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.

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.

Angry To Morpheus users : BEWARE the bug...

I have posted in Forum about Gnucleus the info.
If you are using Morpheus aka gnucleus and are satisfied with it DO NOT UPGRADE to morpheus/gnucleus or any clone.
Versions 1.7.x are bringing bad supernodes and usefull complex re-research feature.
Versions 1.8.x (morpheus called 1.9.x but is 1.8.2), last being brings cool ultrapeer mode and great hashing feature(read later how great).

posted in forum about Gnucleus

Faulty HASH !!!!
You may have noticed that Gnucleus haven't been updated for two month.

You may have noticed that Morpheus uses a pure copy of Gucleus engine.

There are new clients like AtomWire using Gnucleus renamed code (even functions) compiled as .NET (Gnucleus is done for that either).

You also know that when newer Gnutella (like Gnucleus, Morpheus, Bearshare, Limewire or even GTK-Gnutella...) clients get hashed files they use the hashes to validate the downloading file.

You may also have noticed that Morpheus+Gnucleus=50% of gnutella network.

Now what if from the beginning there was a bug in the hashing system of Gnucleus when getting the hash for shared files ready to upload ?

Well, this is the case, and it is worse than anyone can imagine : the bug consists in having something around getting half of the shared files (one every two) with wrong hash result. Somehow if you share only one file, this may not happen. Even worse, when this happens, the wrong hashes may be a replication of well hashed shared files. This is, however not a rule, so when looking at gnuhashes.ini you may not get what is wrong if you do not have a hashing tool. The fact that you may have msleading hashes with misleading tables may result in wrong requests, blocked downloads and this may happen for one half of half of the gnutella network. Imagine the problem the Gnutella network is facing. If you want to use Gnucleus, or Morpheus (stay away from new clones) and especially if you want to share files you may have to get Morpheus or last Gnucleus 1.6.X version. If you are compiling the 1.6.X source, do not forget to apply the re-research patch. You may also have to delete from partials the .nfo files and rename the files without hash1 search info. No more ultrapeers but you may see how fast your downloads and uploads are working again.

For those who compile the source, put the re-research feature in GnudownloadShell.cpp of 1.6.X version of Gnucleus:

// Added re-research by mort4
m_Active = false;
m_Retry = true;
if (!m_Cooling)
m_Cooling = 300;
m_Searching = 0;
m_Dead = false;
if (!m_Cooling)

// end Added re-research by mort4 and remove next 2
// m_ReasonDead = "Unable to connect";
// m_pComm->TransferMessage(DOWNLOAD_UPDATE, (WPARAM) this);

This is the only fix until Gnucleus developper gets on it again.

Thumbs up Shareaza.

Some people say they can connect to Morphus/Gnucleus better with Shareaza than with any other.

1st problem : Gnucleus 1.8.2 used in Morheus 1.9.x does have a handshake bug corrected in 1.8.3/1.8.4. Gnucleus 1.8.4 may handle this bug well.
2nd problem : Gnucleus 1.8.x and so Morpheus 1.9.x are computing bad hash results for half of the files.

The 1st as the 2nd problem can be handled by any client aware of the bugs.
Especially the 2nd one may be handled by not considering hash results (even searches) from gnucleus (wait for the first version that may solve it) and morpheus and getting files the old way. Those bugs do not affect uploading hashed files to Gnucleus or Morpheus which do handle them well.

Default This is not creating bad files.

This may only disable downloading or may get error messages on requests. I am just looking at what's wrong in gnucleus and it seems there is some buffer problem on hashing data which is well computed (even if you may have noticed how slow). Both problems may be quite easily solved.

... and I added some other features (more intelligent blocking IP) and multiple choice for downloading and also working on a DoS massive conter-strike (getting info on DoS). It seems other are working on the latter on Gnucleus.

Default About bad files downloaded from Morpheus.

1st reason. I nearly forgot about the bug in Morphus which was translated from the short living Gnucleus 1.6.0 (upgraded to 1.6.1) which had a bug when assembling partial files (I don't remember if it was wrong uploading info or bad partial file handling from multi-source downloading).

2nd reason. Overpeer et al. This is real. If you get version 1.8.4 of Gnucleus, don't forget to use the blocking feature against their fixed IP. I also added every fake request IP (those like my_request.asf) and fake file IP (quite empty media files mainly with good headers). However, one may be carefull as spoofing is also used to get you out of IP sharing real files. Some random pinging may reveal the truth (this has to be implemented).
