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.

Hey can you add a feature that makes the sharing private masking IP's or encrypting the communications so they can't be tracked? I know a lot of other P to P clients do this so why not limewire, gnutella, etc? Thanks!

because the gnutella network is a open source, you can't run under a proxy. Either way the other side that your tapping in to can see your IP on an open network work.

Clients that do this are most likely running a server like Napster did to make it work on other clients on that network but not when you adventure outside that network to a huge open source.

Bearshare does have encrypting for upload and downloads, This is why you will see a lock when you run Bearshare. But I hope you understand you can't run a proxy which is what you trying to say on the gnutella network.

Thank you for the reply. I see what you mean about proxies obscuring the IP, but isn't there a way to encrypt the IP so the user of the software will not know what the connecting IP is? Or even bounce it through other clients so it protects the users better. Sort of like a temporary proxy by whomever is running the client software. That way you'd have many proxies based on the number of clients connected at any one time.

There isn't a way known to do this and make it work, Both computers/clients need to see the IP address that your taping into, even if using push routes with other clients to envade the IP some how, the other side will never get the content it's requesting because it will not beable to find the host to make that connection. if your using a server to do this it will work but not on an open network, I think just like you, I would love to have this and I ask back in the days for this as well just as you are now.

See if the damn RIAA and MPAA wasn't so money hungry, this can be done with servers but see this is why they have a hard time now fighting the open free source like gnuella lol. It's better this way believe or not but don't let any client tell you they can hide your IP outside there network when they try to tap in to files outside there network like with clients like Bearshare or limewire.

I think it would be good to have this as well and I wish there was a way but I know better, the ones that have a Central Server like Napster did will only come down in time anyway sooner or later, they start up make there money and either skip or start another name, it's harder to walk around the law this way and you'll most likely be using servers outside the US where the laws are different and this can be done. Don't you hate the US sometimes lol.

And if there is ever one day a way to make this work, that person should be rich because I will turn and go and use there software then over any other.

I've been around along time with this and I have to say, it's a very huge gnuella network, I still can't believe how big it is. That's why you will alway have little clients tapping in to take what they don't have. Just my thought lol.

Ok now let me go on because now I got that out of the way I can relate to your question as to if both partys (I'm thinking if you were asking this) software built into it have fake IP's which once a user types in a search, results come up and the Ip would either be all the same/fake or all different fake Ip's addresses:

Nope I see what your saying right there but again if it can be done they havn't found a way to hide each search results with all diffterent fake IP which only the software can decode, it might be possible but poople that know what they're doing can go into the ini file and take this feature out anyway and while you thinking your covered your not.

I can only explain the best I can, there are better reasons this can't be done.

Your welcome
