Spread this number

09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 is the HD-DVD processing key you can use to decrypt and play most HD-DVD movies in Linux. Read about why I’m spreading this number.

ftp kioslave

One of the best features of KDE is it’s kioslaves that let you access network and other resources right from konqueror, from the ALT+F2 Run dialog, or even better from your favourite KDE application.

Tonight I took a closer look at the ftp kioslave, I wanted to see if I could configure a maximum number of connections to use, as it opens multiple connections to the server and the server I want to use only accepts 3 concurrent connections. Unfortunately I didn’t find out how to achieve that goal, but I did find the following config options for it, which I’m making a note of here for my own reference and in case you find it useful. The file to edit is ~/.kde/share/config/kio_ftprc, if it doesn’t exist (and it probably doesn’t) you’ll need to create it.

To disable passive mode for the site example.com:

[example.com]
DisablePassiveMode=true

To do this for all sites not just example.com use [] instead of [example.com]

To force text mode, rather than binary mode transfers for the site example.com:

[example.com]
textmode=true

To login to a site automatically:

[example.com]
EnableAutoLogin=true
autoLoginUser=fred
autoLoginPass=secret

If anyone knows how to limit the number of concurrent connections I’d love to hear from you.
