[freenet-support] annoying problem

2010-03-27 Thread Peter S
I have a weird and really annoying problem that goes as follows:
I had .7 installed when the folder got deleted by accident. I then installed
a new as darknet-- and all worked just fine, though two freenet
entries now existed in the service listing (WinXP)
Then a week or two ago it suddenly wouldn't connect.
I then properly un-installed and went for a new install but then it wouldn't
play along, saying freenet is already installed.
The faulty listing got removed with sc delete, yet the installer still
complains.
to continue, you must first uinstall your current version using the
previously created uninstaller .. well, that doesn't exist anymore ~ folder
deleted. Nothing Freenet exists anymore, so what the funk is it complaining
about?
How on earth am I to get Freenet back up and running?

[freenet-support] quick question

2008-06-08 Thread Peter S
Sure did. Works as I reckoned, but it then also means that the 'safe peers'
part of it is slightly impaired, as you HAVE to do node-ref exchanges to the
'inside', with people you've probably only talked briefly with, to get the
full Freenet working. And I guess the 'auto-update' feature only works
through there.

[freenet-support] quick question

2008-06-08 Thread Peter S
Just a simple question; 10 peers, none using opennet, and all interconnected
with each node having the other 9 in their trusted peers list .. will they
be able to access the 'actual freenet', or is this just a small private and
closed circle, with only the content they publish inside that circle
available?
If 10 peers in a closed loop as described *can* access the freenet, I just
don't understand HOW that's possible without talking to other nodes in an
opennet fashion and somewhat compromising the closed loop.

2008/6/8 [EMAIL PROTECTED] [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 If these ten nodes are only interconnected with themselves they -of
 course- have no access to the larger network and therefore form a small
 private, albeit darknet, network.
 If one of the nodes is connected to the global darknet, then the ten
 nodes have access to the global darknet but routing might be impaired as
 the other nine nodes will not connect to the darknet.

 Opennet is a completely different story as nodes are seeded by seednodes
 (therefore private networks are possible if the nodes don't access the
 seednodes, but by default opennet nodes ask seednodes).
 Also opennet nodes do swap informations about their peers, so nodes
 without knowledge of other nodes might come across new noderefs and
 connect to previously unknown nodes to enhance connectivity.

 Hope this helped

  If 10 peers in a closed loop as described /can/ access the freenet, I
  just don't understand HOW that's possible without talking to other
  nodes in an opennet fashion and somewhat compromising the closed loop.

[freenet-support] secure noderef exchange

2008-05-25 Thread Peter S
There's a couple of guides around on how to exchange noderef's securely, but
IMHO they all seem a bit circumstantial (or involve a third-part to hand you
digital ID's) .. so I was thinking; A and B are friends from the east- and
west-end of the country, so physical exchange via. USB stick or the likes is
not an option.
What they then do is start up their node in open mode, create a freemail, IM
each other thier freemail adresses .. "friendA at twofriends"(.freemail is
obvious and so left out of thier IM to disguise what it actually is) or A
gives B, and B can then reply to A's mail and thereby exchange their node
ref's through freemail.
Is this a feasible method, and equally secure as the more circumstantial
methods of exchanging ref's?
At one point I was left with the impression, that you can only freemail
someone with whom you have made a ref-exchange ... but this can't be he
case!?
