All edonkey newbies, or people having probs connecting should probably visit Gowenna's Page at http://gowenna.da.ru

Check out the articles section, beginners guide to using edonkey.

i agree edonkey is slow but it does come in useful if your downloading a game from a pub which dies u can find the rar files u was missing most of the time fairly easy

I've been using edonkey for several weeks. Once in a while it will not connect to any servers. I fix this problem by replacing the "server.met" file with a new one, such as this one http://members.home....2000/server.met
and this has worked every time. In the Edonkey forums the consensus seems to be that the server.met file gets too big and you end up with too many open internet connections or something. I don't understand it exactly, but it sounds like edonkey opens a connection (or several?) for each server on the list.

Ok guys..I do agree that Edonkey can be slow..and the connection is bad somtimes...but heres the thing. Go here: http://www.sharereactor.com/ and read over the info guide on Edonkey...then go here: http://members.home....2000/server.met
and replace your server.met file.
I use to hate edonkey...and would never use it...but now with the reactor guide and the replacment of my server.met file, i always connect and get a decent if not good download speeds.
thankx for all the help with edonkey...IT ACTUALLY WORKS now!

I used this, and it opened up the command prompt window, says its fetching an updated server.met from http://234.234 whatever.

After 5 seconds edonkey opens, but the command prompt window stays open. Should I close it manually or not? I had to close it when it stayed like that for 5-10 minutes.
