    Dual wan port forwarding

    When you explained how you fixed this on the command line, I understood: Port forwarding is configured in the moment based on the WAN setup you have. In the user interface, I removed my port forwarding configuration, and readded it; the difference being that now I had a dual-wan setup. It worked.

    Dual PPPoE Wan

    Yikes 7 years later and wishing this were possible. No?

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    The problem is "officially solved" at this point with VPN inside the guest virtual machine. Without the tunnel, we were getting blocked by the number of outbound connections. Based on the number of connections out of "30,000" listed in the network status, I don't think this was the merlin...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    don’t get me wrong… wire guard is a potentially great solution to speed up the VPN … and I will pursue it through a provider. I think security wise ngrok is more seasoned but it is not the same type of system. I believe in closed source software and in fact I spent half of my life making it...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Looks like I will have to beg to get the fiber connected; so much for that. As for being my own server, I am not sure what that solves. First, I am double NAT'd so I need a zero trust endpoint like ngrok just to connect. I do use that. I'm trying to get data out quickly to a service without...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Ok Interesting @heysoundude ... we're getting back to the wireguard thing now. Although the VPN applied to the validator fixed my network, the validator can not keep up due to the slowness of the VPN. Wireguard or Lightway (what ExpressVPN supports) would really speed things up. I am willing...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Update: Using VPN director and a VPN endpoint seems to have solved the resource starvation I was having on the LAN. I'm not sure why but I don't know enough about how the TUN interface works. Certainly good news though! The performance is not great (Validator is getting behind) but at least...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Note: Solana validator here is "non-voting" so no incoming connections. That's why it seems to work with no port forwarding or other tricks. So @heysoundude no wallets looking for validators. We're just seeing how healthy it can run on my machine. So far very well except for the number of...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    I don't know. I have what is practically speaking "gigabit" up and down... inside an apartment building. REALLY lucky. Each apartment seems to have the ethernet WAN cable and an optical fiber cable... but no ONT. When I asked if I could set up Fiber for myself last year they said no... however...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    This is the number of network connections being maintained vs active. I would like to figure out how to time these out. @Morris I get your point but I can't make any connections outbound. DNS queries are not the connections I'm having- they just all fail. I rate limited the application for a...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Great stuff. First to be clear, the problem really is not DNS itself here, but the ability to make ANY outbound connections. I think that's more or less a given at this point. This generates a side question: If I only specify a SINGLE DNS over TLS server... do you think Stubby will keep that...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    If it wasn't clear earlier- All DNS queries on my intranet are working. That means any static hosts on my network get resolved quickly. It's only the DNS queries that depend on an upstream server that are failing. I apologize for not explicitly mentioning that. This makes me think at least a...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    I noticed something interesting when running stubby -l: [14:00:51.864278] STUBBY: Stubby version: Stubby 0.4.0 [14:00:51.867848] STUBBY: Read config from file /etc/stubby/stubby.yml [14:00:51.868272] STUBBY: DNSSEC Validation is OFF [14:00:51.868323] STUBBY: Transport list is...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    1st post> I would not have tried DNS over TLS except for the fact that I thought that using a TCP based DNS service might actually help DNS queries wade through the sea of UDP traffic. 2nd post> Note that I did try plain vanilla DNS first and it was failing- which is why I added the DOT...

    DNS failing with heavy UDP traffic

    Definitely spoke too soon. The validator had stopped chatting on the peer network. Once it begain again stubby tells a tale of woes: [00:50:43.162185] STUBBY: (NOTE a Strict Profile only applies when TLS is the ONLY transport!!) [00:50:43.162234] STUBBY: Starting DAEMON.... [00:50:45.762561]...
