Getting started guide

In a few simple steps.

  1. Download and compile the sources yourself.
  2. Create configuration files.
    If no configuration files are created, uhub will use the default parameters, so you can skip this step if you are in a hurry to see it run.

    As root edit /etc/uhub/uhub.conf

    hub_name=My Public Hub
    hub_description=Yet another ADC hub


  3. Start the hub in the foreground for the first time. Shut it down, by pressing CTRL+C.

    % uhub
    Fri, 02 Dec 22 12:13:42 -0500 INFO: Starting server, listening on :::1511...

  4. Connect to the hub using an ADC client, use the address adc://localhost:1511, or replace localhost with the correct hostname or IP address. NOTE: It is important to use the "adc://" prefix, and the port number when using DC++ and other ADC clients.

  5. Your mileage may vary -- Good luck!
