[freenet-support] How to update on a Windows machine??

2004-01-01 Thread benny
Things don't seem to be as straight forward on a windows machine.  For linux update, I 
just ran update.sh.  What the heck to do I do to update on a windows machine?  Sorry 
for the dumb question, but I can't find any simple documentation or user's guides 
either.

Re: [freenet-support] Help, please.

2004-01-01 Thread benny
I have just started a new node on my SuSE box without any problems.

1) Download tarball.
2) gunzip/tar -vxf
3) cd freenet
4) ./preconfig.sh
5) edit freenet.conf (add ipAddress, and storeSize)
6) forward the freenet listen port on my NAT box
7) ./update.sh
8) ftp over a seed nodes file from another machine
9) ./start-freenet.sh

Note:  If you're not running behind a NAT box or firewall, you can skip step 6.  You 
can most likely skip step 5 too, unless you want a larger datastore (which you should 
do, I use storeSize=4096M).  Last I heard there was some issues with default 
seednodes, so step 8 may be the key with a new install at the moment.  I don't know of 
a graceful way to getting a fresh seednodes file at the moment tho.

 I have installed Freenet on my SuSE system.  I have opened the
 appropriate ports.  I have run sh start-freenet.sh --export myref.ref
 and  # sh start-freenet.sh.
 
 I run on DSL.  Since installing my processor has had major bouts of
 great activity but I am unable to even access the default bookmarked
 sites.  Also, I don't know my own site key.
 
 I am totally lost here!
 
 Help, please, anyone!
 
 Mike

share?  hehe..

 Subject: [freenet-support] Geographical distribution of Freenet
 
 Is anything known about Freenet's geographical distribution? Like, are there
 more nodes in the US than in Europe? What country has the highest number of
 nodes? How large is Freenet actually? In Tbytes as well as number of nodes.
 Stuff like that.
 
  
 
 In this context I have a suggestion to the maintainer of the WEB-site. Why
 not include some sort of voluntary registration on the site where people
 can - if they want -  give a few details about their system. Like where in
 the world they are located, type of connection (permanent or transient),
 size of storage, time since first install, version running. Nothing to
 compromise anonymity - just an option for the developers to gauge their
 success and make a few statistics.

[freenet-support] how do I turn this dern thing off

2003-12-25 Thread benny
I've been running Freenet on my linux box for quite a while, with no problems.  I 
decided to try it out on my window's machine.  All was going well, and working fine, 
until I went to stop it.  With Linux I was able to execute stop-freenet.sh, but I 
couldn't figure out how to gracefully kill it on my window's box?!?  Am I just a 
moron?  Did I miss something?

[freenet-support] huge storeSize/key expiration

2003-12-13 Thread benny
I've got a nice new machine that I built, and I'm willing to share it with 
freenet.  I set my storeSize to 10G, but I've noticed that freenet seems to 
automatically delete data from time to time.  I'm not a freenet expert and I 
don't completely understand it's architecture, but I'm wondering why it's 
deleting data when it's nowhere near the size I've alocated for the store.  I 
guess I'm just asking how can I best get my node to utilized the resources 
I'm giving it.

[freenet-support] multiple nodes inside a NAT network??

2003-12-10 Thread benny
Just curious as to the logistics of multiple nodes behind a NAT'ed firewall.  I can 
have each of them have different listen ports and forward the ports to the correct 
node, but what will nodes outside the network think of multiple nodes to the same IP?  
Will the nodes in the network learn to talk to each other dirrectly?  Will there be 
any proformance impact?

Thanks!
