  1. To further explain this: There are 2 types of services being started: - One type is the actual caching containers. They are per service (Steam, Origin, ...) - The other type is a container that takes the incoming requests, and then either forwards them to the caching containers or just forwards towards the internet if no container is found for the service. You need to point your Windows machines to the second type.
  2. The energy is basically wasted. The energy used by bitcoin could be spent powering equipment that is doing cancer research or finding ET. Could also be used to power manufacturing facilities to make produced items cheaper, making them more affordable to poorer countries.
  3. Can you ping machines via ip adress? Eg: (Google DNS machine) If yes: Then the issue is probably something DNS related. Go into the settings of your pc and set Google DNS as your preferedd DNS servers If no: Then the issue should be somewhere between the Router and Modem or Modem and ISP network. Perhaps some idiot put a backhoe trough the cable somewhere.
  4. Unless you have credentials for each and every pc (or an administrative way to acces the machine) I don't think it is possible to do this remotely
  5. Pretty much anything is possible with some code. You could code this in a couple of hours.
  6. Looks to be a workstation, how do you even read text on the outer screens?!
  7. Yeay, you're gonna want a point to point network on that ethernet cable. Pick a subnet adress eg:, subnet mask could be as small as a /30 (CIDR notation), and set each machine with an ip: eg: and You should then be able to connect via SMB (if all is set up correctly on the linux box) via the ip adress of the box itself
  8. If you set static ip's in the small subnet that should be just the case. But explain again how you physically want to setup these pc's? Is the tiny box gonna be connected to a switch and then back to the W10 machine, the same way W10 gets its internet? Or are you running a cable between a second ethernet port of W10 to the new machine? In the first scenario, you simply need to set a static ip in the subnet your router 'controls'. Most likely (Look up CIDR notation & subnetting). In the second scenario, you would need to make a point to point network between bo
  9. No need for a router to have a /30 network between 2 pc's. Point to point connections is a thing. And are you sure the rolling release is that helpfull for a roughly server - client style use case? Like, I love Arch, but wouldn't trust any server with it. The rolling release of basic Arch can break many things. Personally for my server I just use Ubuntu server 16.04 or the 16.04 LTS version of normal Ubuntu
  10. Ah, yea. That should be doable with a manual network config. Lemme get you a basic guide https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/251057/can-i-contect-a-ubuntu-linux-laptop-to-a-windows-10-laptop-via-ethernet-cable This about explains it. You basically wanna create a host to host network, with no router in between. You simply have to set PC A to an ip within your subnet, and PC B to an ip within your subnet. Perhaps it's a good thing if you learn some networking. It could be really usefull later in life (whenever the "Did you try turning it off and on again" isn't working for Grandm
  11. Serving data to a Windows pc is done via Samba-share, and Samba probably has binaries for every flavour of linux.
  12. Tbh, anything is possible with some sort of linux distribution. I currently have my 'work' laptop on an Antergos (basically easy-Arch) install, but that is not really helpfull for systems that are meant to run very stable for long periods of time. Arch is rolling release instead of the major release schemes from the Ubuntu family.
  13. How comfortable are you with Linux? On a scale from low comfort to very high comfort: LUbuntu (as it is quite low on resource demands) Ubuntu Server (Touch heavier, but no gui to suck up resources) Debian (Light and no standard gui afaik)
  14. Although I may be a touch late to reply to this thread I have been in contact with AT support on what accesories come with this version of the headphones. He has mentioned that the gun metal version of the headphones is an Amazon exclusive. You'll have to find a way to make it work. If you're really determined, you could use a re-shipping service. They will take your package from Amazon, and then forward it to you.
  15. They actually don't as 100% used server capacity is generally bad for user experience. Any more requests to the system and it grinds to a halt. They generally aim for high usage by combining workloads with virtualisation. At one point a machine may be a web server, the next it may host a piece of controller software and some file stuff.
