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.

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.

Unhappy Can't upload files. Export Host IP as:?

I would like to share files, but despite many files, some quite popular, in my 'shared' directories, I have not had any uploads.
My PC has a private IP add., due to a router and switch between the cable modem and PC. I have read elsewhere that: " If you can connect, search and download you don't have to worry about port forwarding or anything of that nature as these activities prove that you can talk to the network."

I am downloading okay, but uploads just aren't happening.
If I check the router and obtain my current Internet Port (Public?) IP, and enter it into the
Setting->Phex Options->General Settings->Firewall/Proxy ...box for "Export Host IP as:",
...will that allow other users to download from me, finally?
What else can I do to make my files accessible?

Win NT4 SP6a. Phex 0.8.0.33

Hi...

Have you ever seen Incoming connections in the network tab? Or only Outgoing? If you see Incoming connections then clients are able to reach you and you should also be able to upload.

Usually Phex is able to determine your external IP from other hosts on the network. We you connect to a host the host informs Phex about its external IP. Sometime this can be inaccurate. Just compare the IP Phex uses after connection to the network with your current Internet IP. If they dont match you must export your IP.
But what you need to use on your router or switch is port forwarding. If Phex runs on port 2222 you need to tell your router that incoming request on port 2222 should be forwarded to your local ip on port 2222.

Also you can read this for some more information:

Thanks, Gregor. I Enabled port forwarding, using the Phex "Listening port," and exported my ("Internet port" on the LAN) host IP, and it now seems to be working.
I assume by "incoming connections" you referred to the "messages" report on the Gnutella Net tab? I had been getting LOTS of those. Now finally I can make some of those hits work for my peers....

A developer helping an end-user? Unheard-of kindness. Thanks again.

I'm having the same problem, apparently. I see no incoming hits. I've tried exporting my IP address, but apparently nobody knows I'm here with files to share. I'm able to download with ease, but can't seem to cross the upload hurdle. I'm running on OSX. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

If you cant see incoming connections on the Gnutella Net tab something blocks others from connecting to you and you will most likely not see any uploads either.

Incoming connections are much more likely to happen compared to uploads. After a few minutes you should see incoming connections.

Do you have anything between Phex and the internet? Like a firewall, proxy, router, security software what ever. Or maybe are in a compay network?
These are all things that can keep connections coming through to you.

Gregor

Default uploads

Thank you for your reply. I do now see 1 incoming, but still my upload screen won't allow me to share. I believe I'm doing something wrong with my directory, since I see no files on the the upload tab. I've basically set my itunes up as THE directory. Is there some kind of help somewhere concerning directory use? Thanks for helping this newbie!

Wink review

Hello, Moses
Beyond which OS you're using, are you behind a router? Or is your machine a standalone? Using personal firewall software?
In my case, I had to set up port forwarding, which is a router function, because my machine was sharing an internet connection on a LAN.
I misunderstood Gregor's question about incoming connections, because I was not seeing the entire content of the "Gnutell Net" tab. The program has a GUI problem with my WIN-NT machine, in which the tabs, buttons, etc. all lack shading and outlines. So often there are things missing from my screen, and I didn't realize that I could pull down the section that displays Connections:
"Remote Host," "Vendor," "Type," "Mode" etc., Below all that info is:
"My Address", which displays the IP address that Phex is communicating to our Gnutella peers. Anyway, in the "Type" column and mentioned above, there is either an "out" or "in" designation. SOMEtimes, at least, after being connected for a while, you should see one or more "In" type connections.
Another possibility is that the number of files you are sharing is small, and no one has tried (by chance) to search download them?
The "Share" tab also has a pulldown section that displays your shared files, and among other info, the "Search count" and "Upload Count." Can you see all that?

Default Setting Phex Options

So you have navigated through "Setting"--> "Phex Options" ->"Download/Sharing Settings" -->Directories--> and then in the "Shared Directory Settings" area, clicked on "add" and set up a directory that contains music files?
That should do it. The files should appear (it may take a little while) in the "Shared Files" pulldown section of your "Share" tab...
