Are you interested in deploying a reverse proxy in your network?

The topic of reverse proxies can be difficult or confusing to understand when you are new to the concept. Understanding when you might want to use a reverse proxy may be more difficult than understanding how it functions as you build out a more advanced home network. I had considered using a reverse proxy in my network for a while but did not take the time to explore the idea until now.

Virtualize OPNsense as your primary router or for evaluation purposes

Have you wanted to take a look at OPNsense without installing it to a dedicated machine and/or deploying it as your primary home router/firewall? The easiest way to evaluate OPNsense without installing it on separate hardware is to virtualize it. I wrote about running OPNsense in VirtualBox. Now that I run Proxmox on my server instead of Ubuntu (I still use Ubuntu for many of my LXCs/VMs on Proxmox), I wanted to run OPNsense on Proxmox so I may use when writing content for this site.

Need an offsite backup solution for your Proxmox server at a minimal cost?

After I migrated my home server to use Proxmox, I began searching for a new offsite, cloud backup solution. I was using CrashPlan, and my discounted subscription expired. I wanted to know if I could keep the offsite backup costs a little lower than $10 per month (even though that is not a huge expense to ensure your most important files are protected) and also run a lighter weight service.

Looking for an easy to configure offsite backup solution for your Proxmox server?

For a number of years, I have used Crashplan as my offsite backup. I found the price and features attractive. It also worked on Linux which further won me over since I was running a Linux server as my file server. Their unlimited plan for a single machine was very affordable especially when purchasing multiple years. $3-4 per month for unlimited backup was well worth the price to have peace of mind in case something bad happens at home (I actually did need to use it one time when I had a failing hard drive corrupt several of my files).
