I can't believe that Frost causes the corrupt datastore bug.
This bug happens very often, when a datatore is near full.

That's a good idea to use a Freenet-only machine on LAN,
and then use the FCP connection to this machine for
client applications. (stability, security, ...)

Do you use an up to date version of the Java Runtime Environment?
And a stable one? What's the output of java -version? 
Try it with a new version from

I use the Sun JRE version 1.4. My permanent node runs well with FMB, Frost
and FProxy (surfing) on the same machine. No problem with BlueScreens, 
rarely corrupt DS bug, but bad memory management on WinME.

Maybe its the box, but i doubt it since i put freenet on this little

So frostless it is for my main node.

Since i've been frostless for a week, i've done deliberate resets,

and not even ahint of a problem.

Anecdotal and spurious i know, but so far its No Frost, No Problems.

Dear Sir/Madam,
Is your program by pass the proxy in UAE  Saudi and kindly advise how
to configure the software to be best effective and quick ?

The Freenet Daemon must be able to connect to other nodes on the Internet.
FNP (Freenet Node Protocol) now uses TCP; the most nodes listen on ports
between 1024 and 65535. If your Internet Service Provider allows to
establish those connection to the Internet, then you can run Freenet.
If your ISP allows only connections to the Internet by standard services
like WWW, eMail, news, [...] over their proxyservers then you have bad luck.

Freenet works best on a fast computer with a fast Internet connection;
on a fixed IP address and a open TCP port (other nodes tries to contact
your node on this port) and when you run Freenet all the time.

If you can run Freenet, then there's no limit for information,
no possibility to censor something.

Freenet is beta software. It's possible that Freenet works better/
over more connection types (like over eMail) and other things
in a higher version. Try it out!

Hopefully with the problems that people had with 544, they shouldn't have 
any problem with the new 547 problems. Just rollback the build to the last 
known good build, 546 and you'll be good to go.

Now, if one didn't learn from the 544 problems and didn't backup their old 
version before upgrading, there's not much that can be done...

On  you can find all files.
(but you don't know which build is in which TGZ-file... :(  )

The Windows snapshot updater always gets the file freenet-latest.jar.
We know that it has been compiled on January 25th and it contains the
build 547. 
I suppose that people without a backup can extract the older build from
the TGZ-file made on the day before:
Extract the freenet.jar file from freenet-20030124.tgz in your
Freenet program directory. I bet that you'll have now build 546.

Should fred be able to find a native library for fec (and if so where)?

Fred uses a own library. If you want to use a fast platform specific
native implementation, then you have to use the Onion FEC library:

AFAIK you can find something on the Nubile-freesite, but it's perhaps outdated.
(I never used this native code)

I ran updatesnapshot about 2 hrs ago.

It's not a problem in fred builds, this Unable to find native library for fecX

 Hmm, still hadn't received a reply through a mailing list, so I'm answering
 by looking at the archive.

 Of course, all outgoing ports are open for an IP address that Freenet is
 bound to. The problem is that Freenet seems to listen for _incoming_
 connections on absolutely random ports. I recall reading somewhere that

The port is selected randomly when you configure freenet for the first time 
and can be found in freenet.conf or freenet.ini. IIRC, it's 'listenPort', but 
I'm not sure.

Yes, there's a line in the config file:
# The port to listen for incoming FNP (Freenet Node Protocol) connections on.

It's a randomly chosen port by the setup or by the generation of the config file.
This port is usually between 1024 and 65535, the node announce itself ONLY
with the current IP address and the chosen FNP port. (that's a node reference,
look in the seednodes.ref-file)

Other nodes only tries to connect on the FNP-port.
I see also a lot of listening ports between 1025 and 4500, but I don't know the
reason. (see the attached text file)
Client programs uses only 8481 for the Freenet Client Protocol (FCP),
 for the browser (-mainport) and 8891 for the distribution node (if 
not deactivated).

 this is a feature -Fred contacts another Freenet node with request for data
 then drops TCP connection and waits for incoming one from that node, so as
 to conserve TCP connections during long data searches and limit amount of
 traffic and resources required for maintenance of idle connections.

 This seems wise, but only in case if a single port (or a known range of
 ports) is used to handle such incoming connections. Basic security dictates
 that _all_ ports which aren't in definite use should be closed, and if this
 rule can't be followed with current Freenet operation, I'm afraid it could
 be a real security problem for all more or less secure environments.

This situation IS a security problem. But read Freenet's port usage in my
answer above. You only need to forward the FNP port to the Freenet node.

 That's why I've asked if a knows range of ports exists for Freenet. I know
 Java a little bit, but I don't think I'll brave the code myself to find out
 exact port ranges (or if they're defined at all). If they aren't defined,
 maybe it would be possible to consider to make such an option?

 With best regards,
 Victor Denisov.
