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.

Default Organisations trying to connect via Port 6346

Dear LW Folks

I have recently installed Peer Guardian (V1.99b r14) and found out that my PC is under attack from far more than just criminals and miscreants.

Believe it or not PG reported that NASA, Microsoft (UK), a scientific institute and some other sites trying to get into my computer.

Now why does these "agencies" and fakers want rummage around inside my (and all of our) PCs?

When I 1st read your post I thought hey ... but I've seen other reports that suggest it's very good.

http://www.techzonez.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4160

Crappy Spywares that are spies & supplementary
Sneaky devils! Here's some other comments I read:


Tweakers Tip: Block the RIAA

PeerGuardian is a free program that hides your file sharing from known RIAA informants.

You have a firewall to keep out hackers, so why not have a firewall to keep out the RIAA? If you're running Windows, PeerGuardian does just that.

Keep RIAA informants off your case
Each time you launch PeerGuardian, it downloads the latest list of known RIAA informants and blocks them from connecting to your computer. The list contains hundreds of known IP-address ranges the RIAA has used to catch file swappers.

Does PeerGuardian offer 100 percent protection? No. If an unknown RIAA informant sneaks through, you're still busted.

Remember, the best way to not get caught is to not share pirated files. Support the musicians or movies you love and pick up a CD or DVD. Then share it. (Just kidding.)

Get PeerGuardian now. It's free! Is a tiny firewall program especially designed for P2P software users

PeerGuardian is a tiny firewall program especially designed for P2P software users, but also to anyone who is concerned about the investigations that corporations and authorities perform on the internet. PeerGurdian blocks connections for the configured IP ranges and logs the blocked connections. It uses an online IP database for the blocking, but IP ranges can also be configured manually. Pre-cofigured for blocking are RIAA, MPAA and many others.

Default Organisations looking inside your PC

Dear LOTR (and others interested in PC Security)

I have just gone through my Peer Guardian log and found that the following organisations tried repeatedly, and failed, to connect themselves to my PC:

Naval Research Laboratory Stennis Space Center Bay, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), NHI-NETWORKS-FAKES, City of Halifax, Myrias Computer Technologies Inc Canada, Communications Resources, United States Navy, National Science Foundation, INRIA, FTP Software Inc., MCA, Microsoft London Internet Data Center and RealNetworks Inc.

I ask these questions knowing that I will never get an answer but why would NASA, the US Navy, some computer company in Canada, etc. want to look at my PC? What right do they have to try and invade my privacy?

It is bad enough that I have to try and protect myself from criminals, phisers and hackers but now I have to protect myself from foreign (US and Canadian) agencies and companies.

This just makes me feel sick.

I would say that most of those reports are false alarms. Most of the time those agencies aren't actually trying to connect to your computer. It's probably mostly just port scanning. It is someone on a PG blacklisted IP range ping-sweeping the IP range you are on. It seems that the purpose of that would be to se all of the computers that have port 6346 open. Take a look at this to keep track of what ports are active on your machine. As long as you have a good firewall (ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Sygate...), PeerGaurdian, and the Active Ports tool you should be safe from prying eyes. Just remember, don't get too alarmed over what you see on the logs of ZoneAlarm or PeerGaurdian. Good luck.
