Re: Show Us your home server

HP 260 G1. Haswell Celeron 2957u, 4GB RAM, 32GB SSD and going to drop in an existing 1TB HDD - fantastic value for £88 and it's tiny!!!

Re: Setup ad blocking on HDA

As I say, I'm new to Fedora so unsure if im doing it right. My Ethernet interface is enp1s0. I was creating another ifcfg file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts for enp1s0:0 with a new IP address to host pixelserv, except it doesn't work on Amahi 7 (it did work on Fedora 21). The active Ethernet int...

Re: Setup ad blocking on HDA

I'm gonna have a go on Fedora 19 now... one thing I've noticed is that the virtual ethernet interface doesn't survive a reboot - not sure if this is a quirk of Fedora or something else.

Re: Setup ad blocking on HDA

Managed to get it running last night! Want to make sure there's no bugs, but I'll start writing things up ready for a wiki entry! One thing to note is this was on Fedora 21, it might not work on 19.

Any chance of a credit for IPSec vpn? :lol:

Re: Setup ad blocking on HDA

I do like the fact I can take care of ads with OpenDNS, but where possible I'd like to leave it local and I can retain a bit more local control. So far, regarding ad-blocking done directly on the HDA, I've setup a new interface on the HDA with a separate IP address which is now hosting pixelserv (a ...

Re: Setup ad blocking on HDA

Thanks, completely overlooked doing it that way.

I've seen mentions of it - but does Amahi definitely use BIND to handle DNS resolution? I'll try and have a go at piecing together how it works!

Setup ad blocking on HDA

Now I know this can be a touchy subject, but I hope you guys feel like you'd be able to offer some support. Currently, my ddwrt router handles ad blocking through effective poison DNS and pixelserv. It handles it for all the network, and gives me the option of changing what I put on the whitelist, a...
