FAQ section / Re: Does Ptokax work in Windows 10

There is nothing like best ports. There are no ports specific for use on Windows 10.
Default TCP port for DC hub is 411. That is what DC client use, when hub address not contains port. Any other TCP ports works as long as thery are available to use on OS and specified in hub address.
UDP port is optional in PtokaX and used only by scripts.

maybe i didn´t ignore it,  maybe all the options are a bit confusing??  as they state 3 or more different options at once.... that is why the page i linked to made it easy to follow... 1 2 3 4 ,  that was the easy copy paste here here... etc.  being not frequent with the systems it does get a bit complicated to figure what is the option to use. and not wanting to screw up the install with a wrong choice.

sorry for not being a coding programmer, and all i need is a simple set of directions in plain english to get the nice program working.

from #6 where it goes bad, what option do i need to use? or do i need to start over again and delete all that was done?  didnt think it was too much of an ask. sorry

and if this is my 3rd post how did i ignore more answers to this question? i guess i dont understand enough.

thanks for your time

Hi,  i took your advise and have a windows version of Ptokax running and have a running hub.

Trying to get the PI running a hub now to free up the windows machine. and host with the PI, as I feel this tiny computer is perfect for hosting.

I was able to find this step by step guide to getting it working. along with another person we were able to get to #6 of the instructions.  there is no (make) that seems to work. lost at knowing what version is being installed, and i have the 2017 version downloaded and sitting in directory.

can anyone advise to next step here and why we can get it to install?


this is to #6 on the old directions.  cheers
If I were you I would start off with Windows Subsystem for Linux (provided you have a Win10 rig) as it's the easiest way to learn Linux. You will need to compile PtokaX from source. PtokaX-specific guides are available on the wiki. Based on your post you need familiarise yourself withLinux/Unix commandline basics for which there are countless tutorials.

I am trying so desperately to use and understand Linux based operating systems.  Long time windows user and have very little programming experiences.

Love the raspberry, and I know it will be an excellent server for hosting a hub in DC. Purchased a 4TB powered usb drive with 2 external usb ports, so this allows an excellent way to host a hub.

I have tried all my best in figuring out how to get the Ptokax running.

what I need is some very basic explanations of how to unzip and install the software. I have (I think) made all the right steps, but nothing seems to be working out  :(.

What programming software do I use in raspberry? python?  when it says to type scripts, what software is actually used to make the folders with?

this is what confuses me as there are many options to use. I can make screen shots and give my step by step to what i have tried.

1 other question, do i need to also run a DC++ install or is the Ptokax not need it.

thanks for anyone who can teach this starter in Linux based systems out.  (who can teach me what i need to know)

thanks kindly

I have compiled my PtokaX in Debian 64 bit, and then made setup. And now, despite of removing my account:"The nick you are using is reserved for someone other. Change your nick and get back again.
[23:06:41] *** Your nick was already taken, please change to something else!"

I have made another account with other nick, that I can use. But still cannot use every commands there still. I have tried to remove my accouint, and still the same problem.

Now I have another problem, I have a ptokax hub and a client that I use on it, until a few days ago I was able to stay active and everything was fine, I changed my router (my internet is fiber optic), I configured this router and everything was fine, but now in my hub and only in it, I can’t stay active, does anyone have any idea what it might be?
