    Wrong time zone, right time?

    This is a funky issue and in fairness I'm not sure if I've had this forever. The other day I was checking the logs in my Orbi with Voxel and noticed the time was wrong.

    Vnstat on Orbi

    Has anyone tried running vnstat and generating static output from vnstati on the Orbi? I’ve been hoping Orbi would add this but given the Circle offering I’m guessing this would cannibalize some of that market so I don’t think it’ll ever happen. my need is simple I would like basic stats to be...

    smb.conf from /mnt/sda1/overlay isn't copied at boot

    Today I was fiddling with my Orbi configuration running Voxel and wanted to reboot to make sure everything was clean. After reboot all my custom configuration started as expected, i.e. DNSCrypt, but strangely Samba went back to Voxel's default. I am confident I put the files in the right place...

    OpenVPN on Orbi for Transmission on Voxel

    I was reading yesterday how to configure the openVPN client on my Orbi and how to exclude certain clients. What I am thinking of is almost the opposite, not using the VPN for anything EXCEPT for a specific service on the Orbi. There are a lot of benefits to use a VPN as an anonymizer, but in a...
