Max walker servers
MlDonkey can "jump" between servers : it disconnects from a server and connects to another. Thus, it gets more sources.
But, since mldonkey uses scores to connect to servers (when a connection is successful, the score gets higher), it always connects to the sames and gets blacklisted.
To be "quite" efficient", this option needs a big (>120) server list.
Wrong, it walks over all known servers, not only those with a good score (walking being used to check what servers addresses are still valid, that's by design). And doesn't reconnect to a given server more than once every servers_walking_period, which has a hardcoded limited minimum of 4 hours. Unless proven otherwise, that whole text is pure crap - /Pango
