So here’s my current setup… I have a Windows VM that is basically set up for downloading torrents and the like, I have an Unraid box with shares and it’s also hosting a Plex Server for media sharing (the Win VM downloads to this, and I have a pfsense box which does:
Suricata, squid with virus scan, ntop, some light traffic shaping, as well as run all of the download VM traffic through Private Internet Access VPN which I set up through openvpn… I have it configured to also block windows telemetry.
This is about it for what I have my server(s) doing - but I have more bandwidth and I’m looking for other cool appliances to run… I have been looking at other firewall applications that seem cool, but I wanted to throw it out to the forum to see if anyone has some idea on what else I could be doing. It’s doesn’t all have to be “necessary”, ie, having enterprise grade networks security at home etc, but I like playing with it, learning, and ultimately it’s pretty badass.
So what do y’all think - where should I go from here?
Oh, and just a tip, I’m using a site called showrss.info to create a custom RSS feed of TV show torrents that automatically download which has been AWESOME… highly recommended. I do movies manually, but can add them remotely with utorrent remote and they just drop right into Plex - great for grabbing something to watch on the road.
