    2o finally outgrew the Raspberry Pi 4!
    We're now on a Dell r330 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1280 v5 @ 3.70GHz 64GB RAM running under a ProxMox hypervisor!

    That's quite an upgrade. Congrats! You'll enjoy Proxmox, if you haven't used it before.

    I just moved my BBS from a bare-metal laptop to my Proxmoxbox, and it's running nicely.

    If you haven't seen it, check out http://tteck.github.io/Proxmox/ for some great helper scripts. I've taken most of my homelab apps I had running in a Docker host into their own LXC containers, and am happy with them.

    Yea; the server isn't new - but moving 2o over to it is. At any rate, its going OK - a few things are broken, but this setup will be infinitely better when fully complete.

    Yep! Got you just fine!

    Perfect; FTNs look to be moving along just fine.

    Sweet - yea, the server isn't new but moving 2o to it is. I'm most excited about the ease of backups using ProxMox... heck, even if by hand I can just copy the one .qcow file and thats a good backup. Anyway, I'm st0ked that 2o will be on a easier to maintain platform now.

    If you haven't seen it, check out http://tteck.github.io/Proxmox/ for
    some great helper scripts. I've taken most of my homelab apps I had running in a Docker host into their own LXC containers, and am happy
    with them.

    Thanks for the github suggestion, I'll take a peek... I've done some ProxMox mods, like removing that warning when you load up and switching to the free repositories... I love it.

    It'll be fun to dig in to some more scripts.

    I've seen ESXi running on a Pi 4; if you had the ability to run LXC
    containers natively you could load up a Pi nicely and keep the services somewhat separate.

    I started running Proxmox and set up a docker host to run containers in, but I've found lots of LXC containers online; instead of adding a level of complication, I can run each service in a container that's visible to
    Proxmox. Admittedly, I don't need orchestration, I just want to run services in a way that minimizes interference with each other.

    I just recently put together my first thing with a Raspberry Pi (a music synthesizer with a kit from a group called Zynthian). I think it's pretty cool what you can do with a Raspberry Pi - There seems to be a good following for them now, with people & groups making custom cases & accessories for the Pi.

    I already know what I want to do next for a Pi-based project - There's a kit made by Retroflag for a handheld retro game console, which uses a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09NJMV32N/

    The Compute Module 4 is sold separately though, and it seems it's currently sold out everywhere and hard to find (probably due to the recent computer chip shortages), so I'm having to wait.

    Yup, it works well.

    I have it on the Pi 4 8G, with 3 VMs, running microk8s, nothing on there really - just seeing if it works.

    I was a Dropbox user, but their price hike a few years back was when I parted ways.

    Just checked there's only 800mb in the dropbox atm (Yeah still got it
    installed atm), verses the 4gb in nextcloud. %-)

    Most of my files there are text files with configuration settings and
    config programs, with a sprinkling of jpeg's and the odd iso file.

    When roaming around town, is why I went that route to make things easy to referance. Dropbox reducing the storage limits and jacking the price up
    was enough to go my own route.

    I've been meaning to make a post; what free [or VERY cheap] cloud service(s) do ya'll use? Dropbox doesn't seem to be a great option anymore...

    I pay for iCloud w/ 2TB of storage, and it has good integration with the OSes I use...

    I have hosted a NextCloud on my own servers before and it seems like a really cool option - I have to test a bit more and see if it has good OS integration.

    I see OneDrive is what Windows is pushing, but I haven't ever used it...

    What do the PPL like??

    So I use a mix of NextCloud and Syncthing.

    Syncthing hosts my dev code that I work on, specially when I'm switching between my iMac or my laptop. Its pretty fast are sharing data between my (3) machines that I sometimes switch between, and I've not had any troubles with sync.

    I use Nextcloud for everything else. I did use Nextcloud for my dev code as well, but found it got hung up with some dot files and there was another file it used to trip over. It was also slower in syncing I found - but that may have been older versions.

    But for sharing documents, files with outside folks - giving them a password protected expirying link is useful - except some people dont know how to use it :(

    Hey paulie420, have a look at sync.com as the data is encrypted end to end and at rest (not all cloud providers have encrypted at rest). I got a really good deal with sync when they kicked off many years ago and migrated from Dropbox. I also use Onedrive but only because it's included in my 365 subscription and iCloud but prefer to use Sync.com on both Windows and Mac, they may have a Lunix client by now.

    sync.com seems to be more robust that the others mentioned above... always had some sync issues with files that had odd characters in the file name when using Onedrive.

    Nextcloud for me - I use it for synchronised file storage (111GB currently), it's a CalDAV/CardDAV server for calendaring and contacts, and I sync my browser bookmarks to it using Floccus.

    I'm fortunate to have access to some datacentre space, so my Nextcloud server lives there, and all of my clients live here at home. If either site "went away" I've still got a copy of my data (and I have normal backups of course).

    I used Boxcryptor over Dropbox back when I was a dropbox user, and that had the option of encrypting the filenames as well. Not suggesting that Dropbox were analysing customer metadata, but if they were, Boxcryptor in theory should have put a stop to that.

    But the Dropbox price increase was enough for me to bring my data back home. Similarly, I was lazy enough to use the Google Apps suite for my personal email for a while - until they hiked the price, encouraging me to bring that back home too.

    I've used OneDrive. An organisation I work for set it up, and I access the shared drive from time to time to file stuff. I use a basic CLI Linux tool to mount the drive, which the name escapes me. Seems to work OK, but is Windows centric, and confusing to set up on Windows with syncing and all that.

    My ISP provides web space, accessible via FTP, which makes it an easy way for me to share files with others, should the need arise. Just upload it there, send them a link.

    I did the same thing while working on expanding my "off the cloud" solution to get away from Google completely when they were going to terminate their legacy free tier.

    I setup a local Exchange server and NextCloud in two different VMs. I still have them configured and do like the features in NextCloud. Since Google decided to not force the legacy free tier to a subscription (if the setup is used for family), I paused my work on it for the time being.

    Wow - super awesome replies from everyone. :P Thanks... I *did* like the NextCloud install and I think I should give that another run since its a whole-household solution... Guess I could take it to the next level and point it outward if I needed to. Deon is the 2nd person to suggest Syncthing, for various usecases... I might have to dig into it, too. I've never installed it so I think I'll spin up an install and check it out. Neat that Cozmo uses OneDrive - I guess the only reason I never tried IT is b/c Windows pushes it so much... close-minded; I also think Google Drive [and Google Photos] is a smart choice as its a 'NextCloud on steroids' and easily integrates with any device you need, from anywhere you are.

    This was a great response, thanks all. I'll be trying out some of the options ya'll suggested. :P w00t w00t!

    I'll agree with you there. In a previous job I convinced the Grand Poobah to spring for Proofpoint which we stuck in front of O365, it filtered out almost everything and if a phish happened to make it through your user can push a button in Outlook to "Report Phish" which will then pull it out of everyone's mailbox.

    My current boss sees the value in it but can't justify the added expense (~$3 /user /month) at this time...

    Yes the install script want's a naked centos install, and then that is
    the only function it does... I have it installed on two VM's....

    On the "to-do/wanted" list is the ability of the web ui, to manage two installs. At the moment it only handles one.

    So I went ahead and set it up, and I'll leave it hooked up to one of my domains that gets a lot of spam and see how it fairs.

    The install had a few errors along the way, and the first time web configure failed - but I started it again and it seemed to work the second time.

    Seems I cannot whitelist my IPv6 segment (to outbound relay) - opendkim doesnt like the IPv6 CIDR (or specific address it seems) and fails to start - and brings down incoming mail.

    Ill investigate that further and submit a report.

    It'll take a little bit to start learning. Just remember like anything it
    will be spot on on some spam, but miss another.

    Clicking on the blue 'i' on the left of the message list will let you see
    all the headers etc, and down the bottom will be options to mark as
    spam/report or release the message. Down there is also "path to message"
    to allow the reading of the message.

    The install had a few errors along the way, and the first time web
    configure failed - but I started it again and it seemed to work the
    second time.

    I haven't done a fresh install since v4 was released.

    opendkim doesnt like the IPv6 CIDR (or specific address it seems) and

    Have you loged in as the standard user that was setup when you did the
    install? That will bring up a menu system to allow many of the settings
    to be changed.

    That's under '16) DKIM and DMARC'.. I can't remember what I changed or
    edited for that. #-)

    It'll take a little bit to start learning. Just remember like anything it will be spot on on some spam, but miss another.

    Yeah, its an ancient looking UI - but leaving it on overnight (which is when one of my domains gets a heap of spam from *biz domains - it looks like it caught them all.

    One got through "Get a marketing quote" (or something like that) - which I marked as spam, I'll see how that goes, as I get a few of those.

    Be great to setup a honeypot email or two - do you know how to do that? IE: Advertise an email address that spammers pick and use - which automatically results in spam training? (Since no real person ever would use that email.)

    Have you loged in as the standard user that was setup when you did the install? That will bring up a menu system to allow many of the settings
    to be changed.

    That's under '16) DKIM and DMARC'.. I can't remember what I changed or edited for that. #-)

    Yeah, I did that.

    If I put in a IPv6 CIDR, opendkim cannot restart.

    Internally, all my systems get an address from my fd00:368::/48 that I use. So any outgoing mail would come from that CIDR - but it rejects it with no relaying. I have to use the IPv4 address :(

    Why use a general sync solution for software, when you can set up a software repository?

    I have a personal CVS server for code. Not that I code much, but I find it more convenient than just syncing across a regular sync service.

    I do have one, I use gitlab.

    My syncthing sync more than code - my docker contaier configuration and the container's data.

    I jump between my Mac Mini and Macbook Pro, and all I need to do is stop my containers on the mini, wait a few mins and then start them on my Macbook.

    Actually most of the time is when I travel for work, so that I can keep doing stuff while sitting in a hotel room.

    What is this t.. tra... trave... travel thing you speak of?

    Nearly two and a half years since I've seen the inside of an aircraft, or a hotel in another state :-(

    Only a few years back I pretty much lived in hotels. How things changed (thanks COVID!)

    Yes, it was strange for me, the first trip about 2 months ago.

    I used to travel a fair bit (in and out of Oz), but then it stopped :(

    I remember receiving PGP-armored mail on my home server and retrieving with IMAP behind a firewall. I moved to a web-based mail service when I started consulting and relying on mail, I think I never should have made the change.

    Although, search for me was the killer app with email. I went through a
    nasty divorce and Gmail's search was great at pulling up emails that my ex
    had "conveniently" forgotten that she'd sent. :)

    Hi deon,

    Be great to setup a honeypot email or two - do you know how to do
    that? IE: Advertise an email address that spammers pick and use -
    which automatically results in spam training? (Since no real person
    ever would use that email.)

    I've not done it. But there might be a post on the support fourm on how
    to do it. (Just can't remember).

    There's a few things that can be tweeked under the hood.

    ie: /etc/mail/spamassassin/country.cf
    ---cut---
    ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry

    header COUNTRY_RELAY_AE X-Relay-Countries =~ /AE/
    describe COUNTRY_RELAY_AE Relayed through United Arab Emirates
    score COUNTRY_RELAY_AE 7.5
    add_header all Relay-Country _COUNTRY_RELAY_AE_

    header COUNTRY_RELAY_AF X-Relay-Countries =~ /AF/
    describe COUNTRY_RELAY_AF Relayed through Afghanistan
    score COUNTRY_RELAY_AF 7.5
    add_header all Relay-Country _COUNTRY_RELAY_AF_
    ---cut---

    spam.lists.conf seams to get overwritten every now and again, so I've got
    a cronjob copying my (Bigger) list back...

    /etc/MailScanner/spam.lists.conf
    ---cut---
    BARRACUDA b.barracudacentral.org
    SPAMCOP bl.spamcop.net
    ABUSEAT cbl.abuseat.org
    SPAMHAUS zen.spamhaus.org
    ---cut---

    use. So any outgoing mail would come from that CIDR - but it rejects
    it with no relaying. I have to use the IPv4 address :(

    Perhaps it didn't like the format?

    I've also got a ipset country block running for some places that seam to
    be spam and nothing but spam... SEO spam is one of the worst...

    OVH is a block on sight, along with digital ocean and a few others... #0(

    Yeah, I even tried a full IPv6 address, ie: fd00:368:: in its full format, and it didnt like it.

    I've logged a problem - but it looks like opendkim hasnt been updated in 4 years :( so not holding my breath.

    This project has given me inspiration to build a docker/kube version of it though. I dont like having another VM, and it really looks like just postfix, spamassin, opendkim and mailscanner - there might be a couple of other utilities in there.

    Together with it, and maybe something like mailu - I might bring all my email back in house...
