      Dear users and administrators!

      I am a new user on your system, I live in Russia. In the first steps I was faced with several challenges:

      A. In the basic configuration page warning appears: Your feast is not available outside (it is not critical, but it's not good for the network YaCy); please open the settings of your firewall and / or virtual server settings on your routore to open connections to this port.

      Port 8090 is open.

      Two. Do not complete Russification of your project. Very few Indexed Russian sites, now I try to add the new information in the first place in their region.

      Three. There is no support in Russian. I have not found any IRC channel, or the Russian-speaking section of the forum, had to use an automatic translator.

      I also can not access my YaCy address. Did not understand the local wiki.

      I hope for your support. Best regards, Sergey Edalin.

      ok For the First thing what OS are you using

      If you are using Windows then you have to open the firewall from the both sides and

      And for linux you have to run the commands on iptables

      And FYI in russia you can start working on the russian translation part if you are a developer, you have a + point that you understand russian although if you couldn't access you really need to take a look @ your network settings

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.
