2019 UPDATE: please install in docker using this guide instead in the O.S. base.
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: http://terminal28.com/mldonkey…-p2p-debian-ubuntu-linux/
1- open a shell , I use putty, you can use others , type
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
Locate allowed_ips and add your LAN in this format x.x.x.0/24
(* 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 = [
(* 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:
and check that is running
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.
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:
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:
