5.2 Error Messages
Temporary bans last for 10 minutes (usually) and can occur for various reasons ranging from an unsuccessful connection attempt (connection was broken while sending a command for instance) to you being kicked from the hub (most likely to happen).
Permanent bans are entered manually or scripted, and they last until the permanent ban list is cleared or somebody removes you on the hub. It means that your Nickname / IP / CID is not allowed to connect to that hub any more, neither with DC++ nor any other DC client. Most hubs have reasonable owners and OP's that ban for logical reasons such as fake sharing or sharing illegal or unethical material (child pornography or nazi propaganda spring to mind). There are also those that will ban you for less reasonable things, such as your choice of client or because the OP has a sore tooth. If you run into the second type, the best thing you can do is to avoid it in the future. Who cares about them anyway? If you've been banned for reasons that fall into the first category, you've only got yourself to blame...
You can either:
Error no longer present in DC++ clients after 0.68
This usually means that there is no hub running on the machine you're trying to connect to. If you got the address from a hub list, try again later as it might have temporarily been taken down (or it's under heavy load and can't handle your connection at the moment).
If you are still unable to connect to any hub in the public list, then your only option is to try the suggestions in this FAQ.
This is most often caused by a wrong setup of connection settings or a firewall blocking DC++. For detailed a detailed guide how to solve connectivity problems go to Help menu in DC++ and select Get started. You can also find the guide about how to unblock DC++ in various firewalls and other security software in the DC++ built-in Help (and is available online at http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/webhelp/faq_unblock.html)

Look in the Errors column in the Download queue for more information. The file might be missing or corrupt, for instance. Most often it is caused by a TTH inconsistency or corrupt/absent hash tree information. Try to find more sources for the file by using the "Search for alternates" context menu item, that might able to get the missing hash data from another user. Also try to select the "Recheck integrity" item from the same menu to solve the possible file corruptions.
but how can someones filelist get corrupted. wenevr i dwnload filelist of some1 i get the error msg.
This error can happen only in DC++ 0.699 and older as from 0.700 and on resume and integrity check is done in another way.
This message means that somehow the data has become corrupted during a transfer. Usually it's because one of the users, either you or the one you are downloading from, is using a bad firewall, such as Zone Alarm, which is intercepting some packets. There are three things you can try to fix the problem:
•Delete the file and re-download it.
•Completely disable the rollback feature by changing the value in Settings -> Advanced to 0. You can do this, but at your own risk. The rollback is a scheme to ensure that the file you're resuming and the file you're downloading from a remote source are the same. If you disable it after getting the rollback inconsistency message, there will be corruption.

These messages mean that the file you have attempted to download contains a different TTH hash than the one in your download queue. There are two things you can do to fix this:
•Delete the file from your Download Queue and off the hard drive. Then re-add the file from the search window or user list.
If the message happens only when you download from a certain user then you can't do much about it except warn him/her/the hub operators about a possible hashdata corruption.
If the message persists downloading from all users, then most probably your hash data files rhat are corrupted so you should rebuild them. Open a hub and type /rebuild command to the mainchat to fix the corruption and rebuild your hashdata. The operation may take longer so be patient... If it doesn't help you should open your DC++ settings folder and delete hashindex.xml and hashdata.dat files (while DC++ is NOT running). As a side effect your share will be fully rehashed at the next start of DC++... For the settings files' whereabouts refer to the FAQ in the DC++ built-in help or in the online version at »dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/webhe···les.html
There have been a few reports of routers causing this error, too. The only way to find out if yours is causing the problem is to bypass it. Connect your PC directly up to your cable/DSL modem (make sure you have a software firewall enabled!) and see if you still get TTH inconsistency error messages.

I am behind a router (and a DSL modem) and I often get TTH inconsistency downloading files from my favourite hub. The only way I found to solve the problem is to : 0. Copy TTH from the problem file and save it (you can do a SEARCH FOR ALTERNATES); 1. Delete the file in the download queue; 2. Turn off computer; 3. Unplug router; 4. Tur off DSL modem; 5. Wait a few minutes or more; 6. Turn back on DSL, wait for all lights to be green; 7. Plug back router, wait for all lights to be green; 8. Turn back on computer; 9. Get to the hub and search the file with the previsously saved TTH root (ensure to search HASH fil type); 10. Start a new download. It works half of the time. If it doesn't work, start all the process again. PB
Always helps for me to either delete the file from my temporary downloads folder, delete it from queue and re-queue it or find another source for it.
The user that you are downloading from is already uploading enough. You will need to wait until some of his uploads are finished. How long? There's really no way of knowing.
All download slots taken
You have set a limit in your settings, how many downloads you want to have running at the same time. This setting is found under the Downloads pane in your DC++ settings.
The 'All download slots taken' message can be shown if you have files in lowest priority as well. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/dcplusplus/+bug/193645
To specify what network adapter you want to use you must fill the adapter's local IP address to the "Bind Address" setting in the Settings, Connectivity, Manual Configuration pane.
Alternatively you can change the order of your network adapters in the Windows registry, follow the steps listed in this Microsoft article: How to change the binding order of network adapters.
Make sure the adapter you're using to connect to the Internet is on top.
