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.

We should really be discussing this topic in the Connection Problems section of the forums.
I would suggest you try different Gnutella.net files to see which one works.
The one I uploaded a few days ago (originated from OSX & now hosted at iFileit) I just tried out for Windows 2000, with LW 4.16.7 & it connected very quickly. Other things to try listed here If LW 4 Will Not Connect

The LPE Download links from the ac1d site in the first post on page 1 of this thread have all expired, instead use the reloaded-designs links on the first page.

Default Java Memory issues for large settings files !

One problem I find with LPE & all the LW 5 versions is the Library concept. LW 5 loads the library in almost a similar fashion it loads Shared files. Thus there is a massive extra load on the program. Depending on how much extra load, after a period of operation a common error message to receive is, 'LimeWire encountered a problem ..." pop-up message. LW then must be closed & re-opened to refresh. Also if you do have a large library, frequently LW will start to lag & become slow after a period of time. On a mac with a large library, after 10+ minutes I find opening the preferences window & attempting to switch preference tabs will result in the program freezing.

Something else that adds to the load on LW is having a large ban list. This has a similar effect as having a large Library list of files. Yet the ban list is stored in limewire.props file, the shares & library in library5.dat file.

I am constantly backing up my limewire.props file, because every once in a while, LW will wipe it clean after a crash. With large library, large shares or/& large ban list, LW also becomes slow to write to the limewire.props or library5.dat file. Thus some things may not get written to the limewire.props file for up to or over 15 minutes. Also after opening LW, it may take LW a while to read the entirety of limewire.props file. I discovered this with the ban list.

* I think ideally, some of the options in the limewire.props file such as banned list should be separated into their own file. Thus less lines for the program to search through, read & write to. The library5.dat file should be split into two (or more) files, one for shares, one for library. I don't think programs read large text settings files very efficiently once they reach a certain size. For java based programs, it means Java memory errors! Alternative answers? VM or seeking extra system RAM when needed for Java? Java really shows it's limitations when lots is loaded into it. And my console shows the errors are Java memory based when the program starts to lag & eventually crash.

I have 16 GB RAM & 4 x 1 TB Hard Disk drives. Lots of alternative memory locations that could be used. LW only uses a very small portion of my RAM, about 300 MB of RAM. Having option to enable extra RAM or VM could be highly beneficial. I guess in similar way Photoshop allows you to set portion of system RAM it utilizes.
(BTW I greatly dislike LW 5's library concept being treated similarly to shares. For a large library, it means problems.)

Default Library

Do's the library in the LWE keep your music in a total file for itself or do's the download go to the file you want it saved in? When I had the MMJB I found that the libray for it was just like a list of libray files tellimg where the music actually was in the pc files. I thought that was how the LWE did it. I was able to add to the library and it would come back asking if I wanted to replace any duplicates or add all music also. I didn't actually have 2 complete files of the music which would take up a lot of space. Have a good one. Rich

Chances are they are offline. Unfortunately, people's shares remain in the general hash search domain for some time even if they have logged off or crashed from using their particular gnutella program client. But then, there are also some who either (a) have upload slots set to zero, or (b) remove their shares as they download them (but their shares are still added to the shared files search domain for a period of time.)

Of course other reasons such as the uploader's upload slots are all busy & you are unable to get a download slot after a period of time. Sometimes due to them only having one or two upload slots open which means attempted downloads from them die easily & quickly slip into 'Need More Resources, or 'Stalled'.

Much advice on this topic .. even though some of it now a little old, has been given in this forum section: Download/Upload Problems

Basic issue is, people come & go from the network continuously. So the shares change. Searching, then 4-5 mins later using the 'Get/Find More Results' tool frequently helps here. Also, (1) the longer you are connected to the network, the better your search results should be, & (2) the more files you share, especially if they are related to the kinds of files you are seeking, then the better your search results should be. Have a good decent upload bandwidth setting, sharing lots of files, have at least several upload slots open, then search results will improve notably. Hopefully you will notice this with testing.

For those who do not wish to give much in the way of sharing either number of files, or upload slots or upload bandwidth, their search results tend to be somewhat limited & closed just as their minds are.

(Edit: forgot to mention: When you choose a file to download, it needs to first download the Hash of the file. Without this, the file will not download. So if LPE is unable to at least download the hash of the file first, it will highly unlikely ever start to download during that or later sessions even if you come across same/identical files in search results in later sessions. LPE only shows hash being downloaded by others in the upload window, not for your downloads in the download window unfortunately. So you never know if your attempted downloads have downloaded the hash or not (unless the file has started to download at some point.))

Jesus christ you guys use 22GB of my bandwidth a month downloading from me LOL! But it's all good. I'd rather be a helpful resource. I'm surprised the links are still being used.

Anyway, an update to them. Lenny has been down for quite a while now. These are the active ones.

Hi gerard143,

Depending on whether you'd prefer to keep using LW 4 or go to LW 5 (LWPEdition), there are fixes to try in the links below:

If LW 4 Will Not Connect

If LW 5 Will Not Connect

If you're still stuck then please post back with your system details as shown in those links.
