    150150 * __How do I reseed manually?__
    151151
     152  * An I2P router only needs to reseed once, to join the network for the first time. Reseeding is nothing more than sending plain HTTP GET requests to fetch a directory listing and download multiple "routerInfo" files from a predefined reseed URL.
     153
     154A typical symptom of a failed reseed is the "Known" indicator (on the left sidebar of the router console) displaying a very small value (often less than 5) which does not increase. This can occur, among other things, if your firewall limits outbound traffic, and blocked the reseed request.
     155
     156To reseed an I2P router manually, do the following:
     157
     158    * Stop your I2P router
     159    * Open http://i2pdb.tin0.de/netDb/ or http://netdb.i2p2.de/ using a web browser
     160    * Save a dozen "routerInfo" files to your I2P "netDb" directory (ignore the "leaseSet" files)
     161    * Alternate method (easier): Download http://i2pdb.tin0.de/latest.zip and unzip it into your I2P "netDb" directory.
     162    * Start your I2P router
