VPN to render farm

Q: VPN to render farm

Hi all,

I have a client that I'm doing some graphics stuff for and he has a render farm at his house. We are trying to set up a way that I can log into his render farm via Virtual Private Network or something similar and set up Maya renders and have the frames sent back to my computer at my office.

Does anyone have any experience setting up a VPN who could help me out with some info or point me toward some good resources.


Preferred Solution: VPN to render farm

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a laptop that will soon be put in retirement, as I'm getting a faster one that I can take to school with me but I was hoping to use this old laptop to help me render some of my projects out for class. However I have no idea how to start, I don't know if I can just connect my two laptops together or if I have to do anything special. So, how would I do this?

I think this is different than the "should i air or watercool" thread, so I'll try to be as concise as possible, as I've found little to no info on this while googling.

For school, I'm about to submit a project proposal to the faculty for a render farm: The system itself will be 8-15 lower-end PC's linked together to a main computer to perform rendering operations for the art students. Render farms can get hot... the ambient heat caused by close to a dozen PC's can sometimes raise the operating temperatures to dangerous levels, especially on a system like this that will probably be utilized often by the hundreds of modelers at this school.

So, instead of individually-cooled systems which would possibly become a hassle in and of itself, I came up with the idea of placing all the systems into a fridge to keep the temps down. The thing I'm worried about most is the moisture in the air in normal residential refrigerators that could cause some very bad and very obvious problems. Unfortunately, most commercial applications either lack the storage space, are way too big, and they all cost more than a used car.

If anyone might have any ideas or suggestions for this project idea of mine, I'd be extremely grateful. Thank you.

A:Render farm dry cooling project

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Look into the server farms that are still out there/here.
Some have built a walkin cooler of sorts, basically using one or two units torn out of refrigerators.

Even a window mount ac would work for this in a wood framed and plexi glass or spare closet.
You'd still want to load each machine with a good fan systems, or strip them all the way down to bare.
No sheet metal sides, kinda like mini rack mount expossing
all componants but have a central network drive.
Exhausting the heat from the building may prove difficult.

So i am going to be getting 9 (yes 9) 1.88ghz single core 2gb ram, 80gb hdd servers in rack mount style. Im getting these for free or dirt cheap.
So i have a few ideas of what i want to use them for, But not really how, But here are my ideas so far:

1. Web Server, but have the load balanced across the machines.

2. Server raid array, so like using multiple servers with multiple HDDs each and having them doing backups and backing each other up

3. I am going to be getting into some security research stuff and there are some scripts i want to write to calculate stuff for me, Like rainbow tables and whatnot. So i thought well with all these machines i could speed stuff up, plus get it off my main computer.

Thats all the ideas i have come up with so far, Their all things i have been wanting to do, but never got around to doing. Only problem is that i have no bloody idea how to do any of it.

I do consider myself a very techy person (more end user stuff though less corporate networking etc...) so i am willing to take up a challenge and learn something new! I am 100% open to any ideas for what to use these machines for.

A:Multiple computer render, node, etc farm ideas?

It really depend on what you want to do. If you want the servers to process a lot of information faster I would consider settings up load balancing on them. How to do it will depend on what OS you decide to use. I would probably looking into Linux cluster. A lot of information is available on Google with a quick search.

A web server will only need load balancing if you have a lot of traffic coming in.

hi... So i have been playing around in sony vegas with some settings and found out that if you render with the cpu it takes 4 Minutes to get to 11% on a 15Min video (full video takes 34 mins )
And the Gpu render takes 4:11 minutes to get to 11%

Why is this? The gpu render should be waaay faster.. I've seen people with the GTX 660 get times like 10 Min video takes 5Min to render but for me it takes 20Min to render a 10Min video???
i do not know if this is a software or hardware issue becouse when maxing my cpu to 100% my psu goes bananas so my cpu needs to force shut down 2 cores and my cpu can only work at 80% instead of 100%
Is this something that can effect this?

ok, i've been modeling in 3d for a while now and mostly do still frames but i have a few scenes that i want to render and they're quite complicated and long so, naturally, the rendering takes way too long for my liking.

i had heard about render farms but i looked up the prices and their out of my budget range. so i thought about building my own at home. i've looked all over the internet and the only site i've found over and over again on how to setup a render farm is http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,1847413,00.asp <-- here.

The only problem im having with this is, how exactly you connect the nodes together to use them to render the frames faster, i already have a queing software, just don't know what i need to connect 'em all. Does any one know any websites that tell you step by step how to setup the hardware for such a farm? or does anyone know how to do this themselves.

I live on a farm in a country area where all we get is dial up and moteralla wireless internet....which is very expensive. My whole family, unfortunatly for me, lives on the farm. My father will only get the highspeed moterolla
(w, w, w)....neighbourhoodwireless(c, o, m) if i can figure out a way to network to houses over 300 feet away. I am not sure if this internet can do this but it does say we can extend MD range to 2-10miles(look in the statistics page with the prices, near the bottm)?I'm confused at that. But if thats not a 2-10mile network system than would it be possible to physically connect the 2 houses over 600 feet away creating a network we can share using ethernet or some other kind of cables with many adapters? How would this effect the speed and quality? Any kind of response would be deeply appreciated.

I am looking for a location to place a backup server. This server will only be written to unless the primary server goes down hard and clients are directed to start using the backup server. Bandwidth will be not more than moderate unless this server goes live as the primary - and in that case it will only be the primary until the real primary is brought back online.

My preferred location is close to a backbone router because I don't want latency issues to be significant - especially because my clients will all be doing dual-writes and this second write is pure overhead. Someplace in the central United States would be best.

This is a startup for an ASP service. My primary server will be located in Dayton OH. The backup needs to be far enough from it physically and logically to never find itself taken out in the same catastrophe.

Because this is a startup, I am very cost sensitive.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

We are running ATA for a month in now in our production domain. Now it starts reporting various "Suspicion of identity theft based on abnormal behavior" activities on the ATA Attack Timeline and most of these activities involve servers in our RDS
farm (the specified user didn't log on to that RDS server before). This means these actions are false positives in our case.
For the time being I configured the "short term lease" subnet option for these servers, is this the way to go or is  there a better way to handle this?

Here is a very interesting article titled "How a Gold Farm Works" and it's
gonna be very long.
Here is a most informative post in the thread:

-----BEGIN QUOTE-----
I guess I should mention, as I failed to in my last post, that I have been in
the process of dismantling my "business" since Christmas. You may wonder why I
do not just fold it up completely and immediately, but that lies in needing to
make sure that those I am responsible for, are taken care of. I expect to be
completely done within the month.

This is going to be long, but I'd like to explain what my business essentially
was, and my views on things in general and why what is currently going on is
quite serious for EQ. Not just for the plat sellers like I was, or just those
who rely on bazaar gears and trading to equip their character, but also those
at the raiding level. While it certainly impacts raiders the least, it does

I started selling about 7 years ago. I started on my home server, amongst a
few other sellers. At the time EQ was EQ, no expansions, fairly new, and you
could sell 1,000 platinum for $500. I got into selling because of a GM at the
time who I spoke to on occasion who was selling platinum and other items from
places like mistmoore, guk, and solusek b. This was at a time a GM was an
unpaid volunteer player, and the kinks hadn't been worked out as far as the
EULA which forbid the buying and selling of intellectual property.

I have tried everything I can can think of to illiminate this freeze-up problem when using sym farm (which isn't much being an ill informed computer user wanna be).

I checked the game's notes and consequently tried to temporarily disable my virus protection to see if that would work.

Do I have to uninstall my virus protection in order to run this thing? If not, how does one properly disable a virus program. It seems to thread in and out of everything on my hard drive.

I also am running Norton Utilities. Do I have to disable this program as well?

We also have Sym Ant which works well on this configeration.

I have a "genuine Intel" 166 MHz chip, with 32 MB RAM. I am currently also using Windows 95.

I'd appreciate any feedback as I'm really at a loss as to why we can't use this game.

Thanks for your suggestions.

A:Sym Farm freezes up when I try to sell things

Do you use Norton anti-virus? Press ctrl + alt + del and when the screen pops up you'll have a list of programs running. Norton will be called something like Navapw32 on the list. Click once on it then click end task to disable it. You can do that for all other programs except Explorer and Systray. That'll free up memory. See if that helps.

It's possible that you may not have enough RAM memory to run that game. How much RAM does that game require? It will say on the box if you have the box.

I built my own pc, and have been running the current setup for a few months now. I dont overclock or anything.

Last night I ran NAV full system scan since i hadnt done it in a while, then went to take a shower. When i came back, the PC was locked-up, but i could see on the locked-up screen NAV found 3 viruses but only completed 17% of the scan. I was forced to pull the ac plug to turn it off since cold booting it wouldn't function or even the power button. After i plugged it back in and turned it on, the PC wouldnt post at all. I could see the mb light on, and all the fans in the pc were running (cpu fan, ps fan, case fans, video card fan, etc), but the monitor wasnt even getting a signal and it wouldnt post.

Here's what i tried so far:
> I have two ram sticks. I swapped them out and tried booting with just one stick, trying both by themselves
>I substituted in a different video card. Still didnt post.
>I tried adding a little thermal paste to my cpu since it didnt look like it had enough. still no post.

My guess is that either my CPU or my motherboard went bad. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if my pc had a detrimental virus, it would still at least "post" since the pc doesnt even notice the HDD until after it finds it in the initial posting information which comes after the cpu and ram count. I'm thinking that was just a concidence.

Well my boss has decided to go crazy and has tasked me with trying to buy server hardware for a new Citrix farm he wants to implement.

The problem is the talks I have had with Citrix people I can't get ANY kind of help as far as number of users per server CPU, RAM requirements and things of that nature, this is making it difficult to tell my boss the hardware we should get.

I already know we want Raid 5 and a fair amount of storage (as citrix has to have the applications images loaded onto the server correct?), will multi processor help the number of users that can connect?

With this in mind and knowing we only use standard applications I.E. windows XP pro, Office 2003, and fery few other applications does anyone have a clue what type of servers I should be looking at? I.E. RAM requirements and CPU speed.

Is CPU speed directly proportional to the number of users who can connect to any given server? I know we are going to have some kind of load balencing solution for failover but I wanted to get some ideas on what to prep for.

I had an AMD2000+ desktop PC, with 512MB RAM, 120GB HD and decent Graphics Card.
I have captured video off of DV Camera, VCR and TV (through DV Camera, via Firewire), onto my PC, many times.
But once I had edited the video, and tried rendering it (before burning to DVD) the rendering would simply stop, or the whole PC would freeze.
Of the number of times i have tried this, 80% of the time, the rendering of the video would be unsuccessful.

I had XP on that PC, Service Pack 2 and all the necesary updates. No programmes were running during the rendering process and there was always more than enough free space for the projects.

I seeked assistance from the video editing software support team, but none of the info they gave me helped, and i then thought maybe there was something wrong with my PC itself (i.e. the motherboard etc).

Soon afterwards i got a Fujitsu Siemens laptop. 1.6Ghz Intel Processor, 60GB HD, Service Pack 2, 1GB of RAM, and even a new VCR, in case the footage being captured was problematic.

But when i attempted to render another movie, the rendering stopped once more. I then deleted scenes from the footage where the rendering stopped and tried again, with no luck.

As i said, i have captured from different sources, and sometimes the rendering works, but most of the time it doesn't.

If someone can give me substantial assistance (i have tried everything i can think of so far) i would be ever so greatful. If not, then i hope someone can at leas... Read more

A:Cannot Render Video

Hrm, there's a number of things that can go wrong with rendering video.
First off, you need to make sure that you're using the correct codec for the format you want to render to.
Get the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack from http://www.k-litecodecpack.com/
That should get you all the latest codecs.

Then, there's the problem of which player you're using to render the video. Some players do better with some formats than others. Luckily, K-Lite incudes the best media players with the Mega Pack.

You are correct that a 1.6 GHz Intel processor (Centrino Celeron, I assume?) isn't optimal for Video Editing, but it should still be able to get the job done. Heck, I remember editing video on my old Celeron 533Mhz. Sure, it took all day to render a short video clip, but it eventualy got there. :). I'd get a Pentium D 3.20 Ghz and overclock it to around 3.60~3.80 Ghz and slap in 3GB of DDR2 RAM and an ATI FireGL card if I really wanted to make a beast of a Video Editing machine. But that's just me.

well, Im at a loss on this one.

Ive been rendering a piece now for 12 hrs and its only about 50% done.

The PC is AMD 64 / 4200 Dual Core @ 2.2Ghz with 2GB RAM, 256M GeForce card, lots of room on the programs drive 250G SATA and 2x320G RAID SATAs.

The procedure:

Im using WMM to capture the vhs tape but that only outputs at 620 x 320 or something and cant burn to DVD from there)

NTSC wants 720 x 480 (off the top of my head?)

Since WMM wont do that, Im importing that capture into Ulead Video Studio 8 and using that to render out to a 720 x 480 format. (this is taking the time). But the output from here is too large for a 4.7G disk and there appears to be no way to compress it from within Ulead.

Once its in the right size format, then it can be imported into Adobe Premiere, and Encore DVD. (once there, further encoding/ burning was a snap last time - 2 hr program encoded and burned in under an hour last time) and THAT product fits perfectly on a 4.7G disk.

but I dont recall Ulead taking that long to render last time.

I just had the new RAID mirror drives installed, would this have anything to do with it?

any ideas?

A:Render Times

Capture at 720x480 to begin with, what device are you using to capture?

Edit: Nevermind... you're the same one that posted before... your going trhrough way too many steps. Capture once and convert it once. You're just making problems for yourself, I think the biggest problem is the device you are using. See the thread I started on capturing VHS, about all the information you need for gettin the file to your computer is there.

Ok, why didn't you specify the game?

The game is important when addressing this issue.
You can download GPU-Z to get all the info on your GPU as well.

And you don't get a plugin to support an API that your GPU...doesn't support.

And your sig is an insult.

I have a web page I'm working on:
and in IE it looks great...however in Netscape the top bars stretch down too far and throw off the balance of the page. Now, everything is defined in terms of pixels and I can't find any reason why they do this. Anyone have any ideas? I'd really appreciate it.

I play games a lot, and sometimes take video with my friends in MSI Afterburner so we can see it later. But MSI Afterburner makes HUGE files when recording. What program should I use to render this raw footage and make it smaller, but still high quality?

A:How should I render gameplay footage?

Which kind of video file does it make ? You could use some converter to shrink them but any conversion to smaller file requires applying different codec and some quality loss.
Here's some programs that can be used for that. Download Converters Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

I am considering the following Dell computer to be used primarily for video editing/rendering

Comments? Applicability?

A:Considering video edit/render PC

Looks okay. That GPU is compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro mercury playback engine.

I'd build my own rig if this is for a personal purchase.

If it's for corporate, I guess you're with Dell for a reason. Increase the GPU to a GTX 660, or a 2GB model if you can.

Okay here's my problem. When I fire up a game and I finally get to either the main menu or somewhere else Direct3D is used, the screen is all garbled, flashes, and appears to be a rendering issue to me. The games I tried it in were GTA: Vice City, Dues Ex 2, and Warcraft III TFT.

Here's the System...

Asus A7N8X mobo (nforce2 chipset)
512mb RAM Corsair XMS 3200DDR (Just 1 stick, should be 2 i know...)
Radeon 9700 Pro 128

incase you need this...
350 watt power supply
Western Digital hard drive, 80 gigs
Windows XP Professional

I have the NEWEST:
bios flash
Catalyst Drivers
nforce2 drivers

and Im running pretty much the default settings on the motherboard AND under the video card settings in the display control panel.

I've been scouring the internet for days and I've tried almost everything without luck so any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks in advance =)

A:Radeon 9700 Pro 128 Won't Render

First off, dont flash your bios unless it is preventing you from using a feature you need. If your computer worked fine with the bios you have, no sense in upgrading it. I think you may have a corrupt DirectX install. Run dxdiag from the command line and see if all of your files are installed. Then run some of the basic DirectDraw and Direct3D tests, to see if they work. If that doesnt help, try earlier versions of the catalyst software. When I upgraded from 3.8 to 3.10 I could no longer control AA and AF in any of my games. I think older drivers may be the better way to go, just so you know if that is the problem or not. I've had the best success with catalyst 3.7 drivers, which may seem old. I use the same board you do, and had a Radeon 9700 pro at one time (9800 now) and had a few probs with artifacting and poor frames in certain games, battlefield was the most noticeable. Also, does your computer lock up, or just not play those games right. You might want to check the heatsink for attachment. And the last thing I can think of at the moment is the SMARTGART tool that ATI integrates into their drivers. dont uninstall this, if you did, reinstall your drivers. This can be helpful in troubleshooting.

If you can post with a few more details I willl help out further.

Im trying to do a space scene ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGcToM_DyKU ) and when i try to render it using the post render menu, it either says "camera not found" or "internal error". In the case of the camera not being found, i just close the dialog box and retry. When it says internal error, it crashes. Both of these things happen right after completely rendering the first frame. If it's not one, it's the other. I need help quick!

P.S. Im using 3ds Max 10

A:3ds Max Post Render Problem

i sort of fixed the problem by switching the render output to .mov instead of .avi. i still dont know why it crashes on .avi but its annoying since i have a pc and i suck at windows movie maker (or it sucks). I've had to result in the painful task of using my school's macs.

I can't import or render mp4 or mkv files in Cyberlink PowerDirector 12 Ultimate. I get this error when trying to import the file:
"An error occurred while opening this media file in the media library. It may be because the file is broken, an unsupported format, protected video content or for another reason"
This is impossible because it does the same thing with all of my mp4 and mkv files. They are basically motorsport races and not all with the same video details.
I can view them just fine in BS Player and VLC.
I use Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 fully updated. I have the latest hardware drivers from the manufacturer websites (ASUS & Nvidia)

Hi guys,

For 2 days I?ve tried all that I could.
Every setting is set so that GTA uses my NVIDIA GeForce 940M... nothing works.

For some reason, whenever the game loads, it uses the Microsoft render basic driver. The game literally has 1/2FPS.. I know this because of the benchmark test.
That?s also where I discovered it uses that Microsoft driver?

I reinstalled both of my drivers several times, googled for hours but nothing seems to work..
