FAQ - MOST COMMON PROBLEMS AND QUESTIONS (by Seli)

Postby cyko_01 » 06 Sep 2009 14:30

The following has been recovered from the old thread in the pantheraproject forums. Some content may be outdated, incomplete, inaccurate, or improperly formatted. If this is the case, hopefully someone will come along and fix it.
________________________________________
Windows XP SP2/3 Connection Limit

Windows XP service pack 2 limits the amount of connections that can be opening at once.
This can have an impact on the performance of P2P applications,
and may also make the initial connection to the network somewhat slow.

Here's a patch that removes the SP2 limit: Download

We have had allot of emails lately about this patch being a Trojan virus. It's a false virus-notification and quite annoying.. It only happens because some Antivirus developers decided to add the patcher to their virus-definitions.
Yes, it is still safe to use this patch
____________________________________

* After patching the limit, please change back these "Advanced" settings in Shareaza:

* Gnutella.ConnectFactor
can be increased to 4 or 5 to improve connect speed.
(Default: 5)
____________________________________

* Downloads.ConnectThrottle
should be set to 250 - 500, depending on your connection.
(If you router regularly gives you trouble, you might want to increase this.)
(Default: 100 ms )
____________________________________

* Downloads.MaxFileSearches
should be set between 1 and 4. (1 for low bandwidth users, 3 for high.)
(Default: 4 )
____________________________________

* Downloads.MaxConnectingSources
can be set to 20.
(default 50)
*
* Controls the number of simultaneous download connections in the connecting state.

Clean install

Before you ask, try a clean install:

* Move the Downloads and Incomplete folders to a new folder.(Cut and paste)

* Uninstall Shareaza. (delete the Shareaza folder folder), also delete the hidden folder in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Shareaza)

* Reboot

* Download Shareaza and install it. (Do NOT install it with Multi-user support, Check that it ONLY says "install to C:\program files\Shareaza")

* Move the downloads and incomplete folders back to the (new) Shareaza folder.(C:\program files\Shareaza)

* Start Shareaza and run the wizard as normal.

* If you want to, you can use the installation Guide provided by OldDeath here: https://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/shareaza/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11
Note that you may have to download it before uninstalling Shareaza. Note also that Shareaza does not have to connect correctly to G1/2/ed2k to download it, since there is a HTTP download included inside the magnet links.



If you don't want to do these steps manually, you can use the easy clean install script to uninstall a previous Shareaza installation.
Note that you will be prompted during the scripts work to uninstall Shareaza. It will not work if you have already used the 'normal' uninstaller when running the script.

How to open ports

IP stands for Internet Protocol.
All computers are assigned a unique identifier called an IP address.
IP addresses are used like street addresses so other computers can locate them. For example, an IP Address may look something like: 56.234.22.12.
If you have a router/modem it receives your IP from your internet provider. A dynamic IP changes every time you connect to the internet, A static IP stays the same.
________________________

Traffic in and out
When your computer tries to send or receive data to a computer outside, it sends the data through the router.
The router sends it out to the computer on the internet adding information about your IP and what port to use.
________________________

Port Forwarding.
Port Forwarding simply tells the router which IP and port to use. Port Forwarding rules are created per port. So a rule set up for port 4400 will only work for port 4400.
If you don't set up port forwarding, data coming in or going out, will stop in the router.
________________________

Ports
A port can only be used by one program at a time!
When your computer/program tries to use port 4400 , it sends the data to the router, if you haven't set up port forwarding on port 4400 , the data stops there. (the router doesn't know what to do)
Using port 4400 on two computers/programs at the same time will violate the "one program rule", and your data would get messed up. That's why you have to open several ports, one for every program.
________________________

Port numbers in the range 0-1023 are usually used by Windows and other OS related products.

Port numbers in the range 1024-49151 are ports widely used by web servers, P2P applications, IM clients and On-line games.

Port numbers in the range 49152-65535 are private/dynamic ports, not used by any defined application.
________________________

I always say that you can use anything from 2000 and up.
________________________

On your computer
It is very important to set up a static IP address, if you are going to use port forwarding.
You are not supposed to set the router to receive a static IP, but you have to set up a static IP for your computer(s).
Setting up a static IP ain't hard, and there are guides for all operating systems.
Usually we provide links to guides on how to set up port forwarding, which also tells you how to set up the static IP.
________________________

All of this applies to your software firewall too!
If you open port 4400 in your router, you also have to open it in your firewall

Port forwarding a home network
This is a tiny but very usefull guide on how to set up port forwarding on a home network.

1. Check the IPs on BOTH computers:
________________________________________________________________
Open up the start menu, and click Run
Type cmd in the Open: box, and click Okay
Type ipconfig /all in that window, and then press the enter key.

Take down the IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and Name Servers.
Name Server is just another name for DNS(domain name server) server.
Make sure to note which is which.
________________________________________________________________

2. OK, now you know what IP BOTH computers are using.
________________________________________________________________

3. In the router settings, Open the Port Forwarding Settings Page
________________________________________________________________
Make a new rule:
port range : 4300 to 4305 (or something else)
Protocol : TCP and UDP
IP : One of the IPs we wrote down from the IPconfig/all window.

OK, that's port forwarding for ONE computer
________________________________________________________________

4. Now make a new rule:
________________________________________________________________
port range : 5500 to 5505 (or something else)
Protocol : TCP and UDP
IP : Do not write the same IP as the last time!
This is for the other computer, so now you use the second IP.
________________________________________________________________
5. In Windows, Open the Control Panel.
________________________________________________________________

Double click Network Connections.
Right click your network connection and click properties at the bottom.
Click the properties button to open up the properties window of this internet connection.
Click Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and then the Properties button.

This is the page where you enter the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and nameservers.
________________________________________________________________

* Before you make any changes, If this page already is filled with information write it down and save it.
That way if anything happens you can change it back.

* If the boxes are blank, Click "Use the following IP Address" and enter the ip address we previously found.
Do the same with the rest.
________________________________________________________________

* Reboot the computer and try the connection test.

________________________________________________________________

* If it works, you now have:
5 open ports (4300 to 4305) on ONE computer.
* AND :
5 open ports (5500 to 5505) on THE OTHER computer.

________________________________________________________________

Now just Update the settings in all your P2P applications and software firewalls
________________________________________________________________

* Example ...

4300 >> Shareaza
4301 >> BitTorrent (uTorrent or Azureus)
4302 >> StrongDC
4303 >> IceDC
4304 >> eMule
4305 >> FTP server

there could be more, but I only found one page in the cache.

@OD: is there another version after 1.0 of the easy clean install script? If so please upload it on the recovery site and fix the link

Has been done. v1.1 has been uploaded as a single batch file and as a 7zip archive including the two required files (they haven't changed since v1.0).
Technically, both files are not even needed (so you can run the .bat file without them; will throw out error messages) but they help giving the script a better overview and making it understandable for normal users.

EDIT: I was wrong: choice.exe is absolutely needed, sleep.exe is only used to generate short breaks in the script's work.

Yes, but we can't enforce others using better programs.
What we could do however, is to release a 'Shareaza software package' including some useful programs to use along with Shareaza (including a link to a free anti-virus and firewall, as well as 7zip as a packing tool and maybe the install guide and the clean install script).

...and PG2/peerblock, klite mega codec pack, maybe the latest AIOASF. The thing is it would not be very practical to share over G2 since it would have to be constantly updated and we would never get a good number of sources

Not necessarily... It needs to be updated twice a year (maybe at fix dates) but not more. Once the applications have been installed, users can check for updates themselves. The package should contain a short program description as well as a link about where to retrieve updates for the applications included.

BTW, including a TCP.sys patcher would be nice, too (xp-AntiSpy, for instance).

Here are my suggested apps (can be links to their official pages instead of including the program itself). Another option is using portable versions:

Video:
-VLC
-K-Lite Codec Pack
-Some video converter, like PocketDivXEncoder, VirtualDub, SUPER or Format Factory (useful also with audio).

Compressor:
-7Zip

Image:
-GIMP
-Paint.NET

Patch:
-TCPIP Patch

Antivirus:
-Avast Personal Edition

Peer blocker:
-PeerGuardian
-Peerblock
-Some links to pages to download blocklists.

All these programs are free of charge.

The better option to distribute the pack is using a Shareaza Collection.

I'd suggest using AntiVir Personal Edition for the anti virus suggestion, as it scores better compared to avast in most tests.
Also, an image solution doesn't have to be included, as it is not required for using Shareaza. Most of the other apps are (in some way or an other).

I hope this is the right place to post a small question, which I have done my best to search the FAQ, wiki & forums for, with no success.

What is a ghost file and what is it used for in Shareaza?

Thanks. :)

nope, you should create a new thread, but I'll answer it anyways.

A ghost file is a way for you to share ratings for files that you have deleted from you library. When someone searches for that file they will see the rating that you have given for that file. This is a good way to let others know that a file is fake or poor quality, but it is also a good way to let people know that it is good even though you do not wish to keep it in your library (maybe you downloaded multiple copies of the same file and more then one was good)

Ghost file is a set of tags created by users who wanted to say anything about a particular file. They usually contains opinion or description about that file. Sometimes contains nasty "download hiper-super-emule now" spam. You can add your own evaluation. Note that ghost file can remain after you will delete evaluated file and will be visible for others still, as it is refering to a hash of paticular file, so anyone downloading file with this hash can see your evaluation if you are on-line atm. Usefull. This is also described in Shareaza wiki.

Private P2P in what way? In the way of privacy protection or in the way of forming your own private P2P network? The first mentioned way cannot be accomplished with Shareaza without you being a good and determined developer. The second way can be accomplished, but its very complicated to set your own private Gnutella2 network up in your private LAN.

Hi Old Death,
Thanks for the quick reply, you're obviously not really dead!!

I meant private in the 2nd sense, p2p network so's two or more people can share stuff privately . I've looked carefully through all the Shareaza config options, & maybe I've missed it, but I couldn't find a way to do this. Btw, Shareaza as it stands, even if this option is not obvious to noobs like me, is the BEST. :D

Thanks in advance, Gamerat.

Well, the second way of doing it only works when operating on the same LAN. If this is not the case, it won't work.

In order to make this work on a LAN, set the advanced settings to ignore local/private IPs to "false" (consider the Wiki article on advanced settings for more information) and set up two of the computers of the LAN to operate on forced Hub mode and assign them a static IP. Furthermore, you need to assure your router device blocks the port used by Shareaza (you can use the same port on all PCs that connect to your local G2 network). Then clear the Host Cache of all computers you want to run a 'private' copy of Shareaza on and make sure there are no service providers in their service provider cache. Afterwards, connect all of these computers to the two ones where you set up forced Hub mode. This should do it...

Questions:

1. Is there any way to clean the transfer list, erasing files that are is the list for more then x weeks (ex. 4 weeks) and yet have not downloaded more that y % (ex. 1%).

2. Is it a good idea to do that?

3. Is possible that I tried to download some of the same files, in a couple of months!

All and any help will be welcome

Yes, first you need to close Shareaza, then you need to navigate to your Incompletes folder and sort the contained files by last-edit date. Now only check the .partial files (not the .partial.sd ones) and select those that have a date old enough. Now sort the files by name and also select the respective .sd files. Delete all of them. Restart Shareaza. You're done.

bloodksar wrote:2. Is it a good idea to do that?
Why should it not be? :mrgreen:

bloodksar wrote:3. Is possible that I tried to download some of the same files, in a couple of months!
Yes it is possible. Some downloads will even never finish. That's what we call "dead/died" downloads. This can happen if one or more sources of the file do unshare/delete it while you're downloading it or if there has never existed a complete copy of the file on the network(s).

When you are not a specialist you can do a lot of damage (to itself and/or to others) under the better intentions...

I doubt that you can do a lot of damage to others by deleting your partial downloads :)

My Isp shut me down not giving me access to my account and then I was forced by my ISP (Quest) to remove all torrent download sites, if I didn't they would not let me log in, is there a way around this?? It is my only access to the internet as I live out in a rural area.

Normally, in most countries they are not allowed to do that... What you do with the bandwidth they provide you is none of their business... You should call them and ask them how their position was regarding net neutrality and that you might sue them if you didn't get the services from they you are paying for...

And BTW, calling their hotline some dozens of times and making some fire under their asses can sometimes do wonders. :mrgreen:

HI

I installed Shareaza 2.5.4.0 on XP Pro SP3 and, then, I set, in the Host Cache window, some specific ed2k server, and, in the eDonkey tab of Shareaza options, I unchecked the option "receive an updated list of servers from the server connected ".

I have noticed, however, that, when I restart this program, in the Host Cache window, the ed2k server increase. Why? How do I prevent this?

Where I find a updated security list of this program so that I avoid connecting to servers or nodes controlled by anti-P2P, ... ?

THANKS

BYE

it is the giant blue link with the magnet beside it labeled "All-In-One AntiSpam Filter" with the giant arrows pointing to it :P I don't know how I can make it any more obvious. 19,500 other people had no problem finding it.
