Looks like version 2.1 works correctly only in Mavericks.

Some Lion and M.Lion user,included my self, gets a major malfunction like:
chat window show up nothing !

I went back to 2.0.3 (and I lost all the stored PMs)
Of course I choosed to migrate my settings when the Wired update prompted me to move to 2.1 ;-)

FYI, the repository for the old 1.x version is still there:

Zankas website is already off. His tracker is running again. But we don´t know how long and if zanka decides to bring his website online again. But where to Download the Client and Server now?

I wrote a Mail to zanka and ask him if I can host his Wired-Wiles on my Wired-Project-Page. If he send me an OK the Files will be shortly available here:

http://wired.zapto.org

I backuped all files he had on his page (for example the tracker-sources). Lets hope he says: Yes.

I still have the Wired Client beta version 2.0 (8182), but I can't connect to the Zapto tracker with it. With 1.3.4 it works fine.

By the way: Are there any newer client versions? I'm asking because it seems that re:wired is developing at least a new server software, so I figured (or rather hoped) that there just might be a new client version in the works somewhere.

Michael Haeusler

Okay, I found client version 2.0.1 (269) on sourceforge, which seems to be pretty cool, but it won't connect to the zapto tracker either, only to the ReadWrite tracker.

re:wired is not compatible with 2.x. PERHAPS sometimes the author will include this compatability. But there is no Documentation for the 2.x Protocol which make it hard to code something.

And because of the client ... he is writing a command-line-client (re:wire ... the equivalent to zankas wire-client ... only much better. Multi Connect for example). Its pretty cool. Get it here:
https://github.com/docmeth02/re-wire.git

Its possible that someday he wrotes his own client. But this is far away. His priority is the server and the bot and now the wire-commandline-client.

Afaik ReadWrite's Wired 2.0.1 client has multiple connect as well. And it seems the R/W community is small, but healthy. They're also working on an iOS client, so I guess a lot is happening. It would just be nice, if all these protocols, servers, trackers could be made compatible.

Sascha_77

read/write didn´t update his project since months. I think it´s dead. re:wired is under active development and updates are regulary.

There is no client for iOS. The client which read-write presents at his page is not available for download.

R/W latest client update was four days ago.

With multi-connect i mean the wire and not wired client. It´s a little difference. ;)

Michael Haeusler

Yes, R/W wire CLU also has multiconnect. Btw: just tried installing the python wired client by docmeth02… no luck, even though I have the latest Python and npyscreen.

His server works flawless here. Make sure to lokk at the readme-file. You need 2 additional python modules. Here is a snippet:

Install prerequisites on OS X (tested on Lion and Mountain Lion):

sudo easy_install M2Crypto dnspython

Install prerequisites on debian based Linux distributions:

sudo apt-get install python python-support python-m2crypto python-dnspython

No, not the server, the *client*, the python thing… this one: https://github.com/docmeth02/re-wire

Actually all webpages and the official Zankasoftware tracker are down. Since there has not been any development for months, I believe this software is dead!

Or does anyone still have a working tracker?

Yea, but the read-write dev isn't building quite the same thing. He took over 2.0 development (but even that seems to have stopped about 6 months), and 2.0 is not compatible with 1.x servers (and has a lot of other bugs).

Sascha_77

Yeah the read-write dev is no real alternative. Look at my Post on the Top of the Page.

Great tool. And I do appreciate the French localisation much (English, French, German and Japanese are available). The only things I would miss here, a way to access to the server log from the client, as well as indexing/ restarting the Wired-Server (Administrator only, of course).

Anyway, this is definitively perfect for my purpose: exchange project-related files & messages with colleagues/ other freelancers overseas and while I am on the road (For example, you can hardly send a 150MB file per eMail that easily, and you do save time not having to explain anyone how to...)

Many thanks Zanka Software, again, keep up the good job :-)

Well, this is simply the best, getting better with every release.

Tightly integrated into OS X , with all the services you can get with it, since it is Cocoa (services like spellchecking, dictionary, etc. Well designed interface. I like it's focus on chat and communication. And now it is even localized!

Try to get this with kdx. And - answering the last post? When did KDX get it's last update? I have long forgotten that. Haxial is charging you anyway for it. Wired is open source. Go figure…

Absolutely lovely protocol creation. Very fast and secure transfers are a real plus. This is very useful for storing backups.
