[freenet-support] New to Freenet. Need help

2015-01-18 Thread Paul Kruger
I am new to Freenet.  Installed okay and have download set up but after 
downloading a few files I cannot find them.


It says they are downloaded to temporary folder but I look in /temp and 
it has a ton of files, none of which seem to be the files I downloaded.


There seems to be no button in Freenet to click to view downloaded files 
and nothing to tell me where to find them.


I also not a few other options that never seem to work.  For instance 
changing the priority for downloads does not function. I select a higher 
priority and click to set but it just changes back to low every time.


The main issue for me is where are the files I just downloaded located?

Thanks.

Re: [freenet-support] fred and ipv6

2010-06-23 Thread Paul Landers
Well, interestingly enough after tearing down the tunnel, waiting 24
hours and rebuilding the tunnel Fred starts up just fine with ipv6.
There's even a connection attempt to another ipv6 node.

My node loses all opennet connections every few hours.  A restart fixes it
but it reoccurs.  I'm not sure if this is related, but my freenet-latest.log
contains very many of these 2 entries:

Removing ack request twice? Null on 31201 from x.x.x.x

Probably a bug: please report: 1 peers forcibly disconnected due to not
acknowledging packets.

1 of your peers are having severe problems (not acknowledging packets
even after 10 minutes). This is probably due to a bug in the code.
Please report it to us at the bug tracker at
https://bugs.freenetproject.org/ or to the support mailing list

[freenet-support] too old and can't update

This has been the situation all day and well into tonight.  It seems

I see there is a build 10014 which does have it's .sha1 file, but I 
don't know why the update process isn't trying that one.

[freenet-support] Freenet Not Listening For Connections After Starting

2005-11-19 Thread Paul M.
  A few days ago freenet stopped working on my FC1 machine. From the
looks of a netstat it never starts listening for connections on
FNP,FCP, or the distro port. This remains true even after being let
"run" for a little over a day.
  I've tried a partial (kept store and config file) and full reinstall
of freenet without any luck. I would revert to an older version if I
had a copy of a recent one. In all attempts I ran the update script
before trying.
I've attached the output of running it at debug and the config file.
There are no relevant system logs.

[freenet-support] Re: OSX builds of freenet

2005-09-30 Thread Paul
Can we get this Mac OS X native jbigi library incorporated in to 
future Freenet releases?

I've been running Freenet on Mac OS X for about two years now. It 
usually runs for 2 to 7 days before it grinds to a halt with either 
an out of memory error or some kind of error in the "abstractor loop".

Having better performance while Freenet is up would be great. Fixing 
the above errors would also be nice.

 I added a couple case statements to NativeBigInteger.java, similar to those
 suggested by Josh Watzman earlier this month. I think his diff also added
 support for loading an external jbigi library without having to rebuild the
 freenet-ext.jar file. My changes only work if the library is put 
into the jar.

 I'm *assuming* that his code changes result in a requested library name
 of libjbigi-osx-none.jnilib. I don't know for sure, since I found his diff
 after I had already made my changes.

 I used the jbigi source from i2p since the build scripts for it had already
 been modified to support OSX. The resulting file was libjbigi.jnilib, which
 just needed to be renamed to libjbigi-osx-none.jnilib and inserted into
 freenet-ext.jar.

 The i2p_0_6_0_6 source builds the jbigi library static, so I'm hoping that
 it will run fine on a Mac that doesn't have gmp installed. Someone else
 said they had managed to build the library on the Mac, but their library was
 dynamic and would only run on a Mac with gmp already installed (or
 something to that effect.)

 After the osx jbigi library is inserted in to the freenet-ext.jar, I dropped
 that into the lib folder of the current stable source and built the project
 using ant.

 I won't discuss how many wrong turns I made on the way

 And the result on starting freenet...

Re: [freenet-support] new ip (was can't listen on local interfaces..)

2005-02-05 Thread Paul Forgey
What I am really doing is moving an existing, somewhat established node 
from one machine to another more capable one.  I copied over the store 
and all node data with it.

However, I now noticing an inability to retrieve data that isn't already 
in my store (or so it seems).

Are other nodes being suspicious because my node info is the same but 
the ip is different?  If this is an issue, can I continue on with my 
established store but re-do my node info?  And what files do I need to 
delete for that to happen?

Thanks..

they then control a majority of the nodes anyway).

RE: [freenet-support] datastore size

2004-08-14 Thread Paul Schauble
There should be a relationship between bandwidth and store size. At a guess,
it's exponential, doubling the bandwidth can support a store 4 times larger.

Estimating this relationship would be valuable to the people running nodes.

Hmmm. Am I wrong to think there probably is an optimal store size for
each node?

My thinking is that as the store grows, the node draws more requests,
which at some point will exceed the node's ability to service them all
in a timely manner due to resource limits (probably bandwidth).

As the store grows larger, even more requests come in, causing the node
to service a shrinking proportion of the total number of requests
directed towards it, which has a negative impact on the network.

  Can it hurt the network if I make my datastore too big?

 short answer: No!

 long answer: The store fills up when your node serves requests from
others
 and you (the user). If a requested key is already in the store, your
node
 just sends this and makes no request on his own for that. When the
store
 is full, the least recently used key(s) is/are purged to make room. A
 bigger store means more keys are available, so chances to find
requested
 keys in the store increase, this is _GOOD_ for the network.

That's quadratic, not exponential. The store size would be scaling 
with the square of the bandwidth, not 2 to the power of something 
proportional to the bandwidth.

Did you run the port scan locally? If it was a remote probe (such as 
results from going to any of those security-related Web sites that 
probes your machine and reports the results on a Web form), your 
firewall probably stopped it, and even if not, I don't think Freenet 
by default allows remote connections to its port anyway.

 Fuck that noise. If you can support Linux binary compatibility (try

 In other words, you were reprimanded at work for stirring up shit from an

 If you weren't yet, you will be.  I've been in a similar position, though
 not quite exactly the same, I made the same mistake, using a uniform email
 address in a civilian conversation, and I've felt the heat for it.
 
 On the one hand, I sympathize with you.  Why would Anonymous issue an
 apology?  Because even Anonymous can and perhaps will be identified via
 linguistic analysis, though I've done my best to pervert this message in
 such a manner that it cannot be connected with its author.  On the other
 hand, I must assert that whomever initiated or will initiate the stink, it
 didn't start or won't start with me.  Although, believe me, I have
 considered it since your first post to this list from an official address,
 and long before the current thread was borne.
 
 You go on to state

 I would ask Who is 'you all'? and I would posit that the response is not
 'correct.'  (I would also insert a 'you people' and 'H Perot' reference,
 but that would be controversial and too demonstrable of knowledge of U.S.
 politics, no?)
 
 Freenet is comprised of a wide variety of users.  Many of those users whom
 have been and continue to remain early adopters of Freenet are those same
 people what were and continue to be early adopters of other emerging
 technologies.  They're in it for the tech, they're in it for the ideals,
 they're in it to support the ability of oppressed citizenries (I must
 wonder if that now applies to you in the States?) to have the continued
 freedom to express their ideas.  And for fuck's sakes, some of them are
 just in it for the challenge of programming something new in Java.
 
 More to a point, there are Freenet node operators what have no idea that
 they may end up storing or transmitting illicit material.  There are
 Freenet node operators what have been convinced by acquaintances to try out
 a new software program, one which is at the bleeding edge of networking,
 one which hopes to offer anonymity to its users, and what have installed
 Freenet to this very end.  There are Freenet node operators what run a node
 but don't make any use of its existance.  There are Freenet node operators
 what run a node simply because they have a machine with a nice linkup and a
 friend what asked a favor of them.
 
 You made a statement

Let me see if I can get caught up on whats gone on since I left work.
First I should probably clear this up.  I am not a lawyer.  I work at
the U.S. Attoreny's Office yes; but, only as a clerk.
So nothing I say is legal advice, the postion of the DOJ, to be

Someone asked if attempting to block KP would eliminate intent.  This
question would be up to the jury.  While you would probably need 100%
blocking to win in a civial trial.  This would be much more likely to
satisfy a criminal jury.
  
Someone else pointed out that ISPs are not officaly common carriers. 
This is of course correct.  But the hybrid nature of what they do
gives them a sort of grey status.  So while no responsable for what
goes on across their networks in general.  They are responsable if a
problem is brought to their attention and they fail to act.
That person also used the example of an employ abuseing a company computer.
In that case the company isn't criminaly responsable beacuse they
didn't know what the employ was useing the computer for.  You can not
be held responsable for something you fail to forsee and prevent.  If
the company had known what he was useing the computer for and failed
to act then they can be held responsable.  Your intent can only be
establashed by your actions and knowledge.  The company had no
knowdedge of what you were doing.

'IANAL (BIKAF), but I would expect that for ignorance to be willful it
can't be a side-effect of a goal, it must be a goal in itself.  There 
are plenty of reasons why someone might want to use Freenet other than
obtaining illegal content.'
  
That is very true.  Other wise we could hold people responsable for
virus on their computer.  You can not arrest someone for what they
didn't know and thus couldn't see.  But you can for something they did
know but chose to ignore.  You know that your node is transmitting bad
stuff and its doing so by your choice to activate it, ignoreing it
simply beacuse you can't see it is not a defense.
  

Let me put it this way.
When you all fire up your nodes you know there is a very strong
likelyhood that it will end up houseing and transmiting illegal
material, correct?
So you know your computer will be doing something illegal and yet
choose to do it anyway simply because you can not see it.  That is
willful blindness and is not a defense that will stand up in court.

  Umm, measures such as..? I don't see how you can defend against the

 Well, first of all the elementary stuff. No other services on the
 same machine. You don't want your ftp server compromised because
 of a flaw in mailman, or even sendmail, so put that stuff elsewhere.
 Heavy firewalling. IDS. No compiler installed; most hacks begin
 with a compilation. No unnecessary script interpreters; an ftp
 server can live very well (and much longer) without PHP, python,
 perl, java, whathaveyou. A super-lean kernel. A permanently up
 to date system.
 
 Then the more tedious stuff. Remote syslog. Remote md5sums of every
 file on the machine, regularly checked. A draconic password policy.
 Why not a read-only server running from a CD-ROM?
 
 And then comes the really difficult part, physical security. A
 gang of angry and hungry dobbermans in the outer perimeter, cobras
 in the server room, tarantulas inside the server itself.
 
 As a side-dish, network security. If your DNS can be compromised,
 nobody needs to touch your ftp server before they can serve their
 own files from your machine. Arp. There is really no way to
 ensure that a visitor to your ftp server won't end up elsewhere,
 but an unpredictable control mechanism can let you know if that
 happens and mitigate the damage.
 
  There is one thing though... I think the CVS announcement mails are
  generated on the client side. They should be generated on the server
  side. Anyone know how to do this?
 
 What you mean by CVS announcements?

OTOH woulden't the open proxy be an isp? The proxy is really just a
router between two networks. The networks don't need to have the same
lower level protocalls... The other differene would be that no one is
paying him for the service. But then comes in the free ISPs of the dot
com era. Given the political climent in the US and the American Civil
Liberities Union being overwhelmed with its currnet case load.not
the best time.

Another option would be to provide a list on a public website stating
what ip address requested a given key (and time ofcorse). Tacking a
disclamer at the bottom of all pages with a warning about logging and
being responsible for inaproate content. And finaly making it obvious
that you will block any keys that the police/lawyers request blocked.
I don't piticularly like this option, but it seems the safest. I doubt
any of us could afford to defend ourselves agenst even a cupple

 are well-established members of the middle or higher
 middle class (the real upper class is above suspicion,
 so it doesn't get caught). The class that uses illegal
 content on freenet is the very class that proclaims to
 be against it. Perhaps mirrornet would be a better

Java vs C++ Shootout Revisited
June 15, 2004

Summary
I was sick of hearing people say Java was slow, says Keith Lea,
so I took the benchmark code for C++ and Java from the now outdated
Great Computer Language Shootout (Fall 2001) and ran the tests
myself. Lea's results three years on? Java, he finds, is
significantly faster than optimized C++ in many cases.

 though the browser is on another machine...
 
 I was planning to make a permanent node, but I don't run it much
 anymore, because my brother games (so he needs high bandwidth and low
 latency), and Freenet is still the most costly service I run on that
 thing (in terms of CPU, bandwidth, etc.)
 
 I know it's been mentioned before, but I'll state for the record that I
 think Java was a bad choice.  Rather than start a new flame war, I'd
 like to go read up on why it was chosen (any archives I should look at?).
 
 For the record, I have never, ever seen a java program load quickly, run
 even tolerably fast for anything beyond the most basic things, and I've
 never seen an open source implementation of Java work firsthand.  I
 don't like the syntax, but that's a personal issue -- I'd love to be
 proven wrong on this.

[freenet-support] Interesting news posting in alt.internet.p2p

2004-07-02 Thread Paul Derbyshire
http://groups.google.com/groups?q=freetellahl=enlr=ie=UTF-
8c2coff=1safe=offselm=Xns951A1E8DA9B51neo1061hotmailcom%4066.185.95
.104rnum=2

It's a very, very, very bloody long posting, and the really relevant-
to-you stuff is only near the bottom, but there's a proposal for a 
file-sharing-and-searching-over-Freenet system, freetella, 
basically gnutella + freenet as I understand it. The reputation 
management stuff is interesting (but full of *#! math!) in 
particular, as well as the suggestion that Frost could form part of 
the back end of this thing too. The reputation management thing may 
be more interesting than Freetella proper, though, because it seems 
to offer what are described as, and I can't disprove it, foolproof 
ways to a) make any indexing system based on volunteer contributions 
to an index difficult to spam or flood or otherwise pollute based on 
reputation management -- I especially like the notion of contributer 
identities being in the key strings for their submissions so if they 
wind up in really bad repute clients can simply not retrieve such 
keys at all, thus allowing pollution to wither and die instead of 
persisting, but being ignored, but continuing to burden clients 
making sheer volume denial of service attacks of such publicly-
annotatable indices possible. Such DoS tricks will run up against a 
brick wall of clients not retrieving or propagating the pollution at 
all, limiting the damage to one node and its immediate environs. It's 
like they can dump toxic waste but it won't get into the groundwater. 
The math stuff has to do with preventing a spammer cheating the 
reputation management system by making multiple IDs that all vote 
each other up. It's tricky (Markov chains, what the [EMAIL PROTECTED] are Markov 
chains for Pete's sake?) and something is an exercise left to the 
reader but he (she?) seems to have found a way to make self-votes, 
even indirect ones, cancel out somehow. Also, there's no central 
stuff mentioned, which would have cast immediate doubt on the whole 
thing. No central reputation management, the reputation management 
reputation manages its own internal votes as well as whatever larger 
purpose it serves, no centralized anything as near as I can tell. No 
vulnerabilities. No dependence on non-Freenet services at all that I 
can see, aside from the inevitable loopback spaghetti networking 
internal to the node machines involved in everything Freenet, the 
basic internet protocols themselves, and DNS. Even that might be 
jettisoned when static IPs are used throughout (IPv6 might make 
dynamic IPs a bad memory. In a pig's eye.)

There's some sort of wacko anti-RIAA stuff in the article too, 
including an I don't hate the RIAA, they're just a favorite whipping 
boy sort of disclaimer right after a lengthy discussion of how to 
completely thwart the RIAA *without* freenet or heavy use of 
encryption. Whether we *should* thwart the RIAA is left as an 
exercise for the reader's consicence, I guess. The clever scheme 
involves breaking bootleg files up into chunks to small they are 
either unintelligible in isolation or fall under fair use, which need 
not even be encrypted though he seems to recommend some crypto, and 
are combined into the complete file (and if necessary decrypted) by 
someone who wants the file. The trick is for no host to offer more 
than one fragment so there's nothing but an unintelligible, 
suggestively named (author's own words more or less) or a fair-use 
quotation being shared, i.e. no probable cause for searching your cpu 
and finding the rest of the file or even supposing you knew what 
others were doing with the file. I'm not totally sure they wouldn't 
find some way to legislate such a thing out of the loophole 
described, though. In fact, they probably would. There's also some 
stuff about ISPs relaxing AUPs, freedom of speech, world peace, and 
so on. Says he's a fellow canadian -- probably a canuck that voted 
NDP on Monday and commutes regularly to an institute of higher 
learning then. And before that a long long list of suggestions for 
improving gnutella most of them seriously technical. I think he also 
took potshots at bill gates, shareaza, and some other prominent 
targets besides the RIAA. Oh, and the FBI and other law enforcement 
agencies of questionable trustworthiness. (Why not mention CSIS?)

Oh and he dares them to prosecute him under the DMCA for posting it. 
Then he thumbs his nose at the yankee gestapo and that's where he 
announces his canadianness. Hope he hasn't any travel plans to like 
Florida or Hawaii in the near future then. :)

Anyway the freenet-related stuff at the bottom looks interesting. I 
think the reputation stuff may be quite generalizable for a lot of 
other stuff. There's occasionally talk of how to influence unwanted 
stuff into expiring from the freenet here -- reputation management 
that blacklists keys (and bad blacklisters) in principle lets one 
stop their machine ever retrieving

  At about noon today I checked and data transferred was many megs and
  messages were at about 15,000 on two most active connections.  Checked mail
  and came back about an hour later to find that SETI had transmitted results
  and was not maximized any longer.  Then I realized that system seemed
  inactive.  ISP had closed connection and I had some difficulty getting
  anything to respond.  Finally after right click on rabbit in tray, I was
  able to open popup window and stopped freenet.  Few things started to show
  apparent activity and I could then maximize SETI and it had completed about
  6% of a job after sending and bringing down a new job.
 
  I then reconnected and restarted freenet and function seemed to return.  I
  checked the log and it showed a very long segment of failures.  (Log was at
  about 2.5 megs.)  Errors continued abundantly as I expected since contact
  had been lost from other nodes for some time.  Shut down.  (To do other
  work.)  About three hours later I tried to restart, but experience little
  success.  Log hung when I tried to work back through the log (problem
  here?).  Finally shut down OS and restarted.
 
  The apparent hang from shut down of ISP connection I had not observed
  before (not to say that I actually know it never did).  Is this common?
  Will freenet do this when only it is producing high CPU usage or could it
  be because two programs were trying to work at maximum level (SETI 
  freenet)?  Should freenet not detect loss of internet connection and not go
  blindly on with unsuccessful high usage?  I would think that when finally
  operating this should not be allowed to happen as ISP closure would
  certainly not be uncommon with large numbers of nodes running (even if it
  only happens with multiple high demands on CPU).
 
  Recently checked thread usage and seems seldom to go beyond 700 even when
  system very busy.

 I doubt that Ian would agree with all this talk of censorship(euphemized as 
 blacklisting).
 So, we don't like Janet Jackson's breast nor Howard Stern's mouth.  Don't look.  
 Don't listen.

Sigh, another misunderstanding. There's no censorship involved here 
except individuals choosing not to retrieve keys based on their being 
known to be the keys of content of a kind they personally don't like. 
By not retrieving the keys they save bandwidth and also can avoid 
encouraging the spread of content they don't approve of. But their 
node will not treat the keys any differently, only the frontend 
software they are using to retrieve and view freesites, and also 
there would be no centralised control involved that could be abused.

 i suppose the heavy cpu usage arises because the node tries to contact all nodes it 
 knows. this of course won't work as it is not connected to the internet. a solution 
 would be to delete the routing table so it 
 doesn't even know of other nodes and it cannot try to contact them which will result 
 in a nice, fast booting and completely isolated local node for your tests:
 
 - stop the freenet node
 - cd into the freenet directory
 - delete the files: ls* ngrt* rt* seednodes.ref
 - start the node
 
 HTH
 
 if you want to re-integrate the node again download the seednodes.ref (or the .bz'ed 
 version) from http://freenetprogect.org/snapshots/
 dunno, but it might be necessary to delete ls* rt* ngrt* again for the node to 
 reseed itself. then again maybe it will reseed automatically from the seednodes file 
 if it has too few noderefs.

An alternative would be to hide the files from Freenet, rather than 
delete them, and restore them to re-integrate the node. Moving them 
should do it, and renaming them might (especially changing their 
extensions by adding .bak might).

Freenet stable build 5078 is now available. The snapshots have been
updated. All stable branch users should upgrade ASAP.

Changelog:
* Make 5077 mandatory. This is a fairly significant change. 5077 made
  huge changes, including some fundamental changes to how freenet
  routes (bidirectional routing - all connected nodes may be routed to);
  for the network to work effectively, we need the whole of stable to be
  running more or less the same code.
* Lots of bugfixes.
* New, cleverer startup script for unix-like systems.

[freenet-support] Minor installer warts

2004-01-17 Thread Paul Derbyshire
Got around to updating to 5061. Installer wart is as follows: when it 
reaches its own executable it pops up something I thought had gone 
the way of the dodo (and MS-DOS): abort, retry, ignore. Abort is 
rather drastic, and retry can't possibly work, so you have to ignore. 
The installer should automatically skip itself.

This is easily worked around but could confuse some new users and 
shows lack of polish. Normally installer problems are automatically 
serious as the lack of polish is present from the user's first 
impression with the software, but in this case it only will occur the 
2nd and subsequent times the installer is run. :)

This therefore only rates a 1 on the 1 to 5 Sanjay-Tarantino scale of 
bug severity (bugs that bring down the host operating system rating a 
5, of course).

Or does it? If the installer itself needs updating there could be a 
problem. To make the installer updatable, the installer needs to 
chain. The algorithm in widest use is for the installer to have two 
stages: the first fetches the second from a fixed location, then 
launches this and quits. The second installs everything else 
including a fresh version of the first if necessary. Since the first 
has quit, the second can overwrite it. When the first overwrites the 
second it succeeds since the second hasn't run yet. :)

On a related note, the installer seems unable to automate shutting 
down the node so it can overwrite with new files, even though it has 
no problem starting it back up again after. Requiring user 
intervention at this stage seems unnecessary and is another potential 
source of error that can easily be eliminated. Many web-updatable 
apps I've used take already-running instances in stride, and more 
than a few even update themselves automatically or with only a 
there's a newer version available. Download and install? Yes, 
Cancel dialog. My current operating system is one of them. :)
This doesn't really rate as a bug at all, but it is one more rough 
edge in the installer that can be smoothed over. (Again, it won't 
show up the very first time you run the web updater, so it doesn't 
give a bad first impression, reducing its already-cosmetic priority.)

[freenet-support] Odd failure(?) mode, and updating.

2004-01-16 Thread Paul Derbyshire
You may remember me as the one who had problems with fproxy that 
proved to be brain-dead IE defaults. Turns out fproxy and my node are 
working fine, and the node gets around 1 request a second suggesting 
it's integrating way better than the freesite of evil keeps bitching 
about. :)

Reachability of stuff browsed through the interface seems to improve 
as it gels into the network.

Then this AM there was an incident, which happened to catch me in 
front of the keyboard. It was hard not to notice, since the whole 
system became largely unresponsive. For whatever reason, my node had 
spawned over 5000 new threads in a matter of seconds and bloated to 
take up much more RAM and most of the CPU, forcing me to restart the 
service from the tray menu. Hopefully enough is cached between 
sessions that this won't seriously compromise the node's integration.

I have a number of new questions, none of which the FAQ will answer.
1. What caused this? I've heard of some versions grabbing a lot of 
system resources when inserting certain kinds of keys locally through 
FCP, but not spontaneously or as a result of requests. Can it happen 
when some kinds of keys are inserted by just propagating to your 
node? Was it trying to upload and store a large file, maybe one that 
came in 5000 asynchronous fragments? Pathological behavior that 
cripples the host system until the node is restarted manually, 
possibly then hurting the network by interrupting what would have 
been an important task for others or by setting back the integration 
clock on your node is, IMO, bad. Thread, CPU, and memory use may 
need to be throttleable as bandwidth currently is. (The same applies 
double to the gnutella client I run, though, which frequently bloats 
up to 2000 threads and uses way more ram than the freenet node under 
normal circumstances -- i.e. normal for the node AND the gnutella 
client. :))
2. Is this already addressed by the update?
3. How do you install the update, short of opening Explorer and 
painstakingly navigating your way to the Freenet install directory 
under Program Files to run the updater? Update is a logical item for 
the tray menu on Win32, but it's not there; failing that it's a 
logical button for the configure tool's main tab, but it's not there 
either. [While on the subject, the configure tool needs a cooler name 
and a cross-platform rather than MFC implementation. I suggest a 
lightweight C++/GTK app and a name of FreeConfigurator. :)]
4. My machine seems to get a new IP address every so often, 
automagically, and not just after a reboot. How well will the node 
handle that?:
  a. Will it start screwing up if the IP changes mid-session and have 
to be manually restarted? How to detect this or better yet, automate 
it? Short of restarting it on a fixed schedule, which would probably 
be bad. Or will it discover the new ip for itself? Perhaps as long as 
it works OK without uncommenting and changing the ipAddress line in 
freenet.ini it will cope automatically?
  b. How bad an effect on the network will the dynamic IP have, 
especially if it requires periodic node restarts beyond the usual 
Windows had a cerebral embolism in its atrophied and still largely 
16-bit brain; time to reboot again, sigh situations?
I'd rather avoid the dyndns.org service that I was shocked to find 
pimped in a comment in the configuration file. Shocked, because of 
this from its Click-through Terms of Service Of The Week(tm by 
Microsoft who pioneered the practise):

The Member will not use the Service for illegal software, junk
pornography, spamming or any use of distribution lists to any person
who has not given specific permission to be included in such a
process.  The Member agrees not to transmit through the service any
unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful,
vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or
nature...The Member further agrees not to transmit any material that
encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give
rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local,
state, national, or international law or regulation.

This seems implacably hostile to using dyndns to point to a freenet 
node! By its nature a freenet node makes it difficult but not 
impossible for its operator to know what is being transmitted 
through the service, and impossible for the operator to control it. 
Of course, it's hard to prove that junk pornography (and just how 
in the hell is that defined, and why does dyndns take it upon itself 
to dictate sexual mores like it was some 19th century church?) and so 
on is really in your store, but the node operator is put in an 
uncomfortable position. If they truly honor the above agreement 
rather than ignoring it, they must use all means at their disposal to 
at least try to determine and control what flows through their node 
and resides in it! 

[freenet-support] New node not working...500 server error from 127.0.0.1:8888.

2004-01-15 Thread Paul Derbyshire
Got the windows webinstall executable and ran it less than 2 hours 
ago. Node may or may not be running ok, but fproxy is definitely on 
the blink. Looked at (without altering) the options, and nothing is 
obviously bad, such as say fproxy being turned off.

Symptom:

Server Error
The following error occurred:
Bad URL 


--
--
Please contact the administrator. 

at 127.0.0.1: in ie 6.x. I know my ISP (cable) has some sort of 
wonky caching of web pages, as evidenced by intermittent random 500-
series errors I never got on dial-up and the odd out-of-date page 
coming up but not when I hit refresh. But their webcache shouldn't 
affect loopback, should it?

Which suggests maybe a NAT router/firewall issue, save that I don't 
have any real reason to believe I even have one. The installer 
brought a cable modem of the Toshiba brand, and that's it. If it has 
a built-in NAT router it's less than obvious how to configure it in 
the manner the FAQ suggests, given that the sole UI the device 
provides is about half a dozen blinking lights. Of course, there's 
the network status icon in the systray...

It reveals an IP address of 24.192.41.163, and since nothing is 
firewalling external connections on weird ports as evidenced by being 
able to play Quake over this connection, maybe nothing else needs be 
configured save to manually put this in the freenet.ini. That, and 
change it every week, since it doesn't seem to be stable on longer 
timescales, even without a reboot.

Tried that and no go. So I subscribe reluctantly to Yet Another 
Mailing List and lo! and behold,

Mailing list subscription confirmation notice for mailing list 
Support

We have received a request from 66.185.84.80 for subscription...

66.185.what?! That's not the IP Windows is reporting. Some kind of 
NAT is going on, then. (Weirdly, this hasn't stopped people being 
able to connect to a Quake server if I host one and tell them the 
24.somethingorother IP...maybe separate addresses for incoming and 
outgoing data?)

Anyway, something needs to be done here and I'm afraid I don't know 
what. Putting the 66.whatever address in the freenet.ini didn't do 
beans, at least on its own, and communicating some kind of port 
forwarding information to this cable modem seems impossible, unless 
it can be done either by
a) staring at the blinking lights until the modem is hypnotised, then 
using a post-hypnotic suggestion that a port be forwarded or
b) somehow launching the configuration tool for the modem driver 
despite the minor niggling problem of this tool's not existing and 
the driver's also not existing, and then finding the port 
forwarding tab, which presumably also doesn't exist, and entering 
some numbers and mumblety-peg in it before clicking the (nonexistent, 
no doubt) ok button.
Any suggestions?

While we're at it, two niggling issues:
1. Once you've accessed the right click menu on the freenet tray 
icon, the tooltip status indication can no longer be made to present 
itself by any amount of mouse hovering -- I think it ran out of fuel 
and crashed into the little bunny rabbit making an unholy mess before 
I gave up. :)
2. The Web site has a couple minor issues, and a major one, which is 
that at the bottom of the tools page the link titled here for 
contributing ideas is a 
big fat 404. Finding and identifying the minor issues is left as an 
exercise for 
the reader.

I also want to note here that the listserv's confirmation URLs are 
too long for 
at least one popular mail client to handle correctly, forcing the 
manual copy 
and paste method that nobody likes. In future, please send 
confirmation URLs that are no longer than 95 characters. I doubt the 
one I got (103 characters) honestly needed to be *quite* that long 
and still do its job. :)

 I see the installation of Freenet and the configuration of Freenet to
 be an area that needs serious attention.
 First, I use Freenet on a Mac, but Mac OS X is not shown anymore as a
 compatible OS on the Freenet web site download page. It used to be
 there, but not anymore. I know to use the Linux download and
 instructions, but the only reason I know that is because the web site
 used to state this. A new user will likely not realize this.
 Second, the install process needs to be easier. Yes, installing
 Freenet is as simple as copying over a handful of files, but a
 single-click install program is very nice. The Mac .pkg format is
 simple and effective, and it allows scripts to be included and run
 during the installation process.
Care to volunteer? I don't have a Mac to develop a package on.
I had a feeling you might ask that. While I can program, I just do 
not have the time right now to learn the specifics of how to do this, 
and then do it. The time investment goes beyond doing this once. I'd 
have to do it for every single release. And at the rate they are 
coming these days, that's a huge amount of time.

 
 Third, configuring Freenet is a major pain. Right now, in order to
 copy over my few custom .conf file settings, I have to first fake out
 Freenet into thinking that it is running for the first time so it
 creates a new .conf file with default settings. Then I bring up both
 the new .conf file and the old one in a text editor, and go through
 each setting, line by line, an copy over my custom settings into then
 new .conf file.
Why can't you just copy over the old .conf file? Any settings that
haven't been overridden will be commented out and therefore the node
will use the default settings.
Problem with this is that I then have no idea what the new options 
are. I might want to, or need to, tweak the new options.

 
 If each new update of Freenet would be able to read in the last
 version's .conf file, add new options to it, that would be a good
 start.
There is an option to do this.
Yeah, but it uses the command line which is what I'd like to get away 
from completely. Command-line = very difficult usability

 
 An even better improvement would be a nice GUI tool to edit and
 maintain all of Freenet's configuration options.
We have thought about doing it via the web interface. We don't want
actual GUI code in the main Fred tree.
A web interface would be great and be very universal. Is this comming soon?

 
 Fourth, starting and stopping Freenet is a pain. I have to bring up
 the Terminal, and type in a command line to start and stop Freenet.
 This is extremely un-Mac-like and you will loose 99% of your
 potential users when they see that they HAVE to use the command line
 to get Freenet to run. A simple double-clickable icon is what people
 want.
Well, Mac users are probably 5% of our target market (linux about 30%
and the rest windows), probably. It would be nice to have a proper
package.
Linux and Mac OS X are, at the low-level, the same: UNIX  It's just 
that Apple has put a great set of API extensions on top of it to 
create the easiest to use OS available. So if usability improvements 
are made in a universal way that also works under Linux, then both 
the Mac users and Linux users would benefit. That's 35% of Freenet 
users.

Is there anything like Fink (http://sourceforge.net/projects/fink/) 
in the Linux world? With the addition of the GUI tool, Fink 
Commander, Fink is just usable on the Mac. If there was a compatible 
tool under Linux, you might be able to unify the Mac OS X and Linux 
Freenet packge.

Another usability suggestion to help Mac users: Mac OS X does not 
come with wget. So the update-freenet.sh script will not run. Mac 
OS X does include curl which I think is similar to wget. Any 
chance of having the update script use curl incase wget is not 
installed?

 
 All of these could easily be done on the Mac with an Applescript
 Studio type application. I've seen people write a really good GUI
 front-end to command line programs in a matter of days with
 Applescript Studio.
 Linux would also benefit from all of the above improvements.

 The first impression of Freenet is the install and configuration
 process. Right now this process gives a new user a distinctly
 negative impression of Freenet. This impression just gets worse when
 they run it for the first time and can't load any sites. But that's a
 whole other discussion...

[freenet-support] possible Freenet bug

I tried to use the sourceforge bug system linked off the freenet page, but
it said I didn't have enough permission, thus I'm mailing this list. I'm

There is a version 0.3.9.1 of Freenet that works for Windows ME.
Just go to the website below and download the FreenetJview and
FreenetSetup files.
The installation that follows is a snap even if you can't read Chinese.
Thanks for all the support.
