    220 Notice: even failed tunnel requests will result in a participating tunnel. Which resuluts in far more participating tunnels unused than used if the network is under load.

    222222It is wise to first limit the bandwidth and afterwards the participating tunnels, e.g. set some more participating tunnels and let I2P reach the bandwidth limit instead of the participating tunnels limit.

     228= iMule tips & tricks =
     229
     230iMule is a nice application to easy share files and be anonymous.
     231But there were some questions left to be asked on forum over an over again which is why I setup this text.
     232First rule:
     233Do not run iMule with the internal router. Use the usual I2P router instead and enable the SAM bridge in I2P on your clients config page. Afterwards restart I2P with a click on the restart button.
     234Second rule:
     235Always use latest version. Current version is iMule 1.4.5.
     236
     237After the first start of iMule you need to setup the config of iMule.
     238Open the configuration settings and make your changes. E.g. set the number of tunnels to 2 and the number of hops to max 2 - even 1 is enough for iMule.
     239Now decide which files and directoris you want to share. iMule needs to hash the files and this action takes some time.
     240Decide wisely which directory you want to share - do NOT share your complete c:\ drive on windows or your complete home directory on linux.
     241The hashing of the files takes part after clicking on the OK button. It will take some time and on each restart iMule will check if those files are still available.
     242Now it is time to restart iMule. After the restart all should be fine and iMule should connect itself to your running I2P router.
     243If iMule does NOT connect to your I2P router, go and lookout for any hints on badness - e.g. I2P not up and running, firewall active on 127.0.0.1 or any other texts. Those will be shown in iMule in the lower text box in connection tab and in I2P under the logs page
     244. A small badness on windows appears on every restart of iMule: left of the graph is another window just not big enough to be seen. It displays all the other routers in the kad database stats. Just click on the left border of the graph window under connection tab and drag it to the right.

     246Tips for running iMule:
     247- the arrows are always red even if you are connected!
     248- wait, wait, wait. It takes time after a first start to publish your hashes of your files into the kad database
     249- search generic. iMule database is not really big but growing
     250- you can chat with the other users!
