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.

Default 4.9.29 A Litttle problem

4.9.29 Pro is having a little problem I am port forward no firewall icon showing all things working good except it doesn't want to connect to more than 4 leafs. UP is not disabled but for some reason does no want to connect as a UP.

stief has a spectacular aura about

Hmm--here 4.9.29 is connecting much more easily as an UP, and seems to pick up leafs much faster than the previous version. I was about to ask if this is coincidence.

Oh well.

--some other notes:

-browse host needs a "refresh" option (one that won't dismiss the tab if the host happens to be busy when the "repeat" option is used).

--Bearshare handles busy queues really well: overnight downloads moved from busy, to queued, to complete very well. Before, I'd avoid BShare results.

4.9.29 is even more of a bee with an itch with Apple's VMem on java 1.4.2_05 too. It quickly gets up well over a gig, and thus I can't run it for more than dozen hours without it crippling my machine [soon to be replaced accordingly].

Under low HD conditions, any dialog that LW needs (like the delete confirmation, or the low HD warning), hangs LW for more than 5 mins. I presume the dialog was cached in the VMem, and takes forever to be recalled.

Although this doesn't affect most of the UP connections, the hang seems to trigger the loss of most of the leafs.

btw--if anyone want to see how many LW cabo versions are out there--download a large japanese movie. Within minutes my upload queue maxed out (20 throttled to 90KB/s) and worked smoothly for about an hour. The bandwidth controls handled the load very well, both up and down, and didn't interfere with other browsing and net activities. Leafs and peers didn't seem affected either. Other than the HD working pretty hard, I couldn't tell LW was working so busily. Nice work on all the core features that are needed to make that happen

It can't seem to make up it's mind how many connections it wants. It did finally make the 5th connection some time during the night. I did finally get a UP connection this morning and it took about 15 min. to get to 30 peers but once it got there it stayed between 29 and 31 while searching and DL.

I got virtually the same results in UP and Leaf mode both good search and DL. While DL 20 consecutive files at a time 650Kb+ all files completed the resume feature appears to work well. No corrupt file messages.

This latest round of testing was done on a fresh reformat. Got a virus so I reformatted and re installed. (Win:32 Trojano-324) more on that in a latter post. But I figured since all was new I just as well try to reproduce some of the problems other are having.

When I first started running LimeWire I was using Windows firewall. With firewall properly configured LW detected a firewall when it should not have. No matter how I configured the firewall or what mode I ran in. IE manual port forward or UPnP. When I installed Norton Internet security and disabled windows firewall it no longer detected a firewall. It would not connect as a UP with windows firewall. I had a couple of install problems but they were not the fault of LW will elaborate on that latter.

Any way 4.9.29 seems to be working very well other than it can't decide how many connections it wants. I did not see the high memory usage that stief saw but I did not run in UP very long about a hour of heavy testing memory usage got to 75MB.

The screen shot below was taken a hour ago connections still the same so at this time I do not know if it will drop to 5 or not. Also I should add that I ran in leaf mode all night DL 0 / UL 5 at 45KB LW did go into sleep mode kept 1 connection and it did not have the disconnect message. When I woke it up it immediately went to 5 connections.

zab is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

4.9.29 fixes a serious bug which was causing nodes to think they were firewalled when they actually weren't. However, many ultrapeers will need to upgrade before the full effects of the fix can be felt.

I should have been a little clearer LimeWire worked fine with other Firewalls IE it did not detect as being firewalled and had no problem connecting as a UP. I found that LW preformed better for me as a UP than it has ever before with any previous version. LW is having a problem with the Windows firewall though. Unfortunately I do not know much about programing and can not give any clues as to why. I just know as a end user it is.

And by the way Congratulation 4.9.29 seems to be very stable in the connection department I had no problems at all with disconnects. And for some reason there is an improvement in the share department more of my files in my share folder appear to be available to others than in previous versions. I do not no if it was a intentional fix or accidental but Thanks.
