mldonkey-server - Installation notes

# install it
apt-get install mldonkey-server

# make a symlink to config
ln -s /var/lib/mldonkey /etc/mldonkey

# stop the service as it holds the config files
service mldonkey-server stop

# open /etc/mldonkey/downloads.ini in a text editor, for example
jed /etc/mldonkey/downloads.ini

# allow access - check the allowed_ips line, change it to your local network range
# or a specific ip to allow to connect
# for example:

allowed_ips = [

# specify download directory
# mldonkey uses shared directories to specify where
# downloads called incoming files are stored. it uses two - one
# for downloaded files and one for downloaded directories

# this cannot be changed in the web interface due to a bug
# which prevents specifying the same directory for both
# (which should work), so you may do it also in downloads.ini

# go to the shared_directories line and edit the dirname parameter
# two times:

 shared_directories = [
  {     dirname = "/where/to/download"
     strategy = incoming_files
     priority = 0
  {     dirname = "/where/to/download"
     strategy = incoming_directories
     priority = 0

# if not specifying, the files will go into subdirs in /var/lib/mldonkey/incoming

# start it again
service mldonkey-server start

# goto http://server-ip:4080/
# you will be prompted to enter a new password, type the following into 
# the textfield on the top: useradd admin password
# in the popup, type the new desired password

# if you need to change password again, type passwd admin, and in
# the textbox enter a new password

# you may also telnet to the server, telnet server-ip 4000, do then write ? to get info
