    I wanted to give to the low end community! I've loved this community for years and I had some extra resources that I got for a decent deal, don't get charged for the extra electricity, and am filling my hobby. Donations welcome but otherwise 100% free.

    Give the free boxes a test and tell me what I could do better. Feel free to upgrade Debian as well haha.

    Tiny VM Specs:
    CPU: .25 Xeon E5649 core
    RAM: 384MB,
    Vdisk: 25GB,
    KVM Debian 7.11.0

    Micro VM Specs:
    CPU: .10 Xeon E5649 core
    RAM: 32MB,
    Vdisk: 5GB,
    KVM SliTaz 2.0

    http://freebox.us.to
    http://free.vpsbox.info
    http://please.host.us.to

    Any will do and best regards! I wish I had a full subnet but unfortunately I dont have multiple IP's ports are limited.

      Waiting for VM timeout... please try again later

    • Updated VM deploy timeout from 30 minutes to 5 minutes to reduce the output of "Waiting for VM timeout... please try again later"

      How so?

      People here are just looking to abuse it. They don't give a f if cpu mining is obsolete, they will do it.

    • duckeeyuck, good luck to them I throttle the processes CPU usage xD They're not gonna get far.

      You will be surprised how far they can go for the extent to get free stuff. Photoshopped license and IDs, fake company letters are not unheard of.

      We are just worried you'll get the public IP banned if you let scammers in or worse if you let people host something more illegal (botnet, terrorism promoters, suicide, child pornography).

      Distrotest does something similar, but they block internet access and gives the server for a limited time for testing. Maybe you can look into it? https://distrotest.net/

      Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

      I took a look at your site. On second thought, it looks like you know what you're doing and that you won't be caught off-guard. (It's just tricky to offer something free in this corner of the woods.)

      Yeah, I'm still developing and adding on top of it. I will also be doing some work with my personal distribution to replace SliTaz & Debian with something a bit newer but restricted to only a few uses (FTP, HTTP, etc). I'm also doing some work for internet activity logging per VM.

    • None of my SSH clients support the protocol the micro VM is using, so... looks like it'll be idling for a while.

      wget https://s.flamz.pw/dl/bench.sh && bash bench.sh

      Are you on windows? I normally use Bitvise SSH Client. Maybe give it a try: https://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client-download

      Thank you @FAT32, old ass version of dropbear doesn't play well with newer versions of openssh lol. However, I have just updated the website and VM list. I will be removing all VM disks, and I highly recommend using the new free VM. Ships with a current version of Alpine Linux, and is light yet easy to use.

    • Current VM specs are set to give every user the same opportunities. Also allows me to allocate more VMs with what's available.

      OS: Alpine Linux (current)
      RAM: 128MB dedicated
      CPU: 25% of 1 Xeon E5649 core
      Vdisk: 10GB
      Qemu KVM emulation

      Had set up a 'slitaz' VM early in the morning, but the alpine one is cool too. Except for having to correct 'apt' to 'apk' every time.

      @Pentium44 are you looking for specific BM/ type of feedback? nench and bench ran well, YABS gave the following error which I suppose is not a deal breaker.

      Performing IPv4 iperf3 test to Bouygues Telecom...
      timeout: can't execute './2019-10-20T22_55_49-0700/iperf/iperf3': No such file or directory
      timeout: can't execute './2019-10-20T22_55_49-0700/iperf/
      

      on nench, got the flag:
      dd: sequential write speed
      [disabled due to missing GNU dd]

      Nginx setup was easy, well documented, port forwarding (ssh, http work well). Did not try 'extra', irc or Minecraft. Stuck with sftp for now.

      Other than the un-learning and re-learning which was rather quick, not too much to complain with alpine. I might have accidentally created a second panel- number 52 I believe, apologies, you may terminate that to free up for someone else.

      Thanks

      Thank you! I was wondering why apt or yum wasn't working. When I saw online to use apk, I didn't trust it since it was too similar to android apps extension (APK).

      lol... there was a time when I used to think alpine Linux was derived from arch linux, so my first step was to type
      sudo pacman....
      which of course did not work, had to look up the alpine package management page
      great start to Monday morning learnt something new :-)

      Should be a way to delete/free your VM if you are finished with it.

      @Pentium44 You cannot just be nice to people and give them free stuff...
      I've tried, it's just a waste of time and effort, not to mention money.
      They shall undermine and abuse you.
      It's like giving a pig an open buffeT. It'll just eat and shit all over the place.
      You must be tough but fair with them.
      Like, here's a vps, but i am taking away your cookie.
      "Waaa, i want my cookie!"
      - You should've thought about that before you ate that vps!
      - You want another one? But i am taking away that tuna fish can as well.
      "Nah, i'll be modest and good."
      Then he will know to appreciate the vps, since it costed him being hungry.
      Plus you'll filter out most abusers.
      Plus you'll have cookies.
      And by gathering too many cookies you might eventualy achieve world domination.
