Click on "Add to eMule" next to one of the nodes.dat links.
You should now have some Kad nodes and be able to connect.
When i add nodes.dat, after awhile everything disapear and i'm again at the begining....But always is KAD with yellow arrow....
Does anyone know why is this happening?
Do you have usually have high ID? Do you ever get a green arrow?
Ok so i have a question on KAD. I have only started using it this week. Basically this is what i did to connect. I connected to eDonkey Server No2 and im on High ID. I then started downloading a few files and then clicked on KAD. I then click on the "from known clients" button and then Connect. From this point on am i supposed to disconnect from the ed2k network? Im failing to fully understand this im afraid. I have read numerous threads about it but not sure how KAD helps. Can someone explaing in leymans (sp) terms how it improves my downloads etc?
Kad will not improve your downloads or make them faster. (Well, in a way, yes, because some people, like me, only use Kad)
You don't have to disconnect from servers, you can be connected to both Kad and servers at the same time.
Kad is just a server free network, in effect, you are the server.
Searches are slower, sources are usually better ( no fake results) and it's considered "safer."
Kad periodically stops being "connected" on my pc, most notably after a period of inactive downloads. No matter which nodes.dat file I download from online (like the ones mentioned in this thread above), Kad will not connect immediately. However, I could come back a few hours later and everything will be fine.
Anyhow, I have another PC where Kad is working. Can I bootstrap from the working PC's IP, and if so, which port do I specify: TCP or UDP?
Hi Guys sorry to sound thick but i cant seem to be able to connect to the Kad network
I have eMULE Plus v1.2b and i had it on my previous version of emule
Im talking about on the lower right of the transfer window where it shows the server your connected to but in the past i was able to connect also to Kad
On the older versions of emule it allows you to connect to kad by putting the tick in the box
I also have a low id and ive tried all that botstrap stuff and still no luck
Any ideas for Mr Thick or am i a lost cause
eMule Plus v1.2b does not have support for the Kad network.
Hi Stoepsel"]... thanks for your reply
I never knew about that
How can i go return to emule v0.49 without loosing what i am currently downloading
and then there is my LOW ID
Is eMule Plus v1.2b better than the lower versions
Is there an easy way of getting to a HI ID
Sorry for all the questions,but im as thick as two short planks...
Thanks in advance
eMule Plus 1.2b is actually based on a very old and outdated version of the official eMule. In a lot of respects, eMule Plus is inferior to the official eMule.
This guide should help you install eMule and continue your unfinished downloads:

For help with your low ID, please add a reply in this topic: viewtopic.php?f=97&t=84719
Ah ha ur a genius. Thanks
Now on my list is to fix my LOW ID..So here goes
Id say this might take time..Thanks so far...
Thanks for that
i tried clicking on "add emule" all three links but i keep getting the following:
and KAD keeps saying KAD:Connecting
Curious. The links work for me. Are you using an IP blocker? Are you connected to a server?
Hope someone answer to this one since the last post on this thread is Sept.2009...anyway, I am having a low ID in KAD a couples of days already, since the server always kicks me out, Emule is getting blindfolded. This started since I installed ESET Buisiness Edition and TuneUp 2011. TuneUp got my connection way up high and better (nice software) but, I'm not sure either the ESET or TuneUp made my KAD low ID. I got no problem with Server but KAD stays yellow. Server and KAD was always green before the ESET and TuneUp install...Any help on this one? Thanks!
In all probability, it is ESET. What you need not do is worry too much about it as you try to correct the problem. Even with low ID, your mule will still work fine though it will not be able to connect to other low ID clients. I have been using low ID on free wi-fi for the past 6 months (no home Internet) and haven't had any trouble
I have never used ESET, but if it has firewalling features or functions, I would look into that first.
PS: Just remembered when I tried TuneUp... TuneUp will warn you if you do not have a firewall, anti-virus software, etc. operating on your computer. It will also recommend that you enable the Windows firewall when you investigate the warning. If you enabled that, it could also be the cause of the problem.
Wow, been a while since this thread was used.
Long story short. Huge problem with my PC right now, so just in case, I am trying to re-download some of the programs I use. Anyways, I set up emule the same way it was setup before. But, no matter what I do KAD is stuck on "connecting". I have a high ID, just no KAD. Tried downloading Nodes, they showed up in the KAD window, but it's still stuck on connecting. Any thoughts?
It is most likely a firewall issue.... either your PC or your Router.
Oh for.....and the fun keeps coming. Do not use a router, and Yea, I know I should. It's on the "to buy" list. Looked into the firewall, and eMule is authorized. Just on my Home network, not Public and as far as I remember that is the way it was before.
Are the ports forwarded properly?
Have you tried to Use UPnP to Setup Ports in your eMule connections settings to do this for you?
is KAD down for everybody??
Not connecting ....
No it's not.
I have High ID.
You might want to restart your eMule and maybe even your PC.
Also, you might want to check your ports as well.
Reset computer!! and up and running!!
You are welcome.
It happened to me as well, a reset solved the problem!!
Nothing like a short rest to refresh.
I can't log onto KAD. I've tried all three download options from Nodes.dat but they fail to download and the KAD Contacts list fails to populate.
This has happened previously but it usually resolves itself after a couple of days. However, this time it's been a week. eD2K is connected with a High ID.
choose > Download live nodes.dat ....then close your emule and put the downloaded nodes.dat in the emule config folder..... restart your emule and connect.
