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.

Question Problemas de conexión/Connection problems

Tengo una conexión normal a la Red (RTB a 33,6) y cuando abro el Limewire 2.7.3 me dice que no puede encontrar ningún puerto para escuchar otras conexiones, es decir, que no encuentra puertos de salida de información de mi ordenador. Estoy utilizando en ZoneAlarm Pro y me he leido las FAQ y los foros tanto de LimeWire como de otros programas basados también en el protocolo Gnutella como BearShare. No consigo hacer que el programa se conecte a la Red. ¿Cómo puedo hacer que desaparezcan estos problemas? ¿Alguien me puede ayudar? ¿Dónde hay un chat de usuarios de LimeWire o algún sitio de soporte del programa? Hace tiempo que usé el Gnutella de Nullsoft (los del Winamp) pero solo conseguí conectarme una vez. ¿Alguien puede hecharme una mano con este tema? (Además veo que no soy el único, los desarrolladores de LimeWire podrían escribir algo al respecto; ellos o cualquiera que le funcione el programa y sepa de que va la cosa).
Muchas gracias por adelantado al que responda.
No se si se podrá pero esta es mi dirección:
Hi people. I got the LimeWire 2.7.3 and I can´t connect to the Gnutella Net. How I could solve this? I´m behind a firewall. When I run the program it told me that it couldn´t find listening ports to established a connection. I couldn´t either connect to Gnutella Net. What can I do? Could someone help me? I read the FAQ of LimeWire and other clients like BearShare but I found nothing. If someone could help me I would be very pleased!
Thank you for reading this.
Here is my email if you want to tell me something:

Try this:

Download the latest version of LimeWire or you could talk to your Internet Service Provider and see if they have Gnutella blocked or something.

EDIT: Read this.

Wink Thank you very much!

Thank you for your information but I think would trie a another thing. Could somebody tell me which ports uses the LimeWire to connect to Gnutella Net? I´m behind a firewall (ZoneAlarm) and I open port number 6346 for outgoing connections but what about for incoming? Do everybody know the ports except me. I´m sure I could solve this problem without changing LimeWire by another software. If I ("finally") could connect to Gnutella Net I promise I would help to translate into Spanish some Documents about connecting. Please help.
Thank you LimeDude for your information, thank you so much! and sorry about my awful english!!!. :-)
Keep walking!

Open port 6346 for outgoing and incoming and make sure you configured LimeWire to listen on port 6346 (in the options).
