Thumbs up almost-freeze on connect solved


I was working on an application of mine, which didn't want to connect to the internet. Reason: Open Transport error -3158. Fortunately, I always check for errors and quickly found the cause. It appears that particular router configurations cause this error. Probably, there are more causes of this error.

After removing my router, I fired up LimeWire without a problem.

Removing the router also meant changing TCP/IP settings and limiting the Mac's network interface (AppleTalk) to remote access only.

This is not an apparent fix, it is a definite solution.

Please, developers, make sure that LimeWire checks Open Transport availability. If it gets an error, have LW report it in an error dialog and let it exit. This will avoid a lot of frustrations.
