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.

I don't understand the following: 3. Finally, if you are using NAT (meaning that the IP address of your machine is 10.x.x.x or 192.x.x.x ) now, might be able to connect, search and download from the network but no one will be able to upload from you. If you have taken the advise of others to force your IP using limewire then your half way there, as your port forwarding is working correctly. But, you need to FORCE THE IP OF YOUR ROUTER or FIREWALL to the network. To find out what your ip is from the machine that you use to get on Gnutella open a web browser to http://www.whatismyip.com
(write this IP down and force this IP in Limewire) If you need help testing this Just post a reply to this thread.

I am new to Limewire and new to Wireless internet and a router. So I don't know what means to force my ip or router...can you explain in laymens language??? Thanks!

Post Assistance

The next time you are online why don't you send me an email with your IP address and a schedule of when you will be online. I will attempt to direct connect to your machine to see if I can upload anything from your machine.

I highly recommend the following.

1) make sure everything is set to the defaults that is, undo any changes you made to try to get this to work.

2) Assuming that with the default configuration you are able to search and download then the only thing you are looking to do is to be able to upload files.

3) Do some research on how to forward tcp port 6346 to your private IP address.

That should solve your issue assuming you don't have any XP or Norton firewalls installed.

Test Page was a success!

BUT

Received incoming this session: false

STILL!!!!!!

i have set static ip (on LAN--WANip is dynamic)
" " " fowarded port 6346
" " " opened port 6346 through firewalls (router + ZA expert rules)
" " " forced ip
ect...ect...ect...ect..........
i have searched/studied this forum/ router help pages/ ect... for weeks w/o solution.
LW works ok now as shielded leaf but needs a couple DAYS to REALLY heat up and i'm a compulsive rebooter.
i know my system VERY well to be only a selftaught wannabe PCguru. this "Old Dog" IS learning new tricks lol.
i did find a broadband forum whose users on my ISP accuse them of blocking ports and of course my ISP denies this.
i hope in the near future to serve my own webpage so i wonder about port 80 too...
SSSSOOOOOO.......:

Q1: does Test Page test only outgoing port?

Q2: does/would/could ISPs block ports incoming yet leave same port outgoing open?

Q3: can "Yall here" point me to utilities and/or net services (repudible yet pref. free) that will list all my open/closed ports so i can find alternates for this and future needs?
my skills include setting up a noncritical boot part/OS to run w/in routers DMZ for these (Q3) tests but such a hassle i want only once so comprehensive tests are a must.

Q4: please suggest workable alternate ports that i can try, i saw a post here somewhere but lost it.
Q4b: can i get ultrapeer status (my goal) using alt ports? i think so but...
Q4c: since outgoing 6346 is working will changing just the incoming port do the job? refer to Q4b above.

last resort i have to try "The Proxy Solution" , hard to trust that guy though lol.

thank u for all the help already found and to come.

oh...also (off topic)

Q5: does opening these one or two ports to this one open-source app constitute a security risk outside of my shared folders?
