Question giFT never connects to Ares, Gnutella


Hey everyone, as the subject suggests, I have Apollon installed using giFT. However, when I run Apollon, Gnutella and Ares never connect. I find this odd since I used to have LimeWire on this machine, and that connected just fine. FastTrack and OpenFT both connect fine and almost instantly. Below is some output from the config files. I have turned off my firewall completely, and they still will not connect. Help please!

Code:
[ben@Darkflame ~]$ cd .giFT/
[ben@Darkflame .giFT]$ less giftd.conf
[ben@Darkflame .giFT]$ more giftd.conf

# MAIN

[main]

#
# Boolean determining whether or not this file has been reviewed and is
# complete.  giFT will fail to start unless this is non-zero.  This is done
# so that we can make sure you, at the very least, read through this file.
#
# Default: 0
#
setup = 1

#
# Space separated list of hosts to allow connection to giFT's interface
# protocol (running default on port 1213).  This protocol is used for GUIs
# to communicate with giFT and could be considered a security risk to allow
# external connections.
#
# The following special keywords are supported:
#
#  ALL       - Synonym for 0.0.0.0/0
#  LOCAL     - Synonym for 127.0.0.0/8 192.168.0.0/16 172.0.0.0/11 10.0.0.0/8
#
# Bitwidth fields are optional.
#
# Default: LOCAL
#
hosts_allow = LOCAL

#
# Port on which to listen for user interface connections.  Unless you have a
# special need to talk to the client on a non-standard port, just accept the
# default.
#
# NOTE:
#  If you change this value, you will also need to modify the ui.conf
#  configuration for the machine which will be making outgoing connections
#  here.
#
client_port = 1213

#
# Determines whether or not to follow symbolic links.  If this value is set
# non-zero, symlinks will be traversed and a directory inode tracking system
# will be used to ensure that giFT does not descend the same directory
# twice.  If you do not have any symlinks or do not want them traversed, set
# this to 0 for a very minor efficiency gain.
#
# Windows users: this setting has no effect.
#
# Default: 1
#
follow_symlinks = 1

#
# Colon separated list of protocol plugins to load by default.  If dynamic
# library support is enabled, the plugin specified will be stat'd to check if
# it is a loadable path.  If that fails, the fallback method is to attempt to
# construct the fully qualified path based on the configured environment.
#
# NOTES:
#  Without dynamic library support, this plugin must have been compiled into
#  your giFT binary.  With, this plugin must exist in the installed
#  plugin directory.  giFT -V will output this path to you, if you are not
#  sure.
#
#  Protocol names are case sensitive, so use OpenFT, not Openft.
#
# For example, to use the OpenFT and Gnutella protocols use:
#
#  OpenFT:Gnutella
#
# Default: none
#
plugins = Ares:OpenFT:Gnutella:FastTrack

###############################################################################
# DOWNLOAD CONTROLS

[download]

#
# Directory to store transfers while they are being operated on.  Temporary
# state files are also kept here.  It is recommended, but not required, that
# the incoming and completed directories are on the same partition (drive).
#
# Windows users: please use the following path specification:
#
# incoming=/[drive]/dir1/dir2
#
# For example, to refer to C:\Program Files\giFT\incoming, use:
#
# incoming=/C/Program Files/giFT/incoming
#
# Default (*nix):    ~/.giFT/incoming
# Default (Windows): /C/Program Files/giFT/incoming
#
incoming = ~/.giFT/incoming

#
# Directory which will contain files after they have successfully finished
# downloading.
#
# Default (*nix):    ~/.giFT/completed
# Default (Windows): /C/Program Files/giFT/completed
#
completed = ~/Fresh MP3's

###############################################################################
# SHARE SUBMISSION AND UPLOAD CONTROL

[sharing]

#
# Maximum amount of uploads allowed from the same user at any given time.  It
# is recommended that you keep this at 1 in order to prevent users from
# unfairly queueing your connection.
#
# Default: 1
#
max_peruser_uploads = 1

#
# Determines whether or not to hide directories which contain a leading dot.
# These directories are commonly meant to be "hidden" and thus should not be
# submitted to the network.  Selecting 0 here will submit all directories.
#
# On Windows files will additionally be checked for the hidden attribute and
# not shared if it is set and hide_dot_files is 1.
#
# Default: 1
#
hide_dot_files = 1

#
# Colon separated list of fully qualified paths you wish to share.  These
# directories will be recursed at giFT's startup and the files contained
# within will be subjected to an MD5 hashing.  The results will be cached and
# will only be recalculated on a per share basis when the size or
# modification time in the cache and on disk disagree, or the file name is
# changed.
#
# Sanity notice:
#  Do NOT share source directories!  Remote nodes will refuse to index your
#  shares if you are attempting to submit more than 64000 files.
#
# Security notice:
#  Do not share directories which may contain sensitive information, such as
#  ~ ($HOME).  Also note that any directories shared here will be stripped of
#  all but the last path element when submitted to other nodes for indexing,
#  effectively "hiding" the directory prefix.
#
# Windows users: please use the following path specification:
#
#  /[drive]/dir1/dir2:/[drive]/dir3/dir4 ...
#
# For example, to refer to C:\Program Files\giFT\shares and D:\shares, use:
#
#  /C/Program Files/giFT/shares:/D/shares
#
# Default: none
#
root =

#
# Maximum amount of simultaneous uploads allowed.  Setting this to 0 will
# cause giFT to not limit outgoing transfers.  Use shares_hidden to disable
# sharing.
#
# Default: 0
#
max_uploads = 0

#
# Whether we allow sharing.  Setting this to 0 will allow sharing and uploads
# up to max_uploads.  If this is 1 your shares will be hidden from the world
# and uploading will be denied.  This may also be handled at run time via your
# GUI of choice.
#
# Default: 0
#
shares_hidden = 0

#
# Controls when giFT periodically rescans your shared directories for any
# changes (new files, missing files, changed files, etc.) and communicates
# those changes to the underlying protocols.  This parameter specifies how
# often (in seconds) you want that to happen.
#
# For your reference
# ==================
# 0        turns off periodic auto-resync
# 3600     one hour
# 86400    one day
# 604800   one week
#
# Default: 86400
#

#
# Controls whether or not giFT should automatically share files that you have
# finished downloading.  This feature significantly improves the network's
# abundance of files and helps ease the load on those sharing popular files.
# It's a Good Thing (TM), please leave it on.
#
# Avoid setting your completed directories through sharing/root, as that
# setting will duplicate recursion of the completed directory and cause
# generally undesirable results.
#
# Default: 1
#
share_completed = 1

#
# Controls whether giFT ignores the incoming directory when sharing files. If
# this is 1 and the incoming directory is within one of the sharing roots all
# files in and below it will not be shared. This is what you want in all known
# universes. Should you find yourself running this software on a parallel
# world where it is necessary to share the incoming files please make sure it
# doesn't affect us back here. Thank you.

# USER SPACE BANDWIDTH CONTROL

[bandwidth]

#
# Bandwidth throttling allows giFT to have some basic control over your
# bandwidth usage.  This code operates in user space, and as a result can not
# guarantee perfect accuracy.  If you wish to use this feature, please
# consider using a more reliable kernel space option first.  As always, google
# should be able to assist you there.
#
# The following configuration switches control the maximum number of bytes
# per second allowed for the given stream direction.  A setting of 0 will
# disable throttling for that direction.

# Default: 0

#
# Unlike OpenFT, the Gnutella plugin uses a single port for both HTTP and
# protocol communication.  Similar to OpenFT, this port must be reachable from
# the outside Internet if you want to download from firewalled users.  Download
# and search result performance is much better when this port is reachable, as
# quite a fair number of hosts on the Gnutella network are firewalled.

##############################################################################
# HTTP CONFIGURATION

#
# Should the Gnutella plugin use an HTTP proxy server?
#
# The Gnutella plugin will contact some websites over HTTP for finding an
# initial list of nodes.  If you need to go through a proxy server to access
# websites, the plugin will fail to connect to the Gnutella network unless you
# fill in your proxy server here.  This should probably go away and be replaced
# by checking the 'http_proxy' environment variable instead.  Please fix me.
#
# This field can be formatted as hostname:port, with an optional 'http://'
# prefix and optional trailing slash.  For example, http://my.proxy.com:8080/
# and my.proxy.com:8080 are valid.

# Most people can probably leave this blank.

uh oh, found something...

when running "giftd -v" I found the following...

[13:12:06] Gnutella: gt_gnutella.c:153(gnutella_start): Starting Gnutella plugin
[13:12:06] *** GIFT-ERROR:
Your version of the Gnutella plugin is more than 1 year
old. In order to protect the Gnutella network from
older programs, this plugin has deactivated itself.

Please update the plugin with a new version from
http://www.giftproject.org/, or stop running the
plugin by runnning gift-setup or removing "Gnutella"
from the /main/plugins line in $HOME/.giFT/giftd.conf
manually.

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.

Ok, I just made the install clean, downloaded the source again, and recompiled/installed. Let it run, it downloaded the hosts file, and bam, now we're connected.

This thread was kind of a waste for me, but if anyone else ever encounters this problem, maybe this thread will help you.
