I’ve been planning to start with Quickbox for over a year but it keeps getting pushed back.
I need to move to a seedbox and this package sounds great. I currently have VMware running on a server. I have a couple of Linux machines (I only need one, but…) running, one for torrents and one for newsgroups. I run sickbeard and couchpotato but make heavier use of a browser. I have a killswitch running… so, on a VPN (PIA).
From the past I have info on suitable firewall rules.
For Torrents I use a browser in the torrent VM, on a VPN. I usually use RARBG or TPB and magnet links. Transmission is running and you know the rest.
For Newsgroups it’s SABNZBD. It has a watcher directory. I use a browser and then drop the NZB files into the watcher directory.
Sickbeard handles TV episodes and I love it. It’s the only automated system I really use. I have CouchPotato running but don’t use it much.
Quickbox is up and running on a new VM. I believe fully operational. I’m not sure how to proceed. I’ll put my questions out here but we can work through them one at a time. Also, if someone would prefer we take this “offline” I’m fine with that. I’m happy to pay the hourly wage, if that is what’s recommended.
- OpenVPN - Should I install OpenVPN using “quickVPN” (logged in as root… sudo su) or should I follow the Linux procedures from PIA?
- How can I get a browser running in Quickbox? It sounds like it should be easy so I think I’m missing something obvious.
Any suggestions on how I can provide the functionality I have today (with my 2 VMs) is appreciated. I know Sickbeard is deprecated, so I know some answers may be “you should do this instead”. Even seedbox advice is appreciated, but I know there is a forum subsection for that.
Have a great day and thanks for any help.
