Auto find sources in WinMX

Postby alba1314 » Mon Sep 19, 2005 3:26 pm

Can anyone tell me how to set auto find sources in WinMX to less than 10 minute intervals - say every 5 minutes or so?

IIRC there is no possibility to set it to less than 10 minutes and that for a good reason: you will hammer the network.
Windows? Blah. Linux? Blah. BSD? Blah.
Just make sure you have a computer licence and I can open your fsckin files.

There is one add-on application I know of (which I'd prefer not to mention) that hammers the WinMX network continuously, and if a lot of people use things like this, WinMX would slow to a crawl for everyone.

A few years ago, the DonkeyBot, a similar type of server-hammerer, started to be used by a lot of eDonkey users, and the ED2K network got so overloaded, it became virtually unusable as a result. Fortunately, a backdoor coded into the application (surprise! surprise! this was not open-source software) allowed the developer to remotely disable all the Donkeybots in use, and the ED2K network instantly came back to life.
