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.

The instructions for setting up a static ip are basically the same for all models. There's a link to how to do it.

Also it should explain in your manual how to do it. I also have a D-Link & my manual does give some explanations. Yours I suspect is this one: http://www.dlink.co.uk/?go=jN7uAYLx/...Jk6j8rFivsyg== else type in your model.

Port Forward.com does not list all models. So if your model is not there it's difficult to know whether port forwarding is possible or not with it. But download the manual & have a look. Then you'll find out whether it's possible or not.

Normally the steps are:
1. Set up a Static IP
2. Forward a Port
3. Force IP using 6346 within LW.

Okay I checked. I had already set up the static IP. So now when I set up the port in D-Link website, which protocol should I enabled, TCP or UDP or both?

Okay so this is what I do

1. Go to command prompt and type in ipconfig - Private IP
2. Go to D-Link website where I set up the forwarding
3. Add Private IP in Local IP
4. In both Start Port and End Port, it will be 6346
5. Protocol will be both
6.CLick enabled and apply
7. Go to Limewire and then Firewall
8. Click on Force IP and Port will be 6346 and apply it

Is that all I have to do? Now I should see huge increase in downloading speed right? Remember I have ultra fast connection, 5 Mbps= 500 KB per sec and more than 300 upload. When I download from any sever except for peer to peer network, I could download at full speed. But before this I could only download less than 20 KB per sec most of the time IN Limwire. So if I am downloading from cable user and it is good connection, I should go over 100 KB downloading speed most of the time right?

Waiting for your respond Lord Of The Ring

That all sounds right yes. But check your D-Link manual. With my D-Link 504G I had to reboot the modem after completing the port forwarding.

These are instructions for the D-Link 504G on a Mac. But this is a different model!!!

Does this IP Static also apply when it comes to hosting the game? Because when I was able to host the game for a month now without having to change anything. Does this mean I am using Static IP? Is setting up Port Forwarding for the game same as Limewire?

Advanced games you play over the internet will also need to have ports opened depending on the needs of the particular game. You will need to read the game's instructions (manual) about whether & what ports need to be opened for that reason. Same principle applies. It's exactly the same but will use different port numbers. I've never done port forwarding for 2 purposes, but I'd suggest they'd be best as separate listings as port forwarding (ie: do a separate port forwarding.)

That's werid, because the only way I can set up the IP and port is having to go through "Port Forwarding". This is what I have to enter when entering Port Forwarding

Local IP Adr/ Start Port/ End Port/ Protocol Enabled

I do not see any virtual sever so this may be my only opition. But maybe I am suppose to use this one Port Triggering but you do not enter IP Adress, maybe it is already applyed. Let me show you what it look like.

Trigger Range /Target Range Protocol Enable

Start Port /End Port /Start Port/ End Port


So I think I am supposed to use Port Forwarding, maybe not?

Really good that this thread is helping people...

If it wasn't, there would be many, many posts from VERY unhappy people blasting smitty_the_smith, fabion, LotR (who deserves at least a daily blasting, anyway), et et voilà... (Who we all know requires at a minimum an hourly blasting !)
