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

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

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.

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.

Search <type> <keyword>

to do this. Example: `search kad amule' performs a kad search for `amule'.

Available search types:

Global Performs a global search.

Set <what>

UL Show upload queue.

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.

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


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.

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:

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.
