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.

Normally, all ports, excepting the HTTP Port 8080, are closed by a corporate firewall. Sometimes the Socks Port 1080 is open.

If your Socks Port is open (simply try it), you can use the free program SocksCap32 by <a "">NEC in USA</a>.

If not, then you need the free program <a "">HTTP-Tunnel</a> additionally. HTTP-Tunnel uses the Socks Port 1080 to communicate with the applications. Currently their servers move to another ISP. Therefore their site and/or servers may be down...

Gnotella does not support Socks. Therefore you will need SocksCap32, too. Give it a try!

Thumbs down

I can´t believe a program for sharing files in internet wich do not support proxys?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!

We are in 2001, 21 century. I'm using proxy servers from 3 years ago. Please, update it.

I changed gnutella for toadnode. It supports proxy servers and Socks.

Hacking is a art, whenever you get stuck you figure other ways around the problem. Try it, it's fun!

You can download a list of hosts from clip2 via the web and then use it in your client.

Netscape opens other ports to receive data, so firewalls sometimes have to allow for that, so pick a port like 4070 and see how that goes, or set your client's port to 80 or 8080 and see how that goes (for connecting to known hosts) some known hosts are on 5634 and will also accept web connections via a browser
as a example
sysops can still mess with you, one I know throttles connections down when he sees too much traffic and figures the guy is using napster or something. he can't be there 24/7 though!
As for this forum not allowing html tags, just put your links in proper form and they will be clickable, OK? (or read a little before you get all upset, RTFM)
Once you have a few hosts, your client should be able to collect more as time goes on, just leave your client on all the time, make sure you are sharing some files cause some clients check for that before allowing you to download.

Unhappy corporate firewalls

Always remember when trying to bypass a corporate firewall that doing so may get you fired if this is a place of employment for you. I know first hand because its my job to maintain bandwidth and I hate seeing people get in trouble, check your companies policies

I'd hardly call bypassing a firewall from the inside hacking...

Anyway, I've been having the same problems as you guys, but the funny thing is, I had no problems 7 months ago. I used an IP tunneling program to bypass my universitys firewall. Unfortunatly the uni announced user space checks, so I had to delete all my filesharing and tunneling programs.
Now I've gone and forgotten how I did it. I know I used xolox, and that I used HTTPport 3NSF (well 3NSF is the newest version i think) Hope that helps you. I think all i need to know is my uni's IP, my local IP (the computer im sitting at) and the xolox ip. God know how I got them before. There seems to be less information about the subject online than ever, or maybe there's just more crap to sift through...

Damn my memory

Default Forget Gnotella

Gnotella doesn't work anymore because you have to manually update the gnutella hosts files which has totally changed, especially with dyanamic IP addresses. I switched to gnucleus then I found shareaza... You'll love Shareaza if you're like me. It has all of the features of gnotella and more. And it's the next generation gnutella client with G2 protocols. (healther for the network, global searching and more!)
Get it at
or search it on gnutella for shareaza1800.exe

You'll thank me for this.

Oh by the way it works on any windows platform... Not yet on Linux or Mac yet.
