    Posted the thread OMV 5.x (beta) Portainer.

    Thread
    If there is a move to drop the Docker plugin for Portainer, why not use Cockpit, it's easier to use and understand and not as daunting as Portainer. I've tagged the OMV version as 5 purely for this thread.

    Have you tested the network speed? Perhaps using iPerf? You run iPerf on two computers in the same network and it tells you how fast the network connection is. You should get speeds corresponding to the type of network you use. If not you need to…

    New update – I had an idea. I mounted an external USB drive on the OMV server, formatted it, added a directory and set the access to my new user. And it works. Then, I guess my issues come from technical access rights at the level of the disk…

    In your web browser, not the webUI. What I meant was make sure you're on the webUI URL. On most browsers, holding Cntrl and clicking Refresh.. clears the cache for that URL and reloads it without affecting your other cache data. It's a good thing to…

    Thanks. I guess I'll skip it then. For future reference, though, where's the Refresh button in the webUI? Here's what I'm looking at:forum.openmediavault.org/index…adab534938ed8934c35ae0309

    In your VPN settings under routing you have 172.17.0.0/16. Where did that come from? I would have the private network of the machine there. But I do not use this VPN setup myself. If I needed inward VPN access to my network, it would be running on the…

    Try holding Control and clicking the Refresh button while on the OMV webUI... Regardless.. Shellinabox will not be ported to OMV 5 here in a few weeks when it releases, and I would not anticipate getting a ton of support trouble shooting this. If you…

    Newb here. I'm following along with the Beginner OMV Raspberry Pi installation video, installing OMV 4 on a Pi 4. I'm 45 seconds from the end with no problems until the part where Shellinabox gets set-up under Services. As soon as I click on…

    You need to be using the same exact URL address that you would use when connecting from your LAN. Obfuscating private IP address with x.x is pointless, so stop doing that. You are trying this from another network such as a cell phone, right? If you can…

    Thank you @gderf for your response. I have tried my local OMV IP as "https://192.168.x.x:943/admin" when connected through OpenVPN and it still does not work. But then again, 192.168.x.x:943 is the OpenVPN address on my local network on OMV. Even if I do…

    To connect to your OMV via an OpenVPN connection, you need to use the local, private IP address of your OMV machine once you have established the VPN connection. Using the WAN address that your OMV is connected to, or any domain name that resolves to…
