      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. I would like to know why the VPN is causing disconnection to my windows vps? I have used the vpn company's software and previously openvpn same results. I cant give you logs because I have to reboot vps when this happens because the vps stalls (freezes) when this issue happens - I can't do anything with the vps until reboot of vps. Note: the VPS works fine if I don't connect VPN Thank you. specs of my windows 2008 server vps Full Administrator Access 1 CPU Core (Intel Xeon) 1 GB Dedicated Memory 40 GB Disk Space 1 TB Monthly Bandwidth 1 GBit/s Internet Port 1 IP (additional 10 IPs) Native IPv6 Configurable RDNS Free DNS Cluster OpenVPN & PPP Ready Anytime Upgrades Variety Of Payments (see) DDoS Protection (480 Gbps)

  4. Microsoft Windows does not natively support IPIP (or GRE) Tunnels. This makes Windows Servers more difficult to DDoS protect as Reverse Proxy / Transparent Proxy becomes the only method easily available. We at X4B are pleased to announce that this is no longer a limitation. A IPIP (IP-in-IP) userland client is now available bringing support for IPIP as a point-to-point tunnelling protocol. Finally, stateless full packet encapsulation is available on the Platform :) Download: https://www.x4b.net/files/wintunnelcli-1.exe Licence: All rights reserved. Free for for non-commercial use.

  5. Hi, a friend of mine is searching for a Windows VPS in EU or on the west coast. Not much needed for a testing machine. He might be able to bring his own license (MSDN). I did not ever searched / followed for windows offers so I kindly ask for recomendations.

  8. Howdy folks, I've recently been having problems with my Ubuntu VPS on my Windows server. I have access to both the Host node and the guest node (since this is a multi-use server and I wanted to use both Windows and Linux services), and I guess I thought I set it up properly but it seems there's a networking problem on the server. There's periods when the Ubuntu VM has major packet loss while the actual host server is mostly fine. Sometimes when I'm rsyncing large files (12 GB worth of files), the network gets dropped on the entire Ubuntu VM and I get the error "ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available". This was reproducible whenever I'd rsync out larger files. Basic research shows this is usually due to an incompatibility of the on-board NIC on the Server (of course this is assuming Ubuntu was installed on the base hardware, not within a VM). I'm assuming this is a problem with my bridge setup. Anyways, this is a Hyper-V Generation 1 VM. The bridge is basically all default variables requested when setting it up through the Wizard available on the Windows Server 2012 R2 (Datacenter Edition). Upon further Google Searching, I've found that we have to increase the memory allocation for the packets, and was suggested I add the following lines into sysctl: net.core.rmem_max=16777216 net.core.wmem_max=16777216 net.ipv4.tcp_rmem=4096 87380 16777216 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem=4096 65536 16777216 In addition, the following command was executed: echo 83886080 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max Anyways, even with these changes I'm still having some problems. Anyone know of a good way to start troubleshooting this issue? Thanks!
  9. I mainly use Android devices so had setup my own local Brisbane & Sydney and US based CentOS OpenVPN VPN VPS servers to connect to. However, I'm wanting to extend VPN coverage to Windows 8.1 phone devices too and they prefer L2TP. So I've setup a CentOS 7 server (running Centmin Mod of course) with L2TP Ipsec and it works okay with Android 4.2 and 5.x devices via native VPN features. But there's no auto reconnect features with native Android VPN as opposed to the OpenVPN client I was using. So my question to folks here using L2TP IPSec for Android and Windows 8.1 phone, what VPN clients are you using which support auto reconnect and saving multiple VPN server profiles ? cheers George

  11. I keep bumping into need for Windows. Business software annoyance. WINE while it is fine for some stuff, isn't sufficient for everything. Die hard Linux folks around here have any current similar scenario in their world or those around them? Someone have a solution / preferred current solutions for running Windows desktop in Linux virtualized world? Specifically on the desktop. Rather run this locally inhouse. Was contemplating a KVM install via Proxmox and with Windows real install within that... Just need GUI to work reasonably well in Windows and single monitor, nothing fancy, no sound. Alternative at this point is picking up a cheap beater laptop with Windows pre-installed/included.

  13. Hey guys! Let's start at the beginning. I am an 23 years old System Administrator entrant, I am done with my schools recently. So I want to start my online business by selling VPS but I have so many questions about it. I have a few unused computers and I am wondering if I can make some bucks with them. The main stats are: 2 core, 2 gb ram, 200 gb hdd 8 core, 4 gb ram, 1000 gb hdd link: 150/15 mbps Is there a way to make the servers fully automated with free solutions? I dont have hundreds of dollars for licenses. I've been googling around and found that it is WHMCS that I need but could not find a minimalist and free wordpress(or not wordpress) template for my site. I am also intrested Linux and Windows solutions. I know there isn't a tutorial like "how to be a vps provider" but I hope you guys can give me some advice. Thanks Regards, Zsolt!
  14. Hi, I am looking for a server that has 4 cores 4GB ram 50+GB HDD 100+Mbps with good throughput that is located in north america east coast preferably. I can bring my own windows server license the hdd does not have to be an SSD but should have decent I/O same as IP transit I probably wont be doing more than 50GB/month but will want a cap of 500GB. should be able to do >60Mbps. now here's the kicker I need it to be <$10/m USD. I've seen some one black friday but didn't sign up. recap: 4 cores. 4GB ram dedicated. 50+GB HDD doesn't have to be ssd but good I/O 100Mbps or 1Gbps no slower than >60Mbps actual throughput 500GB transfer cap. <$10/month will be used as personal dev server won't be abused.
  15. Fresh off the paranoid presses, TrueCrypt has security issues and looks now to be dead and unsupported. source: http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/ The issue revolves around Microsoft dumping support for old version and BitLocker becoming Microsoft's crypto stuff. Oddly, even the Linux download area bears scarey language: (URL: http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/OtherPlatforms.html) Downloads: WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure
  16. Sysdig

    I found this pretty nifty Linux/Windows/OSX Application the other night and thought I'd share it here with all of you. No I didn't make this, I just found it by browsing /r/sysadmins. sysdig "A New System Troubleshooting Tool Built for the Way You Work" http://www.sysdig.org/ Supports RHEL Based Distros, RHEL from 6, CentOS from 6, Amazon Linux, Fedora from 13, Oracle Linux from 6. Supports Debian based distros, Debian from 6, Ubuntu from 10.04 and Linux Mint from 9. Latest versions of Debian and Ubuntu include sysdig, though they recommend installing it yourself to get the latest and greatest. http://www.sysdig.org/install/
  17. Hi, I am looking for a G-Mod server of mine to run on a VPS. Currently I am using VPS Dime and which they're very unreliable. I have a 6gb RAM, 10gb/sec Internet, and 4v Cores. I don't find their vps's to be incredibly fast and I am looking for a VPS that will run my garry's mod server very well. I will spend no more than 7$/month. I am looking for something that will run 32 players well. Also, I need this to be a good quality VPS that is reliable. My current one runs 150 Ping which is bad. I need something that will provide better ping and less lag and more reliability for my server. Please respond. Thanks, Ron

  19. I am currently with PremiumReseller, their service is very stable but lately their plans are not I inquired why I cannot change the quota of one email account and I was informed that I need to pay $2/mo/mailbox to enable it to go to 500MB from the default 250MB (kb article http://support.premiumreseller.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/105/0/smartermail-quota-limit) For $2/mo, one can get a 25GB Rackspace Email Account. My customers are now complaining because I cannot upgrade their accounts from MB default limit Please advise a stable provider who provides WindowsReseller with no non-sense as mentioned above Thanks
  20. Windows License?

    I have a VirtualBox VM where I want to install a licensed Windows (7/8.1/2008 R2/Whatever). Are there monthly leased licenses available for Windows? I am an end user, not a corporate company so I cannot get into the Gold partner plan etc. Any ideas?
  21. I have the following question. How would i best create an automatic backup system to backup a IIS enviroment + MSSQL Express to another server. The other server as you might have guessed from the title is runnning linux and is in another location. I ask this because i am new to windows server but would like to have backups. Anyone have a good solution for this that is preferably free to implement? If you want more details feel free to ask.
  22. Basic Windows 2008 R2 Needs

    Everyone likes to have a windows VPS and most will go to Windows 2008 R2 due to its stability and performance with game servers. Most tickets created are because people need these packs. Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555 Microsoft .NET 4.5: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 Java((This one actually will set the path for you)): ((32 Bit)): http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=94212 ((64 Bit)): http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=94214 This should fix most issues people have just link it to them and tell them to put it on the server.
  23. Hey all! So we are all familiar with Linux and Linux System Administrator work. That's all fancy and dandy, but in a more corporate environment most user hardwares (and often more critical systems) are Windows based. How's Windows System Admining? What experiences do you have to share for that? Anyone have some good links or resources for it? What do you use for monitoring Windows Servers? Good powershell scripts? How can you run Windows on a potato? But a semi more serious topic, what are your experiences with Windows Domains? /r/talesfromtechsupport and /u/airz23 may or may not have impacted this post.
