I was going to post a comment in YouTube but mine just got deleted for contributing as a Linux user. :frowning:

Anyway, I can post my comment here:

That’s good to know for securing TrueNAS in a home environment, although I already have a file server with NFS for movies and music. If I need to access files in my file server, I can do that through SSH. Plus, I can create compressed backups of all of my files, although my Steam library and Blender files are in separate accounts in Linux. I created Linux accounts using OpenLDAP. The script I wrote for backing up all the files are as follows:


tar cf - -I pbzip2 ~/ | ssh gpeddie@storageserver "cat > ~/backups/gpeddie-$(date +%Y%m%d).tar.bz2"

The backups folder is symbolically linked to /data/nas/backups/grayson-epcotcenter/gpeddie where /data/nas is in a separate partition from /home/ldapusers/gpeddie.
