We don't know. :)
 

based on the peer data we've collected, we have seen more than 13k 
unique IP addresses around the world.

Speaking of which:
I am leaving Freenet running on my router, in the hopes that FProxy will
eventually start responding, and that when it does, it will eventually
run faster.
Would it be worthwhile to also run a transient node on my local machine,
instead of using FProxy on the router?  (There's only one switch between
them, and if I can't trust my own network hardware, what can I trust?)
How certain can I be that it will find the router as a (very close) peer
node?

I think you can run another node on you machine(not the router), give it 
only one ref which is your node on the router in its seednodes.ref file. 
That way you can do all the FCP work on ur local machine (hopefully it's 
safe).

As it seems it is used for the Distribution Pages (click on the link
Spread Freenet in the Web-Interface). This spreads a freenet-zip with
your personal seednodes. So not all people start with the same
seednodes. This should make the net better connected I think.
I have activated the distribution port and the allowHosts is the 
default, i.e. everyone. However, when I clicked Spread Freenet I got a 
blank page with only one line that says: Error. Any ideas?

If the port is firewalled it just means your Distribution pages can't be
accessed once they are created. It has nothing to do with the running of
your node.

[freenet-support] How to give out node reference?

2004-07-11 Thread Weiliang Zhang
I want to run a few nodes on my local machine and let them communication 
within the circle. The problem is how do I generated seednodes.ref files 
for these nodes? I tried using the 'node' file created by freenet, 
giving it to another node as the seednodes.ref, but that didn't seem to 
be working, maybe it's because of the missing fields for the estimator. 
Any ideas?

Counts of keys usually. Try the raw links...
If that's the case, the bars in the histograms would grow indefinitely?? 
There seems to be a maximum, when reached, the bars stop growing. That 
might be explaining why we are seeing de-specialisation? Shouldn't we 
use ratios instead?

They count different things. The former counts connections. The latter
counts requests.
To my guess, requests are inserts/retrievals, correct?
What about connections? Requests can be part of it, yes? What else does 
it include?

Thanks.

An inbound connection attempt is when a node contacts your node.  An
outbound connection attempt is when your node contacts another node.
In both cases, after a successful connection, requests can be made, either
by your node or by the other node.
So for example, an inbound requests implies a connection between your node
and the other node, but doesn't imply which way that connection was set up -
your node could contact another node, and then after successful connection
the other node could make a request to your node:  that would be one
OUTBOUND connection and one INBOUND request.  Similarly, a node could
contact your node, and then make a request:  that would be one INBOUND
connection and one INBOUND request.  Similarly for outbound requests, where
your node initiates a request to a connected node.
One connection persists for as many requests are made to/from the connected
node - so one connection (inbound OR outbound) can have many inbound and
outbound requests.
hope that helps...
Thanks that's very helpful.
