DC++ FAQ » Configuration

Are there alternative hublists?

One of the benefits of using DC++ is the ability to switch the hub list that is downloaded. To start out, Hublist.org is a great site with a large list of hub lists. DC++ will only use one hub list at a time, but you can specify several in case one list goes down.

DC++ After 0.4033:
To use another hub list, open up File -> Settings -> Downloads. Click on Configure Public Hub Lists. Paste in another hub list and click Add. DC++ will try each hub list listed, starting with the one at the top.

DC++ Before 0.4033:
To use another hub list, open up File -> Settings ->.Downloads. Replace the "Public hub list URL" at the bottom. Place a semicolon between each hub list.

Here is a list of hub lists in use today:

Public XML Hub lists For DC++ clients newer than 0.4033.
http://www.hublist.org/PublicHubList.xml.bz2 Has additional columns of information

http://www.dcnet.be/publichublist.config.bz2 Dutch hubs
http://dcinfo.sytes.net/hungaryhublist.config.bz2 Hungarian hubs

If none of these work in DC++, try pasting a link into your browser. If a file does download, then you have some sort of firewall blocking DC++ specifically. If nothing downloads, then a firewall is blocking all your internet traffic to that site or the list is down.
