It has been noted before that the freenet mailman lists are very quick
to disable delivery if your mailserver ever times out or anything. To
check if delivery is disabled, go to
and check if 'delivery disabled' is marked 'on'. And to prevent it
happening, make sure you're subscribed on an address hosted on a very
reachable mailserver.

Or for the more adventurous, you could subscribe to the lists you want
to see on more than one address, and set up a script from .forward that 
only sends on ones you haven't seen before, and if mail doesn't come
in for one of the addresses within a specific time while you have seen
mail from the other addresses fire off wget to reenable delivery on
that account. Still, it's kind of overkill...

/etc/nsswitch.conf perhaps?

Re: [freenet-support] Modem lines MTU?

 Yuck! I'm skeptical... Could well be snake oil. Please find me an

Bigger=Higher latency. It matters less on most modern ADSL and cable
modems as they're high-bandwidth which is throttled, but there are
older cable modems where it does give a marked latency decrease.

Re: [freenet-support] Bandwidth limiting of outgoing traffic...

 Since Freenet uses random ports for outgoing traffic, I can't really 
 shape it on my firewall either. (I do have an option to shape traffic 
 based on packet content. Do all Freenet packages have some common, 
 unique content perhaps?)
 The Freenet site suggested to control the bandwidth usage on the 
 OS-level instead. Who can tell me how to do this?

On linux you can tag packets with the iptables MARK target based on
uid or pid, and then use tc (from iproute2) filters to select only the
marked packets. No icky looking inside packets required. 

If you're shaping traffic on a different machine than the one running
freenet it's slightly more complicated, as the iptables MARKs don't go
out on the network, they're just there while the local machine is
juggling the packet. What I do is encode the appropriate policy in the
TOS header with --set-tos in the mangle table based on a MARK I set
based on the uid. Then, on the machine that does the traffic shaping
you just prioritise or drop based on the tos field, optionally
resetting it before pushing it out on the wire.

Similar facilities are available on many other OSes.
