Guys...... i am really sorry for jumping on here ans asking THE SAME QUESTION again.... But i am a true NOOB!!! and when you talk about unzipping, ports and firewalls i just get dizzy. My knowledge of a pc stretches as far as Cut, Copy & Paste :( I have been having the same problem as everyone else with the single red light and not being able to connect.. Is there any chance someone could Dumb this right down for me almost as if u were talking to a 5 year old and help me sort this out... Ur help would be greeeeeaaaaatly Appreciated. Cheers!

Where do i start??

Peerless September 13th, 2009 03:11 PM

Google would be a good start...if you type in something like "what is a firewall" you will most likely get a result that leads to wikipedia, which would contain some good info...

sorry, but I'm not in the mood to try and word things differently, i.e. dumb them down...they are already pretty damned straight forward IMO...

I Figured it out
 
For those of you who want bearshre to work.. here is how its done... to me a lot of messing around to do it...

1) delete old version of bearshare

2) go to link below and get beta version 5 of BS. it wont work unless you also download the starter utility..

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/open-discussion/53386-bearshare-has-been-sabotaged.html


3) down load starter utility

4) install starter utility

5) install ver 5 beta of bearshare..

6) get new list of ultra peers from link below - where is says cache... the zip wouldnt open for me and i had to use the rar - i had to download winrar

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/host-c...bearshare.html

if you follow instructions on how to load new ultrapeer list it will work.... with the 2 files you put from cache to db file... delete the old ones then paste in new ones...

i had 20 peers connected..... was flyyyiiiinnnnn

good luck.. let me know if it works for you,,,

Bearshare connection problem
 
hi i read what mageeda wrote about downloading bs v 5 with the starter utility except it tells me that the version of bearshare is expired, i downloaded the started utility first and then ran bearshare 5 and it tells me its expired can you help me?

You should open the BearStart utility, not the BearShare Test program you installed. ;) ie: put a shortcut to the BearStart v2.exe file to where you desire. You may need to make an exception in your security software for BearStart also since some security software may see it as an issue turning your computer clock back temporarily for a few seconds. :)

Hi guys..

this will work but as the last guy said - it changes your clock back to like 2002 or something. if you then change your clock to 2009 the version will say expired and not work. you have to decide what you want more.. bearshare working or a clock that says its 2009....

BearStart only changes the computer clock back for a few seconds. The clock then reverts back to normal. I do advise you put BearStart on the safe/ignore list of your security however. Some security software may get upset with the momentary time change.

mageeda December 14th, 2009 10:04 AM

I never tried that. what do you do? put it on your safe/ignore list, then fix your clock back to normal date? and all should be ok??
