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.

Apologies, but this forum only supports the FrostWire version 4. For the torrent only version, please visit FrostWire Community Forums • Index page
Although your comment, only the torrents vanish suggests maybe it's not FW 6 or later. We are not knowledgeable about FrostWire's torrent behavours.
It might be a question of how you are opening torrent files. Directly via the site using magnet links or via .tor files? If you are opening via magnet link, then the magnet link might be failing. I noticed this as a problem with one torrent site in particular with about a 15 to 25% success rate. And your problem has all the hallmarks of a failed magnet link download!
If possible, try to first download the torrent file (.tor) and open that file with FW. (If that torrent site does not offer .tor downloads, see if you can find a mirror site also hosting the same torrent. Some torrent sites will have a page or section showing mirror sites for a particular torrent.)

I just tried opening a torrent file (.tor) downloaded from a torrent site and no problem starting the torrent download, although it took a few minutes. Another appears to have no seeds (these torrent (.tor) files were over 2 years old.)

If you are using FrostWire 4, then hopefully you do not see a brick wall icon near the connection icon bottom left of the FW screen.

I'm not experienced enough with using FW for torrents.
I opened FW 4.21, did a torrent search, received 3 results. When I double-clicked one of the results, the torrent site opened. But, the torrent automatically started downloading anyway.

In your case, the download is failing for some reason.
In your FrostWire downloads folder should be a torrent folder. Do you see .tor or .torrent files inside? (File extensions might be set to be hidden on your OS.)
If yes and if FW is the default for torrents you could potentially double-click the torrent file to try to get FW restarting the torrent.

Are you seeing a brick wall on your FrostWire?
The connection icon to the far left is of no relevance to torrents, only for connecting to the gnutella network.

Hi runt66 You should have opened a new thread topic for your problem. I know you have experience with several LW-4 clones and you appear to have firewalling issues with them. I suspect you have an old router which either does not support UPnP or it's implementation is not fully compatible. I have an old router and although UPnP works, it's unreliable and after two days of running as an ultrapeer UPnP appears to fail. Since port forwarding the problem disappeared. I would recommend port forwarding for FrostWire using a different port to any other program you use. Also, did you try the FrostWire connectFix installer?

What I do notice about the torrent file I downloaded is, I had torrents set in settings to download to a non-system hard drive. Instead it downloaded to my account folder within a FrostWire Saved folder. So for some reason it's ignoring its own settings. Edit: probably because the downloads only are set to the other drive, but upon reinstallation it's changed shared location to default.
I copied FW (on macosx) to a different drive and when I re-opened FW, the torrent had gone from the download window but that's normal I think if the download has completed depending on your settings for Clear Downloads. The file is found in Library window under Shared Files and Torrents.

Go to Settings, Downloads, Clear Downloads & disable the option. You can do the same for Uploads.

Lol i did that cleared them from the Torrents from Library only after i had to close down fw cause it kept saying files were still being used. so I exit fw and went to the other folders under users and cleared that and under program windows and fw and cleared then one from that one too and when i logged back into fw the downloads were started over again and i couldn't removed them from the library again.. so i went and uninstalled fw again 6.7 doesn't have a download cancel button in options only on the transfer window and if you can not see the downloads in that window you can't cancel them

see in 4.0 they have a incomplete folder where all the partial downloads go in case you have to exit fw. 6.7 nope they decided to just add it to ur user folder.so after i cleaned out it like three times, this was after my download was completed but still hidden under the transfer windows "only way i could cancel it" was to exit fw and delete all the torrent links thru the user folder and programs folder under fw..something was telling it to download the same 22 gig of files i just already downloaded and since i couldn't see the files being transferred cause they disappeared from the transfer window i had to exit and uninstall 6.7 inorder for it to stop downloading the same files over and over and over and over....Only certain torrents from these site seem to have the problem ..KAT Extratorrent TBA BTJunkie which u can't get to the site using fw all it does now opens up a msdos window...it's a pain in the *** hope they fix it soon cause i really really hate Imesh

If you wish to stop sharing the file, simply right-click the file listed in Library/Shared Files and choose Stop Sharing File.

hmm, odd, I went to the actual downloaded file listed in Library and it apparently was not being shared. I needed to right-click the file and choose Share File. The file was coloured red and after choosing Share it turned dark grey.
