  1. Looking at getting a VPN, so wondered which one people use/prefer. I've been looking at IPVANISH and PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS (PIA). I'm in the UK, so perhaps UK based VPNs are better? Also, I use DDNS (configured on my router) to access my home services, so are VPNs and DDNS compatible ?? All comments are appreciated. Thanks.
  2. I have couple of users who are outside my network but still can access my server via vpn. I set a bitrate in the playback settings of 1mbit. "An optional per-stream bitrate limit for all out of network devices. This is useful to prevent devices from requesting a higher bitrate than your internet connection can handle. This may result in increased CPU load on your server in order to transcode videos on the fly to a lower bitrate." But it doesn't look like it's working. I want to limit anything outside of my network to 1mbit and force transcoding. Here is my setup: There is NO access from WAN. Server side: <-- SITE TO SITE VPN --> Remote site It seems when the users access server from emby just direct plays content there is no limit. the files that are being played are huge (1080p/ 4k etc... ) so that saturates my upstream immediately. Plex solves this by a setting that you can set "Networks that belong to local net" and anything that's outside that range is considered remote and limits are enforced. Is there a way to implement this?
  3. i have my vpn running through the router on DD-WRT,im not real good with this stuff and wondered if somebody could help me configure open vpn with this router. this is what i am using, Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r31884 (07/17/17) thanks for any help provided
  4. I have an idea that if Emby can stream media to my device over the internet (with proper dynamicdns and isp provided speed connection) then could Emby stream media through a vpn connection? Let me explain a little. I have a vpn connection between my shop and my home. The computer in the shop is already backing up to a server in my home. So, if the shop burns down (or some weather disaster) I have data backed up to my home server. So, if I am already streaming 'that data', could Emby server (setup in the shop) stream data to my Emby client in my home? Seems to me that this should work? Any thoughts?
  5. Windows 7 Pro Server Version 3.0.5597.1 Router D-Link dir-655 VPN->PrivateInternetAccess VPN is running on same machine as EmbyServer. I ensure that EmbyServer is started after any VPN start/re-starts. ************************ QUESTION: Is it necessary to prioritize startups like this? ********************************** Below is a screenshot of Advanced settings: Below is a screenshot of my VPN settings: The URL I use to connect to EmbyServer is my ISP_provided_IP:8096. The IP is static. Remote access (from laptop) works fine with VPN off. I am ABLE to connect to EmbyServer with the ISP_provided_IP:8096 from the server machine. I am UNABLE to connect to EmbyServer with the ISP_provided_IP:8096 from a client machine (laptop). I saw a direction in the forum to "...go to dashboard -> advanced -> hosting and override your external address". I assumed this meant to enter my ISP_provided_IP in the "dashboard -> advanced -> hosting -> External WAN Address:".. Still no joy. There was another direction on the forum to "...manually edit the common config file and put in the machine name/ip address for the server." I poked around around looking for a "common config file" to no avail. What tag would I edit if I found it? After hours of trying different settings (e.g., port mapping on/off) and searching this forum and the web for a solution, I have become very frustrated and need your help. Thanks Here is my server log: server-63566876397.txt Thanks
