Help:how to install Freenet

From Freedom Porn
Jump to: navigation, search

Freenet is an anonymous censorship resistant network. Once something is published on that network it cannot be taken down (even by the original publisher), and it disappears only if it is unpopular. Freedom Porn supports the idea of freedom of speech and as such media is published to Freenet, allowing people to download files anonymously.

To set up Freenet you would need to go to Freenet Project home, from there download the installer and install it on your computer. You will be asked series of questions that will set up your Freenet node. Read those questions carefully, that will ensure that you encounter much less problems later on.

One thing to remember is that on Freenet nobody knows what you write, but it is beneficial to connect to people you trust. So if you know of anybody who is using Freenet ask that person to connect your two nodes together, it can be done on friends page (link needs a working Freenet node to work).

Once your node is set up you should try to keep it running as much as possible. It not only will help people all over the world to communicate without fear of censorship, but will also speed up your Freenet experience. Note, however, that Freenet node will transfer data for other people, thus it will use your system resouces such as memory, internet bandwidth, and disk space.

When your node is running you will be able to press the anonymous download links on the pages that have them, and the node will download them for you. It may take some time though. Be patient.

Other software

To make your Freenet experience richer you may want to set up some other software that uses Freenet to transfer information:

  • Frost — News groups on Freenet
  • Flip — IRC on Freenet
  • jSite — Freesite (that's what sites on Freenet are called) publishing utility
