Torrentflux

Hi, I've used Torrentflux on unslung for about 3 months and I can tell you that is as fast as utorrent in my windows box, but it fails reporting download speed. Example: downloading a 700 mgb file is reported to be downloaded in 5 days and is usually downloaded in less than a day, very often in no more than 8 hours!
Is a very good bittorrent client if you download no more than 3 torrents simultaneously. The other fault is that seeding more than one torrent at a time can consume almost all your internet bandwidth. I think that's something you may fix by changing the control settings.
I'm sorry I can't give you any technical information, but I'm just a total linux-ignorant NSLU2 end user!

So for the past month, GlobalScale Technologies' website has been saying:

It is now April and their website has changed:

Bah. (My US-based delivery address will become unavailable in a couple
of weeks. How's their customer support?)

What firmware are you using? There were some reports of wrong speeds
reported by TorrentFlux on Unslung 6.x at the TF Forum:
http://www.torrentflux.com/forum/index.php/topic,3870.msg21379.html#msg21379.
They seem to be related to Unslung only, as I cannot reproduce this
problem under SlugOS. Unfortunately, I am unable to diagnose the exact
problem, that may be related to the way the underlying BitTornado
client provided with TF calculates the actual upload and download
speeds, therefore I am not able to provide a fix for it.

I usually don't download more that three torrents, too. In this case,
the main problem is the lack of available RAM in the slug. With only
32MB, two or three simultaneous torrents is all an NSLU2 can handle.

Yeah...not effect.  Starting to wonder if a diversion script is required for SlugOS/BE to make this work...

Is this still not working?  Did you try the suggestions I sent earlier?

Diversion scripts are for Unslung, in order to work around the Linksys
startup sequence and their tools.  SlugOS is a standard Linux system;
diversion scripts are completely unnecessary, and in fact there's
nothing to divert.

Tinylogin is what is reading the passwd and group files at login; it's
not a very feature-rich program, but tinylogin has been around for a
long time, and it's known to work just fine -- and reading a passwd and
group file is pretty basic.

So, that means that in all probability, your group file is damaged --
open it in a proper text editor, and check it for funky characters (like
MSDOS line endings), and proper structure.

If the group file is not damaged, then the question would be how do you
know it's not working?  I don't think you've ever mentioned how you have
determined that -- what is it that is not working correctly for you, and
does that same thing work correctly on another Linux system?

Regards,
Mike (mwester)

Re: Torrentflux

HI, thanks for your comments. I'm using TorrentFlux on Unslung 6.10.
I'm ok using TorrentFlux even though it doesn't report the download speed accurately mainly because it's fast in terms of a device with 32 mb in ram.
I use it when I want to download something quick. When I'm not in a hurry I use enhanced-ctorrent with CTCS with the default settings .
It's slow and not all the trackers want to  play with it but it is sturdy and most of the times it can handle four or five torrents, downloading or seeding at the same time. It reports speed acurately on Unslung 6.10. and doesn't clogg my internet conexion.
Regards.

Re: Unslung 6.10 amuled amuleweb (amulecmd) do'nt open tcp socket

Just adding a final note to this thread.  I'm 95% certain that the amule ipkg doesn't work as is with Unslung
6.10.  It definitely seems to be a problem with writing the cryptkey.  You can copy a cryptkey from another
instance of aMule or eMule, which will get the application moving, but then it blocks when it tries to write
it again.  The problem has nothing to do with the TCP socket, I believe.  Apparently, some people got it
working by recompiling the part that handles the cryptkey, but that was beyond me.

Two options I can suggest: 

a) mldonkey definitely works for torrent and eDonkey. Very slow though. 

b) aMule 2.1.3 apparently works better (for instance, see Roland's message below). I made aMule 2.1.3
following the instructions here:

http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Main/HowToRunAmuleDaemon
(the tarball link doesn't work anymore, so you have to search for it)

I ALMOST have 2.1.3 running, although I'm having a problem connecting to KAD, which I'm hoping to get some
help on, but that should be a new thread.

Ciao.

Unslung 6.10 amule 2.1.3 connect to Kad

Hello,

I'm trying to get aMule 2.1.3 running on Unslung 6.10.  I've made the application and it ALMOST runs.  I can
launch the app; log into amuleweb; it connects with a high id; I can do a search and get results; but I can't
download anything because Kad doesn't connect. Actually, it connects, but says it's firewalled, and
then eventually disconnects.  Also, the file that I want to download shows multiple sources at first, but
then they disappear (I imagine that they time out).  I can't figure out why.

I know I've got the ports forwarded correctly on my router.

I thought it might be the server.met or nodes.dat file, so I took those from my windows laptop (which has
eMule and works great on the same router with the same ports) and copied them to the Slug, but that didn't
work either.  

I read some posts about ipfiltering sometimes being a problem, so I turned that off and deleted those files.
No luck.  

I read some posts about iptables being an issue sometimes, but apparently Unslung doesn't use them (I don't
know much about iptables).

My guess (just a guess) is that it's a udp port issue on the Slug side.  Does anyone have any insights on this?  Or
did anyone using aMule see this problem and fix it?  Please let me know how.

One last thing:  when I do "netstat -l" on the Slug, I see all the ports listed (as 0.0.0.0:4662 etc), and on the
TCP ports I see a big "LISTEN" next to it.  For UDP, I see the ports that I gave to aMule, but it doesn't say
"LISTEN" next to it (but it doesn't say listen for any of the UDP ports).

Thanks.

Re: Unslung 6.10 amule 2.1.3 connect to Kad

Are you sure UDP sockets have a LISTEN state? They're connectionless, so the best they can do is being bound to a local port, waiting for datagrams :)
