    Nowadays I see a lot of people running their primary computer most of the time for downloading torrents. In my opinion this approach has the following problems.

    1. High power usage. Most of our gaming systems are configured with quad core processors and power hungry GPUs. So they use a lot of power even in idle state. Running such systems 24/4 will cost you a lot.
    2. Most of us run an always on internet connection. But commonly we are out of home for 8-10 hours every day. So in many cases the connection is unused for almost half of the day. In this present electricity condition it’s not a good idea leaving your expansive gaming system running at home when you’re out.

    In this tutorial I’ll explain setting up a home server + torrent downloader which will have the following benefits.

    1. Will cost you a little to setup plus much more efficient in terms on power consumption.
    2. Will be a secure UNIX system. But fear not. You won’t need to type a single line of command to set it up.
    3. (Optional) Will have a fully automated shutdown and power on system to tackle the load shedding problem. Just set it and forget it type.
    4. (Optional) Will run headless (without monitor, keyboard, and mouse). Can be put anywhere you like. You’ll access it via your web browser.
    5. (Optional) BDCOM/Smile, Link3 users will be able to control their torrents from anywhere through mobile, laptop.
    6. (Optional) Stream the videos, music, pictures to the network connected media players, game consoles, smart phones, computers etc.

    Requirements:
    1. A CPU. The motherboard must be able to boot from USB. Minimum 512MB RAM. Monitor and keyboard will be needed for setup only.
    2. A 512MB or higher pendrive. It’ll be permanently attached to the server. So use a spare one.
    3. A router. Now TP-Link is offering a router for less than 1500tk. So there’s no excuse of not getting one.
    4. DHCP server option in your router. How to enable it is beyond the scope of this tutorial. Refer to your router documentation or Google it.
    5. Ethernet cable.
    6. Another PC for setting things up.
    7. (Optional) A UPS with a serial port. I’ve used a RahimAfrooz 1000VA in this tutorial. PowerTree will also work. More on this later.
    8. (Optional) Serial cable. If you don’t have a serial port on your motherboard you’ll need a USB to Serial cable. Will cost you 250tk at Multiplan.
    9. (Optional) Internet connection with a real IP if you want to access your server when you’re out of home.

    Preparing the pendrive:
    1. Download FreeNAS image file from here. Download the img file named "FreeNAS-i386-embedded-0.7.2.6469.img" not the "FreeNAS-i386-LiveCD-0.7.2.6469.iso" one. If you have a 64bit processor download the 64bit build. Remember we are using FreeNAS 7 nightly build. FreeNAS 8 has been released recently. But it has a higher system requirement and lacks some key features we need (torrent, ups). So DO NOT download that.

    2. Download “physdiskwrite 0.5.2 + PhysGUI” from here. It’s a small utility we’ll use for writing the disk image to the pendrive. It needs .NET Framework 3.5 to run. Vista/7 users won’t need that but XP users will.

    3. Plug in your pendrive.

    4. Go to start menu and type “cmd” in the search box. Right click on the result and select “Run as administrator”.

    5. A command window will appear. Type “diskpart” and press enter.

    6. Now type “list disk” and press enter. From the output carefully check the number of your pendrive. In my case it’s disk 1. People with multiple HDDs need to be careful, cause putting the wrong disk number in the next steps will erase your secondary HDD.

    7. Now type “select disk 1”. Again, be careful with your disk no!

    8. Type “clean”.

    9. Type “create partition primary”.

    10. Type “active”.

    11. Now type “exit” and close the command window. Do not remove the pendrive from the computer.

    12. Unzip the downloaded file. In the unzipped folder you’ll get a file named PhysGUI. Right click on it and click “Run as administrator”

    13. The following window will show up. I don’t know what language it is, just follow the added images and you should be good to go.

    14. After the above procedure is finished disconnect the pendrive using safely remove command.

    Constructive suggestions are welcome. Thanks for reading.

    Should it be crossover or straight?

    Since you have a router, straight. Without it, crossover and + a network card.

    Preparing the BIOS of the server:
    1. Get into the BIOS of your server computer and make the following changes. Remember, BIOS options vary from motherboard to motherboard. So your one might net be exactly like mine. But the basic procedure is same.
    2. From the first screen disable floppy drive.
    3. From the “Boot menu” set the first boot device to “USB HDD”. Set other boot devices to “Disabled”.
    4. From the power menu set “After power failure” to “Always on”. If you don't want to turn on your server automatically after load shedding leave it to it's default value. You can also choose "Last State".
    5. (Optional) From the “Integrated Peripherals” menu set all the unnecessary components to “Disabled”, e.g. Onboard Audio, firewire, parallel, serial, IDE controller, Floppy controller etc. if you’re going to connect your UPS using serial cable, leave it “Enabled”. Leave the IDE controller enabled if you’re going to use an IDE HDD. Note that, on some old machines disabling the IDE controller might stop the system from booting, like my Asus P4GE-MX (D845 chipset).
    6. (Optional) Set your SATA ports to AHCI
    7. (Optional) Disable EIST (Enhanced Intel Speed-step Technology). FreeNAS has its own way of powering down the processor (more on this later).
    8. Save and exit.

    Setting up FreeNAS:
    1. Remove all unnecessary peripherals from the server machine (CD ROM, Sound card, Graphics Card if you have an onboard graphics).
    2. Connect it to a monitor. Connect a keyboard to it. Connect it to your router with the Ethernet cable. Make sure DHCP is turned on in your router. Also make sure your main PC is connected to the router and running.
    3. Connect the prepared pendrive. It’ll be permanently attached to the server. So it’s a good idea to plug it in the back panel.
    4. Turn on the computer and. It should boot from the pendrive. Wait until the following window appears.
    5. It should show an IP to access the server (192.168.1.250 in my case). Write it down.

    6. Now go to your main PC. Open your fevourite browser and enter that IP. The following page should show up. Enter “admin” as user name and “freenas” as password.

    7. Now this page should show up. Congrats!!! Your main FreeNAS setup is complete.

    8. Power cycle the machine several times to make sure everything is working properly. Simulate a load shedding by removing the power cord when it’s running. Every time the machine should boot automatically (without pressing the power button) and the console should appear. You should be able to log onto it from your main PC via web browser. Keep in mind, on older systems FreeNAS needs a few minutes to boot (5 minutes on my socket 478 Celeron 2.26GHz). So be patient.

    To be continued...

    Yes it'll work. But 512MB+ RAM is recommended. Personally i'm using a similar configuration. I didn't update this thread for the lack of interest of people. It's not finished. If you're still interested I'll add the remaining tutorials.
