Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Port 27016 and 7001 are used by Hostiles. Port 27016 by spammers, 7001 usually by upload slot containment but their shares suggests they are also spammers using temporary static shares (68 GB). Although I've never seen evidence of them (port 7001) as spammers per se. Those that use port 27016 and 7001 are BOTs all the same.

Can you send me their addresses if you still have a list of them?

No the LW 'built-in' Blocklist does not get auto-updated. That blocklist will not have been updated for 3 years or a little over 3 years. The LimeWire company produced the 'built-in' blocklist but the LW company no longer exists.

The blocklists I offer are based off the BearShare Full-Hostiles blocklist with continual updates. I also combined it with the blocklists from a couple of other gnutella programs and made sure the listings from the LW 'built-in' list were also included. So the so-called Security blocklists I supply are continually updated lists. Not only added spammers and hostiles that are designed to fill your upload slots, but also hostiles designed to DDoS your client, and also some criminal investigation groups. I update the LW list about once every two months (it's due for another update.) If more people were downloading it I would update it monthly. There's 4 choices. Two are 'light' lists which are a fraction of the size of the other two. This is in case your LW has memory problems. The other two are very large but a little smaller than the BearShare blocklist. You have a choice to block all Japanese hosts or not. The reason for this is not only to block Japanese hostile hosts but also for those who had contacted me in regards to keeping their search results and connections limited to their cultural interests.

Apologies. This is a bug that occasionally happens with the forum. Sometimes threads you might be subscribed to are updated with a new post but emails are not sent to those subscribed to the thread. The mail-server has a limit of emails it can send and this might be one of the problems. There's a lot of people who might be subscribed to this thread for example. I have no control over the mail-server, all I can do is nag the owner lol. Did you receive an email notifying you of this post reply?

Thanks, only one found though. You might want to check your gnutella.net connection file to see if any :27016 hosts exist. Remove them. You can open it with Wordpad and search that term. Oh, and also search :7001
FrostWire 4 is terrible for connecting to those spammer hosts. LimeWire 5 much less if at all but you still get spam from them.

LOTR, The space where LW allows you to add a host connection port (that frequently keeps popping back to 6346) What number or different numbers would be wise to enter in there for true music hosts? And European?
Thanks

These days probably the only client programs that keep that port as the default would be the older ones such as Cabos, Acqlite, BearShare, etc. Programs like GTK, LW, FW & Phex will tend to use UPnP where the port will vary each time the user opens their program, unless they port forwarded the program.

So in answer, I think you can even just keep it blank. And in some ways (at least in general) I'm not sure it even matters if you add a port the client is not using at the time.

I've manually added host addresses for programs like BearShare 5, Gnucleus, LuckyWire. And it did not seem to matter that the port was different or no port, a connection was still able to be made to the hosts manually added. Two of the best Phex hosts I'm aware of (obviously same household) use different static ports, yet when I've added the address, sometimes I've connected to one or the other regardless of the port I added.

I'm not sure what difference it makes when the hosts are port forwarded.

As far as seeking music hosts, I don't think the port number has any relevance.
