Guides to setting up your DC Client
Download and install one of the above clients.
Open the DC Clients Settings Panel.
Setup your personal information and Line Speed (normally 100MBits/s).
If you use a firewall (Windows or Antivirus), manually set your Connection to Passive and enter your DHCP IP Address in the External / WAN IP, otherwise leave it as so, as entering a new address every 8 hours, when your DHCP address renews becomes a tiresome effort.
Set up your Downloads and Directory folders, where there is sufficient space!
Keep in mind you need a need temporary space for unfinished downloads. So if you have another hard disc with 50GB laying around, it is recommend to setup a temporary folder there. This also gives your downloads a bit more performance, as file transfer really makes use of your disks mechanical resources.
Set your finished folder on a drive where you intend on storing your completed files.
Limit you’re downloads to only 6 at a time, any more will make your machine sluggish.
Setup your shares, by adding folders from your discs (Hashing files will now resume! – The more files and folders you share, the longer it will take to hash!)
Close the settings panel by clicking on the OK button,
There are many more options to go through, but we do not recommend setting anything unless you are an advanced user.
