    What kind of rookie would forget to change his/her power settings and allow their miner to go to sleep???

    I have been taking a few minutes to actually define the Pool Coin for each of the coins it mines. When an unspecified coin us listed, look in the pools tab in the bottom dashboard. You MPH pool will have a port number. You can take that back to the main page at MHP.com find it in the listings there, by port. Then right click on the coin, choose Define Pool Coin, and select the coin. Its supposed to help AM do a better job of picking coins...and...you now can see the exact coin you are mining.

    Dave, Synology knocked out of the park with this app. My whole family loves the application... We can really spend more looking at our photos and less time looking for them or worrying about organizing them, The 'people, subjects and places is outstanding and almost spot on. Want to see all the pictures with birds? Just click on birds.....AMAZING to say the least. I was using Plex for my photos, No more. Screen shot of the default albums from my moments below-

    I have no idea on Windows 10 being able to do it, but NIC Teaming and Link Aggregation are kind of the same thing. Although technically not correct I consider NIC Teaming to be switch independent (Windows can do teaming where it does not matter to the server if the switch supports aggregation or not), whereas Aggregation I consider it to be where both parties (switch and server) support the correct LACP protocols and can do a "better" job of link aggregation. One thing I will say is that do not think that you will get more bandwidth, overall yes you will get more but a single stream will be limited to whatever the bandwidth of the connected link is (i.e. a team of 2x 1GBE cards will give you aggregate bandwidth of 2GB, however the maximum of a single stream will still be 1GBE as it is only on one card) some tasks and operating systems can utilise both links by utilising multiple streams for the transfer, but some cannot, think of it as multiple cores/processors some software can handle multiple cores/processors and scale their ability to utilise this extra resources, some cannot

    The TP-Link is more expensive than the Asus and I can't tell if it comes with a low profile bracket, it looks too tall. You may want to look at installing a USB 3.0 card and using a USB 3.0 WiFi adapter. I know the cheaper card is 2.4Ghz only, it is only 802.11n so it won't go any faster on 5Ghz. You may want to look for a used card on eBay if you want a faster card for less money. If you are only 3M from the router, are you sure you can't use an Ethernet cable?

    You need it to be PCIe x1 and low profile. The more you spend the faster connection you get. In your price range I would look at: Asus PCE-AC51 $30 https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/PCE-AC51/ Edimax Network EW-7612PIN V2 N300 $23 http://www.edimax.com/edimax/merchandise/merchandise_detail/data/edimax/au/wireless_adapters_n300/ew-7612pin_v2/

    Thanks for this. I was already planning to use a non-standard port. It's a 'trick' my father taught me. He said I don't need to change the default port on a server or computer: I can use my router/gateway to accept a non-standard port and reroute it to the default port on the destination computer. For example, start up a Remote Desktop session on a client computer, using port 24567, and have my router send it to the Remote Desktop host on port 3389. It works great. I will sure look into using a standard account. After, pretty much all I'm doing is printing.

    This is a cool article about BitDefender "approving" of JSECoins mining methods via javascript. From what I have seen it is almost undetectable to your PC as it doesn't hit the CPU very hard at all. https://jsecoin.com/jsecoin-bitdefender-white-listing-and-new-api-functions/ I may expand the test to a few more pages here at RESET Forums. If you want to see how it works, go here - https://homeservershow.com/miner If you would like to check it out, click here - JSECoin If you join, both of us will get a little bonus. You can then mine your own coins via a browser tab. When the day comes, transfer them to an exchange, and do what you want with them! Sell, trade, etc.

    OK, I officially give up on OpenVPN. After more research, especially looking at the log files on the server and client, I realised that the instructions on https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Easy_Windows_Guide are rubbish. There are so many inconsistencies between what the instructions say, and what actually happens when you carry them out, that it's almost impossible for someone who is not a VPN guru to figure out what's going on. For example, the instructions say to copy a file named dh1024.pem to a directory. It turns out there is no such file; it's actually called dh2048.pem. OK, so no big deal, just copy dh2048.pem to the directory. Except, the actual encryption is done using 4096, not 1024 or 2048. So, when OpenVPN-GUI tries to initialise, it fails. That's just one example; there are a bunch of others. I don't have the knowledge to sort them out. @mattb75, I'm not pointing this out as any kind of criticism of you. I'm sure you pointed me to the guide in good faith, and I thank you for the effort. Rather, I'm giving a warning to anyone else who might read this thread and be tempted to set up OpenVPN themselves. I set up RDP on the ION 330 and linked to it from the laptop. No problems. Took all of 5 min.

    Epson has a similar feature but, like I said, it totally screwed up on this one document. I also just realized I totally missed something regarding the OpenVPN: it has to be run on both the server and the client. I didn't start it on the server So, I've started the OpenVPN setup process again. It's now doing the build-dh. I'm going to leave it doing that while I go to bed and look at it again in the morning. Also, I remembered that I have a couple of my father's old laptops here. One has Win7x32 on it, so I'm going to use it to test OpenVPN. Maybe I'll get it sorted out yet.....

    What hardware did you install it on. I have never had a Synology box due to their very crappy (ie slow as molasses) hardware. If I can put it on an i7 and then use it as a NAS and maybe a Plex server I may have to investigate this further because my WHS V1 is getting old.

    I did not use the app. I just logged into their web interface using the assigned DHCP IP. I set static IP's for each one and then took them outside to install. I never used the QR codes. I set them up in blue Iris before installing outside as well. That allowed me to pull my phone out and pull up the blue Iris app so I could see if I like where I have the camera pointed before finishing the install.

    eero covers a larger sq. foot house better than Orbi does at a lower price point. Sure, I can paint with Orbi like crazy but it costs more in the end. Not that I don't love a good Orbi. Strong signal and good coverage. I just got into eero first.

    Did you find what you were looking for ? I would suggest that the file you need is SP64420.exe bios update when I tried to get it from HP I was told I needed an enterprise support package however after some while talking to the support guy he emailed it across to me for free. After updating my N40 and N54 both could access the internet on Windows 10

    OK, so I ended up taking a slightly different approach on the basis that we're assuming that the controller didn't do anything RAID-related to the disks. I purchased a PCI-E 4 Port SATA card and connected this to another server. I then attached the SATA disks to each of the four ports and powered on. On the POST screen the SATA card was displayed and showed only three disks. Through process of elimination, I confirmed that port 4 on the card wasn't working (typical!). Anyway, as I'd setup the Storage Space with a Pool with parity, I speculated this was the same as having RAID5 and losing one disk. I let Windows completely boot and the storage pool automatically mounted and the data was available in Windows Explorer. I'm now in the process of copying it across the network to a Synology NAS. Strange thing is even with just the three drives it's copy very quickly (120MB/sec), so that's great. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks again for your help.

    OK,,,, I found my inventory of LSI cards. Unfortunately, I did not have a 9260, but I do have a 9240. The problem with the 9240 or 9260 is the physical connection. They have their ports near the bracket and the chassis blocks the SFF-8087 connections. The picture below is a HP/LSI HBA. To fit in a MS Gen10 the RAID card needs to have the port on the far end of the card: Physically, a 9361 should fit, but you would need a cable to convert SFF-8643 to SFF-8087. A 9261 should fit and would not require a cable converter.

    I would like to gather up all your Awesome Miner Tips and Tricks. Possibly help me out and anyone new to mining with it. I could use some help on restarting a machine if I'm not around and it stops producing. I have one machine that has been tricky. Not sure why. After you start mining. Make sure your miner doesn't take a nap! Power Options - Never Sleep Recover on a reboot/BSOD/Etc Set Awesome Miner to Auto Start when Windows starts Tell Windows to login automatically. Start Run Type in netplwiz uncheck the top box requiring password Click Apply Type in your password Now, how to tell Awesome Miner to auto start mining when the app fires up? Anyone?

    IEEE 802.3af-2003e are two standards for a reason, the first standard, 802.3af (or more correctly IEEE 802.3af-2003 ) delivers 15.4 watts of energy down the lines, as devices developed and required more power (WAP's mostly) then there was a need to get more power over the PoE lines and 802.3at (IEEE 802.3at-2009) was released to allow for this by upping the allowed power delivery to 25.5 watts. Both these standards only allow for a limited number of pairs. Now comes the interesting part, as best I have been able to find uPoE, which is the Cisco solution does not seem to be the same as the new IEEE standard (IEEE 802.3bt) which seems to be on track for ratification this year. The new IEEE standard allows for power across all four pairs (8 conductors) of the cable and is looking at allowing power over the 2.5GBE, 5GBE and 10GBE standards. Cisco's uPoE does work on 2.5GBE and 5GBE networks. The other thing to note that Cisco's uPoE is 60W, whilst the 802.3bt is introducing ideally two new classes/types of delivery allowing for 55watt in Type 3 and somewhere between 90 and 100 watts in Type 4 (802.3af is Type 1 802.3at is Type 2)

    I have not resumed with NH. I was using an external wallet (Coinbase) when they were "hacked". I was sitting at 0.0089 BTC so I was just a few days away from reaching 0.01BTC where it would have paid out to the external wallet. Now I see (as you have pointed out) they are messing with external wallets. They have them on hold and are looking at alternative cryptocurrency? No thanks. I guess I will give Awesome Miner or MPH a try. I only have 1 GPU for mining at this time so I can't get crazy. My next step is going to cost me money if I try and expand because I need a new motherboard, larger power supply and additional GPU cards.

    I just want to check the specs, what is the model number of the Barracuda? A four drive RAID10 performs similar to a two drive RAID0. The current 7200rpm Barracuda like the ST4000DM006 have a sustained transfer rate of 220MB/s, so I would expect to see at a minimum numbers of 440MB/s transfer rates. Maximum transfer rate would be from the cache for small bursts theoretically 6Gb/s with two drives 12Gb/s or 1500MB/s, but the cache is only 128MB. If you got 592.36 MB/s that seems like the performance I would expect. There are several RAID calculators out there, none are perfect, but this one seems acurate: http://wintelguy.com/raidperf.pl

    Interesting. My current WSE12R2 is a full tower Fractal Design Define XL. http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/discontinued-products/define-xl-black-pearl Core i5-3570K with 32 GB RAM. Running 8 x 3 TB WD Red HDDs in a RAID6 array. Also 2 SSDs. Would love to shrink down my server’s footprint with a mini ITX build if I could exceed the performance of my current build, but using cooler, lower power Motherboard, CPU and RAM. And existing HDDs. Not quite sure what hardware that means just yet.

    On my previous WHSv1, and current WHS2011, I'm not running any AV. I may well do the same for 2012. I don't use my servers to surf the web (except for Windows Update) so I think I'm pretty safe.
