I’ve been experimenting with installing SteamCache as a Docker container on my unRAID server using the instructions provided by SquishedMoo here: https://squishedmooo.com/how-to-install-steamcache-on-unraid/
I ran into issues with websites not loading for me and discovered that the issue was my some settings I have on my Peplink router. I primarily use the Peplink router so that I can have two internet service providers running at the same time with a cellular failover due to the poor reliability and speeds in the rural area where I live. What I discovered was that I had inadvertently checked a couple of boxes when I first got the router that were causing all my problems. The settings were located in Network > Lan Network Settings > DNS Proxy Settings. Once I unchecked “DNS Caching” and “Include Google Public DNS Server” my SteamCache began to work correctly. On some computers I also needed to disable ipv6, but I already had it disabled on my router to begin with.

The URL for my blog post on SteamCache has changed now as I’m running the blog on Ghost rather than WordPress. You can find the post here: https://squishedmooo.com/how-to-install-steamcache-on-unraid/ if you want to change your link
Thanks for the heads up! I got it changed!
