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 Connection problem with ALL p2p programs, (help wanted)

I cannot connect to ANY P2P program i download and run. These include, Limewire, Shareazaa, Bittorrent, WinMX, BearShare and many more. I am running a computer with is on a home network, and it is the same for the other two computers on this netwrok. For months these programs have been working (mainly limewire i use) and all of a sudden dont, even tho i have changed no settings. The router has an in built hardware firewall which is always disabled. I have also disabled Windows XP firewall and tried to run the programs again and there is the same problem. I have opened the port for limewire and again no change. Can anyone help me? i do no think it is the Firewall which is causing the problem.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, i dont know, please move it if it is

all the apps you mention (mostly gnutella) are high profile, with known (and therefore easily blockable) ports...it is probable that your ISP has started blocking these ports, hence you can't get connected

I have done it exactly how it says on that website. I do not think it is a Firewall issue. I have tried

Both firewalls off
Windows firewall off, router firewall on with ports forwarded
windows firewall on, router firewall off
windows firewall on ports forwarded, router fire on ports forwarded,

I have tried this on all three computers on the network. I have noticed that i can connect from first thing in the morning, till about 11am GMT, which is the time the americans will be waking up. I was wondering if that has anything to do with it

ok, I AM NOT A NOOB WHEN IT COMES TO NETWORKING, can u please read the posts a bit better instead of giving me links to tell me something i did a month ago



I am after someone to help me. I have now disconnected my network, and connected to the internet through the origonal modem, which has no firewall. I have forwarded the posts for Limewire on Windows Firewall, and also disconnected it, but am still having trouble connecting to limewire. I noticed that even tho i have no firewalls, the firewall icon is still on the bottom of limewire. Any help?

maybe not a n00b, but certainly a whiner...

again, widely known ports, and easily blockable...so what if somebody you 'know' is on the same ISP...is he down the block, or in a different city?....different managers, and different nodes on the same ISP...

The_Point being that maybe ports are being blocked, maybe they are being throttled, and maybe not...I just had this problem with BitTorrent...I manually forced the ports to a totally different range, and BINGO, I was connectable...since yur not a n00b, I'm sure you can figure out how to try it yourself...

go into the settings for whatever client you are using and look for the entry that specifies the ports used...change them from the most likely default of 6348 (gnutella clients) to something else...
