Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Confused Can not connect have tryed everything!

I have tryed everything I can think of any I'm pretty sure everything on the help.

Im running on Windows 7 Through a Siemens 4100b router and Belkin N150. Even without router I can not connect. Tryed running java.exe and frostwire as admin from main account unless I gotta do something else. Have turned UAC off. Turned firewalls off. Did the clean install from here and the connection fix which just zipped files no idea where to put them. Do not know how to delete the preferences if that makes a difference. Im running on DSL it never happened to me in Vista but Win7 seems to...not like Frostwire or Phex. o.O Anything I can do people!?

Which version of FW are you using?

Which version of Java are you using?

If you're using Java 7, try using a version of Java 6 instead. Click on the link here for more info. Even though it's referring to LimeWire, you can still use the download link for Java 6 & use the instructions for making Java 6 your default version: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/genera...need-java.html


When using the connection fix, try this:

1.
Download the FrostWire Gnutella ConnectFix.zip file, save the file.
2. Double click on the file that you've saved & extract it with an archive utility such as WinRar, 7zip, WinZip.
3. Close FW & make sure that it's not running by checking in Task Manager. If a FW process is running, end the process.
4. Run the Connection Fix installer by double clicking on the icon. Click 'Finish' once installation is complete.
5. Restart FW.

Then leave FW running for 5 to 10 mins - sometimes connection takes a little time.


For deleting the FW preferences folder...
1. Close FW & make sure that it's closed by checking in Task Manager (if there's a FW process running - end the process).

2. Click on the Start button & then type %appdata% into the search text field. You should then see a folder named FrostWire - that's your preferences folder. Delete that folder. When you delete the prefs folder, FW must be closed... otherwise things won't work.

3. Restart FW.

Deleting your prefs folder will change all of your settings within FW's Tools > Options. So if you're not sure what all of your settings are, you should look through FW's Tools > Options & note down what things are before you delete the prefs folder, so that you can re-set them later.

Let us know if you're still having probs after trying these things

FW Version 4.21.9
Java 6

Did all these steps EXCEPT the connect file when I extract it says that this file can not be encrypted. I tell it to go ahead and I get 2 files MAC_OSx or whatever and The Windows one but it has a file that leads to contents and then to some other stuff. Theres not an .exe or anything to run. Advice?

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong one.
Choose the one that is called FrostWire Windows ConnectFix June 2012.zip from view folder: FrostWire Connect Fixes - ifile.it
I presumed most people would guess the OSX one is for Mac users only. I renamed the Windows one from FrostWire Gnutella ConnectFix June 2012.zip. I've double-checked and the one named above is the Windows one. AFAIK it should be 64-bit Windows 7 compatible. I've run it on my Windows 7.

On Windows, the MacOSX connection fix will look like a folder and inside is another folder called Contents. This is how most MacOSX applications are designed, so it includes most of the support files within the program package instead of them being installed all over the system like on Windows. To uninstall programs on MacOSX is often as simple as trashing the program package. But on MacOSX it looks like a file not a folder.

Try Birdy's advice here LimeWire Pirate Edition on Linux - Connection problems which has some off-shoot links. The principles are the same.

My search results yesterday were not good, but the program was not on for that long. Today seems much better.

Why do you keep trying to push users from Gnutella to BitTorrent only?

If they are going to use BitTorrent, then why not pick Vuze, uTorrent, Deluge, Halite, Transmission etc., which have been developed solely for the BitTorrent protocol for years, rather than the FrostWire attempt at doing BitTorrent?

The user above is asking for help with v.4 with Gnutella support included so you can't help him. Also what is a "Helper"? Is that something like self proclaimed v.5 only support people that aren't real staff?

Looking at the Frostwire site it even offers the old versions, so there must be demand for them. Why the policy to refuse to help those people?
