Leamington Spa Access

Postby shareall » Tue Mar 29, 2011 2:31 pm

Hey gang,

Living in leam and chronically missing twofo in all its glory, so just a few quick questions: -

-Is it possible to use twofo from Leamington Spa?

-Or, if not, if i came onto campus, could i connect to the wireless or use a cable and connect somewhere to gain access?

Thanks for clearing this up (and hopefully curing my sharing needs! :) )

You can use DC++ Off campus, but you should note it will never be as fast as it was on campus, somewhere between 30 and 100kB/s depending on how lucky you are with the person you are downloading from. Generally we suggest that unless you are after rarer things you are better off torrenting. There is a guide to setting up your connection for off campus at http://www.twofo.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Off_Campus but you ought to be able to just choose the Off Campus connection option in View -> Favourite hubs to be able to connect/chat/ask questions (if you got the twofo configured client anyway).

As for using campus....you would need to be in a room on resnet, library/wireless etc won't work at all I'm afraid. General advice there is to pull a fresher :P
