friendly suggestion
the author should really look at the mutella project

that's how you write a sane p2p text client with a portable (web) gui

Re: Hub Listing
If you're looking for an alternative dctc GUI that doesn't require GNOME, take a look at dc_qt.

Re: Questions

1. You cannot. DCTC automatically closes this kind of connection after 30 seconds.

2. the usage of -b command line option does not allow you to discard the / of the /LOG command, that's why the command is ignored.

About configuration file, In one word: never. DCTC is not made to perform this task. This is the job of a UI. dc_gui makes this quite well :)

A last word to conclude, if you want to have fast replies, avoid this list because I only check it when I post new release. There is a mailing list you can find on DCTC homepage.

Thank for your nice program at firts.

I have 2 questions:

1. After a few seconds somebody connects my DCTC (my dclist is uploaded), DCTC closes connection with the other client. Then a "RFRSH" appears in the DCTC log. So, i don't want DCTC to close the connection, how can i do this?
2. I want to start my DCTC logging in a log file. So i use the -b LOG dc.log command, but nothing happens. It works only when i use the command in the commandline /LOG dc.log. Why?

I think it would be very usefull if DCTC would use a configuration file.

After all, i think DCTC is a very good program. I don't know other linux DC clients.

Sorry for my english.

Seems pretty ad-free to me, and the program is installed and working rather damn well, I'd say..

Re: Hub Listing
dctc comes with a program called hublist that will give you all the hubs.

Hub Listing
If some has the answer to these simple questions,
I'd appreciate it. I've gotten the program installed and
functioning properly, but I don't have the IP's for any
hubs to connect to. Does anyone have a list of the
better hubs or know where i can find one at online?

Also, the GUI. I've been trying to install it, but I keep
running into the same error. The installation script
says that it can't find one of the gnome config files. i
don't have gnome installed because I use KDE. Do I
have to have Gnome installed to use the GUI? Is
there a KDE work around?

Thanks in advance!

Suddenly I have got the feeling that this project maybe ain't as serious as I thought in the begining, now the homepage is infested with popups.
