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.

I've had that problem for the last two days - ditto with Shareaza, but not Limewire or Morpheus.. It's a pity though, since I hate adware..

Has there been a buggy evolution/new version?

I'm having the same problem (ie: it starts to connect but never actually does)

I downloaded Gnucleus via the links on the Gnutella site (the links lead to file-front I think)

Anyway, I uninstalled it and tried to download it from the link posted by icarus2de above...

However, this time I just got an error message when I tried to install it ("GnucDNA could not load" )

...Where's the best site/place to download a stable version from?

The problem you are having is too many people out there that are firewalled (including yourself adding to the problem).
You have to learn a little bit before you go jumping into file sharing.
You have to learn how to port forward through your firewall. It's not rocket science.
If everyone is firewalled (and most people are now because of cable modem routers) then no one will be able to connect to anyone else.
There are less and less people with high speed connections and open ports, you all need to spread the word before this gets worse.
That's why you can't connect, as soon as you open a port everyone will come to you instead and you will be able to get all the files because "push" will work for you now.

Default same problem

I am having the same problem. I don't understand Kfiler's explaination. Do we need to change gnucleus or our firewall to get it to work for everyone?

I have the same problem, I would like to know how you got over it. I don't think that the chap knew what he was talking about, as I set my firewall to allow connections from Gnucleus on all ports. In theory it should do just that, I should not have to forward any ports. Gnucleus uses random ports for connecting, so I don't know which ports to forward!

Sometimes it helps to watch what clients you are connected to.
Set your connections to more than 10, wait till you are connected to valid nodes like limewire or bearshare and then do your search.
After you get your results, set the number of connections back to normal.

The original poster also mentioned he was using the LAN only client, doesn't that mean you have to tell it who to connect to in a "buddy" list?

Try the normal client, the LAN version is for when a small group of people know who to connect to.

Post forwarding is a good keyword to put into google or to look for in your router's instruction manual, and normally 6436 is the port that gnutella clients use.

It's not just your firewall on your computer, if you have a router that needs to have port forwarding set up.
