just by chance I guess. I don't know of any official place for good gwebcaches. There is however a semi-official OpenFT nodes file at http://jasta.gotlinux.org/gift/nodes.

Did the new gwebcaches file work then?

where shoud the gwebcaches file be? I have it at /usr/share/giFT/Gnutella/gwebcaches and when I type giftd -v it eventually says [01:31:15] *** GIFT-ERROR: gwebcaches file doesn't exist? Where do I need to put the file?

It needs to be at ~/.giFT/Gnutella/gwebcaches

If the Gnutella subdirectory doesn't exist, create it.

The ~ character is an abbreviation for your home directory, so it should be at /home/<yourname>/.giFT/Gnutella/gwebcaches.

Not sure if this is the place to ask, but just a quick question about Fasttrack. I know that a couple of months ago, after the Kazaa people shut down Kazaa lite, they changed the FT protocols keep K-lite people from being able to use the network. The result is that now, you can barely find anything using K-lite, since you can't search the files of the vast majority of Kazaa users. Does anyone know if gift-FT has been updated to the new protocol to avoid this problem. I can't find it anywhere on the gift-FT site.

I am behind a firewall, i was wondering does anyone know which ports i shoulld forward to my PC?

My firewall needs to know what incoming and outgoing ports to allow. Does anyone know what ports i should open? ports for OpenFT, Gnutella, and FastTrack

Thank you.

Yes, newer versions of giFT-Fasttrack support the new encryption

the Gnutella and FasttTrack ports are well-documented, a web search will tell you what you need, tho' IIRC 6346 is one of them. OpenFT ports are different for every user and by default are selected randomly when you run giFT-setup. Check in ~/.giFT/OpenFT/OpenFT.conf for the lines
Code:
port=xxxx
http_port=xxxx

Are these ports incoming and outgoing ports?

I can't seem to connect even though i forwarded the ports.

That's all you should need for the ports.

Ensure that you have a nodes file in ~/giFT/OpenFT, and maybe try grabbing the nodes from the giFT site (link is in my post at the top of this page).

If that doesn't work, post some of your giftd.log file.

I've opened up all the ports that were mensioned in the config file for OpenFT (lets get one plugin working first :D). I've opened them in both directions, from my server to the net and from the local network to the server.

I've copied the nodes from the post previously ^^
into ~/.giFT/OpenFT/nodes
I still get errors.

It seems that giFT can't connect to the other servers. I keep getting timeout. here's the log:

Here's what I do to run giftd:
First, create a user called giftd, and set gift up for him (gift-setup and all). Set the permissions on his download directories so you can access them (preferably - for a certain group).
Then I've created the following 3 scripts:

~giftd/bin/start-giftd: (chmod a+x)
Code:
#!/bin/sh

RETVAL=0

if [ -z `pidof giftd` ]; then
        giftd -d 2> ~/.giftd.pid;
else
        false;
fi


~giftd/bin/stop-giftd: (chmod a+x)
Code:
#!/bin/sh

if [ -e ~/.giftd.pid ]; then
        PID=`sed 's/.*giFT: //' ~/.giftd.pid`;
        kill $PID;
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
                rm ~/.giftd.pid
        fi
elif [ -n `pidof giftd` ]; then
        kill `pidof giftd`;
else
        false;
fi


And finally:
/etc/init.d/giftd: (chmod a+x)
Code:
#!/sbin/runscript

depend() {
        need net
}

start() {
        ebegin "Starting giftd"
        su - giftd -c "~/bin/start-giftd"
        eend $?
}

stop() {
        ebegin "Stopping giftd"
        su - giftd -c "~/bin/stop-giftd"
        eend $?
}


Then you might want to:
Code:
rc-update add giftd default
/etc/init.d/giftd start


"start-giftd: line 5: [: 12339: binary operator expected"

I have a little script that launches giftd as a daemon, fires up giFTcurs, and then kills giftd when giFTcurs closes.
Quote:

#! /bin/bash
giftd -d && \
giFTcurs && \
killall giftd

If you save this as 'gift' in your /usr/local/bin directory, all you have to do is launch a terminal emulator (or run from the terminal) and type 'gift'. I know, this isn't much of a script, but it gets the job done. And the one I use is a bit more envolved because I have gift setup to require two volumes that I normally don't have mounted, but I've omitted all of my conditional stuff because they only really serve my own purpose.

If someone is download does the download gets saved on the client PC or is it at the server?

Becuase i think i remember that you can close the client and the download will continue.

all downloads are going to /mnt/gift on my server, which is shared over NFS for my gentoo PC's and samba for my windows PC's

full read-write permission, it's just me my sis and my dad using that, i feel it's safe. the samba and nfs is purely LAN.

yeh it is. But will gift work that xinetd? not sure.
Also doesn't it require a lot of time to connect. i don't think it would be very good in that sense.
