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.

Arrow flashing moving New Trick To Make BearShare Connect To Gnutella!

I have the same problem as many users is haunted by because of BearShare is not connecting to Gnutella network no matter what I do...I know 100% my BearShare is not firewalled, so her I have to think new and figure out a better way then only change the connect.txt file in hope to finally get connected! The BearShare 5.1.0b25 has a forced Ultrapeer function to use which other BearShare versions do not have. I know when BearShare hit Ultrapeer mode it connects to the Gnutella network no matter what, and I started to think is it possible to push other BearShare versions to Ultrapeer mode and get connected to Gnutella network instead of get frustrated by never ever get connected.. I have found a very simple solution to do and kick any BearShare from 4.7.3.2 to 5.2.5.9 into Ultrapeer mode, and here is how!!!

Before you can use the Ultrapeer mode trick below, you must be sure you are not "FIREWALLED" and the "connect.txt" in db folder located by default C:\Program Files\BearShare\db is not to old. Replase it if it is... You will find a new one here if needed: BearShare Connect Fix installer

1.) If BearShare is runnig and trying to get connected and not do so, just exit BearShare so it shuts down completely...

2.) Locate the BearShare installation folder which is by default C:\Program Files\BearShare, and find this file here: FreePeers.ini

3.) Open FreePeers.ini file with any txt editor you like to use like Notepad/Notpad ++.

4.) Find this section [FirewallLogic] in the FreePeers.ini and it should look like the code below:

Code:
 
[FirewallLogic]
bTcpNFW = Yes ; yes if Tcp non-firewalled.
TcpIP = 10.0.0.1 ; Tcp IP.
bUdpNFW = No ; yes if Udp non-firewalled.
bUdpSolNFW = No ; yes if Udp solicited non-firewalled.
UdpIP =  ; Udp IP.
UdpPort = 6348 ; Udp port.
5.) And change this line from (No): bUdpNFW = No ; yes if Udp non-firewalled.

to (Yes): bUdpNFW = Yes ; yes if Udp non-firewalled.

And copy the Tcpip and add it to Udpip, and the changed code will look like this:

Code:
 
[FirewallLogic]
bTcpNFW = Yes ; yes if Tcp non-firewalled.
TcpIP = 10.0.0.1 ; Tcp IP.
bUdpNFW = Yes ; yes if Udp non-firewalled.
bUdpSolNFW = No ; yes if Udp solicited non-firewalled.
UdpIP = 10.0.0.1 ; Udp IP.
UdpPort = 6348 ; Udp port.
So move on to the next step...

6.) Find this section [HostLogic] in the FreePeers.ini and it should look like the code below:

Code:
 
[HostLogic]
modeAutoConnect = Yes ; Automatically establish connections
modeAccept = Yes ; Accept incoming connections
m_bEverUltrapeerCapable = No ; Has client ever been an Ultrapeer
m_everUPExpire = 0xD8822D18B315E440 ; EverUltrapeer expiration date
7.) And change this line from (No): m_bEverUltrapeerCapable = No ; Has client ever been an Ultrapeer

to (Yes): m_bEverUltrapeerCapable = Yes ; Has client ever been an Ultrapeer

And the changed code will look like this:

Code:
 
[HostLogic]
modeAutoConnect = Yes ; Automatically establish connections
modeAccept = Yes ; Accept incoming connections
m_bEverUltrapeerCapable = Yes ; Has client ever been an Ultrapeer
m_everUPExpire = 0xD8822D18B315E440 ; EverUltrapeer expiration date
8.) Save the changes in the FreePeers.ini file, and fire up BearShare and wait a few sec and it will Kick in to Ultrapeer mode and finally get connected...

Edit by LOTR: Also check post #13 about UP expiry date here if BearShare has not been used for a month or longer.

I was always thinking there would be a way to force ultrapeer but never knew how!
But, I tried your trick, everytime I change "No" to "Yes" and open BearShare it changes automatically to "No" again and it never gets forced to Ultrapeer Mode, any suggestions?

Which version of BearShare are you using may I ask?

Past couple days, I've again tried experimenting with using BS 5.2.6 Pro (k), as usual struggles to make any connections. 15-35 mins may connect to one bs host, at most 2. But we all know those (k) versions of 5.2 do not connect or connect well. At that rate, BS 5.1 beta beats it hands down. I suspect probably the only persons using BS Pro who are regularly using it were original users of the program.

I'm not sure what the improvements of 5.2 were supposed to be, other than UPnP support, I doubt there was any dramatic improvements, also considering the developer was already working on ways to infest the program with external control.

Having a non-unique GUID breaks push downloads, causing what amounts to a DDOS against anybody with the defective software who happen to be firewalled and also against anybody who tries to download any file hosted by them. All firewalled users with this GUID are being blocked from the network in
the Fullsize Hostiles List and the gnutella templist hosted by Bluetack. If you were wondering why your cracked Pro was performing so badly even as at kept your bandwidth maxed out all the time, now you know.
Lovely, they added the (k) version to the BS Block list, AaronWalkhouse was so thoughtful, such a kind person. Especially since he had so much control over the block list.

There is also the hosts section for forced ultrapeer:
Code:
[Hosts]
...
bForcedUltrapeer = Yes ; Forced Ultrapeer mode
The [Hosts] section is about 10 or more paragraphs before [HostLogic].

Thanks LOTR, please send me the whole section [Hosts], because in my Pro version the "
bForcedUltrapeer = Yes ; Forced Ultrapeer mode" is not included originally in the file.

In retrospect, I am not sure the forced ultrapeer option is applicable to the Pro or standard version. I suspect it might only have been intended for testing with the beta. I will send you what i have anyway.

[Hosts]
bUseDefaultServiceProvider = Yes ; always try public.bearshare.net first
bNeverBecomeUltrapeer = No ; never become an ultrapeer
bForwardPublicQueriesToLAN = Yes ; Forward public queries to local LAN via multicast
bNativeCompletionPorts = No ; Use native completion ports for socket I/O
connectTimeout = 10 ; max seconds for connect
handshakeTimeout = 10 ; max seconds for handshake completion
msgTimeout = 10 ; max seconds to receive message
tempTimeout = 5 ; max seconds for temp to send a ping
hostMinorTimeout = 3 ; display time for minor errors
hostMajorTimeout = 10 ; display time for major errors
szAuthUserAgent = "" ; Authorized User Agent
szRejectUserAgent = "" ; Reject User Agent

You have to get an open port on your router to get BS connect.
