Well, I have been linked by Richie to his version, tried it.
A very strange problem. The pc I use to host. (I have several on the lan) refuses to operate that version correctly.
My pc right here, has no problem.
The original will not post any text or commands or anything.
I have checked leveling. Yup. Full absolute power, no typing allowed.
Even that version of WCS does not type itself.
No problem with the one made by Mind.
I have altered the hosts file in desperation,
then added some more modern dlls into the folder. No change.
I think now, im going to stay on the original WCS I have been using and use wipfw to apply the blocklists (proxies and Tor).
Same thing as ipfw on BSD, just runs under Windows.
I know, could use peerblock. Blah.
Peerblock has always been as slow as molasses in January.
If the windows ipfw is too slow, or buggy, I guess I will go to changing the entire computer to FreeBSD or OpenBSD. Then the firewall will run at warp 10. Emulate windows on the same pc and run WCS under that.
This is becoming a project.
Not so much as to bandwidth being used, but I just dont like the idea of certain foreign countries popping in and out for no reason, other than to gather data. (funny how now that is mostly Ukrain)
Followed by China, and then Italy. Yes, I do lookup the ips.
In every case, the list of proxies and Tor nodes as presented earlier on by Primary, is a match.
In fact, I havent seen a non-match when looking up anyone who comes in for a few seconds, says nothing, then vanishes.
