What works

Almost everything, but the most important: Downloads works!

What does not

- The media player, seems like it needs some extra codecs to work.

- You can't open the "Containing Folder" for a file in the library or the download list.

- Sometime the start web page does not load for some error.

Additional Comments

To solve the "Connecting" issue you must configure wine to run Ares as in Win98 (it's needed for Ares to find the files it needs) and put the nodes published in Sourceforege ( in the Data folder of Ares.
