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 Cant Connect!!! Node Status (gnu Local: Timed Out) Cache At 45.87%

Ok... I am struggling with this

Gnucleus tries to connect, but never does.

On the Advanced tab of the Connections window I see a bunch of nodes popping in but they just go in this order…

Connecting
Connecting –Syn Sent
Gnu Local: Timed Out... dangit!

Cache sits at 45.87%

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and am currently running version 2.2.0.0

- I am running Windows XP with all the updates.
- I am also running Mcafee Security Center (tried turning off firewall, didn’t make a difference)
- My Windows firewall is disabled
- I am on a wireless network


PLEASE HELP!

It's probably because the host cache used to bootstrap is now too old. You may want to Google for GWebCache (or BeaconCache), then pick a Gnutella host IP and try to connect to this host manually. I remember Gnutella2 connection was failing, so I fired up Shareaza, noted a G2 hub IP and manually connected to this hub with Gnucleus: Gnucleus then updates all its data and works like a charm after that, no need to repeat that again.

I notice you posted this recently (Oct 2008). Is this still the case? Can Gnucleus still work if we manually get a G2 hub IP?

Can you give us an example please.


PS: Thanks for your signature. No wonder why I thought Shareaza went weird.

Hi andrew, I reinstalled Gnucleus on this puter, and interestingly I get the exact same problem described by the OP (cache stuck at 45.87%). Note that to be able to connect to G2 you'll need one of the latest (yet old) daily builds from Gnucleus Daily Builds Home Page . Now you have two options: either you fire up Shareaza or you find a GWebcache on a search engine. Here's an example, Beacon Cache, hosted by its developer: Beacon Cache II 0.1.19.1 . There just pick a G2 hub IP and port, and on the Advanced tab of the connection window feed it to Gnucleus and give it say a couple of minutes. You can repeat the same with Gnutella, and yes, it works with both Gnutella and G2, I just tried again to make sure. PS: Make sure you forward the appropriate port on your router if you're behind a NAT.

Hello, I am facing similar problem. I am complete beginner. I have installed Gnucleus 2.0.2.0. It is trying but it wont connect. In the Advanced Connections window it recognises many nodes, but after several seconds the status will change from "connecting" to "Gnu Local: Timed out" This goes on and on. Operating system is Windows7. Can someone help?

Have you tried File_Girl71's connection data here: Updated Connection Caches for Gnucleus! ? I noticed it was quite old beginning of this month but still might be ok because a percentage of G2 nodes tend to use static addresses (if they are still using the network.)

I am working on updating my own Gnucleus nodes, I will post it now if necessary but I don't think it's as up-to-date as I would want it to be to offer it here. You should still connect with it though.

Gnucleus 2 uses a slightly different connection file compared to Gnucleus 1.8 and is in a different location. For a start, Gnucleus 1.8 did not connect to the G2 network. But this is irrelevant for you.

For Windows 7, I am not sure if this is necessary for Gnucleus, but for some gnutella clients, it is best to run the program in Administrator mode (ie: right-click the program or the shorcut and choose to open as Administrator.) This may assist with connecting.
I only have Gnucleus 1.8 running on Win 7. My Gnucleus 2 runs on Win XP.

I just opened up my Gnucleus 2 and it connected to the G1 gnutella network immediately to 2 peers, and to 5 within 30 seconds. G2 is always slower because the G2 connection data in the connection file is last on the list. Took a minute or just over to connect to 2 G2 hub nodes for me.

In preferences -> Connect, I have it set as such: When in Child Mode, Keep at Least 4 Connects. I suspect this only applies to the Gnutella (G1) network. But 3 is plenty for Gnutella and was the standard number for most gnutella clients when this Gnucleus version was released. Even 2 hosts for gnutella is fine. Gnucleus will go into idle mode if it is not being used, and drop down to just a single gnutella connection. But as soon as you do a search, Gnucleus will quickly pick up more connections.

For filtering search results, of course you need to have filter words. But the filter option on the search results window needs to be checked, and as search results are coming in, go to the advanced tab and press Refresh for the filters to do their action. Else, check option 'Don't display results from filtered nodes' under Search in preferences.

Keep in mind, I do not think Gnucleus has UPnP abilities to open a port in NAT modem-routers. In which case, port forwarding is better for best results. Ports 6346 or 6348 are the default gnutella network ports but most above this number are fine.

There is also the option to Force Ultrapeer mode. If BearShare 5.1 Beta users do it to help connect then why not. "lol"

Gnucleus 2.2 would not run on my Win 7 or one of my XP's. But it seems 2.0.9 does. So this will help me to update the caches.

For G2 I found most my connections were with ShareAza clients. Occasional ones like Morpheus, P2PRocket, Crux, etc. If you use the Browse Network tool, keep in mind this is a static window and does not update on its own. You need to use the Refresh button.

I prefer to collate the hosts that show tendencies to stay connected for several days. The weekend is not a good time to collect such data. I prefer to do it mid-week when it's easier to connect to the dedicated users online rather than the weekend only users.

When I am reasonably happy with the GnuCache I will create an installer for it. But I will do it sooner if you want it now. Then update the installer again later.

Hello Lord of Rings, thank you for the answer. I only understood some of it. However, in the meantime I found some other solution for P2P filesharing. I downloaded bitTorrent and it works without problems. So the question is, is there anything special why should I try to make gnutela client Gnucleus work?

Torrents are great. Personally I use both torrents and the gnutella network. In fact, I have one program for private torrents and another for public torrents. I like to keep their bandwidth separate. I tend to mostly use LimeWire and Phex for the gnutella network. Phex because it has had a habit of finding the rarer files.

Gnucleus is an old client that has not been updated in about 7 or 8 years. But there other gnutella network clients that are more up-to-date.
