    I am still here just lurking

    I've been working for almost a year now as a data engineer. It's the best job I have ever had. We do a ton of stuff on cloud. So I've not done much other than some random plex server stuff, some pi-hole things, and a pfsense box (thank you, thank you, thank you to the forum folks who responded...

    Pfsense IPv6 help!

    I wanted to start moving away from my crappy ISP cable-modem/router/firewall/wireless-AP and have been doing so for a while now. It has been determined that if I call up my ISP they can turn the modem into bridge mode thereby making it, for all-intents-and-purposes a dumb modem and my pfsense...

    Virtualization of pfsense and others, pre check

    My goal is to consolidate a few boxes onto one -- none are mission critical really so if the VM host I want to migrate them to goes down and takes them too then that's ok. I have a dedicated (franken-plex box -- that is just janky and needs to get decommissioned) and a few development servers...

    Network setup help

    So here’s the diagram: double line with a chevron means wired and single line means wireless. Legend is also in the image. whatI would like to do is use a pfsense VM (can’t make it a hardware unit for reasons outside of this thread) for routing and the firewall and DHCP because the wireless...

    Low power zen 2 better per watt than Apple A series?

    This came up over at HN: “So far, per-watt and relative to the amount of I/O, Zen 2 Low-power is already more efficient than anything Apple has put out so far. So I don't think it would have that much of an impact.” I asked the op for benchmarks but this is news to me: I mean they’re different...

    ISP modem router Wi-Fi hw use DMZ to get around bridging?

    So I can’t bridge my modem/router thing but I did think that perhaps I could do the following: 1. disable dhcp, firewall, etc 2. Create a DMZ endpoint with an ip of say 3. Use separate pfsense firewall and router using the DMZ endpoint as if it were the WAN ip of a dumb simple...

    So I’ve got a modem + router from Vodafone (see attached image) and I connected to it the other day to see if I could disable the routing and it doesn’t look like I can. That’s annoying. so it’s set to do DHCP at there’s a cable from it to a layer 2 switch that connects to the...

    How to create ZFS for easy drive swapping between computers?

    I just picked up two HDDs for a ZFS mirror that I will pass through via Hyper-V to a VM for the time being until I decide (if/when) to build a dedicated box. In that vein it would be nice to create the ZFS pool such that I can just do a pool export and then take the drives and put them in this...

    First of all Happy Thanksgiving to anyone celebrating. I did something stupid. We are having company over for the holiday and I went to clean the leather couch and applied cleaner onto it directly so now it's stained. Am I doomed or has anyone done this and fixed it? If so what did you do? The...
