Yes to fix the annoying trasport error problem, just download version 1.9.2. Oh except that when you choose to download this, you will get a server not found message. So hotline, "WHAT'S UP WITH THAT!" This transport error message just became more annoying! So as of yet I can't rate Hotline, because this bug is bothering me so much I refuse to use it until I can get this update.

Hotline 1.8.5 is the most stable client and server out there. Yes there is an OSX native Carbon version of 1.8.5, But you need to go Fish. The installer launches in classic but after the install the HL 1.8.5 runs in Panther 10.3.2 and all other previous OSX versions perfectly fine. I tried using 1.9,1.9.1,1.9.2, and they ALL CRASH within a day! HL 1.8.5 SERVER has not needed reboots for 2 months or longer! True Client 1.8.5 gives you funky errors, however it NEVER CRASHES! I use it as my internal networking software over Apples because of such little overhead and much greater speed. My 2¢.

Crap! Still does'nt support long filenames on OSX!!! KDX is a good replacement (and supposedly Hinkley is involved with KDX to boot). But If you still need to use Hotline protocol, Terra server is a workable substitute that Does Do Long Filenames (but no Classic-ResourceFork support)!

That junk is dead and so is KDX. Who wants to deal with a 12-year old admin who calls himself Killer? Get a life and move to BitTorrent.

KDX isn't cutting-edge either. This client-server filesharing crap is dead. Get Bittorrent.

"cutting edge features such as resumable downloads, and real time chat, even while you are downloading, uploading,and even off browsing the web" when was this written? back in '97? thats not cutting edge...thats standard. cutting edge is the direction kdx is going....unfortunetly theyre trying to take my money to do it...

1.9.2 is an improvement, but back when they were showing off 2.0... that looked nice. I was really looking forward to that. the single server I use that still exists works justa bout as well as it used too, so I guess it's just as good.

The 'transport error' bug is not fixed at all on the client 1.9.1 version. Anybody has an idea?

Okay everyone, THIS APP IS A GIANT P2P DEATH TRAP!!!!! I download this thing and I'm hit with windows out the wazoo telling me to click this server, dl here, vist this, and chat with that, it can drive a guy mad! After the window orgy is done you still have no idea how to get the files you want.

essentially the same as 1.8, with some small changes, mostly good. servers can no longer display their own banners. a couple new buttons on the toolbar. a marginally-useful-at-best built-in help system. a new "message board" which is essentially the same as the old non-threaded news. an "open download folder" button at the top of the file browser. and the icon was really super-uglified. but most importantly, the truly maddening "transport error" bug seems to be fixed (finally!) altogether a definite improvement for os X users. in my opinion, far better than any of the third-party clients. glad to see the hotline project not totally dead

hi gravian. just wanted to clarify some things here. bill gates owns a company called "microsoft", which sells software including its flagship "windows" operating system. the "pentium" series of processors is made by an entirely different company called "intel".

You e-mailed them? They told you theres no spyware? Your gonna just beleive that theres no spyware cause they told you that there isn't? Sooooo just because Bill Gates says that his new piece'o'cr@p pentium (insert number here) chip is faster than all the others makes it true? You have alot to learn. Either way, I gave you a dozen other reasons to use KDX and carricho and now for another, the FSA (F)ree(S)erver(A)lliance on KDX! w00t!! KDX and carricho are the future of file sharing.

The spyware myth is unfounded. I received an email from them today in reply to one where I had asked them point blank whether or not hotline had spyware. They said categorically NO. They said they'll put it on the hotspringsinc.com website soon. Now the banners are a bit annoying, and so is the fact that they didn't add a bookmarks menu, but other than that it works just like the old one for classic.

For one, he's right, hotline does sux0r, for two THERE IS NO SPYWARE IN KDX! BUT!- THERE IS IN HOTLINE!! You people never learn! carracho is stable, and KDX is rapidly growing, Hotline like activity is discoraged and looked down on in both! I go to hotline for very few reasons, I'm ALWAYS on KDX and I'm on carracho a good bit too! Hotline is full of pay servers, sign up for porn servers, and admins who are gay always saying stuff like "AR U GOING UPLOAD OR NOTT???," waiting 3 seconds and kick banning you. Haxial.com and Carracho.com is the place you want to go to! Oh, and the KDX interface? GET OFF YOUR @$$ AND BUILD YOUR OWN! There, now you have no excuse to not use KDX! Carracho... where the advertisments are in hotline, there are big banners (waaaay bigger than KDX) the you can make for your server (with that room I've seen some pretty cool [or 1337!] stuff), so whatever you use, make it KDX or Charracho! No bull$|-|î†, no spyware, no advertisments and an much better P2P experiance!

Half Aqua half Oldschool and it has advertisements, the worst of both worlds. Use Frogblast, Heidrun, or Pitbull if you have to. All of these are better alternatives than the ancient reincarnation of the Hotline 1.5+ era client. I would even use 1.2.3 before 1.9x.
