I used DC++ protocol a few years ago, at its beginning...
I always considered it as the best P2P software...
Then, i left it during a few years...
Now, for the 2K10 Year , i decided to use it again...
But, i'm faced with the several changes : some DC++ clients unmaintained, new ones, etc..
So, i studied this and read a lot of articles and i decided to chose ApexDC++ client.
Previously, i used to edit my favorites.xml file in order to auto-connect t o a huge number of hub.
So i edited my favorites.xml file and added ~ 2300 hubs : the sum of the three best actual hublists...
Yeah, i'm totally crazy...i know, but, in the old times, i already did it (with less hubs, it's right...).
I don't care waiting a few minutes while it's launching and connecting to hubs : i want to access the maximum files i can (DC++ hadn't such success without its quantity of shared files...).
But i'm faced with some problems :
* i tried many DC++ clients : well, i can accept that it can be hard for them to launch it (+2000 hubs) : if some people try as me : which settings do you use to reduce charge ?
* I tried to edit my favorites.xml file with different quantity of hubs : 200, 500, 1000 & +2000. My DC++ client doesn't connect to more than ~ 150 hubs (it varies from 100 to 200 hubs connected)... is there any hard limit ?
I'm actually sharing +100 Go of data : it seems that it permits me accessing most of the hubs (am i right ?).
So, i don't care about resources used : i want to access most of the hubs.
So, anyone could explain if it's possible or not (and why/why not ?) ?
Or does someone have a huge working favorites.xml (but how does it differ from mine ?) ?
By the way, as an alternative to multiple hubs auto-connect, i found this :
Does it really work ? Has someone already tried ?
Thank you for your answers and for helping retrieve the best of DC++ protocol ,
