Im trying to get it set up for this fileserver thing. Its a pentium D940 and a 7300gt. What client do i use? Ive been looking and trying to follow some of the guides but im not succeding (i dont think).

There was one guide that I was managing until it said I had to put in my windows password. I don't have one, and it wouldn't let me any further without one.

Any suggestions?

cheers

Is it just a folding rig your setting up matt?
Or are you wanting to remotely monitor it?
sorry dont quite understand...

Ive set my rig folding using the console version.

Once setup it runs as a windows service and can be monitored with Fahmon.

If you need a hand with the console i can help but im lost with anything more advanced.

well its acting as a filer server back up rig

Was looking at how to set it up properly but got lost in the myriad of instructions for console/client etc.

It is doing something though, so maybe it is working right?

if your running the console version and youve got it running ok as a service you should be able to pull up task manager and see two processes like FahCore_78.exe ( if your running on dual core that is )

ive got mine running at 100% so you will see on performance tab the cores flat out.

Running console theres a program called Fahmon that will tell you how far the protien etc has progressed.

Hi Matt,

with a D940 you best bet is to use the ordinary console client, click here to download.

As you have a dual core processor, you can run 2 of these clients as they are single threaded.

Create 2 folders e.g. "Folding 1" & "Folding 2" and unzip the client into each one.

Run the client in the first folder , completing nick and team details,
just hit enter on "passkey".

Leave the next 2 options on the "no" default. The next option set to big if you have 512MB or more of ram.

Next option to change advanced settings, change to "y",
Core priority leave at idle,
CPU usage default to 100%, so set as suits your rig (my server is at 100%).
You can just enter through the next 4 options,
at "Set -advmethods flag" change to "y".
Enter past the next one and leave "Machine ID" at 1.
Next option is to run as a service, so y or n as you want.
you can enter through the remaining questions and the client should now start as an open console.

Follow the same process for the client in the second folder, but give it Machine ID 2.

You should then have 2 clients running.

If you have to shut the system down, close the client consoles with Ctrl+C.
Next time you start the PC both will run in the back ground as a service.

To monitor the clients, you can use FahMon from any other computer on the network or even remotely with a VPN.

HTH.

Ian.
