for a bit more than a year, I used Freenet (discontinuously but
regularly), without problems on Mac PPC Tiger.
Now, I updated my old machine to an iMac-Intel, and, trying to follow
the advices, downloaded the last "Freenet.jnlp", but, even if it arrived
correctly on my desk, it doesn't start the install, neither
automatically, nor by double-clicking it.
So, continuing to follow the instructions, and since the first steps
didn't work, I went to Linux instructions, and entered in Terminal the
commands how they are given to DL the new install jar.
java -jar new_installer_offline.jar
It didn't work... so, I extracted the first part of it (URL) and Dlded
it by hand with FireFox.
I must say that I still am a bit bepuzzled with the content of it, that
doesn't seem to ressemble the sort of packages to be installed through
Terminal... no file called "install" nor "istall info", giving the steps
to follow… nor file in it looking somehow a bit alive (.sh, .jar,
.exec...) so, I tried anyway to follow the commands given in the tut,
but it didn't work either...
Next thing, since I'm on mac-Intel, I tried to install it on the xp pro
side of my computer...
It downloaded OK, and installed fine (there is already i2p working fine
on this xp), but now, and after few hours, it doesn't seem to be able to
connect to nodes... I opened the proper holes in the router from my
modem, and it didn't managed either... (I choosed *normal *at all
security levels, meaning that it could connect to unknowns), and also
gave momentaryly my IP (bybassing proxy)... besides this, I don't think
that for this xp pro there is any firewall... have to investigate though
to see if my mac Firewall works for it (really don't think so, neither
I must say however that I would very much prefer to have freenet
installed and working on Leopard, not fearing then any virus and such
problems with it... I know, if XP would get infected I would only have
to reinstall it... since I don't keep much folders in it... (at the
beginnig, I'd try to see if, been on Mac, it would be protected from
such attacs and infections, and, just for the experiment went to a site
where I new to find bugs, and... ;-) … well I had to reinstall it...
so now, I'm being a bit careful.
Next thing, if I can't find proper solutions, would be to install
Freenet on the linux part of my OS (there is already stealthnet on
Kubuntu, working fine) and this has anyway, like mac, the Unix security
I'd be grateful for a little advice... thanks.
