Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Firewall Issues

Thanks for the portable version. I haven't been able to use bearshare for awhile. I still have problems with the firewall I set the port to 6348. It's still flashing yellow. Any suggestions???

Have you set BearShare to have clearance in your software firewall? Giving it total UDP and TCP clearance for whichever ports it is using? If not, open your firewall control panel and choose Add program to the safe list.

You might need to port forward your connection device. It probably has NAT firewall which is partially blocking BearShare. If you wish to do this, go to Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model - PortForward.com and find your model of modem/router, then click the model link. Click the skip advertisement on next page, then look for BearShare on the list of programs and follow the instructions given. Then BearShare should be 100% all clear for connecting.
ie: the 5.1 version did not have UPnP support, which is a process that requests a modem/router to open a port whilst the program is running.

nice program...

here's what I noticed (and it's typical of all the versions of BS5.1.0b25)....upon first run it takes a while to get connected and then only connects to LW hosts...pfffffffffffffftttt....furthermore it won't get connected to any BS hosts even after an hour....

what I did was to simply kill the program and then restart and was immediately connected to BS hosts and went into full ultra peer mode...the only drawback to this is I also was immediately the victim of COUNTLESS DDOS attacks...on the flip side being connected to LW hosts gave virtually no search results

Were they LimeWire 4.21.1 (rc) hosts, if so get rid of them. They're spammers. Also if you block port 27016 from your firewall this will help stop connecting to some spammers. Rather embarrassingly I found my Gnucleus connection file had 30% of these spammers with port 27016. Fixed now though after Birdy's advice about the firewall and her research on LimeWire 4.21.1 on my behalf.

I suspect the new gwebcache sites are more trusty than the old ones that come with the full-version regular BearShare installer. At least one of the old gwebcache sites seems to give out-of-date connection data (but perhaps that was just the effect on me.)

I can confirm the problem seems to be related to running the portable version on Windows 7.
Opens fine on Win XP. You may need to wait for File_Girl71 to try to find a solution. Whenever that might be. She has not been online here for a little while.

Unlike Peerless, on my XP the portable connected to BS peers straight away. Strangely I connected to a few of the non-BS hosts that are on the connection list I posted here. One of the hosts I had not seen for quite a while.
