Very true on windows DNS not going to the other DNS server... the primary has to fail and keep failing at boot of the PC and even then only rarely it will take the secondary... its teribad, you'd almost put another DNS server in between to just split it up....

 

PS: Steam used to use its OWN DNS within steam.... no idea if they still do, think so, but that means it goes outside your defined one.... lol

but I guess it still looks at the defined one to see if the local environment has some caching to get it faster.

 

I can imagine ISP's having those servers up and running as well to lower the load.

Nice video, and glad you like Lancache!

 

For anyone having issues running Lancache, please feel free to hop on our Discord at https://discord.gg/BKnBS4u

 

There is a thriving community around Lancache, and you should be able to get help and advice there

 

Cheers!

Shame they didn't actually link to the project this time. It works amazingly well.

last time i tried to use said software. it was buggy due to docker(i know how a update to docker breaks stuff).

which i ref the bug on reddit sub . got insulted to hell and back.

saying i  am doing it wrong.

so i tried to report the bug in git hub. that  post got deleted.

3  or 4 version later they in doc list. i notice the bug i reported magical show up in there bug list fix.

 

so unless the community got ride of those rude people. a hard past on it.

A better way to do the DNS is to use DNS conditional forwarding on your actual DNS server, and only forward the cacheable domains to lancache. This way, users won't be left without internet if lancache goes down, and you can still have your normal primary/secondary DNS servers.
We use Windows servers for our DNS and I have scripts that automatically generate the powershell commands to add all the lancache conditional forwarders.

A SUGGESTION/COMPLAIN: in this video, its zoomed a lot. In every frame, subject (the server hardware) Linus (his head) is chopped off or chipped! Can't see the server and Linus together as whole. Always clipped in some section.

How did you set up the 10.20.0.35 DNS server and configure it for the cache server though, doing the job of what DNS out there in the cloud does in most setups?

Isn't this a MITM attack? (very ethical of course, but still)

I thought steam, and the rest of the internet, uses https to prevent this from happening. 😱

It is, sort of, but there are certain rules that have to be followed.

 

Steam itself uses https by default, but if the "lancache.steamcontent.com" trigger domain resolves to an RFC1918 address, it downgrades itself to http and uses the lancache.steamcontent.com host as a proxy for downloads.

 

Origin does similar but puts up a badly worded warning message about "safe downloads"

 

Epic Games just uses http by default after downloading manifests over https, so they can validate the downloaded files against their manifests.

 

So yes, it is similar to a MITM, but it's done with a level of client support as the publishers generally understand that supporting a project like Lancache helps their players have a better experience at LAN parties

Why was the decision made to use Ubuntu 20.04 over 22.04?

Wait, the old steam caching video was almost 4 years ago? Now I feel old... 🥲

05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0, 3.1 Gen1)

10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2 (USB 3.1 Gen2)

20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 

40Gb/s - USB 4.0, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4

80Gb/s - USB 4 2.0, Thunderbolt 5

As a Canadian why do you keep hocking this Super-Micro crap? They won't ship anything from their store to Canada.

Unfortunately iOS caching can only be done in MacOS. You can find Apple's official guide here: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/set-up-content-caching-on-mac-mchl3b6c3720/mac

Can somebody please tell me how the precaching thing is called? I just set up lancache myself and now want to fill my (small, I know) 500 gigs of caching space.

Anybody able to identify the tools that were used for SSH and the resource monitoring? They looked decent and want to test in my home lab!

I found out myself: The precaching thing is called Lancache Prefill for Windows, OSx and Linux, another tool purely for Linux is called Lancache Autofill.

thank you for the link. i do wise there was a easy way to auto install this. be it a os or some software install in win.

(i got a old 6 core machine that would do well for something like this for myself)

It's actually relatively easy to install compared with some other Linux software. Just try it and format the drive if it didn't work. Follow this guide on how to install lancache and this guide on how to install docker before lancache. I would reccomend doing it on a GUI Linux, so you can test easyer and it's much better if you want to tweek your cache.

 

There is only one problem in the documentation: When downloading lancache, it will download a folder called "docker-compose". You have to navigate in that folder before running the "sudo docker-compose up -d" command. And by default, any docker command has to executed as admin (sudo).

 

If you really want to, i can also post a already setup linux VM, in which you would just have to edit some settings. This would be a little less complicated as installing on a dedicated system yourself, because you'd have to pass through your cache storage device.

i would not mind that ether.

also it seems  they updated doc info. since 19.
