Amule

Postby big_dog1968 on Wed Apr 15, 2009 2:41 am

I just installed Amule on my new Felicia KDE installation. I have used Amule with Main edition with no problem, but am having problems with KDE version of Mint. I am receiving "Low ID" from the servers. looked up the Amule wiki and it suggested, I might be behind a firewall. Does KDE have a built in software firewall? I have a wireless router that I connect through, but that can't be the problem, since it would also be a problem for Gnome version, which it is not. Any ideas?

Hi

All Linux systems use "iptables" which is a type of firewall so to speak, but not in the sense that you may think of.

Open a terminal and type
Code: Select all
ufw
which will output the following:

Usage: ufw COMMAND

Commands:
enable Enables the firewall
disable Disables the firewall
default ARG set default policy to ALLOW or DENY
logging ARG set logging to ON or OFF
allow|deny RULE allow or deny RULE
delete allow|deny RULE delete the allow/deny RULE
status show firewall status
version display version information

You may also use an GUI to enable or control the firewall like "guarddog" or firestarter, if you have them installed.

Without more info I would think that its just a configuration problem with Amule.

Hope this helps some....

I have my router firewall turned off and the firewall in mint disabled and am still getting low id. What else could it be? Emule works in windows. I have used amule in mint in other versions of mint without issue. I am running 64 bit mint right now.

Im not very familiar with Amule, having never used it, but if you can describe the problem in a little more detail I'll be glad to help you try and find an answer.

Maybe an Amule user will see your post and provide some input as well....
