some questions about Phex

I am a new users of Phex. After I installing the software and launching it, I find connections on the Gnutella Net list, even I haven't register an account. Could you let me how it connect? It doesn't need to register? Another question is that I cannot find the files shared by my friends. What will cause this problem?

Thank you very much.

If you see green connections in your connectios tab, you are already connected. to check if you're connected, try a What's New search).

Phex connects to other phex users (and users of other Gnutella Programs like LimeWire, gtk-gnutella and some miore), so there is no need to register anything (I hope you downloaded the program from Phex - Home - Phex is free software, and you don't have to pay for it).

It's likely that you can't find the files from your friends, because Phex searches only until it found a reasonable amount of results (about 250). You might want to use a longer (more exact) search phrase.

Another reason could be that your friends Phex' didn't yet hash all files to share. It can take a few hours until a big share is available.

If you want to know *how* Phex connects and searches, please have a look at Gnutella for Users - Gnufu

Not sure I see a LimeWire icon above or anywhere in this thread post .. do you? I see Phex which is another gnutella program, arguably better than LW. ;) LimeWire (Cross-platform) or simply drop LW & get a decent program like Phex .. less spam, more results from non-LW users, easily connects. :)
