Are you wanting to run Folding@Home (F@H) or Rosetta@Home (R@H) as they are two different distributed computing programs.

Folding usually refers to F@H and dosn't use much bandwidth.

Running Rosetta and other Boinc projects is commonly referred to as Crunching to differentiate it from F@H.

In R@H you have the option to choose how long each task is crunched for, changing the runtime from the default 3 hrs to something like 8 hrs or more per task will minimize the bandwidth used.

FYI I have 6 GPU and 3 CPU clients running F@H, and also run Rosetta@Home, Poem@Home, Seti@Home and WCG and rarely exceed 180 mb a day.

If you feel R@H will use too much bandwidth consider running Poem@Home as it uses very little...
