just incase u guys didnt know, there is a new new zealand based p2p service. u can read more about it and get the client software at p2p.net.nz (http://www.p2p.net.nz)

15-07-2002, 06:44 PM
3.50TB being shared at the moment ;)

Got the software. I like the idea of a NZ net.
Installed it but in spite of trying the suggestions in the FAQ I dont get any results. Not even sure if it is working?? Maybe I am just not holding my mouth right
Any suggestions welcome
P.s. Have checked parent site.

Nice. Just installed it a few minutes, very easy, even behind my firewall.

I recommed using DC++ (http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net) as opposed to the plain Direct Connect. DC++ is smaller as well.

The HUB that you want to connect to is dc.p2p.net.nz[/url]

It runs on port 411 (or there abouts). You may also need to do [i]pinholing with a DSL router for it to work well.

Its a little beauty.

Thanx. Been looking for an alternative since Audiogalaxy closed.

i dont seem to be able to find anything i want though, where does one find the international servers?

17-07-2002, 12:53 AM
It's also impossible for an international user to connect. So you jetstart people can feel free as you won't be giving away your spare gigabytes.

17-07-2002, 01:00 AM
you can get international servers by clicking on the public hubs button or similar.

Most hubs have limits as to connection types and amount you are sharing.

Also remember that dc.p2p.net.nz is blocked off from international traffic so that it won't affect your international usage.

but someone still needs to get it here in the first place.

No my dog is sitting on the chair beside me, she has no interest in the computer tonight.

17-07-2002, 09:43 AM
Have everything set as recommended. i.e correct hub and port. Have tried passive and active and still nothing happens. It seems to find the hub ok (Zone alarm shows that it is connected) and the hub shows in the server box but any search I do produces nothing. My modem indicates no activity at all. I have set ZA to act as server. (Running ME)
Any help would be greatly appreciated
P.S. What do you mean by pinholing

it must work, -=JM=- was getting stuff of me last night
OK what server or hub are you connected to? there should be a list of atleast one in the favourate hubs box thingy, click on that to connect.
this flew strait past ZA, with only the standard "do you want to let this prog............" dialog, it should work for you, it might take a little experementing.

17-07-2002, 10:22 AM
Thank you Chris:)
"Click on that to connect" did the trick. Simple huh.
Once again thank you :D

I see I have to enter IP address. Where do I find that

17-07-2002, 11:46 AM
You dont 'need' to enter an ip address. Mine is working without one. some ISPs assign a different one each time you log on so it changes each time

17-07-2002, 01:14 PM
OKEDOKE....... thought you might, as I can't get it to work :-(

try entering dc.p2p.net.nz as the server/hub address

17-07-2002, 01:46 PM
YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ! This is awsome so far. Does anyone know if you can get it to work on a iMac? My friend would be extatic if it did

Use the chat feature and ask some of those already using it.

they say on thier site that they dont make it for linux... mac isn't even mentioned.....
so unless your friend with an imac has a windows emulater thingy, i think its a dead cause.

17-07-2002, 02:46 PM
Thanks guys...... Now I know what a kid in a candy shop feels like

If you downloaded the DC++ (http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net) client it does not need installing. Just unzipping and the files just work.

Thanks for the info I was using kazza lite and it was eating thru my 10 gig allocation for international traffic, a nz hub enables me to share as well as D/load which is all good .

Can anyone tell me if there is someone on the Orcon hub who has a good collection of Kiwiana, apart from myself?

What other hubs are there apart from dc.p2p.net.nz ????

22-07-2002, 06:37 PM
There are heaps of other hubs worldwide.

But only really the one in NZ.
