CarraFix for Mac2.7

23 June 2003

Optimizes Hotline/Carracho speeds.

What is CarraFix for Mac

CarraFix is an unofficial utility that claims to be able to speed up your web-based browsing and downloads when you are either connected or serving a Carracho or Hotline network.

What's new in CarraFix

Version 2.7 adds the following:
  • Great performance increase : consumes much less CPU, in particular with User Interface
  • New Preference added : the "Priority Step" to parameter the effect of priorities
  • Fixed a bug for slow client upload : their priorities is not set to the default priority but to the one choosed by the user.
  • Added Direct Connect port and Fix Acquisition port number.
  • Check for new version online if you allow it.
  • New average calculation (mid term average, better to show tendencies since TCP is fluctuant).
  • Fixed a crash at launch.

doesn't appear to be working 100% with the latest Tiger dev releases. Strange, sometimes it works sometimes it fails to load up and gives a low level error warning before quitting.. Make this shareware IF development is still going on. Or is this now dead?? No updates for a long while!!! :-( Thank you.

set this up under 10.3.5, works no problem. as it mentions in the FAQ on the website for CarraFix, setting it up for FTP or other internet systems that use random port numbers can be tricky. there is a hint on www.macosxhints.com that explains how to find which port is in use to limit it.

DON'T USE THIS WITH BITTORRENT! IT ONLY KILLS YOUR DOWNLOAD RATE! ALL MAC CLIENTS CAN TROTTLE THE UPLOAD SPEED. (even the official client, just click on the "minus" on the top left of the window)

Well, this thing has done so much for me back in the days of Jaguar etc. But now with Panther, I don't get it to work at all. It hangs everytime I start it. The usual 'plist deletion' etc. didn't help.

Using Carrafix on the transfers port of a KDX Server and everything works a charm! This app is better than using the 'total outgoing speed limit' within KDX Server Settings. Upstream speeds are faster and more consistant, plus my download speeds are just as fast as if i wasn't running a server! Awesome app this - thank you!!!! Carrafix should be shareware! lol

Installs and runs on Panther but doesnt seem to be doing its thing. I entered all the ports individually for bitTorrent (6881-6888) and still have uploads of 25k making my downloads stall. I set the upload speed limit to like 10 k but it still lets uploads of 25k+ go on.. barg :(

OK, but doesn't support BitTorrent by default, and doesn't support port-ranges (ie. 6880-6889), so you have to enter a whole bunch of individual enteries for each port. Seems simple to fix...

this is a super good product. it actually works unlike most of the other things claiming to do what this does.i love the fact that i can set leechers to a bandwidth of 1k/s while my other members can enjoy the full speed all at the same time. i have fun going to other servers ive been banned on and getting another account this time a server trade account under one of my other ip's...then when they come over and download from me they get a super slow speed while still being fast enough to stay(oh yeah ..sure..ill start their speed around 70k/s and they'll think i was a god send...i give em about a half hour of that or until they shut up really cuz then i know they've moved on from trying to hang out with me and get to know me better)while in the meantime i suck everything down from them i wanted in the first place while at the same time stealing theyre members....ha ha ha...i love this thing! revenge is sweet aint it! hey....if hotlines gonna turn oh-so-steadily into a bunch of assholes that just repeat the same server's over and over again at various speeds then i think im gonna play war cuz im bored allready....
