    I use this player to access windows shared folder and synology shared folder without any issue. I didn't install any DLNA service.

    DLNA is built into windows, no installation required. I'm not familiar with the Synology software but I wouldn't be surprised if it had DLNA built in as well. enabling that service allowed my dad's roku to see the shared media folders on the OMV box I set up for him.

    Windows doesn't call it DLNA, synology may not as well but here's a link on how it's set up on windows.…into-a-dlna-media-server/

    When doing updates I saw that there were a lot of unneeded firmware updates for wireless hardware that this machine doesn't have (it's a lenovo desktop) and furthermore wouldn't even see because I just installed it into a proxmox VM (so it has the minimal hardware required). I figured from reading another thread How to remove unused firmware packages from Updates that I could just remove them using apt-get remove <nonexistant hardware firmware> and everything was going great until I got to the last package wpasupplicant. when i did that it removed openmediavault and everything that went with it.

    Why would OMV list wpasupplicant as a dependency?

    How hard would it be to make a module out of this?
    it would have to do the following;

    • install open-vpn
    • download and extract all the conf files from PIA (i imagine other providers may be similar)
    • store the user pass in a txt file
    • modify selected config file to point to the user/pass file (change 2 lines) (i would copy the selected file naming it something friendly and modify that)
    • create the shell script to run the vpn software with the selected config file
    • be able to turn off/disable/uninstall the vpn software
    • test the connection (use wget and display the text).

    you mentioned openvpn, assuming you mean as a client. you could run it on the NAS but then only the nas will connect to the vpn (nothing wrong with this), it's a pain to find the info and since I just have set up a connection to private internet access myself today I give you this OpenVPN + PIA - Complete Idiots Guide? other providers will differ

    alternatively you could have your router connect to the VPN and have your entire house protected... though i don't know if your ASUS will be up to snuff, I'm actually planning on setting up a box to run pfsense with the entire house protected.

    I did something similar, for some reason my searches didn't bring up this thread
    all outgoing traffic goes on the tunnel, everything local stays local. I've quoted the instructions I used from PIA for posterity.

    key words: private internet access, openvpn, transmission, pia

    First I followed the directions at this link https://www.privateinternetacc…mment/33974#Comment_33974 except I didn't run it.

    then I followed the instructions at this link https://www.privateinternetacc…e-start-at-boot-linux-vpn
    it isn't clear but the author intends the file to be in /etc/init.d/ and have it named "vpn" . Because my ovpn file had spaces in the name I copied it to be another easier to use name.

    At first I was going to try to make only certain apps use the VPN and thought that I had to enable the VPN per app but it turns out that once the VPN client is running all outgoing traffic runs on the VPN. I'm good with that.

    Transmission won't work out of the box though you have to hunt for a setting - Micro Transport Protocol (µTP) ---- Enable µTP. should be disabled.

    to test if my VPN was working I did two things.

    from the command line I did wget this downloads a text with the ip address used to connect.

    then I went to, grabbed the magnetic link and uploaded it to Transmission. This will tell you the IP address Transmission is using.

    For some reason my time isn't updating on the OMV server. I've had it update correctly on boot (though last reboot didn't fix that). have tried restarting the ntpd service as well

    Just bought an ASRock H110M-DGS in February along with a G4600. If the bios had been recent I would have been a happy camper, instead it took ASRock two months to get me a working bios to work with Kaby Lake. I'd also have been a happy camper if they actually sent the bios the first time they said they sent it, then the second time when they insisted they sent it apparently they didn't include sufficient postage and it took calling over several days and demands for a supervisor to get them to fed ex it, it showed up a week after that.

    The G4xxx is apparently equivalent to sky lake i3 with x.265 encoder/decoder built in. I've used mine to encode some DVDs and Blue-rays and it flew along (compared to my old computer).

    The board form factor is listed as Micro ATX but it's actually a lot smaller, 7.5"x7.4" I think it could be shoehorned into some ITX or DTX cases. Not saying buy this mb, rather some boards out there might be small enough to fit in the smaller cases, particularly if the case is designed for a 10" video card.

    I'm attempting to install omv-zoneminder on 2.2.13 stone burner following the directions at

    I made it to "dpkg-checkbuilddeps" and managed to install all the missing dependencies from wheezy-backports except one, libgnutls-openssl-dev

    root@omv-lisa:/zoneminder/ZoneMinder# dpkg-checkbuilddeps
    dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: libgnutls-openssl-dev

    I found libgnutls-openssl-dev is part of libgnutls28-dev in sid but if I try to install that it rips out libcurl4-gnutls-dev and still lists that libgnutls-openssl-dev is not installed

    root@omv-lisa:/zoneminder/ZoneMinder# dpkg-checkbuilddeps
    dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: libcurl4-gnutls-dev libgnutls-openssl-dev

    if I search debian it comes up with no hits for that package.…09dev&xFILTERS=--A&xDB=en
