How does amulecmd works ? i can't connect to it.

Hello all :)

I'm using linux fc9, i've installed amule, and i want to control it from the amulecmd command.
when i run the /usr/sbin/amulecmd It ask for a password - and i don't know how to define it in the running amule except the amule.conf file ( - and i also have a lot of fields for password....)

and then it just stuck on "Creating client..." and exit on Timeout ....

how to make it work ?

Thanks.

See instructions for  configuring aMuleCMD on the wiki:
http://www.amule.org/wiki/index.php/AMuleCMD

Open amule.conf in a text editor and find the
[ExternalConnect]
section

Find the line that starts with
ECPassword=


and set  it accordingly.


Then generate a   remote.conf  file in your  .aMule directory if you have not
use the instructions at the above URL

but essentially the command line given is
''
    amulecmd --create-config-from=/home/username/.aMule/amule.conf
''
on a local system
or
''
    amulecmd -h hostname -p ECport -P ECpassword -w
''
on a remote system.
