Hey I was just wondering, does anyone know here if the edonkey 2000 network rules of high I.D. and credit, apply to the Kademilia network. On a side not I finally found out how to setup emule and get a high ID, so i've been using it lately, but i think i like the kad network more, and if those rules still applied i would probably like it even more.

So thanks if any of you know.

If you have a highID in the server based ed2k network your settings are perfectly fine in the serverless ed2k version called KAD as well.

As far as i know only emule (windows) and maybe amule (linux) support it yet. The shareaza people are working on it.

The only downside is the heavy udp traffic that is causing many cheap routers (the ones you get for free from your isp) serious problems. A firmware upgrade sometimes helps.

Wait a second, KAD is just ed2k, but serverless instead?

I still wanted to know though, does the credit system apply to KAD to?

I think KAD is a DHT layer on top of the ED2K network. Someone more knowledgeable can probably correct me if I'm wrong or add more info.

You are right. Kad is just another way to find sources. Just like the server search and source exchange are. Transfers are still done through the ed2k protocol.
