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.

OK, moving along here as urs suggests...

This may help, or may not.. whatever.
This only works if you're having trouble getting connected to G1

I connect fine with G2.. but..sometimes when I've not been on the network for a while, I get the firewall warning simply because G1 hasn't connected

Shareaza reports it as a firewall problem, but...

Pssst... it's not...

Your G1 Host Cache is empty.. so...Hit F9, right-click one of your GWebCache's, then hit F8.. check to see if you get any results in the host cache window.

Try a few if you don't get any results

If you do get results, disconnect, then reconnect, and you should get G1 Ultrapeers

v2.4.0.0
but install it with a clean install...
uninstall the version before and then install the new one.

an the firewall issue...
first: try configurating everything with a different port (Shareaza, router, firewall, NAT)Use this guides to config your LAN devices and computer(s). Note that if there are more than one computer sharing the same internet gateway they all need to use different ports for Shareaza. Also try if disabling ALL security applications changes sth on the result of the test.

Default "Shareaza has detected that you are behind a NAT router or firewall..."

Hi,

I cannot get rid of the above message when I start Shareaza.

I am running Windows VISTA. I have turned off Windows Firewall, and turned off the Norton firewall trial version that came with the computer.

When I run the Shareaza Connection Test, it fails with this message: "TCP: The TCP connection has been refused, the port is closed." and "UDP: No answer has been received from your client."

I have setup a static IP on my computer and setup port forwarding on my Linksys wireless router for the default Shareaza port 6346. I also tried changing the Shareaza port to a higher number (16346) and setting up port forwarding again for this port.

Shareaza DOES connect to G1, G2, and eDonkey, but whenever I try to download something it just gets stuck in "pending" status. This occurred even for something that had 647 sources.

My ISP is Earthlink. I do not believe that I had this problem before I started using wireless, although I am not 100% sure. I do know that I was able to download through Shareaza when I was connected directly to DSL, but I am not sure if I had the "firewall" message before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Did you set within ShareAza that you are using port forwarding?
Make sure no other programs are using the same port because routers will reserve a single port per program & computer (internal ip address).

Question

Thank you for the quick reply, Lord of the Rings.

How would I set within Shareaza that I am using port forwarding?
The only thing I did within Shareaza is first I left the default port as "6346", and when that didn't work I tried changing it to "16346". Of course, I restarted Shareaza each time I made changes.

I am pretty sure no other programs are using the same ports since I have tried two different ports, but how would I find this out for sure? Shareaza is the only program I set up port forwarding for on my router.

Also, in case you're wondering, I am running the latest Shareza, 2.4 (not the fake one).

Thanks again.

You don't have to set it within Shareaza. It has to be done in the router (and/or NAT/modem) and in your respective firewall (if you own one). You will see that it worked once you pass the connection test.


If you have precise questions on how to do that, ask!

Old Death - Thanks for the answer. I already did set the port forwarding in my wireless router. Apparently it didn't work, since I never pass the connection test. I followed the instructions from the Shareaza Wiki, and the PortForward.org site referenced therein, which contained instructions tailored to my router, a Linksys WRT54G2.

I went to the Applications & Gaming section and under Port Range Forward entered Start port 16346 To port 16346 (I also tried port 6346), which is the port I set in Shareaza, and set Protocol to Both. I entered the static ip address which I set in Network connections and verified via ipconfig (I also tried two different IP addresses in case there was some issue with that), and I checked the Enable box. Then I clicked Save Settings, and it says settings successfully saved.

I turned off Windows Firewall and Norton Firewall, and I don't believe I have any other. Could this have something to do with settings on my DSL Modem (ZyXEL P-600)?

Anyway, Shareaza keeps giving me that firewall warning and I always fail the connection test, but it seems to be downloading ok now. So I guess it's a mystery of little significance now.

The problem comes probably from your modem. I suppose your internet cable goes first in the modem and then from the modem to your router and from there to your computer? In this case, you will have to forward the traffic from your modem first to your router and from your router to your computer.

And: no, this is not of little significance, since it will prevent you from downloading faster than ~60% of the max speed (and many downloads will not start at all)...
