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.

Question Server-based multi-user file-sharing client

Hi everyone.

I've been looking for an implementation of a file-sharing application that can be run on a central server and accessed by clients (In my case, the clients are the machines inside a LAN). I'd like all peer-to-peer connections, searches and downloading to be executed by the server machine on behalf of the clients requesting it. To the client, it appears as though they're the only ones using the application - they have no knowledge of what other users are searching or downloading.

The closest I can find is Shareaza's remote control function, however, I'd need to run a separate instance of Shareaza for each user, and it's also limited to Windows. The main disadvantage of this is that each instance of Shareaza would try to make its own connections instead of the one program maintaining it all.

Preferably, I'd like a Linux console application (that can be run as a daemon). A web-interface would be super, but not a necessity.

Basically, it's a multi-user environment (Requiring a user to login (LDAP authentication would be absolutely beautiful), or based on IP, etc) with a light-weight client similar to Hagelslag.

So, can anyone help me out?

Thanks a lot.

This might be possible with Phex, by setting up one instance as forced Ultrapeer on the central server, and the others as leaves with only the Ultrapeer as starting IP, only one desired UP connection and no allowance to go to UP.

You'd have to set the UP to allow many Leave-connections, and set every client to block all ports except he non-standard port of the UP (not 6346), so they don't connect outside.

I might be able to compile Phex in such a way, that it does that, but I'm not really sure.

Still Users could simply change the settings (Phex is openly configurable), when they want to.

If you are interested, I can try to set it up (will take a bit of time, though. This weekend my girlfriend's here, so I won't have time to dabble with Gnutella ).

Through security settings I can also block any result from outside your LAN, so noone will ever see a search result from outside.

By setting it up as rivate Network, Programs fro outside can be shunned completely.

Thanks for the reply arne_bab.

Haha yeah, girlfriend > Gnutella

Sorry, but I don't quite understand this bit. Block results at the server or the LAN client?

Just for clarification: I want the searches performed by a client to leave the network and return the results to them. If possible, I don't want the various computers on the LAN to know about each other - preferably searches would not even include them.

I think I have a simpler way to explain what I'm after. One machine does everything, whether it be maintenance of the connections to the p2p network, executing the searches and downloading the requested files. The clients are more like dumb terminals whereby they just "ask" the server to perform a search, or download a file.

Perhaps I'm being a bit too specific.

Thanks again for your response, I'll look into Phex - I like that I can run it on a Linux server with Windows/Linux/Mac OS X clients

Ah! Now I understand.

You want the server to be intermediate between the Clients and the outer Internet.

What you want is what an Ultrapeer does for its leaves. If you want to exclude search results from inside the lan, you can do so with the sae settings which could exclude searches from outside, but except for pushes, downloads are normally performed by the individual clients themselves.

Every client will only keep a connection to the single Ultrapeer (and most expectedly will have a connection overhead of less than 500B/s).

Phex is at http://phex.kouk.de and the sources at http://sf.net/projects/phex in the CVS.
