Mac OSX Connection Problems Using Limewire Basic 4.2.3
 
Thought a thread for Mac OSX users would be helpful. No connect-o. I've tried all the fixes mentioned. Downloaded the "purger.jar" and ran it with Limewire shut down. Closed the "tips" and "Connect on startup" commands. It just sits there.

With Limewire Basic on the Mac, there are 5 gradiated bars in the lower lefthand corner (ala cell phone bars) and when I hit the connect command from the menu the lowest bar turns green (the other 4 remain red) and it states that I am "connecting" but never moves on to "connected."

I've shut off my firewalls. My IP has a automatic proxy. Could that be the problem? I am also running "Content Barrier X" which I have set to block all pornography. Is this a problem.

Inquiring minds want to know. (I am rather glad I didn't have to pay for this.)

Any type of firewall is a potential cause to block LW's access. What brand name & model numbers of modem & router do you use? If you require port forwarding you will need to set up a static ip. If yo need to do the latter I can give instructions how to do. Which OSX version do you have?

I've got an eMac and am running OSX 10.2.8. I'm cabled into a network on our college campus.

That's probably why you can't connect! Nowadays many colleges deliberately block p2p use b/c it uses up too much bandwidth & dwnld totals which they pay big money for. You can try to force ip: Force IP instructions & sample image Else try other port no.'s You should ask the network staff if they block p2p.
