1. pyload on a Router?
The advantage in installing pyLoad on a Router is quite obvious: You don`t need to run your Computer several hours to make your Downloads. Your electricity saving Router can do this for you.
As pyLoad is written in python, it is possible to install it on a Router (if it supports this). The Router needs also a USB-connection for a Harddrive and you need a USB-Harddrive.
You can install pyLoad on the following Routers/NAS-Devices:
- most Router from Asus
- the Buffalo Linkstation live v3 and pro v3
- NAS-Devices with Optware (like Conceptronic and D-Link)
On the Router have a special Firmware (Linux) to be installed, which adds many functions for the Router, like
- and: pyLoad support
Tip: Text files can be edited with nano [File]. A line can be deleted with Ctrl+k
2.2 Buffalo LinkStation
There is no Danger for your Router. Changes can be simple be made reversed by deleting the pyLoad folder.
- Opening the Box
To make it possible to connect to the Box with telnet, you need to Download the acp_commander and save it on your PC.
Be sure to have java installed. Then open with start-run-cmd the windows command line and go to the acp_commander folder. then type:
acp_commander.jar -t [IP.OF.THE.BOX] -o -addons
Be sure to have your Firewall deactivated, to have the procedure running well.
- Installing of needed packages
To install the needed packages for pyLoad, we need to load the following file onto the hard drive of the box: http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs05q3armel/cross/stable/lspro-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
Then you need putty to connect trough telnet with the box (how that works everybody should know) The username is root and the password is empty. Navigate to your bootstrap file:
cd /mnt/disk1/[rest of the path to your file]then type ./lspro-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
now should be the following things to be installed when done:
ipkg updateipkg upgrade
so you can have your system always stayed up-to-date.
Now you can download the rest of the packages:
ipkg install pythonipkg install py25-cryptoipkg install py25-curlipkg install py25-djangoipkg install tesseract-ocripkg install unzipipkg install screenipkg install nanoipkg install tesseract-ocr-lang-eng
- Download the newest Version of pyLoad
just Download and extract it on the harddrive of your box.
- Adjusting the file
editing the config
cd /mnt/disk1/[rest of the path to your file]nano --nowrap config
then edit the config to your needs
write at listenaddr the ip of your box
- starting pyLoad
type in putty:
screen -dmS pyload python /mnt/disk1/[rest of the path to your file]/pyLoadCore.py
From now on pyLoad should be available from http://[IP.OF.THE.BOX]:[PORT.SET]
You can also use the command line interface which is saved in the pyLoad folder.
Salvation army brass instruments serial numbers. ./pyLoadCli.py -l
just use the values from the config-file
Thats all, have fun with pyLoad.
Chapter 1 - The Init-File /etc/init.d/rcS

mv /mnt/disk1/share/S90pyload.sh.txt /etc/rc.d/extensions/S90pyload.sh
Do not use Wordpad to edit or view it, or it will lose its Formatation!!!! ALWAYS use vi!!!
Give the File the right Permissions.
chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/extensions/S90pyload.sh
In S90pyload.sh change the Path to your Pyload-Installation(with vi!).
Chapter 3 - Alternative Configfolder
Create a new Folder for your future Config, for Example ”/mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/”
Copy the Content of ”/root/.pyload/” to your new Folder.
(Attention! Pyload MUST have been started, configured and quit for at least one Time!!!)
cp /root/.pyload/pyload.conf /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/pyload.conf
cp /root/.pyload/pyload.db /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/pyload.db
cp /root/.pyload/accounts.conf /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/accounts.conf
cp /root/.pyload/plugin.conf /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/plugin.conf
cp /root/.pyload/files.db /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/files.db
cp /root/.pyload/files.db-journal /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/files.db-journal
cp /root/.pyload/files.version /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/files.version
Change to Folder ”/mnt/…/pyload/module/config/”.
Type into Console:
Now type in the new Cofigfolder /mnt/disk1/optware/.pyload/ and save.
After the next Reboot, Pyload and its Webinterface should be Available. Greets ZeroCoolRiddler
