Moderators

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.

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.

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.

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.

Default Firewall/NAT issue

Hi there - new to the forum - hope someone can help

For the life of me I cant seem to get much success in uploading - i can tell people the exact filename of what i'm sharing but they just dont hit me when searching.

When I look at tools/options/bug reports I always show up as a shielded leaf and "received incoming this session = false" which I understand says i'm behind a firewall.

My setup is a Linksys Wireless Router with Firewall turned off, and a Zoomx2 ADSL modem with Firewall turned off (on a network with 2 other PCs). Under options I have "Force IP" enabled

What I don't understand is the difference between NAT and Firewall - the Zoom modem has a NAT configuration screen but I have no idea what I need to do.

Any help gratefully received

Since you've already port forwarded on LW & forced ip, see both: http://portforward.com/routers.htm for your particular Linksys model of router AND your Zoom modem. Also see: Firewall & Port Setting - Some Useful Links If there's still problems setting it up, it might also be a good idea to talk to support for your modem/isp to find out more specific details for your particular modem & opening up port 6346 or other for port forwarding. Tell us how you go.

Thanks for the info but still no joy - port forwarding set up on both modem and router but still shows me as a shielded leaf and nothing inbound.

OK I'm relatively new at this area. Can you tell me the models of modem & router you have. Are you sure you saved all your settings on these 2 devices? Which OS version are you running? If it's Win XP have you applied the SP2 to it? Also your 'nothing inbound' comment did that apply to checking your Bug Report (instructions link)?

Win XP - SP2 with Firewall turned off.

Linksys WRT54G router
Zoom X3 (not x2 as stated above) ADSL modem

I have looked at the bug report as I saw an earlier topic where you recommended looking at that

You did a port forwarding for your modem If it still says "received incoming this session:false" with the infos you gave, it's probably only an error in the router config. Are you sure LW use port 6346 (look in options advanced)? You forwarded that port in router? Is your computer on a static IP ie 192.168.1.5 instead of 192.168.1.100?

Bonne chance

Yep - checked the port number and ensured thats right. I dont think it is a static IP address but that said it hasnt changed in a long time so I know it is the right IP address (double checked).

I'm stumped !

Any more ideas any one ? I've been sat with Limewire running for about 6 hours and although I've had >30 hits on the files I'm sharing I've had no uploads and one guy has told me he tried to download but just got "need more sources".

Any help gratefully received.

Please configure your computer to get a static IP from the router first. Then portforward for that address. This will at least lower the possible causes of problem. http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm Also, the zoom x3 modem seems to be also a router. The best would be to configure your lan IP as DMZ. Look there for more infos http://www.askmarvin.ca/forums/index.php?showtopic=844

I'm not familiar as two bypass to routers... You'll have to do googling, but if you find the solution come back here to tell us please!

Bonne chance

Hmmm... the half-bridge option is one that Zoom suggested to me but only having one of 3 machines able to access the web is no use to me.

I wonder if I ultimately need to ditch my Zoom x3 for another modem that supports UPnP ?

Sadly I'm in the dark as to a) what that implies and b) whether most modems these days support it !

Have set up static IP address but my IP address hasnt changed in ages

Not sure how you put the LAN IP into the DMZ... modem's IP address is 10.0.0.2 - you mean put that into its own DMZ ? Will that work ?

Lnksys Router doesnt seem to have a DMZ section
