Thanks, I've done that and Kad connects but only when connected to the ed2k network. Emule clients allow for either network to be connected to, or both. Because of insecurities and fake/authority servers I want to stop (and did) using ed2k in favour of just Kad. But it seems with the current download manager, you can only connect to both.
We need a button to connect kad and a separate button to connect ed2k (along with settings to auto-connect)
