What's Wrong With Www.gruk.org/server.met ?

ed2k://|server|22.214.171.124|4242|/ # eMule Serverlist Nr.1 #
ed2k://|server|126.96.36.199|4242|/ # eMule Serverlist Nr.2 #
Those 3 have been offline for a while now. I don't know if it's temporary (they've been under attack or something) or if it's permanent.
Afaik there's nothing wrong with the gruk list - it's not "hiding" good servers or something like that - there just aren't many good working servers around right now. You can try adding
www.UseNeXT.to 188.8.131.52:4661 from the peerates list, but that didn't work properly last time I tried it.
I guess the servers will either "recover" or they won't. (popular trusted servers have "gone" before without ed2k dying) Just use the other ones gruk gave you and/or Kad for now.

Thanks for the answer mate. But only 4 small servers left ?!? It sounds like it's the end of the world as we know it and I don't feel fine.

One of the problems I have with Kad, is that it gives me the spam/junk results that I don't get from good servers. (you know - when there's maybe 2 or 3 files available with the filename you're looking for - server search gives 2 results, maybe 2-3 availability, Kad suggests there are about 15 of them, all differing in filesize by just a few kB, and all having availability of about 700 lol) It's easy enough to deal with bad servers, by removing them from your list, but how do you deal with bad kad nodes?

its the same issue with obfuscation, i enable it but don't "allow only" that just seems to exclude a vast amount of clients that are willing to upload.

Hopefully, as I've always found it a bit desorganised. More logical would be if ed2k and Kad were combined in a "network" window and the log and the my info stuff had an own window (yes I know this is totally offtopic and doesn't belong here )
I hope that with some Kad changes made in the current version the spam/fake results in Kad will decrease or be easier to identify (maybe the more people update).
From the 0.49a changelog:
.: Several changes have been made to improve kads resistance against malicious keyword publishing:
.: Kad now keeps track which filenames were published by different sources for the same file and uses the most common name (instead the last published one) when responding search requests
.: Same hashs (files) which have different filesizes are now properly stored seperatly instead overwriting eachother
.: Kad calculates a rating based on how many different sources publish a file and how many files publishes a source. When responding to a search request, files with a rating below a set limit will be sent last in order to avoid that spammed files push out valid ones.
.: The Kad rating for published files is also sent in search results to be used in the future version as indicator
And now really back to topic :
There are more than 4 servers left. In the peerates list there are currently 10 servers and all seem to be working. (Although some of them may be full). Also it seems that some servers are only temporarily off, e.g. the 2 eDonkey Servers did work for me the last days.
Maybe the peerates list has some servers that aren't on the gruk list (I didn't check this), so you might want to use it, too.

Fox88, you are absolutely correct about the ip filter. I have recently switched from using eMule on a PC to aMule on a Mac and was using an ip filter offered by Sourceforge for aMule that updates monthly. Anyhow, I switched to a filter offered by Bluetack and now I’m not getting any spam. It was the filter and not the servers that was crap. Thank you for the response. I’m now happily aMuling away. Have a great weekend!
