Hey Bert, you got this one wrong: STARTING is as far as I know not about any network issue. It is about one of those I think: - compressing the file - encoding the file into Freenet's on-network format. This includes computing FEC information for example If it hangs there, I would suspect one of those issues: - very large file and slow hard disk. Waiting some more might help - db4o bugs. As a conclusion, the following can be said to John to answer this support request: - If you are using the latest regular official Freenet release 1467, then using a purge-db4o testing release might help. Instructions how to obtain one are on toad's flog, which is in the default bookmarks of Freenet. - If using the testing release is too complicated, you might just wait for 1468 to be released. It should be out rather soon (a few weeks). - There is also a solution available which is even less effort: Try disabling compression for the insert. (Please don't do that for many inserts / for ever as uncompressed inserts take more disk space on the network) Greetings
