can't connect to limewire, have been able to connect to Bearshare in the past
I used to use Bearshare as my file-sharing program, but it no longer works, so I downloaded limewire. However, I cannot get limewire to connect.

I have Windows XP and a windows firewall.

My internet is a DSL connection--

Speedstream 5200 Ethernet/USB ADSL Modem

i am connecting from home and my ISP is Alltel.

I am using LimeWire 4.10.0 and Java 1.5.0_02

When i visit it says that The page cannot be displayed.

This is my first try at Limewire.

Please help me if you can, thanks!!

Did you configure your firewall so it allows LW full access (advisable not to have 2 active firewalls b/c they can interfere with each other); Firewall configuration instructions (click on link)

Manual port forwarding as described here
(a) (i) Set up a static ip, then (ii) forward port 6346, & also here as the last step
(b) Manual port forward instructions & sample image & 2 posts after that.

BTW after you log into your Speedstream 5200, see if it has UPnP options. Tell us if it does so you might be able then to skip the above steps.

Surely you are a Mac platform issue forum??

We help people with Windows, too! :) I believe help for both operating systems was available through the links provided.

Can't connect to limewire
Using Windows Vista, done it the way Limewire told me but still no Luck. I paid for the Pro Lime Wire, used it for almost a year-LimeWire Pro but now since I re-new it for Lime Wire pro now it don't connect. Downloaded it and I get a bar but get no connection. I tried downloading Lime Wire without my McAfee Able, un-installed Lime Wire and downloaded again and still no connection. Frustrated and Angry on what to do next. Contact Lime Wire and of course they blame McAfee. I blame Lime Wire! Can some-one Please give me idea's to try next to make this work. Thanks
