  • Trying to set up a VPN on a Raspberry Pi, but I can't seem to configure ddclient properly
    Thanks, going to try https://pivpn.io/ first I think, but will bear that in mind.
  • Need to write to a 5.25 floppy...
    I love the raspberry pi! Have you heard of a pihole ? It's a whole network ad block that runs on your pi. Doesn't get every ad but it gets most! You could also mix that with a pivpnand have network ad blocking when you are on the go!
  • Need some ideas!
    To give some examples, you can build: file storage, media center, house automation, VPS and so on.
  • "RAID is never a backup", what is the backup then?
    reddit.com/r/synology | 2021-09-15
    I use a rapsberry pi 3b with raspbian and then deployed the https://pivpn.io install script on it, which gives the option for either wireguard or openvpn server deployment.
  • would a website detect a dedicated DNS?
    The simplest and most reliable solution would be to have your friend tunnel through your own home connection. PiVPN on a Raspberry Pi with your router forwarding UDP port 1194 (or whatever custom port you may have chose in the installer) will get the job done :)

    reddit.com/r/synology | 2021-08-25
    In my case I use the pi as a vpn server to be able to conect from remote to my home network. I put the install script from https://pivpn.io on it and selected wireguard as vpn server. Gives a simlle cli interface to create vpn client profiles.
  • Wake up this morning and see this on my 3D printer (I use octoprint and now I’m scared)
    The same Pi that has OctoPrint running on it (via the standard OctoPi image/distro) also runs a VPN server, which allows me to VPN-in to Home from anywhere. This is enabled by a combination of https://pivpn.io/ (which is a script to make configuring OpenVPN or Wireguard much easier), my ISP giving me a properly-static IPv4 address, and that same ISP fully allowing home-server deployment. If your ISP is more typical, there will be more hoops to jump through (probably needing a dynamic-DNS service at minimum).
  • How to make your Synology NAS more secure (Synology official documentation)
    reddit.com/r/synology | 2021-08-13
    However I myself preferred running a vpn server not on the nas itself but rather seperately, in my case on a raspberry pi using https://pivpn.io setup using Wireguard (which is a bit more lightweight than openvpn which pivpn also supports). Pivpn has a simple cli command to create new vpn client configurations and removes a lot of possible hassles of configuring the vpn server. Is also easier to keep up to date, not depending on synology.
  • Best Remote Access Plugin?
    reddit.com/r/octoprint | 2021-08-07
    Best thing would be not using remote access plugins at all as they usually require the manual opening of ports on your router with hardly any authentication when you get in which can be a security risk. A much better option would be to install a vpn server on the pi running octoprint, only open that port on your router and connect to the vpn to remotely monitor your print. With a vpn, you need to be authenticated when you connect which is done through the key and password used during setup. Plus, then you have access to your whole network and not just the octopi page. Checkout pivpn.io to start. Its a super easy install script that lets you use openvpn or wireguard as a vpn server. dm me if you have any questions.
  • Whats the best way to safely setup a Raspberry Pi to SSH into it and access hosted websites from outside the local network ?
    Take a look at PiVPN. It's a script that makes setting up OpenVPN or Wireguard very easy.

  • Better to run on a beefy VM or a RPi for speed?
    reddit.com/r/pihole | 2021-08-05
    I used pivpn to setup wireguard. It was a breeze.
