Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default [Feature Request] Connect to different UP-vendors

It seems every time I connect, the only UP's I get are LimeWire's. Would be nice to see Phex have the ability to force/search to other UP-vendors as well.

I haven't used Gnutella in quite a while, but I do remember that it used to be the case that connecting to a BearShare-UP (in the time the real BearShare was still arround), I would get much much much more search-results.

I have the feeling this might still be the case:

searching for Phex using Limewire UP's resulted in either 0, 1 outdated or 1 valid result. The bulk of the times, the net results where 0. Same goes for FrostWire. Searching for it has yet to find a single source. On other file I know is around but relatively rare (~200 sources) resulted in 1 result, 3 sources of which 2 invalid. (Eventually, the 1 valid source provided me with 100 alternative locations.)

In the case of Frostwire btw; Why is it that a search for Frostwire seems to be translated to a search for Limewire? I get ~200 sources for Limewire 4.16.6 in a split second, while doing a search for Frostwire.

The reason why you get so many LimeWires is, thath there are just so many of them out there (and that BearShare is dead - sold out to the Music Industry).

Given time, your phex should acquire some Phex-hosts (we have only slight preferencing for Phex hosts: A Phex with at least 2h uptime (a decent Phex) is the preferred choice).

The "translated" search might be a LimeWire "feature".

So that's why i'm connected to so many Phex-Leafs

As "new" Phex-user AND stable Ultrapeer, i do NOT prefer too many Limewire/Frostwire Ultrapeers, they giving me too many FAKE search-results!
When i'm connected to more Phex and Bearshare Ultrapeers, and LESS Limewire/Frostwire Ultrapeers, my search-results are ALOT better!

"A Phex with at least 2h uptime (a decent Phex) is the preferred choice)"

Please keep it that way!

BTW, Bearshare seems to be alive again, there is already Bearshare version 7... or did i miss something???

I'm glad that you have good results with more Phex UPs

Bearshare sadly isn't alive again, but turned zombie: The bearshare developers crumbled when the Music industry threatened to sue them - they gave up all their money and all their code, so Bearshare is now a shackled program, controlled by those who are working for enslaving p2p.

Tells me "don't use unfree software, it will turn against its users as soon as that's convenient to it".

Just read the technology description page from its new owners:

Technology - musiclab

Quote:
Acoustic Fingerprinting - MusicLab protects the rights of artists by employing a unique acoustic fingerprinting technology. This technology allows us to identify copyrighted content on the fly. We maintain a list of songs that should be filtered using our acoustic fingerprinting technology, and artists and music labels may contact us with a sample of their music for inclusion in the acoustic filter's database.
And it gets worse:

- Kommerzialisierung der Tauschbörsen

MusicLab LLC belongs to the company behind iMesh, which bought the Bearshre software, website and user datbase.

(that's what you can find after just 5 minutes of googling)

@arne_bab

Thanks for the information... since i'm using Linux, for more then 2 years now, i haven't search and read alot about Windows p2p like Bearshare...

Well, some minutes ago i was connected to 23 Phex-clients
All of them are using OLD versions of Phex, so maybe it is an idea to show Phex-users an update-message by default when starting Phex???

At download.com is still an OLD version available, NOT the newest version... hope this will be updated soon.

There are still some old early BearShare 5 versions out there, you may see them occasionally. The version before the sell off. I think it was the later v.5 versions when the sale happened.

Same for me, but 5 years

But I try to keep informed about the GNutella apps for Windows just to be up to date - and the Bearshare sellout was major (bad) news.

We're displaying an update message during the first week, if a new version is available, and Phex has an internal download mechanism to get the newest version from Gnutella and the sourceforge servers simultaneously (in chunks).

But it's possible that users of old versions disabled the update message, just ignore it or didn't install the downloaded Phex (currently it only downloads the new version, but doesn't install it).

About connecting to UP-vendors... as UP and Phex user i would like to connect ONLY to Phex UP's and Leafs.
Limewire connects to Limewire UP's, Bearshare connects to Bearshare UP's, but Phex connects mostly to Limewire/Frostwire (i was connected to 29 Phex-leafs yesterday, and NO Phex UP's).

As far i understand, Phex prefer other Phex clients to connect to when they are online for at least 2 hours.
Is there a possibility to change this so that Phex will ALWAYS connect to other Phex clients when available?
I want to test this to see if i get other (better?) searchresults, less fake-files, and offcourse because it looks better in my Connection field

Sure. Do you build your Phex from subversion?

Gregor wrote some very efficient and readable comparator code in

src/main/java/phex/host/CaughtHostComparator.java
src/main/java/phex/host/CaughtHost.java

It first checks if the last connection succeeded. Then it checks if the Host is a DecentPhex.

You can make Phex prefer Phex hosts at all times by reducing the requirements for being a DecentPhex in CaughtHost.java:

just comment out the avgDailyUptime if clause in

Code:
    public boolean isDecentPhexHost()
    {
        if ( !StringUtils.equals( vendor, "PHEX" ) )
        {
            return false;
        }
        if ( avgDailyUptime < 7200 )
        {
            return false;
        }
        if ( !isUltrapeer )
        {
            return false;
        }
        return true;
    }

Hi Arne,

"Do you build your Phex from subversion?"

I haven't build anything, i'm not an expert
But changing some settings is even for me possible to do
Do you know a good (free) .class editor, beause i can't open the files

Thanks.
