You wouldn't get much answers to that. Anyone admitting that in an
unencrypted email that'll be stored on a mailing list would pose himself
in the way of being sued by the RIAA or similar. You may want to search
the aMule-Forums for further information.

The ed2k network demands that you have to upload a lot to get download
privileges. So the first 24h will be pretty much (60+:1 up:down), but
this ratio should improve dramatically afterwards.

The ID the server gave you shows whether your ports are reachable easily
or not. A low ID means your ports are blocked. A high ID shows that you
can connect freely.

If you could configurate that, you should change the value of your
patience; that'd help in this case.
