About aMule on a private network !!
« on: January 05, 2019, 04:14:04 PM »


I would like to have advices from competent aMule and computers users  about a question

First the context:
I would like to create a private aMule network (on a LAN) for personal needs. First of all, I set up a private network with four computers: three computers are aMule clients (aMule is installed with proper settings) and one is running an eDonkey server.
The eDonkey network is working properly. Each client has a HighID and can successfully download files from the others on the private network.
However I have a problem with KAD network. As there is no internet connection (it is local), I tried to manually bootstrap from clients of my private network.
UDP Bootstrap Request and Response messages are sent but then clients receive a LowID and a firewalled status.
Of course I checked the configuration of ports and firewall issues.
What can I try to do to get a HighID with KAD network? And the question is: is it possible to run KAD on a private network?

Thank in advance.

Yes, it should work. At least there is code to support KAD on LAN. I'll have to check it though...
