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.

Bugs Acqlite problems...

G4 PPC running 10.4.11. Plenty of RAM, plenty speed, 500gb drive.

Immediately after launching Acqlite a popup with "wants to connect to" starts. It continues popping up over and over asking to connect to an endless number of sites. It won't give me time enough to quit Acqlite and I have to use esc for a force quit. Even after quitting, it keeps popping up and even if I open a browser or other app it stays on top. I have to restart to finally get rid of it. What is this and how do I get rid of it??

I've never seen that before. Did you add Acqlite to your OSX firewall as an exception?
Since you are using OSX 10.4 the first post is applicable to you Mac OSX 10.4/5/6 Tiger/Leopard/Snow Leopard Firewall instructions but perhaps use the description Acqlite instead of Gnutella/LW. By default Acqlite uses port 6346.

Have you tried a fresh connection file? You can find a combo connection installer here.
I hadn't used Acqlite for about 6 months & couldn't connect. After using the above connection installer Acqlite connected within about 5 seconds. If Acqlite does not connect after 15-20 mins, close it & open again. If still no connection repeat connection installer process.

The only sites Acqlite should be attempting to connect to are GWC (GWebCache) sites to obtain a small list of peers (gnutella hosts running as ultrapeer) to connect to. Your connection list will probably have a list of between 5-20 of them. If Acqlite works like many other gnutella client programs, it will attempt to connect to a single GWC after trying to connect to every 15 hosts from your connection file. (That is if it can connect to the particular GWC otherwise will try others.)

(OSX 10.8 would not allow me to copy-paste a url into the browser, it would say could not find. Whereas if I directed the browser to the url address manually it had no problem with it. I do not understand that logic.)

BTW in the Network window, once you are properly connected to 3 or 4 peers, if you see yourself connected to any host address ending in :27016 then remove them. Hosts that use port 27016 are Spam-Bots. Also any with port 7001. There's a 3rd party app for OSX called WaterRoof which can be used to block ports which is what I'd use on most occasions.

Solved: I went to Little Snitch and turned off the Network Filter in Preferences. Went back to Acqlite and it worked perfectly.

Cool! Yeah Little Snitch can be a pain sometimes. In fact I removed it for the reason you were seeing above. I'd totally forgotten about that aspect of its behavour.

You needn't remove it and in fact you should use it religiously IF you have ANY files in your drive that are pirated or downloaded without permission. That probably applies to some of your apps and some of your music. Of course, I am totally pure and innocent in that regard, but still I trust Little Snitch. It's a great program if you take the time to know how to use it.

Yes I probably should learn how it works properly, though I know what it does. Two alternatives. Disconnect internet or block the address via the system's config file (if you know how.) . WaterRoof could possibly do the same thing, if you know which address to block. It can block incoming or outgoing connections for specific addresses.

BTW in recent times (a month or two ago) I've read on various forums including apple forums that later versions of Snitch causes conflicts with other programs, stopping them from running properly or crashing, including the blue screen kind of system reaction (Kernal panic crash.)

You no doubt have an Intel machine and I've heard Little Snitch had problems revising their software for Intel.

I have so many high end programs and sound equipment that work perfectly on standard OSX but wouldn't at all on an Intel. So I don't use Intel even though I do have it on another machine. If it works don't fix it.

Still, if you get the latest version of LS from their website, they may have fixed the problems you ran into. The problem I had really was irritating until I realized it was my fault for checking that particular preference.
