Re: eDonkey Guide For ALL (REVISED)
VERY good, Wildgod
Don't forget stuff like ports, routers, firewalls have effect on your ID number and speed.
eDonkey wants ports 4661 and 4662.
You can test these ports here:
In eDonkey, you can see what port it is using by typing "vo" (without the quotes) in the bottom area and hit "enter". If it's not using the one that you have open, change it by typing "port 466_" (fill in the last number) and hit "enter". Close eDonkey and start it again.
To help get those ports open, you can try Analog X's Port Mapper here:
Also, Windows 98 is limited on how many connections it can handle. To help with that, check this out:
Even so - Windows 98 will crash if it makes too many connections.
There are some commands you can give eDonkey if you're curious or bored
In the bottom you can type:
vu (enter) to view uploads
vq (enter) view upload queue
vp (enter) view connections to other clients
Lastly - Don't expect to get blazing download speeds on rare files.
