Re: RPi3 + DigiAMP+ & 2.1 sound?

In your situation i'd ditch the bookshelf speakers and get a bluetooth sound bar. You can get a bluetooth dongle for your pi and set Kodi to bluetooth audio output to connect to the sound bar. The RPi 3B has Bluetooth built in :? My apologies, I glossed over the fact that he is using a Pi3.

I can't answer that question for certain, you will need to set it up and run it for a while an see for yourself. Not knocking the raspberry pi at all here, but i've moved on from the raspberry pi to the rock64, it has dedicated gigabit lan, faster memory, and a usb3 port. I ran nextcloud from a 3 B ...

Re: problem trying to connect client to pivpn

It's been a while since i've fooled around with the setup you're running, but the problem is you are double NAT'd. You can see the whole network from R2, but when attached to R1 you cannot see anything on R2 unless you port forward. I run DD WRT on my routers, I think you need to set whatever port y...

Re: No internet or LAN access through OpenVPN (piVPN)

Ok, that was simple. Thanks default_user8. I had already added the push "route 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0" as per a previous topic. All it took was the "local # your local subnet" line... Strange that piVPN doesn't add that in during the installation. It's meant to just work on install. Don't know w...

Re: No internet or LAN access through OpenVPN (piVPN)

Your not allowing access to your local lan, here is a link to a server.conf file example that should help you. You're missing "# your local subnet

Re: VPN client comparisons/recommendations

I Second piVPN, been running it for over a year without a hitch. Originally ran it on a pi zero w, but have switched it over to a model 2 B running pihole, pivpn, and RPI-Monitor. Easy setup, easy to manage, and works great.

Re: Letting OpenVPN subnet see my LAN

Did you start with pivpn or did you install openvpn server from apt? The default pivpn setup should work, but if not here is a link to a default server.conf file that should help.

If you reserved 2 addresses in your router leave it set to auto, your router knows to look for the mac address associated with that ip address.

Re: Kodi 18 - Free VPN

The manager is installed in Kodi but the actual openVPN executable which it controls and sets up isn't, that's installed in the OS underneath. You can quite happily use it directly without the manager add-on via a shell or terminal if you want to, the manager just makes it easier within the GUI. Bu...

Re: Kodi 18 - Free VPN

Kodi doesn't need a VPN to work, at least for the kind of usage that it's designed for. And anyone stupid enough to think a "free" VPN provides any kind of safety or security should stop and think quite how their connect is funded. If you're not paying for it by cash then you're paying for it some ...

Are you locked in to using dropbox? Why not run your own dropbox type server with nextcloudpi, that way all your data is on your own server not someone else's.

So I changed the default port. It had no effect. I noticed the VPN works (err worked) perfectly fine on wifi, but if I switch over to 4G data only, data crawls again.

Re: PiVPN - Connects, But Very Slow Internet

It's probably your isp, the 3b+ is more than capable of handling both pihole and pivpn. I run pihole, pivpn, and rpi-monitor on my 3B, and find my pivpn connection more than adequate for my needs.

, you will need to be able to change your DNS settings in your router for it to work. While it is more convenient to change the DNS setting in the router, it is not a requirement. Changing the DNS setting in the computer(s) runing the browsers is equally effective when using PiHole to block ads. dr...
