Apollon - cannot download


I am running Mandrake 10.1 and am behind a router with DHCP enabled. I installed apollon and everything and it connects to the FastTrack network just fine. However, when I search and find songs to download and double click to start the download, the songs just sit in the transfer section with nothing happening. Could someone tell me if I need to open some ports or something?

before you open apollon you may want to look for issues with the gift itself. Open a terminal and type the following:

giftd -v

you will see text dictating what gift is doing. If anything converns you or gives you flags post it here or google it.

also, make sure you have port forwarding setup on the routher for port 1214 on tcp and udp to your local IP address.

I may be wrong but I believe it is 1213 for port forwarding.

yeah, ur wrong :P

by default, port 1213 is the the poty giFT listens to for a controlling programs... like apollon..
Apollon connects to gift on port 1213 to tell it what to do... you DONT want others on the internet to controll your gift clients !

port 1214 is the actual downloading port.

but ofcourse this is only by default, and can be changed in the config files, or by the gift-setup program
