 Freenet did work the day before, when i had an outdated java 5 version
 running. after reinstalling to the newest java version i keep getting
 the above error message. I uninstalled  installed freenet serveral
 times. I can't find helpful information on this specific error message.
 So please give me a hint on what to do!
 
 THANX,

This should be fixed by the new installer, no? (Deployed around the time of

  Thank you for this sugestion.  I have done this repeatedly, with no

  I note the following suggestion: it would be a good idea to forward
  the
  ports 61616 and 27307 (UDP) on your router.  How is this 
  accomplished?
 
  I am using firestarter firewall, and that's where I forward my ports (I
  am
  using ubuntu linux)
 
  The port may be blocked at any level *before* the firestarter even gets 
  a
  chance
  to see it. Think of the network connection as a water pipe, if you have
  several
  volves prior to the one at the tip of the hose closing any single one of
  them
  will block the flow of water.
 
  Router is the piece of hardware that takes the traffic it receives from
  one
  network and sends it to the different network. One of those networks 
  can
  actually be seen as the cloud of the Internet (since it is connected 
  on
  and on
  with more and more networks). At some point there is a closed port 
  before
  it
  reaches the internet.
 
  ISPs sometimes close the ports, and if you have a router in your house, 
  it
  may
  have come preconfigured to close everything unless told to do otherwise. 
  I
  honestly do not know enough at this point to help you any more... sorry.

  OK, here's how you forward your ports, nice and easy:
 
 
  First, let's identify the router
  The router is a piece of hardware that looks like a relatively small
  box, it comes in various sizes but the kind used at home is generally
  half the size of a laptop (a big laptop).
 
  The router has a number of ethernet ports, the cables used to connect to
  such ports end in RJ45 connectors that look like a bigger telephone
  jack. Routers often have one or two relatively short and thick antennas,
  sometime they only have ethernet ports. The most common home routers
  have 8 ports but there are much bigger ones.
 
  Your router is placed between your PC and the 'internet outlet' in the
  wall, in the sense that the ethernet cable (internet wire) from the back
  of your computer connects to the router, and the router connects to the
  'internet outlet').
  Find the router and note its brand and model.
  If you use a wireless connection, the router will only have a cable to
  the wall outlet and not to the PC, but it can be easily identified
  anyway: it's the box that must stay turned on, or your internet dies :P
  Physically locating your router is useful if you don't have a manual.
 
 
 
  The web interface
 
  If you happen to have a manual for your router, find out how to access
  the web interface. If you don't have a manual go to the manufacturer's
  web page (hint: www.brandname.com ), look for your model and find the
  information.
  Generally, the web interface is found at the router's IP address on port
  80, that means: if your router's IP is 10.0.0.1, you will probably find
  the web interface pointing a web browser to http://10.0.0.1
 
  In some cases the web interface is on a different port rather than the
  default http port 80. If that's the case use :port# at the end of the IP
  address, example http://10.0.0.1:8800 if the port is 8800.
 
 
 
 
  Finding out your router's IP
 
  To figure out where to point your web browser, do the follwoing:
  On Windows: open a cmd shell (start  run  (type) cmd [enter] ) and
  type 'ipconfig /all' (no quotes)
  On Linux, and other *nix (probably even Mac): open a terminal and type
  'ifconfig -a'
 
  That will give you your own IP address. Your router is probably in the
  same range at -0 or -1, e.g. if your IP address is 10.0.0.137 your
  router is probably (but not always) at 10.0.0.0 or 10.0.0.1 (if this
  doesnt help, google probably will)
 
 
 
 
  Forwarding ports
 
  Web interfaces don't look all exactly the same so I can't walk you
  through the whole procedure, but with help of your manual or the
  manufacturer's website (and Google) you should be able to figure out
  what to do as long as you know exactly what you want to accomplpish,
  which in our case is:
 
  * Forward port (number/s) FROM (the router's IP) = TO (the PC's IP) for
  protocol UDP *
 
  ...which is pretty much all what this

Re: [freenet-support] Piracy will not be tolerated

2009-11-07 Thread Mike Cook
Sorry, I was just trying to point out that some consider any mention of 
sharing copyrighted material, however fleeting, as proof positive that 
the whole purpose of the development of a technology is to steal their 
intellectual property . Personally I think the whole notion of 
copyright has gotten a little out of hand recently. I just was 
suggesting people should try to edit themselves on a public email list 
and try to avoid possible legal issues. Maybe a total ban was a bit 
extreme, perhaps a warning would have sufficed, but I'm not really 
familiar with all of the legal implications. Have a good day

 Welcome to the USA. You need to be very careful these days in regard to
 any discussion of file sharing. There are many legal pitfalls and many
 with deep pockets just looking for an opportunity to sue. Like it or not
 email lists are not a place to discuss illegal activities whether you
 agree with the law or not.

 Wow, that's a bit...extreme. I mean there's a _huge_ difference
 between refusing to give someone support, which may or may not be
 legal, and completely banning them. I mean just because _you_ can't
 help him doesn't mean nobody else on this list can. Way to alienate a
 rather significant percentage of the user base.
