And, as it stands, the patch was submitted, rejected for being ugly, and xhost+ decided not to clean it up and resubmit. Come on... My patch was not *that* ugly Anyway, I prefer ugly things that work fine to pretty stuff you can do nothing with! And if the original poster want to try that (ugly) pa...

When the timer starts to countdown all hubs disconnect and all dl's stops Seems strange. I've never experienced that... Did you compile it or did you use the binary? And where are the options (lowest speed) supposed to be saved??? It's explained on the website. In the settings page there is an "Upl...

Update

The source distrib at http://jdcpp.free.fr was missing QueueFrame.h. It's now fixed.
Thanks to Toad for pointing this out.

Does this really merit no encryption at all then? If your ISP decides to throttle bandwidth based on your usage there really isn't anything you can do about it besides using less bandwidth. (But I think you are trying to tie this usage to any protocol that does not match an Allowed List of Protocol...

I for one would love to see even some very low level encryption on all data transfers, simply for the purpose of defeating packet sniffers that are looking at packet headers I don't think encryption would prevent ISPs from figuring out that P2P traffic is going on. They do not need packet nor traff...

I was also thinking in adding this kind of feature myself. I would call it "blacklist user". I would blacklist a user if he keeps on disconnecting me or its download speed I judge too low. The benefit would be that blacklisted users would not be considered as potential sources during the whole sessi...

Definitely no. Who cares where I'm from? Dowload speed is not really related to source distance anymore. I download faster from far-Sweden than I do from my German "neighbours".

The only way to avoid trouble from intellectual rights protection organisms is by achieving total anonymity on the hub. One way to do that would be by both encryption and man-in-the-middle transfer. People have already discussed about ecryption, so I'll focus on indirect transfers: For that a modifi...

That's done

Hello all,

The patch has been submitted today.
I had to rework it a little bit to make it compatible with 0.401 (it was 0.305 based).
Hope it'll be included.

I would suggest that you simply submit a patch instead of branching off.


I have no problem with that. How can I do it ? I browsed the Feature Tracking on SourceForge but couldn't find any way to submit an evolution?
So where to look at ?

OK. Seems that feature's got several votes.
I'll setup a website to download both binary and source code (GNU oblige).

the reply is along the lines of using the max speed for starting new downloads and just setting your download slots alittl ehigher then you normally would I may be wrong but I don't think that has anything to do with what I did. The trouble is when you go to bed and DC tells you that there is 6 hou...

Automatically dropping slow users

Over the last past months I have been testing a feature I added to DC++ : Any item in the queue can be tagged so that if the download speed of the item you are downloading falls below a settable threshold for a settable period of time, the user you are downloading from is automatically removed from ...

I think that first we should investigate on why do people try to cheat using slotblockers. For me there are 2 answers : they are assholes who didn't really get the meaning of "share" and there is nothing we could do against that except DNA modification or they are honest users but really pissed off ...

Re: QueueItem download speed

Haven't tested it but with a QueueItem you should get the associated download with getCurrentDownload(). With this download, you can get the average speed with getRunningAverage().

I did it on .305. and it works fairly well (very stable, not erratic). Blind copy/paste doesn't work though since a few things evolve between .251 (latest ++k) and .305. Just read the code and adapt but don't forget that there are 3 main classes to update : DownloadManager, UploadManager and Buffere...

Dropping slow users

Hi all, This is my first post here, so don't start a flame war if I'm off topic. This is just to let you know that I have added an option to DC++ 0.305 (but should be easy to port on .306) which will automatically remove a user from queue if its download speed stalls below a settable limit for a set...
