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 Limewire Keeps Shutting Down after 5-30 minutes of it running

After I startup LW, it shuts down again on it's own after any other warning. I searched the forums, found this, went through all the steps, but now it shuts down even faster.

What else should I do to prevent this from happening?

Quote:
Could you supply these details please...
1. OS version? (eg: Windows 98)
2. What firewalls you have?
3. How much ram?
4. Hard Disk space available?
5. Connection type? (eg: dialup, broadband, cable, etc.)
6. Modem & router brand name & model numbers?
7. Where are you trying to connect from (house, appartment complex, school, student accomodation, work, etc.)?
8. What version of LimeWire (LW) & Java do you have? (Go to LW's menu Help>About LW...) Will show both LW & Java version.
9. Who is your ISP provider (Internet Service Provider)?
10. Do this simple test for us. Using your browser go here: http://www3.limewire.com:6346/ The page should say 'Your test worked!'. What happens when you go there?
11. Are you sharing the connection with other computers or p2p sharing programs? If yes, please give details of set up.
12. Is this a your 1st try at LW or is this a new problem with an experienced user.
13. Do you see a brick wall in front of the blue world icon at the bottom of LW's interface?
1. Windows XP
2. none. have a router though (if that counts)
3. 1 GB
4. over 100 MB
5. broadband'
6. modem: linksys BEFCMU10 Etherfast Modem router: WAS FIRST: D-link DI-614+ WAS: Belkin Wireless G router NOW: Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router WPN824
7. House
8. Limewire 4.12.6 PRO with java version 1.6.0 (was 1.5.0_11 when i first posted, and had just before posting upgraded java from 1.5.0_06)
9. Adelphia High-speed Online (soon to be Roadrunner)
10. it says "your test worked"
11. yes, programs: Phex and Morpheus (rarely use those, but there's always that one song...) Computers: mine and 2 other computers at most (usually mine and a laptop or desktop).
12. first time the problem was this fast
13. no, but after 5 minutes or so, yes

Try the advice here
http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showpo...37&postcount=2

I can't find any info about a D-Link DI 6144 (614+ yes...is that 6144 a typo?). If the router supports UPnP, enable it within the router & choose the UPnP option within LW's tools > options > advanced > firewall config. Apply > ok to save.

If that's no help, have a look through your router's manual for info about how to set up port forwarding.
Here's a link to instructions for the DI-614...log into your router & see if the pages look the same as in these instructions. You might be able to use them for your router.
http://www.portforward.com/english/r...+/Limewire.htm

Note that you have to set up a static IP
LW's listening port & the port forwarded must be the same number.

sorry, was a typo, so i made a static IP address and set it to Manual Port Foward (should i have set it to UPnP?)

I'll report back on whether or not this worked!

EDIT: didn't work...

If you've set up port forwarding, you'll need to tick the 'manual port forward' box in LW & make sure that the port number in the box there is the same number as LW's listening port & the port forwarded.

Did the brick wall icon disappear & stay off after you set up port forwarding?

no, and now LW doesn't even recognize that I have internet at all...

I was also having trouble connecting to the internet myself, so i had to right-click the little wireless system tray icon and hit "repair"

ouchies... what now?

EDIT:
I went back and ticked the use UPnP one, and now i see no firewall, and LW recognizes my connection. I'll leave it on this so i can at least download stuff until further instructions (did that sound rebel-ish? sorry if it did)

No that's fine...remember I told you to try the UPnP earlier

Is LW still shutting down, now that you've got the UPnP option selected?

It's shutting down XP? Are you getting the blue screen?
Your earlier posts said that LW was shutting down...not that XP was shutting down

Try Java 1.6. Remove all your other Java versions before installing the new one.
