Ash

Ash is my main home server . It hosts a few virtual machines (including this website), it also a good point to document the configuration somewhere; as the source of this website is on git hub this also makes a nice config back-up.

Named after Ash Ketchum




mythtv.lan

This a visualised instance of mythUbuntu. This is my forth upgrade to my home mythtv server. The screenshots for mythweb give an idea of greatness of mythtv

Available at http://myth.barwap.com/mythweb but you need a user name and password unlike your standard magazine the newsagents for TV.

This is my first mythtv running in a virtual machine - the trick is to pass the USB, only later versions of Ubuntu (14.04.04 or +), keep the same bus and device after warm boots of the USB controller.

    <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb' managed='yes'>
      <source>
        <address bus='2' device='2'/>
      </source>
      <alias name='hostdev0'/>
    </hostdev>

scrambled.lan

This the workhorse of the server in terms fo the outside world. It runs Pound, the Pound program is a reverse proxy, load balancer and HTTPS front-end for Web servers.

The detailed config is stored https://github.com/bmsleight/teletubbies-pound. To help get let's encrypt I used a few google searches and this post Let's Encrypt Certificates and Pound Load Balancer

The config file for pound, redirects anything to the https except for /.well-known/acme-challenge/ - ironically used for let's encrypt.
