I installed giFT with the openFT and gnutella plugins.
I also installed toxic and the courses UIs.
When I start either of them is syncs my shared folders well but in toxic I'm never connected to anything and when I try to search for something all I get is "search in progress" and no results even when I wait a long time.
the same thing goes with the courses UI.
My computer is behind a router and I forwarded the openFT ports I defined (2096, 2285) the giFT port 1213 and the gnutella port 6346.
I also added giftd to hosts.allow
have I forgot something that prevents me from connecting?
Ok, I managed to make openFT work, it seems I simply had to copy nodes file from /usr/share/giFT/openFT to my /~/.giFT/openFT
But the gnutella still doesn't work.
it seems that the gwebcaches is out of date and I can't find a new one...
sudo pacman -S giftui
and you're done
pacman -S wine
get 2 or 3 DLLS needed and described in WineHQ for DC++
and then wine dcplusplus.exe
The pacman and stuff I already did.
I got FastTrack and openFT working, I simply can't get gnutella to work as well.
why do I need DC++?
Same problem with connecting to Gnutella. I made my comp DMZ on the router and all traffic is allowed in on my Linux partition but only Gnutella refuses to connect no matter what port it uses.
I'm too lazy to try Gnutella in Windows.... Although I thought Limewire was Gnutella which works in Linux just fine... I was told that just letting it sit for awhile will get it to connect via some Apollon board but three days hasn't done anything. I have Comcast Internet for cable, who is your provider? Could possibly have something to do on their end.
My provider is Actcom, it's an israeli company - considering the fact I live in israel :-)
And Limewire works for me so I don't think it's a provider problem...
it's something to do with the gnutella configuration or package...
I guess not.... Anyone else have this problem with the Gnutella P2P in giFT?
Found out its something to do with the configuration files in ./giFT/Gnutella directory. Google it or leave me a PM and I can send you my conf files if you can't get Gnutella to get to anywhere.
UPDATE (this is what I did to get the working config):
If you have Windows download KCeasy (gift ui) at http://www.kceasy.com. Simply copy the files from c:Program FileskceasygiFTcongGnutella directory to where the Gnutella config files are in Linux. Be sure to alter the newly copied config file to your specifications.
