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.

Question alternative to port 6346?

If this port is not available, do you have other suggestions?

Usually, ports above 1024 are still available for you to use. You could start by increasing your current port number by just one, say, 6347, 6348, etc.

Or did you mean something else?

The problem is that I'm behind a firewall. I guess that port 6346 is not open and that's why I cannot connect to the gnutella server.

I'm using BearShare as client, in the NETWORK setup page I can change the port number, but also if I put 80, 443, 23, 25, 110, or a number higher then 6346 it is still not able to connect.

Maybe this client network setting means something else, or maybe I've just to find out which port is open, no idea.

Some time ago I could connet to another server, not using port 6346, but I cannot remember. So maybe my question should sound: Do you know other server using ports numbers different then 6346?

Thanks in advance,

Max

First, go download Gnucleus. It's better behind a firewall and it's free and spyware free.
http://www.gnucleus.net/

And does your firewall block outgoing connections also? If so this may be your problem.

maybe there is something with the outgoing connections.

With Gnucleus it is also hanging during connecting, I did not try alternative hosts yet but it's not sound good at the moment.
When you set the port number what does it mean? That outgoing stuff pass through it or incoming stuff?
Are there other hosts not using port 6346, like gnet.ath.cx:8080, that I can try?

So it's outgoing connections to port 6346 that don't make it? By default, firewalls don't restrict that port for outgoing connections, so I'd rather look a bit further than the firewall to your Internet provider. Are you on a campus? I noticed a lot of sysadmins at universities are blocking access to the Gnutella ports.

What you can do instead, is find a public HTTP proxy (NOT a SOCKS proxy) and a Gnutella client that supports HTTP proxies. Public HTTP proxies are a bit hard to find, particularly the ones that allow outgoing connections above the 1024 range.

So what does this HTTP proxy solve? Most HTTP proxies listen on port 80 or 443. These two ports are usually open for everyone, because they are the ones you connect to when you visit a regular Website. But instead of being a regular website, you can ask an HTTP proxy to connect to someoene else *for* you. So, you'd connect to a HTTP proxy on port 80, and that proxy will connect to someone else on the given host and port, and thereafter will forward all data back and forth between you.

Hmmmm.... not a good idea I think. It's the same port that browsers use for http.

It's actually the port web servers use. This would still pose the problem that many ISPs block incoming requests to port 80 to keep their customers from running web servers (running servers usually violates the service agreement.)
