MLDonkey 2.9.6

A patched version of MLDonkey has been compiled. Check out MLDonkey 2.9.6 (max_bt_uploaders patched).

MLDonkey releases will now be packaged for fonz’s fun_plug (0.5) to ease the installation process. 3 variants of the compilation would be made available:

  1. mldonkey lite – supports filetp, bittorrent
  2. mldonkey normal – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey
  3. mldonkey full – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey, directconnect, fasttrack


Download the necessary package and place it on Volume_1 of your NAS (DNS-343, DNS-323, DNS-313). Telnet to your NAS and type the following commands

/ # cd /mnt/HD_a2
/mnt/HD_a2 # funpkg -i mldonkey-2.9.6-lite.tgz
Installing package mldonkey-2.9.6-lite …

Running mldonkey

To run mldonkey, simply issue the command “/ffp/start/ start”.

/mnt/HD_a2 # /ffp/start/ start
Starting mlnet

MLDonkey takes some time to setup the necessary files. Default download directory has been set to “/mnt/HD_a2/mldonkey” or simple the mldonkey folder in Volume_1.

To make MLDonkey auto-run on reboot, simply issue the following command

/mnt/HD_a2 # chmod a+x /ffp/start/

Configuring MLDonkey if you are running it for the first time

You would need to configure the settings so you can access the web interface. Execute the following commands.

/mnt/HD_a2 # telnet 4000
