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. 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.

I am sorry that did not work for you. I was having the same problem even when I totally shut off Norton and Windows defenses. I even uninstalled Li,ewire and reinstalled it three times as well as trying all of the other tricks that are posted and finally I decided to delete everything associated with limewire and updated my Java. I guess the last time was the charm for me. From what I have read it is affecting even those who have upgraded.

I thought this might help you as it did me, should I come across any other possible tricks I shall post them here to hopefully help you and others facing this pain in the neck of a problem.

Not true, I have had Pro for over a year now. I have not used it for a few months and when I stopped it was working fine.

Well tonight it would not connect due to the firewall issue. So I paid the 14 bucks to get another upgrade since it has been 6 months now.

Still it does not work. I will try to do the un-install/delete everything to see if that works. If not, I will just move on to another p2p program as there are a ton of them out there.

I've just started a new Limewire (4.18.5). The last one worked fine. This one doesn't and shows a Firewall. I've turned off my Windows firewall. Still have AVG antivirus on.
My details are;
Operating sys is Windows XP with 25GB Ram free.
Connection is Broadband through a Belkin54g wireless router.
I connect from my own house with Talktalk as my ISP.
My Limewire edition is 4.18.5 and Java is 1.6.0_01-b06.
I am UPnP enabled but the Brickwall is showing a firewall.
I live in Ireland.
The test site showed "the test worked".
How please do I get my Limewire to work?

I uninstalled Limewire and went with Frostwire.

I still get the firewall detected but now have a turbocharged connection and am back to downloading.

Unhappy Firewall problems and Limewire

Many thanks FireEater. I have tried getting rid of Limewire but a message keeps popping up saying "unable to delete because another program or person is using "promodb.lck" ". I found that this promodb.lck is a small part of LM but no matter what I do I can't clear the little b**, and I can't find any other program that uses it.
However I'll try again and try using Frostwire.
I'll let you know developments and again many thanks.

Default easy fix from other post

Hi everyone,

My limewire started doing this a long time ago. A post in another thread suggested deleting a file and it did it for me.

Go to c/all users/(your name)/limewire and find the file called "gnutella.net" and delete it.

It was that easy for me!

Hi Everyone,

My limewire started doing this a couple of months ago. I just read something on another thread that said to delete a file and it worked.

Go to c/all users/(your name)/limewire and find the file called "gnutella.net" and delete it.

That was all I had to do! Hope this helps.

Default how to get limewire firewall off

if your limewire is still saying that u have a firewall and your bars are red


you will need to do search,
in the search files in your task bar, the type in 'gnutella.net'..any files that appear need to be deleted, that is your firewall...

if this doesnt work i dnt know what else will...

let me know how it goes...
