OBTAINING ^

Visit http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdonkey/ for the latest version.

FEATURES ^

o MySQL file and client storage.
o Multiplex server architecture.
o Receive multiple server.met files from URL.

DESCRIPTION ^

pDonkeyS is perl implementation of eDonkey server. It is built upon Net::Server::Multiplex and utilizes the power of MySQL for storing, fetching and searching shares.

The main goal of the server is to provide framework for further eDonkey protocol exploration, but it could be usefull in testing of client software, since the server can be configured to output very detailed debug info about eDonkey traffic.

ARGUMENTS ^

There are two possible ways to pass arguments to pdonkeys. They are passing on command line or using a conf file. pdonkeys accepts all Net::Server and Net::Server::Proto::UDP arguments plus eDonkey specific arguments.

While passing arguments to pdonkeys on command line, arguments specified in form --argument=value.

While using configuration file, arguments specified in form argument value or argument=value. One argument per line.

eDonkey Arguments

serverMet

URL of server.met file. Multiple options allowed. Server list updates from specified URLs at start and each serverListTimeout seconds. Timeout is set to 10 seconds. server.met loads blocks the server, so if source don't response, there will be 10 seconds lag for each serverMet argument.

serverListTimeout

TODO ^

o Multiline string arguments (Net::Server fix).
o Filters on shared files ("filter").
o Multiple port pairs (tcp/udp) via configuration file.
o Proxy mode (work with other eDonkey servers as client).
o Don't accept() if server is full (Net::Server fix).
o Obtain server.met "seedIP:seedPort" support.
o "public" support.
o Multiple pdonkeys process instancies (mysql safe).
o Administration port.
