I'm repeating myself in multiples here.
I know the GUI is written from scratch, but it's still using the giFT GUI-protocol.
The giFT suite uses a *standardized GUI protcol*. This protocol is supported by mldonkey, as can be read here
. (Search for gift on the page.) As AmiGIFT uses this protocol, it is possible to use the GUI included in AmiGIFT to control both local and remote mldonkeys. Again, I have done it myself.
How to do it? Fire up the GUI without launching the deamon and point the GUI to your running mldonkey using the IP settings. Should be quite simple. I can not guarantee that this will work on the newest version, since I haven't tried it myself yet.
[Update: I tried it just now, and some of the communication between mldonkey and giFTMui seems the be broken, both search results and transfer info are totally bullocks. On the more happy side, there is a Torrent-assistant visible (but grayed out) in the new giFTMui, hopefully a thing to come.]
As for the whole torrent-downloading-thing, I might have gone a little overboard in my statements, as there does not seem to be a way to send direct commands via giFT(Mui). This means giFTMui was only good for monitoring torrent transfers, not starting them.
I hope I explained myself well enough this time.
