    Ok, it was long since i used Emule, but can anybody explain to me some things i might doing wrong and if they are possible.
    Emule has lots of options that don't work it seems, lots of promises, like it has lots of options for anonymity.
    Is it just me or the Emule Proxy Options don't work and are therefor useless ? Cause i can't connect to any server with the proxys i tested on other programs like dc++ where it works.
    I would like to know also if there is any Emule mod that changes anything besides promises of faster downloads ? I know there are hundreds of Emule modifications but what good are they besides faking ?

    emule makes no such promises, only the proxy option

    proxies are used to surf anonymous, and proxy option in emule doesn't work anyway.

    Emule help page:
    A proxy server is a dedicated machine that relays the traffic of a connecting user to its target address and vice versa. Proxy servers are usually used for 4 different purposes:
    Firewall
    Proxy servers can be configured to allow only certain ports, protocols and addresses.
    Router
    Often used to provide simultaneous access to the internet for many computers in a LAN.
    Content cache
    Content caching proxies have huge databases of regularly accessed internet content and services. This may speed up access to these contents.
    Anonymizing
    Some proxies do not forward any user specific information like IP or referrer etc, to the target address. The only computer the destination of the connections sees is the proxy server.
    The freely available anonymous proxies on the internet are not suited for eMule. Most of them are slow, unstable and will probably deny eMule any connection. Using such a proxy leads to a serious performance drop. Locally running proxies do not offer any anonymizing.


    If eMule is used on a computer which is shielded by a proxy the correct settings for the proxy server have to be entered. Providing wrong settings here will result in no connection.

    Important:
    Only enter a proxy if you are sure you have one and you are able to provide the correct information. Proxies are only seldom used on home PCs and offer no advantage for users outside a LAN. Hardware routers or modems are no proxies!

    General

    o Enable
    Enables the proxy support.

    o Proxy Type
    There are different types of proxy server. For eMule to connect through a proxy, its type must be provided.

    SOCKS v4 / v4a
    SOCKS proxies offer an application-independent protocol for connecting two hosts without direct IP reachability. v4 and v4a servers are only capable of relaying the TCP protocol. When this type is used the disable checkbox in Preferences -> Connection -> UDP Port has to be ticked.
    SOCKS v5
    The same limitations as for SOCKS v4 / v4a apply.
    HTTP 1.0/1.1
    Uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol for the connection. Similar to SOCKS v4 this type does not support the UDP protocol, so the same procedure as above applies.
    HTTP Proxies usually cannot open listening ports. No high ID will be possible when using this type.

    o Proxy Host
    Enter the host address of the proxy server.

    o Proxy Port
    The port to connect to the proxy server has to be specified. Typically proxies use port 1080.

    Authentication
    Some proxy servers need a username and password for allowing connection. If so, Authentication has to be enabled and the proper credentials have to be entered.

    Automatic Server Connect without Proxy
    Checking this option will bypass the Proxy settings when auto-connecting to eMule / eDonkey servers.
    emule doesn't make any real claims about anonymity afaik..

    Ok forget about anonymity, im talking about that i can't connect to any server when using a proxy that i type in proxy options in emule, if its anonymous or not. Give me a example how you do it.

    Standard emule works through a socks5 proxy.

    >s it just me or the Emule Proxy Options don't work and are therefor useless ?
    I strongly suspect it's just you. Are you perhaps trying to use http only proxys with emule? That mostly won't work.
