KDX is a BBS-style encrypted Internet communications system that provides file transfer, voice chat, text chat, messaging, news, trackers and more. It uses strong encryption to protect your communications for security and privacy. For administrators, it includes many powerful administration features such as Server History, Connection Monitor, Account Classes, etc.
What's New
Version 1.6:
  • New access privilege "Can See All Volumes". Turn this on for your account and then refresh the base of your files, and it will change to a list of the volumes on the server computer, and you can navigate inside them, giving you access to all files.
  • You can also Get Info on a volume using the context menu.
  • Added a "1 Up Q For All, 1 Down Q Per Server" file transfer queuing option in the client that is good for people with large download bandwidth, but capped/low upload bandwidth.
  • The preview text in the Font Chooser window now displays samples for a number of languages, not only English. You can also type into it.
  • In future, warnings about the client and server versions being different will only be displayed if there is sufficient difference. Minor upgrades with no compatibility issues will not cause a warning.
  • Fixed a couple of bugs when changing the admin login via the local settings window in the server.
  • Fixed top secret feature for Jin.
  • Mac: As per Apple's convention, added .app to the names of the program files. The differing file name will cause remote server upgrade to fail this one time, sorry. Don't forget to upgrade KDXUpgradeHelper to the new version as well.
  • Mac: Does not always display the correct icon for volumes, despite 8+ hours trying to solve this single problem, due to pathetic Mac APIs.
  • Mac: Fixed a memory leak noticeable when cataloging (thanks Searcher!).
  • MS Windows: Fixed bug which sometimes caused an endless stream of errors when disconnected from a server.
  • Unix: Fixed bug with deleting files.
  • Unix: Remote server upgrade now preserves the unix RWXS/UGO access permissions on the server program file. This is important if you use SUID.
MacUnix:
  • Fixed problem with unicode file names with diacritical marks.
  • Hide ".DS_Store" (annoying little files that the Mac Finder creates everywhere).
  • Empty Trash now empties the real Mac Trash instead of ~/.Trash, thanks to special mac-specific code.
  • Moving a file to the trash (deleting) now uses the real Mac Trash instead of ~/.Trash.
  • Fixed bug with times in Process Monitor.
  • Support Mac file/folder comments (more special mac-specific code).
  • Fixed bug with Shutdown Computer command, but still requires root access.
  • Launch Program command now launches the file exactly the same as if you had double-clicked it (uses the MacOS "open" shell command).
  • Renamed program file to correct file name extension (was ".app" should have been ".command"). Consequently, you can now simply double-click the program file and it will open in a terminal window.
  • Added support for View/Control Display.
Version 1.6:
  • New access privilege "Can See All Volumes". Turn this on for your account and then refresh the base of your files, and it will change to a list of the volumes on the server computer, and you can navigate inside them, giving you access to all files.
  • You can also Get Info on a volume using the context menu.
  • Added a "1 Up Q For All, 1 Down Q Per Server" file transfer more...
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS 9.0 or later, CarbonLib 1.3.1 or later

Horrible app, horrible company. One star because zero is not an option.

The people that make KDX have a major attitude problem and are very rude. Go look at their FAQ's and documentation if you don't buy that.

Their FAQ states falsely also:

"You might experience problems with these:

* Little Snitch by Objective Development (on MacOS X). Causes networking problems."

Little Snitch does not cause networking problems with anything. KDX has networking problems, I've been using the server and client for a long long time, and they have had issues with dropouts in network speed and connection for at least two years, regardless the version. And it got worse with Leopard. To make a blanket statement about Little Snitch (which has NEVER caused any networking problem for me), is just wrong and stupid.

Most of the people I know using KDX are changing...we're tired of their attitude and their unwillingness to listen to user suggestions about making changes for the better in the applications.

May be Linux derived, but it's still the only choice. Just look at the GUI on Carracho.

Yes... another year gone by with empty promises. KDX will forever be at v1.6!

Someone else needs to get hold of the source code and make a version 2.0.

ugh, after all this time, it still does not intergrate with the OS. You want people to buy licences, so please realise that we're not back on OS 8.

I've used this app for some time now. This program *would* be awesome if it acted like a native app instead of this non conformist lump (yes, i've created my own aqua-graphite themes with AE)

This program is not dock aware, nor does it integrate with OSXs expose feature, but it is easy, fast, and very useful for managing a KDX server.

A few errors are surfacing using KDX 1.6 with Tiger 10.4. A new version would be nice in th near future.

yes, please make support for Expose (without changing the current UI). Thanks
