks, Cooper
  19. Thanks, @Crunchy Dragon for replying. I a number of questions though... 1. If a drive fails and I replace it with a new drive, will this automatically rebuild the data on the new drive? 2. How much storage space will there be... I'm guessing it will be 4TB but i want to confirm. Thanks
  20. Hi Guys, I'm new to RAID configurations and need some help determining which one to use for my server. I have 8x 1TB HDD's and want to know the best configuration of RAID for these drives for redundancy, speed, and ease of use. Note I am using FreeNAS on my server. Thanks, Cooper
  21. I have built a new file server for my home network and im in the process of buying a patch panel and patch cables. CAT5/e is much cheaper than CAT6 but which is better??
  22. I use the same cooler and it works great, i can even push it a little while overclocking. You probably only need to get another cooler if you want it to be a little quieter or if you want to overclock way more than boost clock speeds.
  23. It should be relatively normal, mine does the same thing. It could also be because you don't have a hard drive sled with rubber grommets... Hope this helps
  24. You can look into FileZilla. It is used to SSH into your server or others that are hosted elsewhere. Hope this helps
