Seee bug 71835 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71835 .

The fix is to uncomment this line:

Defaults:%wheel !env_reset

and Freenet will run. This may not be the best answer though.

You must be a Gentoo user like me. Look in /etc/conf.d/freenet.

Actually it should be rubber-hose cryptanalysis

from http://catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/R/rubber-hose-cryptanalysis.html:

The technique of breaking a code or cipher by finding someone who has
the key and applying a rubber hose vigorously and repeatedly to the
soles of that luckless person's feet until the key is discovered.
Shorthand for any method of coercion: the originator of the term drily
noted that it ?can take a surprisingly short time and is quite
computationally inexpensive? relative to other cryptanalysis methods.

Back up you old configuration file, (optionally, but recommended also
delete the original) and use java -jar freenet.jar --config to
regenerate it. It'll generate a new config file with all the defaults
(be sure to chose the the same listenPort and datastore size as before).

(If you have customer settings in you old freenet.conf file that aren't
the default, you'll need to re-add them)

 [EMAIL PROTECTED] writes

 For a long time I've received what looks like SYN floods and SMURF
 attacks to my port associated with Freenet.  I've assumed that it's a
 fault of my firewall or PC, but what's weird is that the port of the
 offending IP increments.  I thought that the port that Freenet uses
 was fixed being that it was defined in the .conf file.

 Excuse my display of ignorance, but could someone please explain why
 the far ends port would need to change?

 Example

 Time: 05/31/2004, 04:21:52
 Message: Smurf
 Source: 133.205.255.225, 1905

 Time: 05/31/2004, 04:25:38
 Message: Smurf
 Source: 133.205.255.225, 2600

 Etc.

 Most likely this is an attempt by a Freenet node on 133.205.255.225 to
 connect to your Freenet external port, which is fixed, but is being
 prevented by your firewall.  It tries again and chooses the next
 available source port.  It has to use a new source port so it can tell
 the difference between the present connection and previous ones, should
 a packet return. The return packet will be from your Freenet fixed port,
 and to the arbitrary source port on the remote machine, 133.205.255.225.
 This is normal.  Can you tell your firewall to ignore connections to
 your Freenet port?  I think it may well be identifying Freenet packets
 as smurf attacks - what does anyone else think?

If this is from a SOHO broadband router - especially a D-Link router,
they should likely be disregarded, as the DoS detection in there doesn't
usually work and it KNOWN to be broken in D-Link's firmware.

There was a version of Freenet, 5023 IIRC, that accidently DID launch a
sort of syn flood as it would try to reconnect relentlessly.

In general, most SOHO router simply cannot handle the kind of traffic
Freenet generates, and it confuses it with a DoS attack.

For me it seems as Fred is too fail-fast. It may try for a few more

browser or a FCP app) is no good idea IMHO.


 Maybe so. But maybe the problem is more fundamental.


 I suspect this is the case.  The RNF is coming back much too quickly
for the network to have been searched to the limit, unless everyone
running FN has miraculously converted to a T3.

 As an experiment, I cut and pasted some not-found keys into FUQID.
Its log file says that it is trying 25 HTL, 30 HTL, and 35 HTL, and not
finding anything, but it seems to be working much too quickly.

 I'm a Win2K transient node on dialup.

 -vinyl1


The HTL in Freenet is currently capped at 10, so if you inserts anything
higher, it'll automatically be cut down to 10. The failure table on your
node will then see this request failed at HTL=10 and so will immediately
return a DNF.

Please provide reference to a good glossary.

I tried it (in a sandbox Linux account, which is absoltely the minimum
precaution anyone should take if running code downloaded from an
untrusted anonymous source) and it seems to work pretty nicely.


Is sandbox just Linux term or does it have broader application?


A sandbox is a area of limited functionality where one can control a 
programs behavior. Think of it more like a jail. Java applets (web 
applets, not Freenet) run a in sandbox. This way, if the program is 
malicious (or badly written), it can't do any damage outside the 
sandbox (in theory, anyway). If a Java applet tries to do something 
not allowed by the security policy (write a file, open a network 
connection, change the security policy, etc), Java will raise an 
exception. Note the ActiveX controls do NOT run in a sandbox.

For Linux, there was a project, Subterfugue, which could create a 
sandbox for a program, but its not currently maintained. There is also 
User-mode Linux (UML), which lets you run Linux in Linux - everything 
run the the UML environment is trapped and can't do any damage outside 
its environment.

Its not just you, I've been running Freenet for months on a permanent
node, and I'm getting the same thing lately. Either is not being
inserted, inserts are broken, or routing is broken (or most likely, all
3 ! ). (Using unstable 6338 here, BTW)
Its being tweaked, so well see what happened next version :)
