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.

Talking Am I the only one? Gnucleus 1.4 is out!

Hi all!

My trusty Gnucleus has just evolved!

I hope someone would enlighten us as to what plug-ins are (or should be), and what do we should expect from this release!

Thank you gnucleus dev team!

Default Re: V 1.4

I still only see V 1.35 here :

I don't allow evolving or any other type of "phoning home" but this is where the newest version is to be found (?)

(internet here's been down past 3 days due to storms too)

milhouse_ph is flying high

seems like if you are getting interm builds from Poldy's site you upgrade to 1.4.0 but if you have the normal build it only updates to

And it only updated on mine when I switched the update setting to beta so I'm guessing that's why it doesn't appear on the site cause it's probably a beta release...

I will admit though, it looks good... hasn't crashed on me or anything like that... and I really like that you can choose to have it minimize to tray on exit... no more accidental disconnects from the network...

Default 1.4 Released

Yes Gnucleus 1.4 has been released to current gnucleus users. I do this as a final test, and kind of like a gift that if you are current user you will get the latest update. It is not available on SourceForge yet, I have to finish making the new installer package and then I will make a final release of 1.4 to the public.

Gnucleus phoning home? you can look at the source, gnucleus checks for version updates, there is absolutly no data sent to from gnucleus except for requesting a list of the latest versions and where to download them.

Default to me phoning home is *any* bare connection

> Gnucleus phoning home?

hmmm well I have a stricter defination of what "phoning home" means than most people I guess - that connection to only check reveals my true IP in the server's log...

That violates our security - all of our traffic goes through public anon proxies - I even block DNS lookups from "rouge" apps.. ( that is any app that doesn't *need* DNS service - Gnucleus uses IP's so obviously it doesn't )

Stealth and 100 % anon connections are part of our security and this IP appearing in any server log breaches that concept.

Gnucleus's DNS calls are seen as unauthorized traffic as are any IRC attempts - my mIRC client runs to a SOCKS'ified proxy chainer (HTTPort) which places two anon proxies between me & the IRC server(s), rendering me double anon to IRC yet able to access servers which don't allow proxies (SOCKS, wingate or even "normal" HTTP ones which some IRC networks check for too)

So because I allow Gnucleus to run "naked" - direct with no proxy (to make it easyer to connect to various Gnutella net users and allow me to serve other people behind firewalls - I don't *have* to be - I have a choice) other traffic (DNS/HTTP/IRC) is blocked. The only way I will allow Gnucleus to do DNS, "evolve", or IRC is by SOCKS 5 proxy or better (chained)...

I also see many - MANY attempts from other Gnutella users to NetBIOS right after connecting to them normally (port 6346-7) I permanently BLOCK said IP's considering them hack attempts.

I believe these are not Gnutella users at all but hackers looking for victims under the disquise of Gnutella. (mostly - some are just other fool's NetBIOS wide open - in any case it cannot be allowed)

That having been clarified I ran Gnucleus all last night and part of today and am very happy with it. With only 8.mb RAM I did see an "out of memory" error a few times - this occured while trying a large number of other hosts (too many sockets being opened too fast chewing up physical memory before they could clear ?)

I reduced the host hopping and ran for several hours without *any* memory errors

I did notice an apparent bug however - I run a 33.6 modem, but at times Gnucleus reported speeds of over 100.kbps ! (while transfering non-compressible MP3's) I've seen such speeds when transfering test text files (blank pages of just spaces) but this cannot be accurate for MP3's...

Not a big deal but thought I should mention it.

The re-try every __ seconds seems to work for me - I saw the default 30 sec working and also upped it to every 60. sec - maybe it's only *less* than 30.sec that doesn't work ?

The search data rate in and especially out is really refreshing - under 10.kbps in and only a trickle out (usually - although I've seen it peak at times depending on host to near full BW, 3.4kbps - I drop such hosts)

The search results are really nice - up to 20 X better than Napster, I look for rare hard-to-find songs and Gnucleus works *better* than Napster ever did (even when server hopping)

I did a search for "dr demento" and got over 2000 results !

Very nice

Resume seems to work fine - I have to resume nearly all my D/L's (due to my free ISP kicking me every 40.min)
Gnucleus works far better than the original Gnutella (v.56) because when I re-dial it picks up where it left off (due to the timed re-tries - very nice, I can queue up some D/L's and forget it ! ) Gnutella required "babysitting"

Showing what songs people want is also very nice - I can cull my offerings to provide the most wanted songs (would like to be able to copy & paste this data though)

Multi-host, same song auto mixing re-try, is also very nice - it allows you to get the rest of the song from any other available host with no hassles and clicking on extended info shows them all..

Usually these features are reserved to hated java clients and MFC runs pretty decent even on the slowest of machines - this report is it's performance on a *386DX33* (not even considered machine enough to run windoze although it's really RAM and not CPU that's the issue there)

Gnucleus is the best Gnutella servant I've ever used.

Gnotella has become too bloated and java just sits there thrashing the HD...

I wish you luck with the new version 1.4.0.
I hope you've fixed all major problems.

The mfc42.dll runtime errors is like a curse on Gnucleus.
If you can't fix this soon you got my condolences.

And I will probably throw my monitor out of the window
in frustration next time it appears.
