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 Direct Conect Behind Network. Possible?

Im trying to send my girlfriend holiday photos, through limewire with Direct Conect. I have a dialup so its the easiest way really...

My setup is straight 56k Dialup into the wall.
Her setup is, she has a host computer plugged into DSL Internet into the wall, then her computer is wireless networked to the internet through this computer. She has a little chip sitting on her computer to recieve the signal and all

We have sent the file to 46% then i had a problem and it disconected, and now cant conect to each other again.
It says on hers, Windows firewall is either blocking this, or this computer is conected behind a router.

Am i right saying it is actually conected behind a router? since her sisters host computer is the host. And if that is right then there has to be a way around it cuz i conected and sent 46% of it. I just dont know how i did it lol.
So how do u find her IP address on her computer, and once i have it how do i conect around the router? Its not really a router but its a network so i dno...

I know its a mouthful but id really think it were quite simple lol
Thanks for any help!

Hi ice

The easiest way would be for her to direct connect to you. If you are on dial-up, your IP address might change each time you log on.

The next time you are online, copy and paste the IP and port info seen above the Direct Connect box to her.

You could also send her a "magnet link," which would automatically find your file. Control-click a file in your Library that you want to send, and look for the Advanced->Copy magnet details.

If she pastes that magnet link in her browser window, it should fire up her LW, and begin downloading.

If she direct connects me then Only she can browse my shared files i cant actually see hers.

The real problem is why does it read she is behind a router at her end instead of giving her an IP address. Does she need to foward the port limewires listening on to the router somehow? Will this fix the message?

Cheers for fast feedback

Get her to check her external ip. If it starts with 192 or 10 then you most likely won't be able to direct connect to her as those ip's represent being behind a network. Perhaps she could have a look at the tips here: Connection problems? Check here first! to configure properly. Wireless connections almost always have NAT firewalls. The question is whether hers supports UPnP & whether it's enabled & whether it works reliably. Also her software firewall on her computer might be an issue. That could help to explain the irregular connections between you.

If one of you are downlding from the other, then you should be able to browse each other. One from the downld window, the other from the upload pane of the LW Monitor window. Magnet link sounds like the way to go. Direct Connect tends to be difficult. You can't direct connect thru a non-configured firewall (ie: configured to allow LW full access.) There also needs to be open slots & bandwidth on both of your LW's.
