Hi Rarsa,

Here's what I've done - this morning.

1. Downloaded and ran the pupget for ctorrent 132.pup
2. ran the pupget and installed the ctorrent.

The following is the Xterm info...as you can see, I'm not sure what I'm doing here in any way..

just execute the following command:
Code:
ctorrent JMF.torrent


That will create a folder JMF with all the mentioned files inside.

Remember that you need to open the port in your firewall. If you are using a router, you need to forward the port to your puppy computer.

Check the documentation or FAQ of your router to learn how to forward a port. If you tell me the brand and model of your router, I can point you in the right direction.

The router I have is Broadband Router from Linksys, Model RT31P2.

This might be a bit tricky for me - new territory and all that stuff...but I guess you could say I've been there before...Smile

Here are the instructions: http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Linksys/RT31P2/BitTorrent.htm.They are quite straight forward.

Don't forget to disable the firewall. By the way. If you are behind a router that acts as a bridge, you don't need a firewall in your computer. the bridge works as a firewall.

Also, those instructions show the default bittorent client. For whatever reason, the default port that the ctorrent uses is 2706. To use the standard bittorrent port you need to use the -p parameter when executing ctorrent. Just make shure that ctorrent uses the port that you forward.

e.g.
Code:
ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent

Hi Rarsa,

I'm more than slightly confused at this point.

I shall send this to you, and see if you can make any sense out of what you see...or at least my explanation of what has happened so far.

I did the following command as you instructed in an open xterm window in the /root directory:

ctorrent JMP.torrent

You said to do the following:

“just execute the following command:
Code:
ctorrent JMF.torrent

That will create a folder JMF with all the mentioned files inside.

Remember that you need to open the port in your firewall. If you are using a router, you need to forward the port to your puppy computer.”



At this point I looked at the /root directory, and the JMF directory was there and the following 7 files were present:
1.JavaLibs-freebsd.jar
2.JavaLibs-linux.jar
3.JavaLibs-macos.jar
4.JavaLibs-windows.jar
5.NativeLibs-linux.zip
6.NativeLibs-windows.zip
7.VidConf-libs.jar

I then executed the command:

ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent

and the following activity began in the xterm window - still inside the /root directory:

BusyBox v0.60.5 (2004.09.18-02:04+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

When this completed downloading, I closed the xterm window, then I opened a new xterm window and I again executed the command:

ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent

and the process started again.

AT THIS POINT I BELIEVE WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THIS:


Each time I open/close xterm, it starts a new downloading.

I'm opening the xterm window inside the /root directory, and I'm not sure if I should be inside the /root directory, or the JMF directory.

The thing that is confusing is that I've not done the things you have requested about the router or firewall. But, the downloading still appears to be continuing...as long as I close the xterm window when it appears that a file has completed downloading and re-open it, and re-execute the (ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent command).

Since I've never done this type of thing before, I'm not sure if what I'm doing is achieving the results you expect, or if what I'm doing is bearing any results at all.

I think the the 7 files that already appear to have been downloaded, are in the JMF directory. Then, my question is what is being downloaded via bittorrent?

I was trying to explain the torrents the other day on the IRC but you gave me the impression that you already know how they work. Wink

Here it goes again:

The torrent works by sending small packages. You can stop a torrent at any time and continue it later, you just need to restart the download.

When you start getting the files, they look on disk as if they were the final size. It is as if you have a puzzle frame and then you start putting the pieces in place.

If you restart an already completed torrent, it does not download again, it just continues sharing it.

The bittorrent is a sharing mechanism. It's based on people 'serving' the files they are downloading. To be fair, one should upload at least the same volume as one downloads. That's what makes the process work.

By nature of the home connection, uploading is slower than downloading, so it is good netizenship to leave the torrent uploading for a fair amount of time.

Does the behaviour that you saw make sense now?

Hi Rarsa,

Just a short note about your reply. Sorry for leading you astray. My computer knowledge is all self taught, and that includes no command line training or experience....except for what you are providing to me on this Mercury thread and the prior CUPS thread. So, you patience and help are much appreciated. I don't mind doing the work, or taking the direction, because I really am learning. I truly believe I'm contributing to the success of Puppy, at least I hope so.

To Bittorrent - It is my understanding that people on the net that have the files to share - for our purposes, the JMF.torrent files - need to be online and have their machine set up to share what files they have.

Am I correct in believing this? If so, I'm more or less at the mercy of whoever might have the files being online when I am, and having their machines set to share the files.

A second point. I have the ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent request set up currently on a Xterm that I activated in /root.

How I do this - I open the /root directory from the desktop, then place the curser inside the window, right click on top of the window, select Xterm Here from the dropdown menu, and put the ctorrent -p 6881 JMF.torrent request inside the xterm window. Question - Is this correct, or at least one of the ways to get the bittorrent to begin/continue with the downloading process?

Here's what my xterm window looks like at present, and it hasn't changed since I started it up.

Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

I've never used the ctorrent client before, so I still don't understand what the numbers mean.

My guess is that you have already completed the download. To confirm this check if the size, time and date of the files is changing.

Do this while ctorrent is running in an xterm:
- open another xterm
- cd to the JMF folder
- get the directory listing with details
Code:
ls -la

- Execute the same command every 5 seconds 3 or 4 times each time comparing the size, time and date for the previous time.
- If the time is more than a few minutes in the past, most likelly the files are completelly downloaded
- To confirm that you have all the files get the disk usage for those files. If disk usage is 9MB then you are done downloading
Code:
du -h

Bittorent works a little bit different than other protocols. It is peer to peer, but it uses a 'tracker' that advertises who is currently downloading the file. In Bittorent you only share the files you are activelly "seeding". If the tracker server is up and there is at least one seed, you can download. Contrary to most p2p protocols, In bittorrent, the more people downloads, the faster it gets as each client can get packages from more peers.

In the JMF case, Mercury has it's own tracker so it is safe to asume that it is also seeding the file, so, as long as the tracker is up, the file is available. Plus, Mercury is popular, so Its almost sure that there is someone somewhere downloading the file at the same time as you. Remember, every person that downloads also seeds the file.

Hi Rarsa,

I have been out most of the day, so I'm just getting a chance to look at and carry out your instructions about the bittorrent downloads. Here are the results.

Dewdrop

From your instructions

- open another xterm
- cd to the JMF folder

and
Quote:

Code:

I would say that the files have been downloaded - see the xterm info below from the 2nd xterm window opened per your instructions.

I shall now return to your initial instructions -(( step III - Configure VideoConference in Mercury)) concerning the moving of the JMF files to the respective directories.

Please provide the command line code for the copy and/or extract actions that are called for - I cannot find them in the exchanges we have had since I started with testing Mercury.

I think you mean for me to untar the downloaded files (#5 below) and place them info the designated directories - is that correct?

Quote:

Here they are in a little bit more detail:

1. Go to the Mercury web page to the address that I indicated (http://www.mercury.to/index.php?page=Wiki&wikipage=InstallingJMF
2. There you follow the instructions for linux that indicate that you need to download the JMF torrent.
3. For that you will need to install the CTorrent client here http://www.murga.org/~puppy/download.php?id=154
4. Download the JMF torrent file and open it with the CTorrent client. That will download the JMF files.
5. Untar the downloaded file and continue with the instructions.

Read the message after that one (this one). I made a mistake but couldn't fix it as I was not logged in.

Actually I did not put the actual commands on that step for two reasons, first, I wrote it very quickly, second: there are many ways to copy files (for example using rox) and to unzip the NativeLibs.

Here are the command line translations for the instructions.

Code:

cp VidConf-libs.jar  /root/Mercury/lib
cp JavaLibs-linux.jar /root/Mercury/lib
unzip NativeLibs-linux.zip -d  /root/Mercury/jre/lib/i386


Remember that after running the JMF wizard for the first time you may not see an image, you may have to wait 1 minute, then close, then run the wizard again and wait a couple of minutes the second time. From then on, it always shows, I don't know why.

Hi Rarsa,

I believe that the first 2 commands, executed from the JMF directory, were successful.

However, the unzip command was not successful in the root, Mercury, nor JMF directories (see the xterm info below). I don't think it is a problem with the command lines that I wrote, but you might want to check that.

The Mercury program was not running during these command line activities, and I believe that the JMF Wizard will only appear (although I'm not sure where I'll find it) once I've successfully unzipped the NativeLibs-linux.zip file. Is this correct?

Dewdrop

You need to execute the unzip command in the same folder where you have the NativeLibs-linux.zip. That's what you did the first time. I don't know why it gave you that error.

Try moving the zip file to an empty folder and unzip it there with
Code:
unzip  NativeLibs-linux.zip


If it unzips correctly, just move all the *.so files to /root/Mercury/jre/lib/i386
Code:
mv *.so /root/Mercury/jre/lib/


If it gives you the same error, it may mean that the file is corrupted, delete just NativeLibs-linux.zip and restart ctorrent until it says that the download is complete.

Hi Rarsa,

Today, I've tried the unzip command from the same directory as you suggested.
I tried moving NativeLibs-linux.zip to it's own directory and unzipping it
I've tried deleting it and downloading it a second and third time, all with the same results.

I beginning to wonder if it is me, or if the NativeLibs-linux.zip file is incomplete on the server.

I appear to be stopped at this point.

Note: I will be out of town over the coming weekend (9/23-26/05), and will not be able to do any testing during that time. Shall we give it a rest until Tuesday of next week? Your call.

My setup again is: Chubby Puppy 1.0.4, installed on a hard drive with a floppy for booting. When I'm doing the unzipping command, Mercury is not running (might this be the problem? - I don't think so, but you know better than I do).

I need more direction from you. Hopefully, these unsuccessful attempts is giving you new information and new ideas to try....I feel that if I could get the NativeLibs-linux.zip file to unzip, that would be the last major hurdle to overcome before everything works.

This is what happens when I tried to open it from the root/JMF directory.

I moved it to an empty directory /root/Native Libs, and this is what the unzip attempt yielded:



BusyBox v0.60.5 (2004.09.18-02:04+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

# unzip NativeLibs-linux.zip
Archive: NativeLibs-linux.zip
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of NativeLibs-linux.zip or
NativeLibs-linux.zip.zip, and cannot find NativeLibs-linux.zip.ZIP, period.
#


I will now delete the NativeLibs-linux.zip file and restart ctorrent to get it again.

I will move it to another directory, and try to unzip it again.

Mercury is a full featured java based MSN Messenger client. It only runs the MSN protocol but it runs it very well. Some say that maybe even better than the MSN Messenger.


Is there a instant messenging/video conferencing app for Puppy that is M$N independent?

Why? as a matter of principle? If something get's the job done good enough, why would you care?

Having said that and responding your question: To the best of my knowledge there isn't another videoconferencing application for Puppy that is M$N independent.

Actually, I haven't found a solution for Linux that is M$N independent. The closest thing may be Gnomemeeting, although it is also based on a M$N protocol. Before trying Mercury I started compiling Gnomemeeting. It has too many dependencies.
