    I got my server ready in 3 days
    but if you choose the 300GB metered that would be insufficient for the whole one month
    besides, it's very confusing at ihostvps, sometimes they shutdown the vps if someone happen to seed torrents for a long time, I got mine disconnected 8 times this month

    Ask your host, it's usually around 24-72 hours.

    There are a few guides for seedboxes located at http://www.Torrent-Source.net

    Hi Mike, I presume you're running CentOS 4/5 on your server. To get wine to install properly, you need to follow the instructions here to add the dag rpm repositories into the yum program. You can probably ignore all the other 3rd party repos on that page.

    If vncserver :1 has the command not found, then vncserver didn't install when you tried. Anyways, here is a quick instruction that should work to get a nice vnc session running:

    (after successfully adding the dag repo)
    yum install vnc-server xterm fluxbox wine
    mkdir .vnc
    nano .vnc/xstartup
    type fluxbox into the xstartup file, save and quit
    chmod +x .vnc/xstartup
    vncserver :1 (it will ask for a password)
    now connect to your.ip:1 using a vnc viewer using the password above
    right-click on desktop to start xterm, then type: wine utorrent.exe (assuming you follow the tutorial to wget it)

    Good luck.
