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.

You mean to say that LimeWire killed your internet connection - so you weren't able to use it after the ethernet download?

That's fairly strange.

All hosts were disconnected on both machines, and the OSX mail.app couldn't connect. Both Limewires, when restarted, recovered quite nicely and resumed downloading (even before any connections were displayed!). I'm just going to try to reproduce this crash again before the others on my LAN start screaming at me.

hi stief,

what is it that you do to trigger the crash / network meltdown?

thanks.

Once I wrote a multi-threaded port scanner in java and left it running over the week-end - a few weeks later my internet connection at my dormitory was cancelled forever... Good thing I had planned to move anyway.

I wish I knew. Just tried again, but all seems fine with one to four small files.
-check mail to validate internet access in both clients
-wait for "stable" connections in LW Connections pane (>8 mins, besides self) in both clients (each shared folder only has 5 files)
-new search for "canon" [Pachelbel--it's not a popular mp3] on the G4 Mac or v.v
-download the 4 ethernet listed files
-check connections pane on the G4; Monitor pane on the G3
-check mail to confirm internet access.

btw, the speeds are great (I read the tooltip reports as estimates). The G3 reported the four 4.5MB files uploaded @236-467 KB/s; the G4 said 192-316 KB/s
The Process Viewer on the G3 did occasionally show some unusual activity--??? user with a process name in oriental-like characters. Console Log hasn't entered anything since the first crash, and the loss of connections could just be the usual.

I'll try again with some new, unhashed files later. The disable untrapeer settings are different in both, too

sorry trap_jaw--I missed your post. Yeah, and my kids aren't going to like that I can search their shared files!

cool, i'm glad it works.

just fyi -- you don't need 'stable' connections for the ethernet listings to work. due to some quirks in the way LimeWire handles connections, it won't let you search until you have an active connection. but technically, you don't need any connections at all -- the queries are sent directly to others on the network that have requested to listen for them.

i imagine you have the new limewire beta installed on the other computers in the network also?

Question Search Question

OK, I have 2.9 now. Its too early to make an assessment. I ll have to wait till it propogates.
But, I m wondering when LW is going to fix the inaccuracy of the search filters. For example, when u do a search of say "pink floyd" "320kbs" and you get a bunch of unrelated search results.
Thanks

BTW, did LW abandon GUESS? I heard it wasnt gonna be used anymore duie to technical reasons.

Keep up the good work.

Hello again Sam
thanks for the info on connections--makes more sense now.
Looks like my previous crash is related to my IPNet Router software, but it will take quite a while to be certain. My ISP was able to confirm that the DNS servers, the neighbourhood cable network, and my modem have run uninterrupted for the past 10 hours, yet all three of our machines suddenly couldn't connect again [hmm--LimeWire just unexpectedly quit on this machine G3/ OK on the other--lots of JVM_GetMethodIxExceptionTableEntry in the crash log. Anyone want it?]

As I was saying before being so rudely interrupted, suddenly all three machine couldn't connect, two of them showed Console entries of
lookupd[291]: DNSAgent: dns_send_query_server - send failed. Two of them were running the beta; the other wasn't. For some reason, the G3 has been trying to maintain 15 host connections (often an additional 6 or so are trying to connect); the G4 tries to keep 3 over and above the local IP. Does that make any sense to you?

IPNet Router runs on an old Mac IIci that controls the two ethernet cards. I haven't touched it for two or more years, other than to push the power button after an outage. Before I look at it, I'll have to drag out an old monitor/keyboard/ etc and see if there are some settings to play with. That's a job for next weekend, but by then 2.9.0 will probably change.

Cheers--and by the way, the autocomplete search feature is a nice touch.

hmm, if the logs aren't too large, could you post them here? (or just a few samples if they're all repetitive.)

also, this just happened once, right? it hasn't been a consistent thing?

trying to maintain 15 connections probably means the g3 is being promoted to an ultrapeer. the g4 having 3 probably means it's a leaf.

the autocomplete was surprisingly easy to add -- all the tools already existed for checking incoming searches against the library filenames/metadata. so this was just extended to store inputted searches & retrieve them when something you're typing matches. you may also notice that when you succesfully make an outgoing connection (seen in the connections tab), that iport will be stored in the autocomplete memory for that textbox. so if you succesfully connect to 1.2.3.4:6346, then if you happen to type in '1', it will fill it with '.2.3.4:6346'. (and the port there will override the other port-specific textbox.)

Sorry about the delay. Ironically, I just set up a temporary .Mac iDisk account to post the logs, notes, and a screen shot in its Public folder. You can access it under username "stief1". http://discussions.info.apple.com/we...UR.0@.3bb85a78 has FAQ's on accessing iDisks . P2P can be a chore!

I was able to trigger the home network locking again, only the Limewires didn't crash. I had to quit them both manually, and a few minutes later regained internet access. If the G3 thought that the speeds to the G4 made it qualify for an Ultrapeer, I'm guessing the poor little Mac IIci wasn't able to handle the shock and something there overloaded.

Adding the IP to the search box is a great idea. Now if only we could copy and paste them . . .

iDisks are webdav volumes, which probably means more to you than me. Do let me know which entries were important.
