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.

Post gnut questions

Is there any good way to get info out of gnut-0.4.21 when it's running daemon mode (gnut -d)? I'd like to make sure that I'm sharing properly, and I'd also like to make sure that I'm not zapping anyone's transfer before I ever shut off.

Also, does anyone know of anywhere I could find info on scripting for gnut? I'd like to tweak that considerably, and the help is minimal.

Any pointers to any resources on gnut would be handy. Thanks!

Hello. I use Linux 2.4.2 and Gnut 0.4.21. I don't know how to use daemon mode, but I do know how to use scripting. It is really handy for setting config params correctly and making sure you aren't booting any users. You can type 'help load' for a quick scripting example. The Gnut manual for basic and advanced usage should have come with your distribution in /gnut-0.4.21/doc/gnut.html. You can also get the manual at
This explains pretty much everything you can change using commands & script. You can get to a couple more variables by typing 'set', which will list all config variables and their current values. Hope this helps.

You could monitor it with a task manager cause it creates a new version of itself for every connection. You can have it print to a log file instead of deamon mode, see the script below. This isn't the best idea so when something else is available, use it.

I made a script (fix the word wrap) I use pppd to connect on demand, see the wake up stuff it's logged in within 90 seconds, I called this script from cron every night at 8PM, then had the gnutRUN.txt file do stuff (with delays allowing it to start downloading files) all night for 12 hours. I run gnut out of it's own directory, put the gnutRUN file in that directory with shared, downloads ect.. Nice to let everyone share my files. The gnutRUN file is last (partial, you do your own) HAVE FUN! (a few people doing this is probably not a problem, but find something better to do this with it hammers the net fairly hard. I stopped doing the downloading and just have it run nightly with all my shared files, I use Gtk-Gnutella now, you should try it, please respect the Gnet, thanks)

NOW, please tell us how you get a free ISP connection going via Linux, thanks. I would like to create a script to use a free ISP till it's time is up and then switch to another free ISP so I can share files like a crazy RIAA hater!
