DC++ Clients

Postby The_Ginger_Scotsman » Tue May 24, 2005 3:49 am

Quick question: a number of modified DC++ clients are not allowed by many of the hubs. But I'm just wondering what modified client hub owners take least offence to?

I'd say fulDC is the most widely accepted. It's the one I use, and I've had no problems at all.

It's concidered the replacement of oDC now that they don't update that anymore.

fulDC, zDC, LDC, StrongDC are the most popular legal clients I've seen.

ZDC, LDC, StrongDC are often not considered 'legal' clients because of their multisource downloading feature, which is more suited to larger central servers on such as bittorent. Multisource clients also hog slots at relatively slow speeds :roll:

It depends, if you are in a pitiful hub to begin with then maybe those clients aren't considered legal. And as for low speeds, I don't get less than 30kb/s per connection. Faster the file is done, faster it goes into my share folder.

It has nothing to do with whether a hub is pitiful or not, its about having a level playing field. There are plenty of hubs large and small only allow DC++ and fulDC so that everyone can get a fair crack of the whip when it comes to slots. Multisource is much better suited to servers where many more users are connected than a DC hub can carry.

I know revconnect is also frowned upon in a lot of hubs.

a client is illegal or not is fully decided by the hub owner/operator. Most hubs allow normal DC++.

some hubs ban BCDC++ because of its upload speed limiter.

I use BCDC++. True, some hubs do ban it because of it's ability to limit upload bandwidth. However, most reasonable and knowledgeable hub ops will allow it because they know full well that DC++ will saturate even a high speed connection within a matter of minutes. The bandwidth throttle is, sadly, a necessity. Most people's internet connection becomes unusable without some kind of bandwidth choke in place. I think most BCDC++ users try to keep it reasonable, allowing enough bandwidth for leechers to get decent speed while reserving enough of the pipeline to be able to surf and do other things at the same time. As a general rule, I will throttle back on bandwidth during waking hours and then open up the pipe when I go to bed, thereby allowing leechers to max out my connection when I'm not using it.

On the other hand, there are clients which allow people to create fake shares which in turn will allow them to get into high ratio hubs illegitimately. In other words, they may be sharing only one gig of files, but the fake share fools the hub software and it appears as if they are sharing one hundred gigs, thereby allowing them entry into a hub where the minimum share is set to, say, fifty gigs.

In my opinion an op has every right to ban clients which allow faking. Too many people abuse fake shares, even to the point that they aren't even sharing any files at all. And that's bogus. So I fully support hub ops who ban those clients.

oDC and DC++are the most popular (and allowed) in DC Network.
Many "bad clients" are banned in +/- 90% from public hubs, for exemple:

AsG++
DCGUI
GDC++
rmDC++
StrongDC++
zDC++

Clients with Bandwidth Limiting and segmented downloading features aren't allowed in many hubs, so for newbies the recomendation is: use DC++ or oDC.

The so called "operator clients", like iDC++ and DCDM++, that have not these features are allowed because his features don't works fine in hub that the user is not an operator.

This "political" from DC Community is very old, but I think that one day it will be changed.

Sorry for my poor english...

That kind of logic is illogical.

theoretically dc++ has a function "use small buffer" to make sure that the upload doesn't block download. But it doesn't word :/

Well, NMDC is also dead ;)
I don't know why DCGUI is blocked. In fact it is the only really good linux DC client ...

dc has always been a bastion of ignorant ops refusing to adapt to new and better technologies

i remember when almost everyone banned for using dc++. look how successful that campaign was. hubs that ban for cliens suck. period.

then again, they are usually public hubs, and those automatically suck anyway

rmDC++

Postby ancutaandrei » Sun Feb 25, 2007 12:17 pm

One thing I noticed with rmDC++ is that it sometimes keeps running even if you shut it down. Check your Task Manager to see if it is still running.
