2. OS version? (example: Windows 98)
Windows 7 Ultimate
3. Is this a your 1st try at using the program or is this a new problem with an experienced user?
My first time using Phex
Use to use Limewire a lot, its been about 3 years since then, I mostly use utorrent, but gnutella has always been easier for me to find and download individual songs.

yes, i have 3tb of free space

avg free (No firewall)

Your Network Connection:
I have a VPN! Private internet access.

8. Connection type?

9. Modem & router brand name & model numbers?
Netgear, but when i pull up the network map, it doesn't show up on there... it just shows a "Gateway"
(because of my vpn)


Firmware Version V1.0.0.34_29.0.45NA
10. Where are you trying to connect from?

Its timewarner, but its not them blocking it... all my data is encrypted through my VPN

My VPN allows me to "Live" in 10 different countries.
I usually have it connected to a USA location.

Other information:

I use Utorrent, but I have utorrent off when trying to use Phex
14. For those using a modem/router, how is your modem/router set up...are you port forwarding or is UPnP enabled?
UPnP is enabled.
If you look at the image I added of my VPN, it has Port forwarding, I tried that with no success.

15. Has anything in your setup changed recently? Have you updated your program version or Java? Have you added any new software or new hardware? Have you updated any software? Have you moved house, changed internet plan or ISP etc etc?
Nope, just installed Phex. thats it.
