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.

Default Howto use Phex for LAN file sharing?

Hello,

We would like to use phex in our LAN, so we created a private network and we are able to connect to each other.

We can browser the shared file, however search does not work and if we would like to download something phex only writes: "Ignored Candidate (push route failed)".

Any ideas what could be wrong?

Thank you in advance, lg Clemens

As written in the Mail, the first thing I would test is, if the option "other nearby Phex running" is active.

If enabling that shouldn't solve the problem, we'd be glad, if you'd go bug hunting with us.

Gregor might have some more info.

Best wishes,
Arne

Yes "other nearby Phex running" was active all the time, although I am sure we also tried it with it disabled ;-)

Here is a bit more information about our configuration:

- 2 Machines, 192.168.48.175/177:5555, subnet-mask is 255.255.254.0
- Selected Network named "GasoB", same on both clients.
- Both clients forced to be an Ultrapeer
- Network-Panel-Screenshot attached to this post.
- Connected only "by hand", by going to "Gnutella Net" Tab and entering at 192.168.48.175: "192.168.48.177:5555" and vice versa. So each machine has the others phex instance once in the connection list. However Phex itself is not in "Connected" state (you can go to Menu->Network->Connect), since then it only would try to connect to thousands of others Networks which fails because we use "GasoB".

If I click in the "Gnutella Net"-Tab on "Browse Host" I can see the files the other client shares (this works on both clients), however when searching for stuff I always get zero results. Downloading stays in "Waiting" forever, with the following two messages I've seen till now:
1.) "Ignored Candidate (push route failed)"
2.) Candidate not available

Would it help if I log the communication of both with ethereal/wireshark and post it here?

Thanks a lot for your help, lg Clemens

I guess both clients appear to be firewalled, or? Check for a fire in the left corner of the status bar. This could maybe be the problem... though I'm not sure how to quickly solve this yet.

Default Hmm...

No, I don't see a fire-symbol anywhere with the "Gnutella Net" Tab open.
Both clients are not firewalled against each other and don't have personal firewalls installed (and also internet-access is available via NAT, but both clients have then the same external IP), but I guess I simply don't understand the problem ;-)

However because we would like to use this private-network for internal sharing we would like to avoid "external" connections as far as possible.

Thanks for helping, lg Clemens

Would it be possible for you to use the SVN source version from
https://phex.svn.sourceforge.net/svn...ase-line-3.0.x

and then patching it and compiling it... Just to check if the problem is where I assume it

You've impressed me, thanks for be willing to invest all the time into such a corner-case problem!
Ok, the downloaded stuff builds and runs fine ... so I am ready :-)

Currently I don't have any other peers available to make sure there's really no firefall-symbol there. If I connect to myself (using my own IP) I can see the fire-symbol.

I'll re-check as soon as I get access to a second computer.

Oh well... the change is not that big
In file /src/phex/net/Server.java Line 132 replace the Method with the following:

public boolean hasConnectedIncoming()
{
return true;
}

I'm not sure if this is the problem... but its maybe related... if it dosnt help i need to do some extended testing myself.

seems good so far (I can't currently only test with a singly client connected to itself), but in the evening I'll test and report more.

For now I'll have to go to university.

Thanks a lot for the help so far, lg Clemens
