Re: VPN client doesn't work after reboot

I would also wonder if ip4 forwarding hasn't survived the reboot and is now disabled?

See here for how to check and if needed enable.

Re: File Format for R-Pi 4 media centre

If they're spanned (RAID0) or mirrored (RAID1, at least for 2 drives) then they're not JBOD. JBOD means they are individual disks and not connected in any way. They operate entirely independently of one another, and one failing does not affect any other drive, but the data is lost as it is equally n...

Re: Adafruit IO

I think I might have had confusion between the python2 and python3 pip installs. I've just tried it again from scratch with an install of python3-pip and this time it's worked. I forget offhand which dependency was messing up - it was requesting an upgrade of something and failed to do that. I didn'...

Adafruit IO

Would it be possible to put together something to support and enable Adafruit IO? https://adafruit-io-python-client.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html https://io.adafruit.com/ Quite a handy method (combined with IFTTT and a bit of Python) to control various other servers and IoT stuff via API's. Fo...

Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

Yes, that does seem like the same issue I have. To be clear I don't have any issue with Wireguard at all, the issue is with the PiVPN install (which is used for OpenVPN, not Wireguard). Wireguard is installed via dietpi-software and has no issue. It sounds like the issue described on Github is affec...

Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

Joulinar - on my Pi both WG and PiVPN (hosting OpenVPN) are installed, both via dietpi-software. Would that explain why I have to set the forwarding by script at reboot otherwise the OpenVPN cannot connect to anything outside the Pi (to my network or the Internet)? It's all working fine now, but on...

Re: WireGuard Updates not available

More generally, if you haven't already I would suggest looking into both fail2ban and unattended-upgrades as packages that might be useful to you (although the latter takes a little configuring to get running properly). The former can be installed within DietPi, the latter would be via apt or apt-get.

Re: Wireguard - No internet access with PiHole

One comment on that change - I had to do it on my Pi (hosting both Wireguard and PiVPN) and after reboot the change reverted (and PiVPN lost access to anything outside of the Pi). As a temporary measure I've set up a systemd service to run a script setting that traffic forwarding again on boot-up, b...

Re: PiVPN Not Setting Internet Traffic Forwarding (With Temporary Fix)

To come back to this one for a moment, I looked into sysctl.conf and see the line net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1 is correctly in there and uncommented, so in theory this should be set on reboot. However on my system the value is still resetting to zero at every reboot? So there's something wrong here that'...

PiVPN Not Setting Internet Traffic Forwarding (With Temporary Fix)

Just thought I'd report this here in case anyone else falls over it. Been rebuilding my VPN box (Pi2 with DietPi, Wireguard, PiVPN [for OpenVPN] and a few bits like Fail2Ban and RPI Monitor) and came across the problem with the OpenVPN server. It sets up fine and devices can connect to it via profil...
