1. Start Emule. (If you don’t know how to start Emule, don’t bother continue)

Important: If you get a screen like the one shown below, when you start Emule, then click on Cancel.

2. Click on Options (Top right Corner)

3. Click on Connection
4. Do the settings as I have, except your download and upload capacities.
5. Download and upload capacities should be what your connection is:
Type in what fit to your connection, both in upload and in download. Use the numbers below.

Important: You should only use 80 % of your upload speed. To find out what 80 % of your upload speed is do this: “upload” * 0.80 = result.
Example: 32 kb/s. * 0,80 = 26 kb/s

56 kbit. = 6 kB/s.
64 kbit. = 8 kB/s.
128 kbit. = 16 kB/s.
256 kbit. = 32 kB/s.
512 kbit. = 64 kB/s.
1 mbit. = 124 kB/s.
2 mbit. = 248 kB/s.
3 mbit. = 372 kB/s.
4 mbit. = 496 kB/s.
5 mbit. = 620 kB/s.
6 mbit. = 744 kB/s.
7 mbit. = 868 kB/s.
8 mbit. = 992 kB/s.
9 mbit. = 1116 kB/s.
10 mbit. = 1240 kB/s.
20 mbit. = 2480 kB/s.
100 mbit = 12400 kB/s.

Servers and ed2k links

1. Open Emule.
2. Copy and paste this:

Code: Select all

into "Update server.met from URL" and click on the Update button

3. Close down Emule.
4. Open Emule. Emule should now automatically connect to a random server but not KAD.

5. Click on the "Users" tab.

6. Double-click on DonkeyServer No2.

7. If you are connected to the server, this message will appear in the right low corner.

If not. This message will appear. Then please chose another server.

8. Click on this link: test.cue  [78 Bytes]

9. Click on the Transfers button.

9. If the Testfile is showing, your Emule client is working, and you can now click on any ed2k link on this site and download it. If not, you have done something wrong and you need to start over.

NOTE: The KAD network does not work until you either have restarted the client after having downloading something for at least 5 minutes, or clicked on the "KAD" button and then the “bootstrap” button, after having downloading something at least 5 minutes.
