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.

2, in the options window what does the speed option is i have a dsl and it was set to 33 what does that mean.

I had some problems

1, in the search window when i click on either filname speed search etc i do not get them arranged in either ascending or descending orderi just get a + or - sign inforntof the title and nothing else - what is that - is it meant that htey are arranged in ascending or descending order - if so it isn't workin well

Default thank you :)

Hi ken481,

all speedbars show the speed in kByte/s. Maybe your downloads so slow because the other servent is something like a 56k modem. (like mine ) Please try to find other sources. I test PEERanha on my 10MBit LAN always and i have a downloadspeed of around 500kByte/s but I will increase speed to the next beta.

The Connection_Speed-Key was set by the Installer. If you selected 56k Modem it was set to 33kbps .
This key is the only one displayed in kbps and is returned to the other clients to detect which connection speed your link to the internet has.

The Problems:
1. Ok I will display an arrow in the next Beta for '+'&'-' . '+' means increasing values or alphabetical order.

2. I will test to download from LW clients by myself. Maybe i did something wrong.

4. If your PEERanha crashed please mail me the Crash-Address or better the whole Crash-Dialog.

thank you

He is right... when you select DSL the speed is 33 - always!

Seems like a bug!

Default things that need to be fixed

Ok so first of all before i start complaining - the program is good and very promissing - i likei t a lot
now to make it really good.
1, better source management - so removal of down sources - ie sources who are no longer online - fix the search system for new sources it doesn't seem to work when i selct find more mirrors i still get no increase in mirrors.
2, i don't know if i wa clear enough and whther you understood me well, when i referred to the arranging in ascending and descending orderi n the search window i wanted to imply that it is not working that is the searches are not arranged in any order they stil remain random.
3, ok here is a feature that would really be great ; i tend to call it target speed managemnet - ie when you select a download you set a traget speed eg 10kb/s and the program automatically researches for new sources if the speed available is lower than the target. let's say i download an mp3 and set 10kb/s target speed - the doanload starts and i get only 5kb/s then the program leave about 2minutes ot pass and then tries to search for new host for about a minute then stops if spped still not target leaves another 3 minutes and treies to search again.

that's all for now about that crash when can i find that file you said about so that can sned it to you and where do isend it to you?

Default ok :)

hi ken,

thanx for your suggestions. I try to implement your ideas into PEERanha .

I will check/edit the sorting/new host algorithm.

I don't know which version of Windows do you have. If you're using:
95/98/ME -> click on "Details >>" and copy the text to a mail.
NT 4.0 -> activate DrWatson and look into a file named "c:\windows\drwtsn.log" (or something like that)
NT 5.x (XP) -> Go to your SystemControls/Management/EventViewer -> Applicationprotocol and copy the text

thx a lot for your help

so you want it to automatically send out searches for a specific file over the network? PLEASE DONT!

search: "joe gets a girl and then she likes so he does her good and then she says umm and then he says youck and dumps her divx slot pamela anderson britney qwerty sex public nasty gay porn lez action.mpeg

Yea, this is the type of thing we need to see sent out all over the network. thanks.

Why can't it just use another like file in the search hit list? If it isn't there, put up with the low bandwidth.

Sorry if I disturb... I'm a programmer too, and can understand/learn nearly nothing from those messages, unfortunately. Is there a good way to track back the error from such a windows dump (of a 'release version') in my code? What are you doing now to track the error, GodxBlue? Thx 4 help, Moak

PS: Currently playing with the idea of an extended code error handling (for Windows, using VC6). I know it is somehow possible to catch asserts and stuff and provide an customized message window (e.g. to store all important data into clipboard or generate an automatic feedback report). Any ideas, documentation, help?

Default Reg. Dump

Hi Moak,

VC++ can create a Listfile of your source, in which the assembly to the orginal source lines stored.
Most this helps alot because you can read the adress in front of the line and every line belongs to an C++-sourceline.

If this doesn't work start your debugger of your C++ and go the crashadress in the disassembled text. In VC++ do a double click on the crash line [in assembly] and it will jump to the source line in the C++ source.

The rest is pure assembly I think and I can't explain it here.
But look out for the registers often the bad values are 0x00000000 and 0xFFFFFFFFF.

I hope this helps a little bit,
