Anti Leach Tools
I'v been using Phex for a while now since WinMX went to the wall.
The only prob I have is with non sharing users who just leeach off the genuine Phexers and never have anything to offer themselves. It was rife on MX but there were a couple of handy little tools to auto check uploaders file share and would boot and ban users with 0 files on offer, MX Monitor & Leech Hammer.
I dont know if its just me but I rarely find an uploader with anything in the share lately, At any given time I have a selection of 2000 files and rotate them regularly to give some veriaty to other users but its getting too much when your inundated with plebs who are quite willing to take what they want but are loath to give anything back to the community.
So the question is...
Is there anything similar to MX Monitor that will work with Phex?


A simple,
"Yes, heres a link to what you need- http/"
"No sorry there isnt any tools available do that just at the moment"
would do.

I'm very sorry for my lack of answers. I work by subscribing to forums and getting news via email, and somehow I forgot to subscribe to this most important of our boards...

Anyway: We don't have filters to hinder uploaders from downloading (they would get an incentive to begin to lie about their shared files if we did).

But: In Gnutella every downloader automatically supports the downlaoded files because he/she is added to the download mesh. So even if someone doesn't actively offer something he/she adds his/her upload bandwidth to the download mesh of the file.

You can see that when you download some popular files. You'll have new uploads for that file almost at once, because you enter the download mesh (which works just like BitTorrent, but completely decentralized).

Besides: A late but warm welcome to Phex. I wish you happy sharing!
