Issue with giFT-Gnutella port!


Well I just got done setting up giFT with Apollon.Took me awhile to get Ares, FastTrack and OpenFT to connect and work. Now i am just stumped with Gnutella! For starters, I forgot to set the right port for it -_-. So I went into its config file in ~/.giFT/Gnutella and set it to be 6346 since that is its port to connect.. Well it's not connecting.. Its just sitting there saying connecting... Can some one give me a working port or something to get it to work right?

No its not possible. Besides GTK-Gnutella, Limewire and Frostwire work. Plus I did Google and this and other people had trouble with Gnutella with giFT =/

giFT code base is really old, they haven't updated it for quite a while.

Have you tried adding peers/ultrapeers manually? (Don't ask for peers here )
