Haxial KDX Server

1.6
03 October 2004

Secure Hotline-like server.

Overview

Haxial KDX is a secure server that is similar to the Hotline network. You can connect to transfer files, chat, and post news.

What's new in Haxial KDX Server

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.

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.

There are a few bugs with KDX 1.6 and the compatibility of 10.4. Nothing major at all. The true problem will be the day when KDX 1.6 is NOT compatible with future Mac OS X System(s). This is because the programmer spl has ceased to create any future releases of KDX. What will happen? Back to Carracho and/or Hotline?

For anyone complaining about the appearance, there are are several new appearances you can download from Haxial's site to make KDX look different than the default appearance, and if that's not enough for you I've made an appearance that is as close to Panther as you'll get: http://www.subface.com/downloads/subface_kdx_panther.sit As far as this release, they FINALLY fixed some usability problems they created with 1.1 so I'm VERY happy about that. Thank you Haxial.

my KDX Server runs 24/7 and i've no troubles since day one - it's never crashed and nothing has ever gone wrong to force me to quit and restart. Totally reliable and excellent control over users/news/accounts/etc.. Though i do wish i had control to cancel a users up/download rather than disconnecting them (some are afk at the time). Also i love the appearances that are available to use and fully support Haxial to stick with this method rather than the bog standard apple brushed metal/aqua. However, i do hope Haxial introduce support for Unsanity's WindowShadeX and Panther's Expose.... PLEEEEEASE :-) I'd also like a feature to wipe clear the Server History WINDOW. I don't mean to wipe clean the history itself BUT to clear the history window - maybe an automated setting could be introduced or it could simply be done manually?? Afterall, co-admins are usually not local to the server and there can be a huge amount of data to transfer in this history window.... just an idea! Otherwise - awesome software! Years ahead of Carracho and deffinetly better than the old-worlds like Hotline and FTP. Needless to say - i've registered. Thank you (again!) Haxial :-)

All of you who don't want to pay for these kind of things now, will pay later BIG TIME for their stupid Ignorance by thinking that freeware is always safe! Don't ever forget this: NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS WORLD! Maybe not even the air you breath.
