Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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. 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.

I am the same! Frostwire has always worked fine for me before so I know it is nothing to do with my computer. Have you managed to resolve it yet?

If anyone could tell me the port number for Frostwire then I will try adding that into websites I can access in my Norton Firewall.

The default port is 6346 but you can use any of the 'legal' unused port range. Not sure why we should answer you when you refuse to answer us. Have you looked at the UK isp's that block or shape p2p; ISP's known to BLOCK or Filter p2p or specifically Limewire

Good luck with your endeavors anyway.

Thank you - but I am a bit thick when it comes to technical stuff like the HUGE list of questions you asked! I am thick!

Yesterday i dowlaoded FrostWire. It just had starting connection so i uninstalled and installed it again. Then it works and i dowloaded lots :-).
Today it just has starting connection. The firewall logo is there.
Here is my details.

1. OS version? windows XP
2. What firewalls you have? possibly the windows one, no others.
3. How much ram? I don't know, but it worked once and i have not changed any software since then.
4. Hard Disk space available? 6.79 GB
5. Connection type? (eg: dialup, broadband, cable, etc.) Braodband ADSL
6. Modem & router brand name & model numbers? I connect access 621
7. Where are you trying to connect from (house, appartment complex, school, student accomodation, work, etc.)? House
8. What version of LimeWire (LW) & Java do you have? (Go to LW's menu Help>About LW...) Will show both LW & Java version. I don't have limewire, how do i find JAVA?
9. Who is your ISP provider (Internet Service Provider)? Iprimus
10. Do this simple test for us. Using your browser go here: http://www3.limewire.com:6346/ The page should say 'Your test worked!'. What happens when you go there? It works
11. Are you sharing the connection with other computers or p2p sharing programs? If yes, please give details of set up. The modem connects is connected to both computers. One ethernet, one USB.
12. Is this a your 1st try at LW or is this a new problem with an experienced user. I have used KAzaa and limewire and the both worked but they were really slow.
13. Do you see a brick wall in front of the blue world icon at the bottom of LW's interface? Yes.

I think i need to disablt the windows firewall, but i don't know how to find the settings, i don't know if my modem has any kind o firewall.

Sorry, i am not very good with computers. ;-)
Thankyou for your help.

To find your Java, go to FW's menu > help > about FW. Exactly the same as LW.

Check that the XP firewall still has ports allowed for FW (or Gnutella), same as it did when you set things up originally. If you're not sure about the settings, click on this link & it will tell you how to set up the firewall. Better to have it set up than disabled:wink:
Firewall setup

Your modem-router does have a firewall. AFAIK your router supports UPnP. Try enabling it in the router & choosing that option in FW's tools > options > advanced > firewall config.

Or you can try port forwarding. Click on the link below. Don't forget the static IP setup.
