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

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 Streaming Phex features with extension if gnutella protocol

Hello,

Is it possible to add streaming P2P features within PHEX ?
The Gnutella protocol seems to be only applicable to files. Maybe an extension of the protocol is necessary. I need such new features to transmit live P2P video for eseco systems web3.0 appliances.

For ideas what to change you could look at peercast: PeerCast P2P Broadcasting

They seem to use Gnutella internally (though I don't know if it's an old version - if my memory serves me right they only supported Gnutella 0.4 for quite some time).

Default Peercast is too old

Hello,

I tried to use peercast, however the version seems old and it is not maintained since 2007.
However, I will look at their source to see if it is possible to merge it with jtella, and extend the gnutella protocol.

AFAIK jtella is even older than peercast.

If you want to use an up-to-date java-based Gnutella client, just have a look at Phex (at least if you want to have a chance to see your improvements in the mainline client).

Default Interoperability tests with PHEX

Hello,

I have found two versions of JTELLA (Jtella-07 very old 2001, and Jtella-08 more recent 2003).
A Jtella-07 peer doesn't work with a peer Phex because Phex only accept ultrapeers, so I get 503 error codes.
The Jtella-08 seems to be able to connect with Phex because a jtella08 peer can act as an ultrapeer, so I don't have the 503 error anymore. However, I still have some issues when querying files. I will look at both source codes to see if this is an inteoperability issue.

I did also some tests with Limewire but that doesn't work at all (even when I try to connect a Limewire peer with a Phex peer).

After fixing these protocol issues, I will try to extend it with streaming features using peercast.

Have you any ideas about the interoperability issues ?

Yes, firewall detection issues.
Phex will not reply with search results if it determines that downloads won't work anyway because both nodes seem to be firewalled.

Default TCP checksum is bad

To try interoperability tests within Phex and Jtella, I use the wireshark sniffer.
It seems that Phex truncates the TCP packets (Connect, pong...) which results in bad TCP checksum. This error causes Jtella to close the connection. (I attached the wireshark file).
192.168.1.221 is Phex
192.168.1.78 is Jtella

Sorry but I can't really believe that Phex is truncating anything on TCP level. The implementation is very high level and is not doing anything TCP related.
If anything is truncated at such a low level, its either because of a bug in the Java VM, OS or something similar.
Additionally there are no connection problems with other client. I assume the interoperability problem is not caused from such a low level problem like faulty TCP packages.

Yes, it seems that the TCP checksum is not the real cause the problem.
After looking deeper in the source and doing some more tests, I see an interoperability issue in PHEX and Jtella.
The Gnutella RFC 0.6 says in section 2.3:
"Servents SHOULD remove any GGEP blocks from Ping, Pong and Push
messages before sending those messages to hosts that have not
indicated GGEP support."
Here, PHEX has not seen that Jtella-0.8 doesn't support GGEP, but sends the GGEP extension anyway. This causes Jtella to discard the PONG message due to a wrong payload exceeding 14 bytes.
AFter modifying some code in JTella, the PONG message coming from PHEX is now accepted, but I guess that a correction should also been done in PHEX, to avoid sending GGEP extensions to servents that doo not support this feature.

I just added the code to drop the GGEP data from pongs to SVN. I have no tested if it works correct, can you please do this...
You can get the changes directly from the Phex SVN or sometimes tonight or tomorrow from our automated build system (in case its running correctly): Index of /snapshots

I only did this change because it was quite easy to integrate, though actually I don't believe it is necessary to still support outdated nodes that don't yet support GGEP extension...
