    Default Connecting to Freedb2

    Hey All,

    With Freedb going the way of the dinosaur, freedb2 seems like the next logical choice. The freedb2.org website states that it is known to work with OrangCD and says to chnage the HTTP in the preferences to the new site. Trying this didnt get me anywhere,however. Is it just a matter of plugging the number '2' into the URL? Is anyone else getting this to work? Thanks.

    I was going to ask the same thing - can't access FreeDB or FreeDB2.

    Does anyone have any solutions to this?

    Thank you.

    I just added a new CD to my collection, and had absolutely no problem accessing freeDB. Haven't tried freedDB2 yet.

    To configure OrangeCD to use FreeDB2, insert this in "CD info download URL" box in Preferences/Internet:

    [url]http://freedb2.org/~cddb/cddb.cgi[/url]

    To configure submit, click Advanced, check "Use SMTP protocol for CD info submit" option and enter the following info below it.

    I never had any problem accessing Freedb. However today I tried to add new CDs and got an invalid argument every time. I tried to access Freedb2 but with no success. Please can you help?

    Thanks for the info everybody. I didnt realize the errors were internal rather than from the website, still good to have a backup plan should the freedb feuding cause it to go down for good.

    Andrei,

    This is what I am getting in the Session Log:

    Connecting to freedb.freedb.org:8880


    When I had the problem with Freedb, I changed to Freedb2 and then changed back to Freedb as I could not connect with Freedb2.

    Thanks

    Joe

    Click View - Preferences, Internet tab, Advanced button. Uncheck "Use CDDB protocol for CD info download" and press OK twice.

    (I see that at this moment Freedb.org server is down, so it makes sense to switch to FreeDB2.org as I described in earlier post until things get into order.)

    I unchecked the box. I will wait for a few hours maybe Freedb will be online and try again. If Freedb server remains down I will change to Freedb2.

    Thanks for your help and assistance,

    Joe
