For Linux headless, gonna use Ubuntu.


wget https://download.foldingathome.org/releases/public/release/fahclient/debian-stable-64bit/v7.5/fahclient_7.5.1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i --force-depends fahclient_7.5.1_amd64.deb

Input your name, team 246218, passkey if you made one (can be blank), LIGHT/MEDIUM/FULL, and autostart Yes

to allow remote web viewing from another PC on your network since this is headless.

nano /etc/fahclient/config.xml

add these 2 lines, is your main network IP.

  <!-- HTTP Server -->
  <allow v=','/>
  <!-- Web Server -->
  <web-allow v=','/>

restart the service

systemctl restart FAHClient.service

now check out the IP address with port number

Should see this

To remote control the linux headless using FAHControl on Windows for instance.

Edit config.xml on your headless server to include the password line.

  <!-- Remote Command Server -->
  <password v='password'/>

example config.xml, replace passkey with your generated passkey for bonus points and make up a password for password.

  <!-- Client Control -->
  <fold-anon v='true'/>

  <!-- Folding Slot Configuration -->
  <gpu v='false'/>

  <!-- HTTP Server -->
  <allow v=','/>

  <!-- Remote Command Server -->
  <password v='password'/>

  <!-- Slot Control -->
  <power v='FULL'/>

  <!-- User Information -->
  <passkey v='passkey'/>
  <team v='246218'/>
  <user v='buzzkillb'/>

  <!-- Web Server -->
  <web-allow v=','/>

  <!-- Folding Slots -->
  <slot id='0' type='CPU'/>

Restart the headless client

sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient restart

Then in Windows go to FAHControl and add your server.

Click Add in bottom left, then give your server a Name, use the IP address of the server, and the password you made up in the above file.

To set big advanced work units for even more bonus points, go into FAHControl.

Click the Slots tab, then your slot and then edit


Then scroll down to Extra slot options and click Add


Then type in client-type and bigadv, then click OK, save and restart the client.

Getting multi nvidia GPU to work on Ubuntu headless is interesting. I am running on Ubuntu 19.10 Server headless with a mix of 1080 and 1070's.

install nvidia drivers

sudo apt install ubuntu-drivers-common
ubuntu-drivers devices
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

install opencl drivers

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev


sudo reboot

now install folding at home from the deb.

What I then did from FAHControl was remove all the slots and save.

If it worked you will see this in the System Info tab, if not try rebooting again.
