              External Connections password.

       [ -f <path>, --config-file=<path> ]
              Use   the   given   configuration   file.    Default    configuration    file    is

              Sets  program  locale (language).  See the NOTES section for the description of the
              <lang> parameter.

       [ --create-config-from=<path> ]
              Create config file based upon <path>, which must point  to  a  valid  aMule  config
              file, and then exit.

              Displays the current version number.

       [ -h, --help ]
              Prints a short usage description.

COMMANDS

       All commands are case insensitive.

   Add <eD2k-link> | <magnet-link>
       Adds an eD2k-link or a magnet-link to the core.

       The eD2k link to be added can be:

          · a file link (ed2k://|file|...), it will be added to the download queue;

          · a server link (ed2k://|server|...), it will be added to the server list;

          · a  serverlist link, in which case all servers in the list will be added to the server
            list.

       The magnet link must contain the eD2k hash and file length.

   Cancel <hash> | <number>
       Cancels the download specified by <hash> or <number>. To get the value use show.

   Connect [ kad | ed2k | <ip|name> ]
       Connect to the network.

       This will connect to all networks that are enabled in Preferences.

       With the optional parameter you can specify which network to connect to. Giving  a  server
       address  in  the  form  of  IP:Port (where IP is either a dotted decimal IPv4 address or a
       resolvable DNS name) aMule will connect to that server only.

   Disconnect [ ed2k | kad ]
       Disconnect from all networks you are connected to, or just disconnect from  the  specified
       network.

   Download <number>
       Start downloading a file.

       The  <number> of a file from the last search has to be given.  Example: `download 12' will
       start to download the file with the number 12 of the previous search.

   Exit
       Disconnect from amule/amuled and quit amulecmd.

   Get <what>
       Get and display a preference value.

       Available values for <what>:

              BwLimits  Get bandwidth limits.

              IPFilter  Get IPFilter preferences.

   Help [ <command> ]
       Prints a short usage description.  If  called  without  parameter,  it  shows  a  list  of
       available  commands.   If called with <command>, it shows a short description of the given
       command.

   Pause <hash> | <number>
       Pauses the download specified by <hash> or <number>. To get the value use show.

   Priority <priority> <hash> | <number>
       Set priority of a download specified by <hash> or <number>.

       Available values for <priority>:

              Auto      Automatic priority.

              High      High priority.

              Low       Low priority.

              Normal    Normal priority.

   Progress
       Shows the progress of an on-going search.

   Quit
       A synonim of the exit command.

   Reload <what>
       Reloads a given object.

       Available values for <what>:

              Shared    Reload shared files list.

              IPFilter  Reload IP filter tables.

   Reset
       Reset the log.

   Results
       Shows you the results of the last search.

   Resume <hash> | <number>
       Resumes the download specified by <hash> or <number>. To get the value use show.

   Search <type> <keyword>
       Makes a search for the given <keyword>. A search type and a keyword to search is mandatory
       to do this.  Example: `search kad amule' performs a kad search for `amule'.

       Available search types:

              Global    Performs a global search.

              Kad       Performs a search on the Kademlia network.

              Local     Performs a local search.

   Set <what>
       Sets a given preferences value.

       Available values for <what>:

              BwLimits  Set bandwidth limits.

              IPFilter  Set IPFilter preferences.

   Show <what>
       Shows upload/download queue, servers list or shared files list.

       Available values for <what>:

              DL        Show download queue.

              Log       Show log.

              UL        Show upload queue.

   Shutdown
       Shutdown  the  remote  running  core  (amule/amuled).   This  will also shut down the text
       client, since it is unusable without a running core.

   Statistics [ <number> ]
       Show statistics tree.

       The optional <number> in the range of 0-255 can be passed as  argument  to  this  command,
       which  tells how many entries of the client version subtree should be shown. Passing 0, or
       omitting it means `unlimited'.

       Example: `statistics 5' will show only the top 5 versions for each client type.

   Status
       Show connection status, current up/download speeds, etc.

NOTES

   Paths
       For all options which take a <path> value, if the path contains no  directory  part  (i.e.
       just  a  plain  filename),  then  it  is  considered  to  be under the aMule configuration
       directory, ~/.aMule.

   Languages
       The   <lang>   parameter    for    the    -l    option    has    the    following    form:
       lang[_LANG][.encoding][@modifier]   where   lang  is  the  primary  language,  LANG  is  a
       sublanguage/territory, encoding is the character set to use and modifier allows  the  user
       to select a specific instance of localization data within a single category.

       For example, the following strings are valid:
              de
              de_DE
              de_DE.iso88591
              de_DE@euro
              de_DE.iso88591@euro

       Though  all  the  above  strings  are accepted as valid language definitions, encoding and
       modifier are yet unused.

       In addition to the format above, you can also specify full language names in English -  so
       -l german is also valid and is equal to -l de_DE.

       When  no  locale  is  defined,  either  on  command-line or in config file, system default
       language will be used.

FILES

       ~/.aMule/remote.conf

EXAMPLE

       Typically amulecmd will be first run as:

       amulecmd -h hostname -p ECport -P ECpassword -w

       or

       amulecmd --create-config-from=/home/username/.aMule/amule.conf

       These will save settings to $HOME/.aMule/remote.conf, and later you only need to type:

       amulecmd

       Of course, you don't have to follow this example.
