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.

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 Firewall playing up after limewire closes

Okay, i've looked on here and can't find anyone else with this problem.

Once i close Limewire Pro (4.2.6), i constantly get messages from my firewall saying "A remote System is attempting to access your computer", then it lists time, date, IP address of computer trying to get access to the computer, and it gives an option to allow, block or manually configure the access from the computer. This happens about once every three minutes once i've closed Limewire Pro, and never any other time, and it's always from a different IP address, and it's always UDP (inbound) protocol.

I've checked the firewall settings, Limewire has permission, and the port for Limewire is open.

I'm running....

Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
The latest version of "Norton Internet Security" (Norton Firewall + Norton Anti-virus).
I have a 256kbps ADSL connection on a Speedtouch 530 external modem (Australian model as far as i know)

It's damn annoying and it only happens after i close Limewire Pro.
I have tried Disconnecting from the network before closing LW Pro, and i've tried pausing all my downloads and cancelling the uploads manually before closing LW pro, but nothing happens.

As far as i could find, overall the version is "Norton Internet Security 2004"

Individually, the component parts are:
Norton Internet Security version 7.0.6.17
Norton Anti-Virus 10.0.15.13.


Thanks,

Aussie

Did you realise your modem has a NAT firewall? If you're getting uploads then either they're push requests or you've already forwarded a port for LW.

Tools>Options>Shutdown, is yours set for shutdown immediately or after transfers?

Do you run as an Ultrapeer?

Is your XP firewall turned on or off? Did you configure it for LW: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/firewalls.shtml

Do you have spyware & ad-ware eg: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
Spybot - Search & Destroy: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html or
Spy Sweeper: http://www.webroot.com/wb/downloads/index.php

When did this problem start? Was it after you installed any softw?

Default Norton Personal Firewall

Dear Aussie86

I use Norton Personal Firewall 2003 and, coincidentally, a Speedtouch external (330 UK model) modem. And I found that whenever I turned on my PC I would get intrusion alerts from my own default windows IP address.

After an incident, where my son had downloaded something that had disabled my firewall, I checked out the Symantec website for help. Symantec advised that I delete the firewall, using control panel's Add/Remove facility, I kept the firewall's settings during deletion, and then do a reinstall, which I did.

I found that after reinstallation the "start up alerts" stopped and all my installed "rules" worked better. It seems that NPF can get "confused" by all the configuration settings it's asked to perform.

The deletion process cleared up this "confusion/small corruption" problem and set everything straight and pristine again.

Although I have not used NIS 2005, I have a copy and intend to install it when my current subscription runs out, I believe some "small corruptions" have crept into your product. And, possibly, deletion and reinstallation will clear this, but remember to keep your firewall settings.

Okay, i've tried uninstalling NIS and reinstalling it again, but nothing worked. I've tried looking to see if i've got spyware, but i don't.

I just realised that all these blocked intrustions are on port 6346 (the one that Limewire uses). but this is after i've closed Limewire down (hit the X in the top corner, sending it to the taskbar, then right clicking on that icon and clicking "close immediately". So, therefore i guess that somehow, after i've closed Limewire permanently, i'm still somehow connected to the gnutella network. I don't get any of these blocked intrustions when Limewire is running, because it's allowed to use the port, and since limewire is now closed, i'm think the blocked intrusions must be ppl attempting to access uploads through whatever way i'm still connected to the gnutella network, as Limewire is the only thing allowed to access port 63446 and nothing else, and sometnhing else must be trying to access it, or Limewire isn't totally closed down properly.


Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

I've also tried uninstalling Limewire and installing it again.

Thanks


Aussie

Are you running as an Ultrapeer? If yes, then there are people going thru you to help them connect. This is a good thing, but may have a delayed action when closing LW down.

Do you have your LW Shutdown set to shutdown immediately or wait until transfer completes?

in reply:

no i'm not running as an ultrapeer.

I've got Java 1.4.2_06. I'm getting Version 1.5 now. I'll say if that does anything.

General Advice for anyone else who has this problem...


DO NOT UPGRADE TO JAVA 1.5.

I'm now getting blocked intrustion attempts as soon as the computer starts, before i've even gone into LimeWire!!!!!!! and they're all from Port 6346, and i'm getting about two per minute.


in reply to posts:

I've got limewire set to close after transfers are complete, but ususally i close limewire so it's running in the background (taskbar tray icon), and then right click and "Close Immediately"
