MLDonkey cannot connect to private bittorrent trackers?

You may find that your MLDonkey bittorrent client cannot connect to private bittorrent site’s trackers. You would probably realize that MLDonkey is not one of the supported bittorrent clients on these private bittorrent sites.

What you can do is to edit BT-user_agent to other supported clients like utorrent (uTorrent/1700), azureus, etc.

To change your BT user agent, simply login to your MLDonkey adminstration page. Go to the Options. Under the plugins drop-down list, select BitTorrent and change the BT-user_agent field.

    Other issue is that 2.9.2 and maybe other versions have problems with reporting amounts of seeded data to the tracker, which lead to low ratios 🙁

    Maybe you know some workaround for this also?

    M@XiMuM, unfortunately I don’t have solution to this if mldonkey doesn’t report the correct stop bits.

    I’ve try this, to download on private tracker, but still have the “Try another client to connect” message 🙁

    Have you another idea to solve that?

    Thanks for all your work!
