Dc++ Guide

What is a HUB ?

[b]A hub is a kind of router that allows dc++ clients to interconnect with themselves. It's not called a server because it doesn't host any files, it just makes the necessary connections ( such as chatting, search request and search results ) . All file transfers are made between clients not within the hub.

My search has no results. Why ?

The reason is usually NAT (Network Address Translation -- used for sharing an internet connection to a group of computers) or the firewall . The easiest way to fix this problem is to change on the passive mode but in this situation you will not be able to connect to other users who are also passive . If you want to fix the active mode then see the section "Active or passive" of this guide.

What is my IP ?

The IP is a succession of 4 ciphers contained between 0 and 255 separed by dots . The IP directs all the traffic towards the respective destination in the TCP/IP networks . you can see the IP double clicking on the network icon on the taskbar.Another option is to type IPCONFIG or WINIPCFG on a DOS window. If your ip is internal ( - - - - -, try the following addresses to find your external IP :

Your IP:

If you use a proxy or cache for your browser the IP is not correct. Try to deactivate these services and retry the addresses above.Also if your IP is dynamic ( changes every time you connect to the internet ) you will have to insert the IP in the IP box in DC++ .

A hub requires a password . Why ?

Some hubs offer privileges to users or maybe the nickname you use is registered to another user that already has that name.

What is fake share ?

[size=15px]Using an application separate or a modified client the share is risen falsely . This is a forbidden method and will be punished by the hub operators
