Cockpit and Traefik

HTTP 500, HTTP 404…etc Cockpit’s web server automatically redirects to port 443 with a self-defined SSL certificate.

Note: To proxy to my host that’s running traefik and docker, I need […]

Docker, Traefik, Jellyfin, DLNA

It seems most media servers (Jellyfin, Emby, Plex, UMS…etc) recommend using docker host networking (-net=host) when running within a container so that it can see UDP traffic on port 1900 for DLNA discovery. This is undesirable for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that a reverse proxy (Traefik, perhaps?) running in […]

I started getting the following error when launching QB: “You do not have sufficient permissions to delete files in the specified Folder. To use QuickBooks in multi-user environment, you must have read/write access and create/delete rights […]

This post explains how to configure the line of Netgear Web Managed Smart Switches WITHOUT installing their configuration utility (using only your web browser). Not sure why Netgear pushes users towards installing their configuration utility in order to perform simple setup tasks, but it is not necessary (and, IMO a complete waste). By default, the […]

This message appears when you attempt to re-import pictures from a device that you’ve already imported them from (but maybe you didn’t delete them the first time?).  The reason is that Windows 10 keeps a record of all the images you’ve imported from your devices using the Photo Import Wizard/tool, presumeably to prevent you from importing a bunch […]
