Support / Deploying PtokaX in Debian 9
Last post by MothMan - 16 January, 2022, 20:31:09

I have tried to copy PtokaX files to the new server, that uses Debian 9, first it asked some lua files, then something else I don't remember. Then I tried to install it there but in the state of command "make" it asked Y(n, it does not recognise command Y. There were also problems with permissions, I tried to fix them, but I am not tech savvy enough to fix them with the instruictions. Does anyone have knwoledge about this and help me out?
Feature Proposals / Function to reload text files
Last post by Cêñoßy†ê - 14 October, 2021, 09:26:04
I might be blind but i found only profile permissions for reloading text files

ProfilePermissions.bRefreshTxt         - Reload text files
ProfMan.tPermissions.ReloadTxtFiles - Reload text files

So im requesting function like:

TextFiles.Reload()    - Reload text files.

There was a "commandline" dc client in the past, maybe microdc?... I used it on linux to share on my hub.

The hub just "forward" the messages (search, sr, ctm, rctm) between client-client OR NOT, if you block these protocol commands.
If you have firewall problem, it will be 100% clientside.

Tip: look at "cmd debug messages" tab in the client for any information about thecommunication.

I'm having the same problem.

I do however think it's because of ports getting blocked somewhere.

Out of interest, are you trying to setup the PtokaX hub on a server behind a router and then share it via WAN?

If this is the case, try connect to the the HUB via the LAN network and see if it works?

Good day, I've tried to find this in the forum without any luck. Please refer me to a link if I might have missed it.

I'm running PtokaX on an Ubuntu server, this same server has a large amount of data I would like to share. I was wondering if the dummy PtokaX bot user can also share this content. I don't really want to install another DC client on the same server.

I also just use the console mode on the server. So I'm not looking for a GUI solution. Is there an easy way to setup folders that can be shared from PtokaX or the bot user itself?
