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.

"netstat -lpnt" in linux shows limewire listening on both port 6346 and 45100.

Code:
$ netstat -lpnt

I changed the browser from "firefox $URL$" to "konqueror $URL$" and finally could see what URL it is trying.

This is a sample url that is resulting in a message in konqueror saying "Connection to host localhost is broken":
http://localhost:45100/magcmd/detail?addr=<my-ip>:6346&n0=LimeWireLinux.bin&u0=GZLEHA3FR46YNHEU5 AEFUTAM5HYEEEMF

When I change "localhost" to "127.0.0.1", the magnet details page loads just fine. It is only when it is set to "localhost" that it results in limewire rejecting the connection.

My /etc/hosts file has:
Code:
127.0.0.1       localhost
# special IPv6 addresses
::1             localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

fe00::0         ipv6-localnet

ff00::0         ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1         ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2         ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3         ipv6-allhosts
A telnet session:
Code:
$ telnet localhost 45100
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /magcmd/detail?addr=<my-ip>:6346&n0=LimeWireLinux.bin&u0=GZLEHA3FR46YNHEU5AEFUTAM5HYEEEMF HTTP/1.1

Yet telnet 127.0.0.1 and pasting the exact same thing gets HTML as a result. It seems like LimeWire doesn't like SuSE's usage of IPv6.

Code:
$ telnet 127.0.0.1 45100

Thanks for the detailed info, limenut. I think the problem is because we're looking for the string "127.0.0.1". Should be a simple fix.

Then again...once I now have a magnet link, the other question is how one can even use it in LimeWire for linux? I thought I could run "$HOME/LimeWire/LimeWire" and pass the full magnet link as a command line option and it would somehow query the already running limewire and popup a dialog asking me if I wish to download magnet link such and such in that already loaded instance. LimeWire did ask if I wanted to add it to my download list, but, sadly, it loaded another copy of itself in the process, which is not good. Is there some other way I could pass magnet links to LimeWire in linux that doesn't make it load another copy of itself? And another question is, does anyone know how to associate magnet: URI's in FireFox or konqueror to LimeWire so that simply clicking a magnet: link sends the entire magnet URI to limewire?

Copy the link in the clipboard and switch to limewire. Under linux, Limewire checks the clipboard and if it contains a magnet link it will ask if you want to download it.

about the seekable player...more explanation...

You of course know of the integrated player in Limewire...now this player plays straight through the song correct? No way of going back and forth... (Limewire Player)

Well MamiyaOtaru made an integrated player (AquaLime Player) in which while playing a song you can drag across the player and move the song forward and backward.

I believe he has said he sent in the code but I can't be for sure. You can check out the latest AquaLime over at UTC or my site if your still confused


I was just wondering if this was going to be put into the anticipated 4.0 version.

Oh! Cool! Thanks! I didn't know that worked since the first time I switched it to LimeWire it didn't do or say anything when I had a magnet URI in my clipboard making me think there had to be some other way to get it to read magnet URI's. But the second time worked like a charm.

-- "repeat search" not effective--I have to use the keyword (autocomplete) search to find more sources.

--please reduce the font size in the OSX stats. The smaller font size looks great in the results, connections, library, etc.

how is everyone liking the 'What's New?' search? it will definitely be in 4.0 but i'd like to get any/all feedback about the feature.

for the most part it's great. As I said before, very addictive. It also serves to train a user in the use of filters to sort the results.

I predict that it will be copied by other vendors very quickly.

The results, though, are often disturbing, and there will be more reactions to the kiddie porn and other dark files that many users would not otherwise see. Perhaps a note/tooltip advertising the "block host" feature might help reduce the complaints and make it a feature.

The definition of "new" is unclear. I keep seeing files from other machines on my LAN that were first shared weeks ago showing up in "what's new."

I really like seeing files in non-Roman scripts. I wish they could be control-clicked and entered in the keyword search for editing or finding hosts to browse.

Default small item

A small item:

If one clicks "Kill Download", the icon in the search pane for that search result (the download of which was just killed) remains the "currently downloading" icon. Definitely not a show-stopper by any means, but I figured I'd note it just as well.

Great job, limewire team.
