Default Re: Emule tweak + tips guide / how to speed up emule ed2k network client

[SIZE=7][FONT=Fixedsys]Hi,
On emule under the servers heading I seem to have no connection to KAD server....when I connect.

I am also getting on start-up the following message - "no server list address entry in "address.dat" please paste a valid serverlist address into this file to auto update server lists" when I start up emule.

I have tried to reload emule but no joy....I think I need the URL for Kad to update my server on the servers tab?

When I connect is shows on the information section ...

EMULE/SERVERS Tab

Kad Network
Status: Disconnected


Can you help me with this issues....

Kad is a serverless network. Personally I dont use it so dont know too much, however my understanding is this.

Once you have connected to the standard ed2k network over time a database of known clients is created. KAD uses this file to connect to one of the high ID known users running KAD to 'Bootstrap' from. I actually found when I did play with it that I could bootstrap using my own ip or none at all. Most of my admin'ing was via the webadmin screen which simply asks for an IP.

You must have a high ID to use KAD.

The KAD network is a serverless network (meaning no single point of failier), each connected client caches data about part of the KAD network. this does not cache files rather the known file list and clients etc. the KAD network is then searched over lots of clients to find the data. This does mean you will see people searching your KAD client for files that you do not share. This is normal.

make sure you are running the latest emule client from emule project's homepage

Also have a peak at emule's faq and section on server lists. The faq also include links to pages of constantly updated serverlists.

Cool Re: Emule tweak + tips guide / how to speed up emule ed2k network client

thanks for this,

Is there any way I can get rid of the start up issue I mentioned on start-up the following message - "no server list address entry in "address.dat" please paste a valid serverlist address into this file to auto update server lists

I have found I cannot paste anything into it as it is a video file?

Cheers!

the addresses.dat is for when you want emule to update it's server list every time it restarts (it effectivly is for urls to pages of server lists),. there's a setting somewhere to turn off 'auto update server lists' - turn it off as you don't need it

regarding KAD - first time you'll need to press 'bootstrap' on the KAD screen,. I presume you have 'use kad' turned on? (if kad is off then you won't see a KAD tab at the top).., once KAD is bootstrapped it should then be able to connect

Silver,

I have a 5mbps connection which usually runs at about 4.5 megs to 4.8 megs download and from what the provider says its about 350 upload.

My emule settings are:

download capacities - 4500 (download)
350 (upload)

download limits - 4500 (download)
151 (upload)

Max sources - 2500

Max limit - 5000

file buffer size - 256 kbps

que size - 5000

Your current upload setting is simplying saturating your network. Hope this is your fix.

Dear All,

I am a new user of EMULE. My problem is that I am trying to download 3 files. Each is about 350 MB. The problem is that my client has been set to an upoload of 50 kB/s and it shows download rate of about 5 kB/s (whereas I have set my upload speed to 50 kB/s and download speed to 100 kB/s). I am on a LAN network. ANyw suggestions to enhance my download speed ?

Anxiously waiting,

Atta.

Unhappy Re: Emule tweak + tips guide / how to speed up emule ed2k network client

Hi to all
I am familiar with emule not long ago (2 months), and I will speak about one problem I noticed regarding speeding up connection.
I don’t know if you know but adsl speed isn’t always 2:1 (512/256) – I use adsl connection and my is 256/64 (next is 512/128) because of that I have problems – Regularly I can download 25-26 and upload not more than 5-6 (max 7 – regarding emule) Kb per sec. If I use emule like that everything is ok except one tiny, little thing. I can’t surf and not even to speak about getting or sending e-mails. That killing me. By your opinion that isn’t right by you and yours idea of what is good and right because someone will say – He download more than he want to share – that’s isn’t right but you set all (even connection wizard because there isn’t something which show parity like my adsl connection) to act like I am doing bad thing. When I try “little” adjusting upload speed (lowering it on 4 – THAT IS ONLY 1 number lower than 5 – which I can really upload) mechanism, which is in emule, punish me and I don’t download more than 16 – which is … hmm. I will gladly use at least 20 KB per second – normally I will gladly make my upload number higher but that isn’t possible and being on internet all day, and not check your e-mail or been unable to surf and to see and read some new things is very BAD feeling.

I am a designer – and I really love that JOB (I also love to share that - I mean knowledge and software). I even get new programs – releases – and share with all others but that’s not counts here. Any opinion about this?
One fact which is also put me in bad mood is that I yesterday get fix IP and I want to use it for making one little web server for information about design etc. If I put emule use all my resources regarding that I don’t want to be punished - my upload will be very high (it will eat all my connection) and in different words my web site will be INVISIBLE because nobody cant get trough my connection to see anything

I don't think there's an easy fix,. 256/64 isn't great (well for UK it is quite slow) even without emule a website isn't going to be very fast (esp if you are serving files / images etc) - the simple solution is to get a faster connection (if possible!)

the other area to look at is whether it's a problem with your router - perhaps it is that which is making surfing / emails not possible?

No no nooo – You didn’t understand – perhaps because of my writing. When I reduce dl/up everything works perfect I only want to tell that mechanism for punishing in emule isn’t quite right way. And that you have been work on modem until two months before, adsl will be haven for you. I downloaded 43 Gb in September – that is ………… unbelievable for my friends.

yeah, I understand but with emule you can't change the way it punishes, perhaps there's another version of emule that does not punish / punishes differently but I don't know of one

Hi Sarte,

Welcome to TS!

It looks like you are checking for open ports on a proxy - rather than your actual IP address. What colour are the arrows on emule itself, if they are green then you are ok

Hi konagei,

Welcome to TS!

Tell us a bit about your connection, do you have a router or are you using a modem only?

If you are using XP firewall then try this, under 'options' menu - goto 'connections' and click where it says 'open these ports on internal XP firewall' - see if that helps?

I don't know whether you need reboot or not for the changes to take effect?

it does seem likely to be the XP firewall, I don't use XP so can't really advise too much on it,. the other thing it could be is your ISP - in some countries ISPs don't allow p2p at all (I think at this point though it's probably XP firewall - but could be a number of things)

yes - that's normal, at least to start, if you can leave the thing running overnight or as long as possible you should see it even out (generally you'll download more than you upload but uploading is a 'good thing')

generally if you have a high-id then the server is just a directory of sharers, so usually you just find a well populated server that has a reasonable ping - using kad will also allow you to find more ppl with the files you want

eMule uses source exchange. It works like this :

an emule server you are connected to will provide a short list of random clients that have the file you are looking for. You then connect to these clients and join their queue. At the same time it also asks these clients if they know any other clients with your file. This is source exchange. Theoretically through source exchange you should find every available client.

Kad is a distributed directory where each client holds a portion of the database, meaning if servers are unavailable you can still locate clients.

Hi everyone,
I have a dsl internet with a modem 764/256. I never really get d/l speed more than 25kb/s(maybe its high) but the thing is I get it really not often. Even if i wait 5-10hrs it is the same. It is kinda internesting how come with all the other download softwares like bittorrent,azeurus,bitcomet, emule, i never get more than 25kb/s, it is stange. Maybe my internet has a 'cap' or something? i read in forum most of the people downloading torrent files, have the d/l speed above 40kb/s. I have all the necessery ports opened for all the d/l programs do i have. Windows firewall is shut down

Hi,

I have just started using eMule and thinks it's really cool!

I had a low ID and have used the tips on here to try to improve it. I'm not brilliant with computers but, after fiddling around, I've managed to get a green arrow on the top of the connection globe symbol. Thanks a million Sil!!!

I am using a wanadoo livebox which I have set to forward the eMule ports. I have also adjusted my firewall (norton internet security) setting for eMule to "permit all" (is that wise?)

I still have a low id, the bottom arrow is yellow. The max download speed I've achieved so far is 16Kb/s, but on average it's 3Kb/s.

Can anyone give me some pointers to help improve my id?

Cheers

Hi Buzzer,

welcome to TS!

the top arrow on the globe is 'kad', the bottom arrow is ed2k network, so it sounds like you may need to recheck the settings.

under 'options' > 'connections' look-see what ports you are using for the client port (esp the tcp one) and make sure that is mapped at your router (livebox).

try the connection tester linked from the text at http://www.edonkey2000.com/documenta...reachable.html that will tell you whether you have set things up right.

regards the personal firewall (norton) - really that is your choice - my own personal feeling is you are more likely (so far anyway) to get into trouble with downloading something dodgy by accident (e.g. virus) than you are with letting the outside world connect to your ed2k client,. just check that you are using the latest emule client now and again and all should be well
