Bootstrap Server

Postby kieranmullen » 06 Jun 2010 08:41

I had one setup years ago. Any clues how I can set one up again? I have some free servers.

For the Gnutella2 network?
You can either run a GWC, such as the beacon cache, or you can run Sharelin (an UNIX G2 client), which allows operation as an UKHL, which is a type of network bootstrap.

If you intend to run your server for a longer time with the type of bootstrap you choose, you can post the address here and it will be included into the next version of Shareaza.

In Shareaza, "Discovery services" page, i have only one server with type "Gnutella Bootstrap" and uhc: prefix in its address:

Isn't this wrong to have only one server? I searched and found only one page that mentions some more bootstrap servers with uhc:

Shareaza: Gnutella1 connection fix

1) Delete bad hosts:
a) Hit F8 to open the Host Cache
b) Click "G1 cache"
c) Highlight all hosts, right-click, and select "Remove"

2) Refill the hosts cache:
a) Hit F9 to open the Discovery Services window
b) Highlight all the entries labeled "Bootstrap," right-click, and select "Remove"
c) New "Bootstrap" entries will appear. Right-click them one by one and select "Query Now"
d) Repeat steps b and c if the host cache stays empty

3) If Shareaza only finds "empty" bootstrap services:
a) Right-click in the Discovery Services window and select "Add Service"
b) Add one (or all) of these (make sure to select Gnutella Bootstrap from the dropdown menu):
or pick one or more "uhc" URLs from*checkout*/shareaza/trunk/Data/DefaultServices.dat (Working link - ... rvices.dat)

or add one (or all) of these (make sure to select GWebCache from the dropdown menu):
c) Right-click the new entries and select "Query Now"

# U = BootStrap (uhc, ukhl, gnutella1 host, gnutella2 host)

On Discovery Services page i have bunch of other servers with type "G2 GWebCache" and a few with "G1 GWebCache", but the Bootstrap one is well ahead of others in "Accesses" count, so it seems to be necessary. Thank you
