  • Setting up Rsync

    Since it specifies the full path to the command, the following would work, if you chose to use it. /usr/bin/rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-disk1/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-disk2 However: Linux has the equivalent of Windows paths to executables, so app's in user binaries(/usr/bin/) should run without specifying the full path. In essence, "rsync" , as a standalone command, should work. If rsync exists under /usr/bin and the command doesn't work, as it is in the guide, you might have someth…

  • You have the right idea. Everything you've configured should be removed in reverse order. (While that might seem to be a pain, it's actually logical. Otherwise, a click or two of the mouse could destroy hours worth of work and data as well.) If DELETE is grayed out, you might have something attached to a shared folder, the file system, etc. Installing the reset perms plugin might help you find it. This post goes over "de"configuring drives, installing the reset perm's plugin, and what it does. I…

    At the new place, the ISP's ADSL router is locked down as well. There's very little I can change but one item is turning off their Wifi (which I did). With my router behind it, I'm in control again. You know, given where I am now, I'm amazed that I have 15mbs (tested) DSL. I'm 1.5 miles from the nearest paved road which, as luck would have it, happens to be where the telco has their ATM access node. In any case, if you throw a router behind the Home Hub, things become simple but it would require…

    You could statically set the DNS address, while leaving the IP address on automatic (DHCP). (I've done that before, but I forget the reason why...) But if you're there, you might as well do it all. I can say this much: I have no idea how much it shortens network connections and interchanges but unbound is fast. After the first name lookup, the next is 0ms (from the OMV server's perspective). When testing, the DNS bench mark utility shows that local resolution is faster than any server out there.…

    From before - it's coming back now. I seem to remember something about the ISP equipment providing really good Wifi. (Other than that, the equipment didn't provide the normal set of features - kind of brain dead.) And I even think I said this before; if you want to take control of this it's going to have to be with your own equipment (and Wifi) which would represent a significant expense in your case. I'm in a similar situation at the new place - being forced to use ISP's ADSL router, while payi…

    All's well that ends well, but one would have to wonder; what happened where "sharedfolders" became hidden and what was adding files to it? Was there anything on the Debian forum that might explain or suggest how it happened? (Just curious.)

    Geaves: As you seem to be trying different settings - you probably already know this.... If you change unbound's config, it should to be followed by service unbound restart (or a reboot). Since it seems there may be some sort of problem, what does service unbound status show?

    You're using OMV's DNS plugin (as I remember) where I am not. Perhaps the plugin is conflicting with unbound. Did you ever figure out a workaround for the DHCP issue? (Caused by your ISP's router as I recall.)

    It seems like a permissions issue. Take a look at this post.

    Quote from geaves: “EDIT: The other thing I noticed was that the interface in pi-hole is set at eth0, even though I reinstalled pi-hole once I got the N54L running and it's network interface....further investigation of 01-pihole.conf in /dockerparms/pihole/dnsmasq.d has the setting as interface=eth0, eth0 was from the last server. ” My setup, on the latest pi-hole in Docker (ver 4.0), is eth0 as well. Remember, pi-hole (in a Docker) is running in a type of vm where the Ethernet interface might s…

  • Pi-Hole - Network wide Ad blocking

    flmaxey - - Plugins

    Post

    While I don't know if there's a Docker for unbound; I'm sure it would work that way (Docker to Docker). Unbound and pi-hole connect by IP address and port. I chose a direct install, into OMV's Debian OS, because unbound is really light and the semi-annual update can be automated (in scheduled tasks.)

    I just finished testing unbound and, I have to say, I'm impressed. Cached entries, 0ms. I linked from the Pi-Hole/Docker, by IPaddress#port to the OMV host and it works fine. This is far better than ISP or public resolvers. After running through it again, I'm thinking about tacking this onto the Pi-Hole Docker How-To for those who may be interested. If this will work on an R-PI (here's to hoping the unbound package is available on Armbian), that's better yet. Quote from ryecoaaron: “Quote from g…

    I installed unbound on my OMV server, and referenced it in my Pihole/Docker install by OMV's IP address. Cached entries are blazingly fast and the entire DNS function is much more secure. For those who may be inclined to set up unbound it's a real improvement over ISP and public resolvers. _____________________________________________________________ The differences between the How-To and getting Unbound to work on OMV, with Pi-hole running in a Docker. - Install unbound on your OMV server -The …

    Got it working between the 2 IP addresses. I had to install dnsutils on this particular OMV box but, other than that, it was pretty straight forward. Now, to test it a bit. It may still be possible that this function (unbound) might work with Pi-Hole, on an R-PI.

    Yeah - you have the OMV DNS plugin installed (for DHCP). I'm trying to config it right now.

    When using a Docker with a separate IP address, I was assuming that the OMV host IP (where unbound is installed) would have to be DNS server. I haven't has a chance to test that assumption, as it would mean changing the settings recommended in the How-To considerably. (And I'm reluctant to muck around with my backup server because, being at the new house, it's now my primary server. )

    It is possible to get inside of one of those containers on the CLI, but the barriers to getting out again when trying to add a package from an external source..... ______________________________________________________ So, in place of the custom IP in pi-hole (the How-To has it as 127.0.0.1 the local host), did you use your OMV server's IP address?

    Quote from geaves: “Have you had any issues regarding Pi-Hole? ” Actually, the only issue I had recently was the loss of historic data. I shut down my server for a week and on a restart, for some reason, the old data wasn't there. (That was a first.) The problem you're having may be related to updating the Docker plugin. I read a few other threads that indicate (didn't notice anything conclusive) that something changed with either Docker or the plugin itself). As usual, I'm hanging back. I can't…
