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.

Exclamation macXster has been /. ?

Mac Users:

Congratulations to the MacPhex users! The site has been suspended by Apple for excessive bandwidth use! To make things worse the redirecting url will be down for a few days. When the site comes back online, you will still be able to go to it via: or you can go now and marvel at the temporally suspended sign. You can still download MacPhex 0.7.1 from here but the update program will not work until the normal site is back.

Any one who would like to help by mirroring please send an email to I'll keep you updated to when we have more mirrors and / or the site comes back online.

Site's back and we're in the process of buying a new server.
Update 2
We have our new server and domain:

If I were you I would mirror it on gnutella, and at the same time make gnutella a contender to the internet. (multi-source download, huge bandwith savings, this web site is powered by thousands of volunteers...)

Dream on!

The new Phex is cool. It is good that I can shose 56k moden and isdn as a connection, because I have only ISDN and it would be like lying to the other user if I can only shose DLS as the slowest connection.
The Only thing I don't like, are the little Icons next to the "Gnutella Net", "Search" Button and the other Buttons.
An Option to ignore people who don't share any files will be good.

Default Very Nice - Only a few things:

First it used to be that Remove Download would not delete the downloaded file if it was done ! I just found out the hard way now it does ! - this is a mayor bummer ...

Second the bandwidth usage in the network tab used to show the network traffic now it shows the combined traffic
maybe it would be nice to keep it separated ? Or separated as incoming/outgoing traffic ? With long-term average ?

I used to be able to push the program to search again by use of the 'Stop Search' 'Start Search' buttons now one of them is gone -Maybe it would be nice to have that type of control still ?


Otherwise great improvement of the programs efficiency ! I really think it gets candidates to send more easily ... is that because it use some form of multicast for the shared content ???

Thanks Guys !!!

Cool Correct myself ...

After reading in the other Tread I checked and found the removed download wasn't really gone it was just in the Phex Program Folder ...

Much Better !
BTW I am using Sun JSDK 1.4 on Mandrake 8.2 i586

Arrow Other curiosities

Why doesn't the download start at 0 ?
I have seen it a few times now it starts wit 1MB skipping the first meg - so I cant preview the content till I find a second server or at least get another chance to connect , why ?

Also I think it would now soon be nice and necessary to start developing some kind of verify and repair mode in which instead of a download a system could ask some md5sums of segments to search and find problems and then if it found the difference request that specific segment ...

I think this will be necessary because we just increased the number of chances to get faulty files now its time to talk about adding some solutions...

I like the new version – especially swarming – but I miss the retry counter and the log feature. Could they be reimplemented (at least the counter) ?

Two small bugs :
- The "Abort upload" button is always greyed out, wether an upload is selected or not.
- All my downloads have a "queued" status whereas they actually have no candidates. Is it a bug or only new terminology ?

Default Bug in 0.7.1 with not being able to connect?

For some reason after running Phex for several hours, it can no longer connect to _any_ Gnutella hosts. As well it just keeps spawning new processes that never seem to die. I'm up to about 500 right now, after 5hours of uptime, and I've seen it go as high as 1000. I have to quit Phex and restart it then it seems fine for a few more hours afterwards. Has anyone else noticed this?

I noticed it after 2 hours of uptime. I dont know where it comes from. I was thinking my ISP has blocked the ports.
