Updating emule server list
The e Mule project was started on May 13, 2002 by Hendrik Breitkreuz (also known as Merkur) who was dissatisfied with the original e Donkey2000 client. The source was first released at version 0.02 and published on Source Forge on July 6, 2002.
e Mule was first released as a binary on August 4, 2002 at version 0.05a.
Also added in recent versions were the ability to search using unicode, allowing for searches for files in non-Latin alphabets, and the ability to search servers for files with complete sources of unfinished files on the e Donkey network. The application adds an IP address to this list after one unsuccessful connection.
After adding an IP to the "Bad source list", the application treats this IP as a "dead" IP.
These bad servers can spy on you, track your activities and report your behavior to anti-p2p companies.Since July 2002 e Mule has been free software, released under the GNU General Public License; its popularity has led to e Mule's codebase being used as the basis of cross-platform clients a Mule, JMule, x Mule, along with the release of many e Mule mods (modifications of the original e Mule) on the Internet.As of August 2017, it is the fourth most downloaded project on Source Forge, with over 685 millions downloads.A connection to a server is necessary to access the network’s resources and to make your client known to the network.Basically a server provides only an index for the files, the connected users share.
