recently downloaded direct connect.only one problem,how do you download?ive tried for hours but got nothing
You've got to select an HUB, connect to them and download then. Most will have a minimum share to allow you to connect, the bigger the share the better the hub, gnerally speaking. I prefer soulseek to DC. It's easier to use and has no hubs.
if you have a firewall you have to be in passive mode or else you wont get any results when you do a search. I always shut down my firewall when I use DC and stay in active mode.
DC is a good program.
You'll also have to share at least 5-15gigs to connect to most hubs. But their speed is better then on gnuttela where there's just a bunch of dial-up n00bs downloading porn and country music and not sharing anything.
another good thing about it is that you can download folders. Click on a user , then click browse users files, and then download one of his entire folders. (makes it easy to DL music albums for example, instead of separate mp3).
but the bad thing is after i installed a routed i havent been able to get DC to work.
there a few slow people but thats about it.im downloadin 2pacs album now
I prefer Kazaa Lite over DC, but there are more movies on DC, I think.
No more filesharing for me... I recently got in touble with the "Digital Software Association".....
