I Think I'm Paranoid

(with apologies to Shirley Manson & Garbage...)

I got a little paranoid with eDonkey - for one thing, stuffing around with the Terminal doesn't sit well with a pleb like me who doesn't quite understand Unix (I pulled the reins back pretty hard after BASIC, Cobol, Fortran and Pascal. I think my head might explode if I attempt another language!).

Also, more paranoia - with all the latest Security Updates from Apple, it seems they're still trying to plug the gaps for people trying to access your computer as "Root". It seems to me that eDonkey (along with some other P2P clients) would be an ideal platform for hackers attempting to do just that - and therefore create havoc with your system.

Example: A colleague of mine installed Limewire on his iBook running OSX, and funnily enough, still uses it with a broadband connection. However, when he came to me with a problem when his hard drive kept erasing files, I found that a few extra users had been created in his login screen.

And since no-one else - apparently - has access to his system, it seems a bit suspicious, don't you think? (cue: "Twilight Zone" music)

I dunno... :rolleyes:

down in Fraggle Rock
1. download
a) mldonkey http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/mldonkey/
b) cocodonkey http://sourceforge.net/projects/cocodonkey/
c) donkey-o-mat http://www.soft-o-mat.com/productions.shtml

2) unstuff each one if they dont do so by themselves, if the donkeyomat looks like a word file unstuff it manually...
3) place mldonkey file in the applications folder
4) try dragging the mldonkey file into the donkey o mat once youve unstuffed this last one (omat) this should open the terminal and crap but dont mind that....
5) open cocodonkey, preferences, locate your mldonkey
6) try connecting to the daemon
7) quit cocodonkey, quit terminal, now everytime u open cocodonkey it should do everything by itself... SHOULD...

thats pretty much how i got it to work and its working 24/7 now guys, try reading the read me files.... the files in the temp folder inside the mldonkey folder get moved to the incoming folder by just pressing the green arrow inside the white boc in cocodonkey... no need to rename files... converts movies too! the search window stops working after like 3 or 4 searches... solution: quit and restart the app, it autoresumes flawlessly... NOW YOU KNOW! happy downloading! VIVA DONKEY!

!

5) open cocodonkey, preferences, locate your mldonkey



THE STEP ABOVE IS THE ONE I HAVE TROUBLE WITH, where should the mldonkey be? is this the file in the applications folder? I always get this message in cocadonkey: (image below)



I guess step 5 is where I get stuck, oh and witch mldonkey file do you put in the donkey o mat and where is it located and what zipped file does it come from
