This will enable you to make a website to report your HFM stats to. Its extremely easy to do and requires very little work. This is meant to be an alternative to ftping your stats to a remote server.

1. Sign up for dropbox!
https://www.dropbox.com/

For those of you that don't know what dropbox is, see the video they have on their homepage, it can explain it far better than I can.


2. After you've signed up and downloaded/installed the dropbox client go into HFM. Go to Edit->Preferences->Scheduled Tasks. You should see the following:



On the bottom section make sure "Create a Website" is selected, select a refresh rate and make sure it is set to copy into the 'Public' folder of your dropbox directory (a sub-folder will work as well).

3. Next go to the dropbox website, this is easily done by right-clicking your dropbox icon (on the taskbar) and clicking "Launch Dropbox Website."


4. Navigate to whatever directory you have your stats copying into. You will have to wait till HFM at least does the first update.



Right-Click 'Summary.html' and select "Copy Public Link." You now can use this public link to access your HFM stats anywhere in the world. Here is an example of mine:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4388148/Folding/summary.html

For those of you not running HFM on your main machine pinning this to your bookmarks is a great way to have quick access to your folding progress.
(Also, note the "mobilesummary.html" this will render a mobile version for those of us who don't have smart phones.)

But look at that URL! Its so lonnngggg! Wouldn't it be nice if we could shorten that to something we can remember off the top of our heads?
Continue reading if interested.

5. Now you need a DynDns account. Go here: http://www.dyndns.com/index3.html
Go to the bottom of the page and select what domain name you would like to use and what suffix you want on it. (See red box on picture)



6. You'll be prompted to create an account, after registering login at the dyndns.com and click "My Services" in the upper right corner. That should bring you to a screen that looks like this:



7. Click on the name you just created (under "Host Services) you should come to a page that looks like this:



Change your service type to "WebHop" and input the public url for "summary.html"
Click Save Changes and you should be good to go! Make sure to try out your new url redirect, for those of you using mobile phones you can also make a redirect for "mobilesummary.html"

Here is an example of my folding stats with the re-directed URL: http://klue22folding.dyndns.org/
Link now broken, I now use an apache server at my house to host my folding website, rather than dropbox. If you're interested in setting that up, pm me!
My current stats can now be seen at
www.vikki.dnsalias.net

Got Money?
For those of you with cash to burn (sadly I do not
) DynDns should allow you to register your custom domain name and use it for your redirecting url. This way you won't have to have the suffix like the free urls have.

Questions? Comments? Concerns?

It was a life-saver for me when I set it up. I hated not knowing what my computers where still running.

That's the bane of dynamic IP addresses.

If you still want to host the files yourself though you can. You're router/modem should have a place to enter dynamic DNS information. Once that's done each time the IP at your house changes your router/modem will contact your dynamic DNS provider and let them know what your new address is. That should then update your host name to resolve to your new address. Here's a screenshot example of my modem.

I doubt it'll be soon, to be honest.

One of two things need to happen:

1) Stanford need to separate their current log form the jumbled mess, into something more akin to the v6 logs. This is planned (to an extent), but won't be made public until the next major release, which I believe is a few months away.

2) Harlam needs to update HFM to be able to interpret the current v7 logs. Not only is that a job that would take him a few weeks anyway, but he's also been kept busy in his personal life, delaying it further.

I suppose you could say Fahmon might be updated before either of those two, but the latest version of Fahmon doesn't even calculate my GPU PPD correclty; I've lost quite a bit of confidence in it, and it doesn't have the WU history feature HFM has.

I'm sure I posted on this thread before (or maybe it was another, very similar thread) so I'll give it a free BUMP to get added to it...

[[EDIT: Turns out that I was actually thinking of this thread: [URL=http://www.overclock.net/foldi...dows-7-remote-monitoring-fahmon-hfm.html[/url] ]]

You can just get HFM to save the resulting files to your local drive, then use DB to share that out...then you don't have the issue with your username..

I also had a similar issue, where the script I was using (with a previous, free site) no longer worked when I changed it to go to my nude-lewd-man.co.uk (paid) site, so I had to revert to using DB on both of my HFM client machines (SRV01 and WORK_PC) so that I could check it.. I've also set a page up to monitor both of my HFM instances in one page:
http://www.nude-lewd-man.co.uk/index.php?p=N_L_M/index

on a side note, I'm also setting up pages for the other TC Teams..so that we can see what the live PPD is, and can see whether others on our own Teams are down for any reason....
