Ip Tools

Those who know me will know very well that mine is not the organization, not at least in the long term :-p

I finally found an application that groups me 15 network utilities, to monitor and manage.

I remember that I always had each one on one side, several port scanners, tracers, nukeers … I mostly used the ones that came with the Phanatic (what time those).

Now with Ip Tools you can have: Local Info, Connection Monitor, NetBIOS Scanner, Shared resources scanner, Hostname Scanner, Port Scanner, Ping Scanner, Trace, NS LookUp, Finger, WhoIs, Get Time, Telnet client, IP-Monitor, and Host Display.

Until now I used Languard, with Ip tools I will complement it.

Again lost ..

Next week starts again lost! by chapter 7 of the third season … the truth is that lately I’m hooking a lot to the series, the first was smallville (currently 6th season in the USA), then lost (3rd season in USA) and now prison break (2nd season in USA). Others that filled me a lot were The Sield, Gurdia Turn (I can not find it anywhere to buy it), CSI, Los hombres de paco, Central Hospital and lately I start to look at Supernatural and The Unit.

Ale a funny video made by the real lost actors, it’s worth it 😉

Crackeado el DRM by Windows Vista

Recall that one of the great news of windows vista, which has taken a lot of time and money has been the DRM protection for original contents it contains.

This protection prevents illegal content from being copied with anticopy restriction and rights management, Windows Vista verifies that the hardware used to reproduce it guarantees those restrictions and in case it does not, it will prevent its correct reproduction. It also encrypts the content when it is sent from one device to another to avoid copying it, even within the same computer.

Well, two days before its launch, it was announced that someone had managed to crack it, so much time and money invested at all?

In the end I move to Flickr

In the end, since I was bored at noon, I decided to give Flickr a chance.

The function I did the other day to get a thumbnail of my picasa pictures on my page, also works for Flickr and with the same result, you get the photos correctly but their quality is very low when you do not resize them correctly.

When I created the account in flickr and upload some images, the first thing I saw was that I offered to place a presentation of my photographs, but I only wanted the last 4 and in thumbnail.

From the api of flickr for php that you can download from here, I made some modifications to be able to obtain the images as I wanted, the result, to the right of the blog 😉

So from now on the images of this blog will be hosted on Flickr.

My first Trojan

Cleaning CDs, I found one with some programs that I did not even remember their existence, little things that I programmed to “fuck”, for example a net bomber that what I did was send net sends continuously. I used it in the university, before they could cover it, because when a computer received a message, an alert sounded, because sending 500 followed produced a very curious serenade 😛

Another thing that I was very excited to find was a Trojan that programmed in visual basic. It was the time when the Ptkks that was the only undetectable Trojans stopped working, its creators (putoamo.net) two Valencians if I do not understand, they left the project, this forced everyone to go to the subseven, the other great known, making any antivirus recognize it.
That is why I created my own, using Winsock, as main features, I could highlight that it turned the victim’s computer into an “FTP server” to be able to mess with your files at will and even download them to my computer.

It also had a keylogger in real time, or stored it for later send it to the mail. I could see their processes, finish them, create screen captures and send them to my computer .. I even programmed a web server for the infected client to connect and leave their ip, so I did not have to try to get it out every time I wanted to enter.

The executable generated an entry in the registry to be able to run at each computer startup and was hidden in the process console to avoid being terminated.

Anyway 🙂 I remember those, I would like to make / finish a / the Trojan, but nowadays I do not have time for anything anymore.

I GPS, freeing MY 268


Click here to release a GPS MIO MOOV.

To install TomTom 6 or 7 in a PDA with WINCE 5.0 / 4.2 or in a GPS MIO 268 (+) / 269 (+) go to this forum, I think that everything is more organized and people can make improvements in a more simple as well as to anticipate the doubts.

To install MioMap v3 stay on this page and follow the instructions.

Well, it seems that several friends have already asked me about GPS’s, which ones to buy, which is better, if you have radars … etc etc

The first thing is to understand that there are different things to buy. On the one hand you can buy a radar detector, simply by plugging it into the car you will be notified of places where the DGT has made a radar public, or even places where they have ever been, this device is completely legal, but it does not work tell us roads

On the other hand if you have a PDA or a cell phone enabled for it, you can buy a card (Flash, SD, ..) GPS or a GPS device by infrared or bluetooth and so you take advantage of your “mobile device” to convert it into GPS. You will need to install a cartography program with which you can use GPS, the most used in these cases is the TomTom. (There are free alternatives to the TomTom but leave much to be desired).

In this case you can also install free programs to calculate the kilometers traveled, the average consumption, speed …

The last possibility is to buy a GPS that brings everything in one device, GPS Antenna + Software.

If I had to buy a GPS right now I would see if I want it only for the radars (Warning, much cheaper) or for directions.
In the case that I want it for indications, if apart I want to introduce the radars I would opt for one of the TomTom model (much simpler to add POI’s), but if I want it for quality, I would certainly erect a MIO (Something more complicated to introduce radars, explained below).
Something that would also take into account is that it had SD cards, MMC .. it is always easier to update maps and POIS’s in this way (as long as our computer has a card reader)

And finally I would also notice that it had bluetooth with what we would gain a hands-free for the car 🙂

The same one prefers to wait for Galileo.

In my case, I have an MIO 268 plus, the kings gave it to me last year 🙂
The truth is that I am very happy, the software that comes with it, is the MioMap v2.0, although version 3 has already come out, you can see an example of it here.

Obviously to update maps in most GPS you have to pay.

The different programs to manage a GPS antenna (TomTom, MioMap, …) depends on each one, it is best to try them all and choose which one we like the most, for example I love how the MioMap guides me, in addition to clear maps and simple, on the contrary, many people prefer the TomTom (the best known).
What is the problem with my browser? Well when I went to put the radars as POIs (Points of interest) I would not allow it, the only solution they gave me was to download a payment program to put them, and after spending 400 euros I was not going to pay more to get the radars.

Mine 268 is based on Windows CE and what it does when it is turned on is to load a program by default, where it lets you access the browser, settings, contacts .. but it does not allow you to mess anything else out of that, so I decided to get out of that program and to be able to accede to the folders of the navigator to put the radars to “hair”.

This process took me some weeks, I found several pages that indicated how to do something similar but not for the same model as mine and many others but in French (I gave German in school) so I did not know much.

Note: If these steps do not work for you, there is another alternative solution at the end of the article.

I will try to remember how I did it since it was more than a year ago:

  1. The first thing is to download these files
    1. Zip to liberalize
    2. Zip with the original content (just in case)
  2. We put in an SD card (we will call it TARJETALIBRE) the content of the Zip to liberalize.
  3. We take out the MIO card and introduce the new card, TARJETALIBRE, into the gps.
  4. We turn on / configure / select language / select English
    1. If you do not see the English language you can do several things, first, if you have the CD that came with the GPS, put it on your computer, connect your gps via the cable to the computer and install following the menus of the CD English language .
    2. Another alternative would be, in case we had more languages other than Spanish, but none in English, access our MIO card and enter the language folder, there we would choose any other than Spanish and copy their name, for example, let’s say we have two languages, “espanol20Cab” and “frances25Cab”, then we would copy the name frances25Cab.
    3. Now we would go to the content of TARJETALIBRE, we would look for the file that contained in the name something of “english” and we would change the name for “frances25Cab”
      We would introduce TARJETALIBRE in our GPS, we would go to language selection and we would select the one that we would have changed, in this case, French.
  • It will give us an error (it is normal) since we are not loading any language, changing the configuration of beginning and ending the program, so we do not worry and we give it to ok, this will cause the GPS to restart appearing already on the desktop of the Windows CE.
  • Now we run the windows explorer, we go to our SD card, to the Installation folder and we execute the Customio and the Nico85ActiveSync
  • NOTE: to be able to execute, if you do not know how to do it by clicking on the circle button while having the window active, it will be valid.
  • Now we will import the registry, go to MioregEdit (on the desktop) File / Import Registry / My document / CustoMio /mio.reg
  • We restart by inserting the pencil into the reset button on the side (not the back of the GPS)
  • When starting, it will tell us if we want to install the bananaPC program, we will say yes and we will restart again.
  • We install ActiveSync on the computer.
  • We connect the GPS via the cable to the computer
  • We run the windows explorer / windows / USB transfer
  • We downloaded the Gapi program.
  • We run the ActiveSync on the computer, click on explore and look for the .exe that came in the Zip of Gapi, we executed it.
  • Now that we have Gapi installed, we downloaded the MioMap v3 and the maps and put it on the same card directly.
  • We run the GAPI and look for the configuration for “MIO 269 Digiwalker CE 4.2 320 × 240”
  • We turn on the GPS and run the windows explorer, go to our SD card and run the miomap.exe

Well after all this I went to the MioMap folder to add my POIs which I could not because it brings everything within the same file, maps and pois (in the tomtom it is different, each one by its side).

So over time I have no choice but to buy the TomTom and install it on my GPS.
Although the GPS was another brand having liberalized (this is like mobile phones) I can do what I want.

Right now I use the MioMap to navigate, since I like its plans and indications, and the tomtom to warn me about the radars. I also use it as MP3 for the car (it has a 1GB SD card and player) and at home 😀 and I also install an image viewer.

What I did in the car was to fix it, I created a device to have it fixed in an empty hole in the front, I connected it to the cassette so that I could hear it through the car’s speakers and when I had to charge it I used the cigarette lighter (it would be another connector) for the lighter and leave it fixed, but at the moment I’m not interested).

This way I use it where I want and how I want it, image viewer, MP3 player of 1 GB (for home and for the car), radar warning, GPS navigator … and any program that can be installed in a pocket PC.

New version of MioMap v3.2

The new version is now available, you can get it here, and the maps from here.

To install it you will only have to overwrite the files of the version 3.0 and change the icon of home, it is not the IGO now it is the orange of MioMap v3.2.

PS: This version already includes the radars in the MioMap !!

PD2: If you want the maps of the rest of Europe, you can download them from here, although first you will have to download the MioMapDecode program, extract it in the same folder as the downloaded maps (.fbl format) and run Decodedmaps.bat, with this you will create a folder called Mapsdecoded and that will contain all the maps ready to be inserted in our SD card.

Map Download: Spain
If someone gives you problems from this page (in Italian) they explain in more detail how to decode the maps. (thanks to DavidM)

PD3: Finally we must change the gxold.dll of our SD and take it to the windows folder of our gps, and with the gx.dll of the windows folder take it to our SD card (where was the gxold.dll) run and go! (If we do not do this step it is possible that when running the MioMap 3 we will not see anything and leave the program.

Update of MioMap v3.2 radars

To update our radars we will only need to update our POIupdates.upd file, which is located on the memory card in MioMap / miotc / pois, this file can be downloaded in two ways:

1- From the Todo-Poi page with this direct link (remember, the igo.db is not necessary to write it)

2- Cbolumar radars, download them from here.
– The access password is: cbolumar
– The file to be downloaded will be the CBOLUMAR-Robser_ (date) .rar (download the most recent)
– To obtain radars in the rest of Europe we can download the file SpeedCams.mtc

In both we can see the dates of the last update, so we will download the most recent one, we will be able to consult these pages with periodicity and when changes are seen download the files.

These files are available thanks to the effort made by people like those of Todo-poi, cbolumar and a lot of other people, to all of them many thanks.

Notes taken from forum cars on radar warnings in the MioMap v3

PD1: The radars icons are shown and hidden along with the names of the streets on the map.

PD2: The radar warnings DO NOT WORK in the “Overfly” or “Simulation” mode.

PD3: The radars in the MioMap are NOT managed as if they were POIS as the TT does, they are simply radars, and they are activated where it is put in message No. 1

Installing the TomTom 6 in the MIO 268+

For those who want more, we can install the TomTom 6 in our MIO, for it we will have to download it and insert it in our SD card.

From our GPS we will go to that folder, enter 2577 and execute the ttn.

Once this is done we have already installed the TomTom in our GPS, to make it work, we must make a link to the executable that has been created in My Computer \ Program Files \ Navigator to be able to execute it from the desktop.

The next thing is to create a folder called tomtom inside My Computer / TomTom and inside it we will put all the voices that we have in the folder voices inside the tomtom of our SD card.

Finally we must change the gxold.dll of our SD and take it to the windows folder of our gps, and with the gx.dll of the windows folder take it to our SD card (where was the gxold.dll) run and go!

PS: We’ll need the maps for TomTom but .. it will not work 😛

PD2: To install the radars, download them with the TomTom format and put them in the map folder, then you will have to activate them from the GPS as POIS, putting sounds, warning time ..

PD3: To configure GPS, you must select from among all GPS: “TomTom GPS receiver with cable”.

Alternative steps to release the GPS MIO 268+

In case you can not release my GPS through the steps above, here we offer (thanks to QUIQUE) some alternative steps.

  1. Download the customio.zip
  2. Insert the CD that comes with the Mio (ApplicationCD) and copy it to the PC hard drive.
  3. On the PC copy go to Install / Contacts / and change “Contacts.exe” to “ContactsMIO.exe”.
  4. Customio.cab that is in Customio.zipToutauto / 268 /, we copy it in the copy of the PC in Install / Contacts /.
  5. Install the Mio Transfer if you do not have it installed. Let’s put the card in the GPS (1Gb) empty.
  6. Connect the Mio 268 to the PC with the USB cable.
  7. In the copy of the PC you execute “Autorun.exe” press Ok.
  8. Press the “Install” in the middle, install something press Ok.
  9. Unplug the USB cable, the menu will appear press the 3rd option, once pressed enter the “Contacts” page press the contact program and perform a reset for two seconds (with the pointer, just below the headphone output) ( NEVER PUT THE EYELASH OF THE REAR PART OFF, THAT WILL ERASE EVERYTHING AND YOU WILL HAVE TO START AGAIN).
  10. Once restarted, the “BananaPC” program will be installed when finished, press Ok and reset.
  11. We take the SD card from the Mio and put it in the card reader of the PC, inside it we put the program Nico85ActiveSync.cab and we put it in the Mio again, we look for the program that is in Windows / SDcard / and we install it will come out one more icon on the desktop.
  12. Now on Mio’s desktop, open “gsExplorer”, look for the folder “MyDocumentes” and in the “CustoMio” folder there are several files, press twice “RegEdit, exe”, a window will open, click on “File” and click Import . Look inside the same folder where is the RegEdit (MyDocumentes / Customio) the file “mioreg” and import it. Close the RegEdit and do a reset.
  13. Enter Windows again and look for a file called “USBTransfer”. Connect the USB cable and select it. On the PC a window opens, click on the
  14. explorer and we look for the GAPI program, we execute it. In the Mio’s desktop the GAPI icon is opened, in Device set we look for the line that says
  15. “MioDigiWalker269,320 × 240” we select, accept, save and exit.
    We already have all the programs installed, we clean the Mio desktop, open “gsExplorer” open the Windows folder and the desktop folder and delete the icons that are not needed, we leave the others in favorites.

Back up to avoid having to do the whole process again

Thanks to Javi, we have the program, Backup Manager, with which we can make a backup of our gps mine, and so when the battery runs out and we lose all the configuration we can reset it in a simple way.

The instructions for use, are in a .txt within the rar that contains the program, I hope it is useful and I just have to thank Javi for his collaboration 🙂

Wceusbsh.sys file error

This error message is generated only on computers that use the Microsoft Wceusbsh.sys driver and the ActiveSync 3.1 to synchronize a Windows CE-based device with the host computer. This problem has been noticed only on legacy-free computers (computers with no COM port or no ISA board bus slots).

Try installing the latest version of ActiveSync or try connecting the GPS from another computer (a friend)

The end-of-career work was a web service created with jdeveloper in Java that simulated a bulletin board where you connected and you could retrieve your messages or send messages to other people in the network. In this link you have an outline of the work.


These days, I leave home at 9 in the morning to go to the library and do not return until 8 at night (I do not want to say that I studied all that time xD).

Uff that bad life, the only thing that encourages me is that I have to take the car to go to the library, yes, there are closer, yes, my faculty is in the center, but .. I WANT TO DRIVE! In addition, this is studied much better 😀

Now there are only two exs, SO and ADO, when they finish to continue with the scholarship that is not that it has taken a long time …

This is a map of the city of Salamanca that I need for the scholarship, I had to go to the local police and they gave me this piece of paper (it occupies the same as my bed), it is not that I am too big, but not even to walk loaded with all this, I took a photo with a lot of resolution and I take in the pen drive 😛

This is the second year that I have received a grant in a technological project, last year we worked on a research grant on the presentation of content on mobile devices and as a practical application of the scholarship, the “AQUI” project of the university.

It consisted of a “GPS” inside the university, it told you how to get to the sites, cafeteria, exit, faculties … showing besides maps indications.

This application was a single one, and could be accessed from computers, PDAs, mobile phones … (that was the research work, the same content for different devices)
The photos correspond to the presentation in the class room of last year’s scholarship.

Adsense only in Spanish

Looking for tips and tricks for adsense I came across a curious article on how to get adsense ads appear only in Spanish.

The first thing I thought was that I have never had this problem, that is, my ads have always appeared in Spanish, I have never had them in another language, but the same can be due to the structure of the page, meta …

The fact is that in several forums an email is shown in response to a query to the adsense group

“Also, in order for us to better target Google ads for the content of your pages, you must use a version of our ad code that includes a slight modification. Please insert the following line of JavaScript in your current AdSense ad code:

google_language = ‘is’;

Insert this code into a new line above the line of the current code that starts with:

// ->

Note that this ad code should only be used on pages whose content is mostly in Spanish. If you have any questions or problems regarding this code, please notify us. ”

Does it seem easy, right? The worst of all is that in some places the possibility is mentioned that this is not legal, and that according to the terms and conditions of use the Adsense code can not be modified.

When the stars go blue

From soylopeor I could see this video of the song “When the stars go blue” I loved the way to sing it, because this version is the original Ryan Adams, but above all I liked the video of the taxi driver touring New York .. what memories …

Another site to measure the popularity of a website

It seems that the sites that “analyze your page” in search of a measurement to be able to compare the “popularity” of your website with respect to others, now it’s pupuri’s turn, I hope you like it.


Looking through the statistics of my blog, I noticed a visit to the page abrelaboca.com, surprised (I do not know who could link from that page to my blog) I followed the link and this has taken me to its statistics panel.

Apparently and to my astonishment I am the 8 page that most visits sent them 🙂 the first is the direct access with more than 300,000 visits.

Visits graphic.

From what I have been able to verify from this blog, 1,312 visits have been made to its page. On top of it, the forum of my dearest Tito Torbe and to my amazement below, google!

PS: The graph is constantly updated, today I have uploaded one position.

In Turkey, too

If a few days ago I was posting a news about restricted access to the internet in Cuba, today it is the turn of Turkey, where they have blocked access to any wordpress.com blog. Freedom of expression?

Gtalk curiosities

Some curiosities about Google-Talk, the strongest alternative to messenger.

Block traffic to your web page

Although it is not normal, at certain times we may be interested in blocking traffic from certain sites, more specific, from certain countries.

For this, Geodetector has been invented, after indicating a level we will have to enter a code in the header of our page.

Des genbeta inform us of the levels of this application

  • Minimum: Blocks access from Albania, Belarus, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Congo, Croatia, Czech Republic, Ghana, Herzegovina, Hungary, Indonesia, North Korea, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia, Micronesia, Moldova, Montenegro, Niger, Nigeria , Northern Kenya, Pakistan, Palestine (Occupied Territories), Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Sudan and Ukraine.
  • International: Allows access only from the United States, Canada, Jamica, Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands, United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Iceland, Sweden, Italy, City from the Vatican, Luxembourg, Portugal, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
  • English: Allows access only where English is the predominant language: United States, Canada, Jamica, Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
  • USA and Canada: It allows receiving traffic from these two countries.
  • USA only: Allows only traffic within the US
  • United Kingdom: Only allow traffic from the United Kingdom and Ireland.
  • United Kingdom PLUS: Only allows traffic from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
  • Europe: Allows traffic from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Iceland, Sweden, Italy, Vatican City, Luxembourg and Portugal.

I would like to know the message that indicates when someone is not allowed to pass, although surely with a proxy located in some of the countries within the allowed ones could be accessed.

Another thing would be to block all access via proxy since you would not know your country of origin.

Special day

I just realized that in the counter of unique visits of the page appears today, the 17th, twice, why? I have no idea, as I decided some time ago to use an external script to generate it now I do not know why this happens, and honestly, I do not even have time to find out.

At the moment I’ll wait for tomorrow, will it be 18 on two occasions? that intrigues .. the same or sleep xD

April Fair (Salamanca)

As I told the other day, when the week of the April fair was held in Salamanca, as when I was not able to drink anything, I took the next day to go down without a car.

The result was about 10 rebujitos, that’s how we ended up … well, that’s how I ended up. The thing is not that it was to drink, but rebujito + skewer were 1.50 and the rebujito was death!

The fact is that again Javi was working there and behaved beautifully, we filled the table with spikes and everything without paying anything, in fact, I had bought a bonus of 10 euros to spend there and ended up leaving me money.

With desire of the year that comes to be able to repeat.

Betting pages

I recently read that they have arrested several people related to the attack on an online betting company.

The good thing is that the assailants were the owners and workers of another company in the same sector.

The problem was that they deleted important information from the affected company through SQL injection attacks causing costs that amounted to about 18,000 euros, I believe.

The SQL injection is no mystery, anyone can prepare huge destruction without much knowledge, the thing is to try .. and as proof of this is that the “assailants” did all this directly from the headquarters of your company, so the The police did not have many problems in identifying them.

Someone who pretends to do something like that and does not want to be caught, would have entered from a public place, using proxies, anonymous networks, but not from his place of work and with his ip exposed.

It is best not to do anything, and if you do take care to say it, if not, look at what has happened to a US student. that without computer knowledge he accessed some internal servers of the institute where he studied, when he went to communicate it to the people in charge of the computer center so that they solved the problem, they denounced him and he faces a trial.


In the release section of the GPS mio 268 I added a new section of radars, updated to date of 04.13 07 to avoid scares with the purse and the points, although it would be better not to run .. and also new section to be able download the rest of the maps of europe.

Some comments have been added in the rest of the article to clarify certain things.

How to hunt the “bad guys” online

For some time the company responsible for the game “Dream Pinball 3D” threatened to sue all those who share this game by any p2p network, then, said and done, all those who shared it now face a trial for it.

And how did they know they had shared it?

They use a modified version of a P2P application configured to request the files to be traced. This monitoring application connects an exchange network, downloads a fragment of the files to be tracked and records the data (name and size of the file, IP address, P2P application used, time and user name) of the sources from which perform the download. The monitoring application itself performs a reverse whois search based on the IP address and obtains the Internet provider on which it depends, to which it sends a letter informing it of the alleged infraction. Subsequently, the collected data is sent to the judge so that he orders the provider to fully identify the user …

The defendants have already protested, first because the method to hunt them has been the same for which they have been accused, for sharing and second because they are only the owners of an internet connection and this does not mean that they were the ones who shared, in many cases there are wireless networks (or not) without protection and anyone has access.

Lack of professionals

In the last few days I have read some news in barrapunto or meneame that speak of the lack of informatics that is foreseen for the near future.

And honestly I do not miss anything, personally I have been able to see it in my own university, my promotion (from 2002/03) consists of about 120 people, this year in first they barely reach 30-40.

The computer is in the doldrums in our country, entrepreneurs do not know how to value our work, sometimes making comments such as:

  • It is striking that a director of HR says that the computer “[…] is a type of professional who values the project more than the salary.”

This is what happens when money is valued more than work, sadly a computer engineer who has studied 5 years and is offered 15,000 gross euros a year prefer to serve glasses to accept that job and even more in Spain where prices of the houses even the rents are only within the reach of a few.

Thanks to the labor intrusiveness (very widespread in the computer science) and to the almost inhuman offers of work to which some informatics are exposed, every time this race interests less, and as a consequence of it it will be the loss of professionals in our country.

The good ones will emigrate to countries where their effort is paid as they deserve and the companies that do not want to pay for a diploma or degree will end up suffering the consequences of not having adequate professionals.

But this situation … is it the fault of the companies? or the informatics …

Problemas con el Emule, Ares, Pando, Bittorrent …

We are starting to create a community on p2p in this forum, because we believe it is easier to group all the information about these programs and, above all, easier to help people solve their problems.

Perhaps one of the things that we find difficult to make work well in our computers are without a doubt the p2p clients, either because to work they require some correct configurations or because our ISP do not interest us to use them.

Surely the most known and used is currently the emule, so I will give some guidelines to make it work properly, improve its performance and get a faster download.

To begin, say that each computer is different from others then there will never be a pattern of “perfect” configuration.

The first factor that proportionally influences the download, is our bandwidth, nowadays we start to have acceptable speeds although we are still far behind those offered in other countries. If our computer is part of a network or if we have several programs that are using bandwidth this will slow down producing a slower download.

One thing to keep in mind is that we will never be able to take advantage of 100% of our connection, for each frame that we send over the Internet it is necessary to indicate the beginning and the end, which means two bits of each shipment that we will not be able to use. add the packet loss, the saturation of the network …

Programs such as antivirus or firewalls will delay the sending and receiving of packages, which will produce a slower download.

Those of us who use the router at home see the need to configure the ports beforehand, otherwise we expose ourselves to a low ID (lower download) or even to not download anything (we will see this because the icon appears blindfolded). Remember that as of service pack 2, Windows XP has an installed firewall by default.

For those who use service pack2 in XP, warn them that for security reasons Microsoft does not allow more than a certain number of outgoing TCP / IP connections, which will inevitably cause the emule to malfunction. For this you can use this patch that will allow us to customize how many connections we want.

Some routers have a firewall, in these cases it could be a good option to include our computer in a DMZ to avoid the transfer of packages through the firewall avoiding delays and in some other case saturate the router causing its forced restart. Be careful, our computer will not be protected in this case.

To avoid that our client p2p absorb all the connection and cause the malfunction of other programs some clients bring a programmer that increases the limit of download and upload when less use of the network we do (for example at night while the computer is not used ).

On the other hand, more and more the ISPs try to block the protocols used by eMule and CIA since they are not interested in the supersaturation of their networks. For this purpose, protocol obfuscators have been developed, the eMule incorporates it from version 0.47c avoiding the detection and interception of your downloads).

Some people have problems when trying to download large files (more than 4 GB) as I understand versions prior to 0.47a could not handle files of such size and of course if your partition is FAT32 you could not handle it either. The solution to format NTFS ” CONVERT C: / FS: NTFS “. Today, most data partitions support files of these sizes.

Remember that other factors that allow a high download are: the time we have connected (do not expect to download quickly anything else to connect), the number of sources of a download and its popularity (if the file is not shared, can not be downloaded) and Of course, the one we are sharing, if we do not share, we will not go down.

This is the philosophy of this type of networks “give and take” and although they have already released some projects that allow downloading eMule without sharing, the fact of using them would be throwing stones against our own roof, because if everyone used them it would be the end of these networks.

Personally I prefer the ares, but for tastes the colors 😛 finally tell you to be careful with what you download, always respecting the current law 🙂 and that many of the configurations explained here can endanger your computer.

Test to find out if your ISP blocks p2p traffic

You will finally know the truth! through this test we can check if your ISP blocks p2p traffic, because it is hosted on a single server is very likely that it is saturated, so we can also download the source code and run it locally from our computer.

When Ares does not connect

When our Ares does not connect it is possible that the protocols are not working correctly for whatever reason, therefore it would be convenient to test this resource.

First we must download this compressed file, which has the files that

will allow Ares to connect to the network and download normally.

Unzip the file and the extracted content we must copy it in
“C: \ Documents and Settings \ USER \ Local Settings \ Program Data \ Ares \ Data”, to which we must replace “USER” with the name of our user in Windows.

We paste and replace the existing files.

Patch for the Ares

If your Ares does not work properly, it is cut, the downloads do not start … try this patch, I have not needed it personally, but at least, it is not harmful to the system, it has been analyzed with virustotal and of 36 antivirus none has detected anything .

Speed up Bittorrent with ONO
Ono, is an application that allows using algorithms to detect similar downloads to accelerate the download speed of any torrent file that we download.

Ojo, Ono is a program and has nothing to do except the name with the Spanish company …

Other tips to increase the speed of Bittorrent

We must take into account a series of factors that help / damage our connection.

  • Limit upload speed: The explanation you gave for this advice is simple. Our connection is a tube, if it is at its maximum capacity, it will be obstructed.
  • Choose the maximum number of correct connections: The excess of connections can slow down the download of the torrent, instead of accelerating. In the μTorrent Speed Guide (Options – Speed Guide), it is suggested that for users with an upload connection higher than 256 kbits / sec, place 30 connections and 60 in total.
  • Run as few torrent numbers as possible: Less is more. Again the μTorrent Speed Guide suggests the optimal values, 2 torrents maximum for users that has a upload speed of 256 kbits / sec. In this way, our client takes advantage of the greatest number of connections.
