Description Ken Gordon 2020-01-19 04:34:02 UTC
My system is a FreeBSD 12.1 via FuryBSD installed on an amd64 computer with 6 GB RAM and a 250 GB HD. RetroShare was installed via pkg install retroshare

The issues are:

1) RetroShare closes, completely, and automatically after the time shown in Preferences, Idle time, is exceeded. The default time in that setting is 300 seconds. Setting that time to 999 is as long as it gets. Setting it to 1000 appears to be interpreted by the OS as being 1 second. This is unacceptable as I normally don't access RS every 15 minutes or less. I want RetroShare to only shut down when I tell it to via the "Quit" setting and not until.

2) Items written into the chat window when a chat group is joined, never appear anywhere but locally. There seems to be an incorrect or incomplete connection to the net somehow. Both the NAT "light" and the DHT "light" are green. Friends and contacts are shown in the Friends and Contacts list, but never swho up in the Chat window to the right of the Chat tab.
