This is simply a matter of having enough users. It is not possible to use 
Facebook, or LinkedIn, or Orkut, without "friends". But they work.

Whereas with Freenet, it is very much possible to use it without "friends", 
but its security (and especially survivability) is vastly enhanced if you can 
connect only to people you (marginally) know and (marginally) trust. Even 
Opennet-based (network seclevel = low/normal) Freenet is considerably more 
secure than the unencrypted web!

Future versions of Freenet (particularly 0.9) will have higher security, 
probably including on opennet. However darknet (connecting to Friends only) 
will *always* be vastly more secure against most attacks, because it is 
simply much easier to get a connection to an opennet node (it's a normal part 
of the process of announcement and path folding), than to a darknet node (the 
user must manually agree to connect to you). It will also always be much 
harder to block, for similar reasons.

Freenet's security in general is probably weaker than many people assume. But 
the same is true of Tor. They have different threat models and different

problem with freenet starting. Plz help!

when attempting to start freenet, I get the browser "page load error" message:

 Failed to Connect      
 
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8888.

       
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

    * Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites?  Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

I don't understand  what's going on. I had it working. It was overloaded so I restarted node and I keep getting this error message in browser.

Also, browser and Sun Java 6 update 12 was updated. Could it be the one or both of these two?
I would appreciate any response regarding this matter.

Thank You!

Is freenet running when you get this message? (I'm guessing it's not.)

(Also, what do you mean "it was overloaded"?)

Getting Going

Hi,

 

I appear to have downloaded Freenet correctly, but can’t get it going.  Every search I try, even those suggested on the browsing page return the following message:

 

“Freenet was unable to retrieve this file.

 

Route not found - could not find enough nodes to be sure the data doesn't exist”

 

I know no one else who is using it.  I’ve left it running for several days now.  Is it hopeless?

Re: Getting Going

Hi,

Try this:


Go here: http://127.0.0.1:8888/config/?mode=3

And choose: NORMAL: I live in a relatively free country, but I would like to make it more difficult for others to monitor my communications.

Is the node actually running?

You might want to send us your wrapper.log, that can often be very 
informative. It can have IP addresses and occasionally freesite addresses in 
so have a look at it yourself first to make sure it doesn't have any 
compromising info in.

Well, how far have you got? Does it install without errors?

Re: using vista

It installs fine. I just can't browse when I set the security too high. This is my first time using it.

I believe "high security" means darknet-only operation ... which means
you need to manually add friends to connect to.
