Getting Started - Flines & Clines For Beginners

This is probably the most confusing thing for beginners so i will try and keep this as simple as possible.
The first thing you need to to is create yourself a dns address and download the updater software to go with it.I recommend using one of the following,both are equally good.


Dyndns- Register Here - DynDNS.com - Free Domain Name, Managed DNS, Email Services
Updater Software here - DynDNS.com - Support -- Update Clients -- Windows Update Client


No-ip - Register Here - No-IP - Dynamic DNS, Static DNS for Your Dynamic IP
Updater Software here - Download a Free Dynamic DNS Update client for your dynamic IP


The dns address you choose will form the first part of all clines you send to your peers like this.

C: anyone.dyndns.org

The next part of the cline is the server listen port, by default this is 12000.
If you want to change it look in your cccam.cfg for the following line.

SERVER LISTEN PORT : 12000

you can change it to whatever you want as long as you open the corresponding port in your router.

So the cline so far reads.

C: anyone.dyndns.org 12000

This is how every cline you send will start,now you need to create a user name and p***word in your cccam.cfg that will allow a peer to connect to your server.This is where the fline comes in.

Remember this
F: = Friend, for others to connect to you.
C: = Connect, for you to connect to others.

To make the fline using your ftp programme connect to your box and go to Var/ect you will then see a file named cccam.cfg, right click on this and choose edit.

Everything you see with # in front of it is not read by cccam and can safely be deleted or if you wish to leave it there it will make no difference.These are the only lines that need to be there for it to work.If you find it easier delete it all then copy and paste this in its place.

SERVER LISTEN PORT : 12000
ALLOW TELNETINFO: yes
ALLOW WEBINFO: yes
WEBINFO USERNAME : yourchoice
WEBINFO P***WORD : yourchoice
TELNETINFO USERNAME : yourchoice
TELNETINFO P***WORD : yourchoice
TELNETINFO LISTEN PORT : 16000
WEBINFO LISTEN PORT : 16001
ZAP OSD TIME : 3
#OSD USERNAME : yourchoice
#OSD P***WORD : yourchoice
OSD PORT : 80
SHOW TIMING : yes
DEBUG : no
NEWCAMD CONF : no
DISABLE EMM : no
EXTRA EMM LEVEL : no
MINI OSD : yes
SOFTKEY FILE : /var/keys/SoftCam.Key
AUTOROLL FILE : /var/keys/AutoRoll.Key
STATIC CW FILE : /var/keys/constant.cw
CAID PRIO FILE : /var/etc/CCcam.prio
PROVIDERINFO FILE : /var/etc/CCcam.providers
CHANNELINFO FILE : /var/etc/CCcam.channelinfo
EMM THREADS : 1
#MINIMUM DOWNHOPS: 1
#LOG WARNINGS : /tmp/warnings.txt

You can disable/enable any of these by adding/removing #


A simple Fline looks like this.

F: linuxsat 10Bel0w


This is all you need fo your peer to connect to you and means we can complete the cline using the user name and p***word from the fline.

Completed cline ready to send to your peer looks like this.

C: anyone.dyndns.org 12000 linuxsat 10Bel0w


Other Settings


To optimize your servers performance and security there are some other settings to add to both the c & f lines,I recommend you start with the following on your flines



F: linuxsat 10Bel0w 2 0 0 { 0:0:2 } { } { } yorpeersdnsaddress


This will give you the best performance i will now try and explain what these numbers mean

The 2 0 0

The 2 means that the peer will get all cards at a maximum of 2 hops away from you.

The first 0 means that the peer gets no emus from you. Change to 1 to get peer?s emu.

The other 0 means that the peer is not allowed to send us emm. Change to 1 to take peer?s emu. Please note that there has to be a corresponding entry in the in the server you are sharing with.Cccam is capable of its own emu these are the optimal settings.

The { 0:0:2 }

The 2 means that the peer can reshare your card once.Change to 1 for no reahsare,3 for 2 reshare ect,ect.

The IP or DNS address at the end of the F line

The IP Address at the end of the F:line makes sure that only the specified peer connects to your server. This is known as locking the fline and is very important against hackers.

Cccam is capable of its own emu work so there is no point using your peers or vice versa.
The safest way to share is receive emm from only the person you trust most - YOURSELF



Extra cline settings

You should resrtict the amount of hops you receive from your peers as anything above hop 3 is virtually unwatchable,ideally you want to using hop1 and 2 only this is done by adding the following after the cline you recieve from your peer.

No { 0:0:2 }
This means you recieve your peers local and hop 1
if you are sharing without a local make this No { 0:0:3 }


Later on
Once you have most of the cards you want in hop1 and there are still some hop2 cards you use it is possible to take only the cards you want from hop2 to further improve the speed of your server.To do this add the caid of the provider like this

C: anyone.dyndns.org 12000 anyuser anyp*** no { 0:0:1, 0963:0:2, 093b:0:2 }

This takes the peers local plus *** uk & *** italia from hop 2

There is loads more on this but follow this guide and you should be off to a good start.Please ask as may questions as you want i will try and write a complete guide once i get some feedback on my attempts so far.
