Where technology and lunacy meet

    When you want to access the webpage from your workstation, you need to open port 80 in the firewall.

  • Torrent Multi User Client

  • Introduction

    There are several ways to make a torrent client that can be remote controlled. I've decided to use Azureus, as I have good experience with it. And it can be remote controlled.
    Some will say that it's not a good idea to run xorg on a server. Unfortunately I have no choice because I want to use azureus! I tried torrentflux, but It didn't work very well. Actually catastrophic comes to mind :-)

  • webmin

  • Installation of webmin on our arch server

    To have a more GUI way of controlling our server we will install the webmin interface. This allows us to use a web-browser for configurations.
    There are two ways to install webmin. We can use either the version in the repos or download it directly from the webmin homepage.

  • Arch Samba Server
