What couldn't you believe?

If DC++ finds an identical file already existing where you are trying to download to, doesn't it simply skip the download? That's how my DC++ works, although it's an older version.

Yes, we have changed address, since our old one took too long to re-point, and we didn't want to wait. YnHub.org also has a much nicer sound to it than the old one, don't you think?

You should send the $BotINFO in your $Supports, some hubs might not want to send you $HubINFO unless you've done this. But i don't think you have to do any special logins like Carraya says. I suggest you try it on other hubsofts too, like YnHub, so it's not just a buggy hubsofts fault.
