Bearshare 5.2.5 can't connect
I have been using Bearshare 5.2.5 for years. Never had any problems until now. Suddenly it says "not connected to gnutella network" when I try to search for music. The 4 lights at the top right hand corner,well, the first one is flashing red and say not connected. The last one says not connected. However, sometimes I can get it to work. If i just keep trying over and over, day after day, it finally just starts working fine. Why do you think it's doing this?
I have Windows XP, I have Hughesnet satellite internet, 2 computers (one is laptop), linksys router wrt110.
PS. Sometimes the first light is yellow and says "Mode: Leaf"
And the last light yellow and says "TCP firewalled and UDP firewalled". What does this mean?
It thinks it is firewalled because it couldn't find any other nodes to run the usual test.
Here's a fresh list of nodes to connect to. Shut your Bear down and unzip it to
C:\Program Files\BearShare\db, then start back up.
If it still has troubles get the beta in this thread and use the controls in Options/Service
to kick it into ultrapeer mode.
I never had trouble before. When I click on to search nothing happens. I clicked on to file to connect and still nothing. I have an old version 4.16. I also have windows 98. Any suggestions?
I did think of uninstalling and then install lime wire again.
Any info would be great.
lime wire...hmmmm...sounds vaguely familiar...you sure you didn't mean LameWire???
you mean bearshare is dead? wmg, sad day indeed. No where will I go for the stuff I want? :(
worked the last time I used it, which was a couple of days ago...
ah, nevermind. I was having the connection problem but I used the updated nodes list and it's working now. Thought I was gonna have to learn to use torrents to figure out how to get my porn fix :P
Thanks a lot aaron! the new nodes worked fine :idea: ... i thought il be takin out bslite permanently...
