Thread: Another Kazupernode Tip

  1. #1
    To help find sn's on which your relatively rare file is being uploaded:

    Click on the "file" drop-down menu, clicking on "Extract SN IP's of dat file." Click on and open the file you wish to target for dl.

    Check status on the list to find active supernodes, response times, location and switch to a SN with response time 0.

    Not all rare files will come up with a list, but I used this method for finding SN's to dl T3. After a week of using my favorite sn's and random ones from the kazaa list, I stumbled on this area of the "file" menu. After connecting to sn's on this list, I was able to dl T3 in a couple of days. That's pretty slow for you folks who use bittorrent, etc, but pretty speedy for kazaa.

    nearly the same tip as i posted a bit before...
    it doesnt matter, connecting to a SN near you with a low response time is just fine, no other things are needed to be done...

    It's not quite the same tip, except the part about finding location and response time. The key in my case was to find supernodes on which the specific file I wanted was being uploaded. A week of switching between sn's from the general list or my list of favorites did nothing. Incidentally, I have found that the closest sn to me has not necessarily been the fastest.

    This makes sense, nice TIP, though it seems that SN would have had already found a source if in the dat, thus maybe reapeating the same search, sort of. After a first try on a file that was slow I got some connections, though I'll see how steady.

    I too have tried this and got new Supernodes with rare files.......well at least files i wasn't finding readily b4
    by the way, are supernodes hopped for quicker download speeds or finding files not listed on other supernodes?
    Are all the supernodes equipped with the same file lists or just the files of the people connected to that supernode?
    pleeeez explain
    anyone anyone?

    Good tip, but what happens if the user with the rare file connects to another supernode? Not all users stay on the same supernode everytime they use Kazaa or K-Lite.
