This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed giFT a couple of days ago. It didnt work. Through searching I found out that I had installed an old version. No problem, I find and install the newest version of giFT from sourceforge. I cant connect when I start up giFTcurs. I get no errors. It just doesnt connect. In the statistics window at the top of the screen everythin is zero. Does anyone else have this same problem?
Originally posted by fair_is_fair If you are using a router you need to open ports for the different protocols - gnutella, etc. What about firewall settings? Can gift access the internet?
I've tried giFt on several different operating systems and it is flawed. You may find amule and klmdonkey more reliable.
What makes you think it's flawed? It's always worked fine for me on numerous different PC's. There's a difference between something not working and you not being able to get it working.
My bet is that the OP hasn't run gift-setup because the very first question needs a certain response to allow gift to work. It's done that way to ensure that the user reads at least SOME documentation. I think you need to specify either a 1 or a 0 (I forget which) to the first gift-setup question or it won't work.
