    I can't connect to VPN. I have run VPN on this Raspberry Pi via IPsec. All of a sudden it stopped working. I tried installing IPsec on another Raspberry Pi, with no success, the same problem. I can't connect.

    Hello everyone! I am trying to get started with ELK and I am facing a very frustrating situation. I am trying to use the stack with Docker Compose. I have tried 2 versions: and also but they both have the same problem. I inspected the Docker container logs and I get some weird errors:

    Production-ready fullstack but simple mail server (SMTP, IMAP, LDAP, Antispam, Antivirus, etc.) running inside a container.

    Project mention: Alternative to MailCow | /r/selfhosted | 2023-06-04

    I can recommend Docker mailserver (it also works with Podman). It is already pretty lightweight but you can even make it lighter and it has an active community as well as regular updates.

    Project mention: Fedora Atomic Desktops | | 2024-02-09

    I use containerized versions of things, ubuntu and chainguard images mostly.

    You can always create containers with init if that's how you want to do that though. Some distros publish images that come that way:

    Project mention: Has anyone managed to install with the visual selector? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-11-29

    Edit: I got some parts of it running. This video is very helpful. I gave up on the official docker repository for change detection io and switched to the LSIO version. I had to first install and run the docker Selenium container (available here). I installed the standalone version of Chrome from that page. Now I added one line to the docker-compose.yml in the environment section (as mentioned in the video. I did not add BASE_URL) and that was "WEBDRIVER_URL=" (this has to be an actual IP address, can't use "localhost" or anything else. I redeployed the container and the webdriver worked.

  • acme-companion

    Automated ACME SSL certificate generation for nginx-proxy

    Project mention: Wireguard (docker-compose) has stopped being able to connect to the internet. | /r/WireGuard | 2023-07-10

    My hunch is that because I decided to include the acme-companion image in this nginx setup, that maybe it has something to do with the SSL certs? The only other thing I could think of is that I had to combine the networks in order for nginx-proxy and Sonarr both to be able to see my transmission instance via:

    Sentry, feature-complete and packaged up for low-volume deployments and proofs-of-concept

    Project mention: Sentry new TOS to use data to train AI with no opt-out | | 2024-01-05

    Docker image to run an IPsec VPN server, with IPsec/L2TP, Cisco IPsec and IKEv2

    Project mention: Selfhosted VPN advice for Homelab Access | /r/homelab | 2023-07-10

    IPSEC-L2TP is built into everything. No clients required on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Linux, etc. Great Docker container for cutting through most of the difficulty here:

    Project mention: Remote Controlling an HP 1670G Logic Analyzer with a Linux PC X Server | | 2023-12-27

    I don't know anything about Xwayland, but according there's this sentence in this socat writeup:

    > If you want to access an X server that does not provide -listen tcp (Xwayland) or just did not have enabled it during startup (like most likely your host Xorg), you can use socat to provide TCP/IP access.

    Docker container running Transmission torrent client with WebUI over an OpenVPN tunnel

    Project mention: 'Canada Is a Video Piracy Hotspot While Brazil Sees Piracy in Decline' | | 2024-01-21

    I think you’re in a different bubble. If no one used vpn for torrents why is one of the top docker images for transmission one to support vpns? No ones spending money on a seed box that’s just casually torrenting.

  • docker-openldap

    OpenLDAP container image 🐳🌴

    Project mention: Question: How to Use LDAP Authentication and User Accounts On TAK Servers | /r/ATAK | 2023-07-09

    I'm entirely unfamiliar with overlays. I don't believe I've configured any on my OpenLDAP server, as it is just a default docker image I've populated with some OUs and users.
