Can somebody tell me why the gnfs is not working and how to fix it. I have been told that nfs is much faster then siqs on number of this size. Thank you,
I know this has been answered before, but I can't find it. This thread is getting huge.

Get the ggnfs binaries from here (on linux) or here (windows) and then add a line to the yafu.ini file indicating where you put them on your filesystem.

for example:
Code:
ggnfs_dir=c:\stuff\ggnfs_bin\
