    • [HOWTO] Install mldonkey-server on OMV to download ed2k links

      Yes, I write the [HOWTO] Install amule, but I tested ml-donkey and notice less resources and better speed , so this is my install notes:

      some documentation: terminal28.com/mldonkey-open-s…-p2p-debian-ubuntu-linux/


      steps:

      1- open a shell , I use putty, you can use others , type

      Source Code

      1. apt-get install mldonkey-server


      done, you only need to answer YES when ask if you want autostart of mldonkey-server and this is all for installation, next steps are configuration.

      2- edit file /var/lib/mldonkey/donwloads.ini (some tips: you can edit from shell or use Winscp to locate file and edit using your prefered Text editor)

      PD: You need to be sure that mldonkey-server is NOT running when edit file or your edit is lose when server stop, command to stop mldonkey is

      Source Code

      1. service mldonkey-server stop


      Locate allowed_ips and add your LAN in this format x.x.x.0/24
      eg:
      (* list of IP address allowed to connect to the core via telnet/GUI/WEB
      for internal command set: list separated by spaces
      example for internal command: set allowed_ips "127.0.0.0/8 192.168.1.2"
      or for editing the ini-file: list separated by semi-colon
      example for ini-file: allowed_ips = [ "127.0.0.0/8"; "192.168.1.2";]
      CIDR and range notations are supported: ie use 192.168.0.0/24
      or 192.168.0.0-192.168.0.255 for 192.168.0.* *)
      allowed_ips = [
      "127.0.0.1";
      "192.168.1.0/24";]

      (* port for Graphical Interfaces, 0 to deactivate GUI interface *)
      (* changing this option requires restart of MLDonkey core *)
      gui_port = 4001


      done, you can start to test if MLDonkey start properly:

      Source Code

      1. service mldonkey-server start


      and check that is running

      Source Code

      1. service mldonkey-server status


      3 - you can access to your mldonkey server using Sancho client or use others: mldonkey.sourceforge.net/Gui

      only need to configure IP of your NAS or his HostName ( BNAS in my case), you do not need to modify enything more.

      and thats all.



      Final note:
      In my case I do not like default incoming and temp folders of ml-donkey so I do a simlink to my temp&downlad dedicated HD:

      Display Spoiler
      ln -s /media/f48892aa-780d-43b8-8ba4-a2e128d5829e/Descargas/incoming /var/lib/mldonkey

      ln -s /media/f48892aa-780d-43b8-8ba4-a2e128d5829e/tmp/temp /var/lib/mldonkey



      PD: My downloads.ini file for comparation pourpouses:

    • 2017.05.07 actualization. since ver 3.0.71 or so ( I test on 3.0.74) Mounts are done in /srv/

      So if you need to execute the "ln" command, must be like this:

      Display Spoiler

      ln -s /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data/Descargas/incoming /var/lib/mldonkey

      ln -s /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data/temp /var/lib/mldonkey


      Of course, your Data disk must be dev-disk-by-label-Data and folder /Descargas/incoming and /temp must exist on your data disk
