fail2ban not working inside VPN.

Hi So I am running fail2ban on a VPN client on my LAN. The VPN client can only be accessed from the VPN server. The VPN server is in the cloud , not on my LAN. VPN server is running nginx ; nginx is redirecting URIs to the VPN. When testing using my phone connected to the www using cell data, the fa...

[SOLVED]. VPN ipv6 causing prbs - nooB qstn

Hi. Agreed, I have continued on that post.
The problem was that - at some point - I must have disabled ipv6 on the Pi. I enabled it and all was well; so I then re-disabled ipv6 and removed the ipv6 addresses in /etc/wireguard/wg0.conf

Not nonsense. YES it is! Complete and utter! Why are you quoting EPBD which is not regulation but advisory. And a stat DOES NOT have to be included in a heating system where TRVs control the heating space. A NC-sTRV (normally closed smart TRV) will NOT allow water to flow through the rad and thus b...

You shouldn't have a TRV on all of your radiators. There should be a radiator in your home that is either a TRV set to max or doesn't have a TRV at all. This radiator is the one in the same room as the thermostat that controls the boiler. Nonsense mate; many a household implements this; I've seen i...

I was running as root, i.e. "sudo su" .... yes I know, don't go there (!)
