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 Yikes! Push seems broken again...

Sorry to report this, and maybe it's just me, but in the beta version of and now push downloads seem completely broken.

In these versions I've yet to see a push reply of any kind from any server in the extended info (even a busy reply), and no firewalled host has ever worked. Yet if I load up the older version I see the very same servers respond to the push (at least until the push route dies).

There was a bug with re-searching Swabby fixed in, but sadly, perhaps the fix is worse than the disease.

Default push works for me

I'm using V. 1.3.5 and I had a MP3 pushed to me this morning from a firewalled intranet IP (10.x.x.x)

Remember that you cannot connect to the host at all directly and your push request has to make it's way to it through it's peers (whoever it's connected to)

This means the success of push depends not only on you & the host but also whoever else they are connected to..

This makes push not very reliable but the option of last resort. If your request didn't make it there you wouldn't get any status (server busy) either plus other factors like max outgoing connections - D/L's exceeded ( normally it will at least allow beyond the limit for such replies or give you a shot of hosts then disconnect but with push you may not get *any* response at all... ) Really you can only make the request and only hope :

1.) it circulates back to the host through it's peer(s)
2.) it isn't busy - may not respond at all then
3.) is itself configured properly (usually firewall settings)

My experience is no reply at all until actually ready & willing to push the file to you - your end just sits there "in the dark" re-trying the request until that time - likely by the time you tried the older version that host had a slot free for you...

The file I got - it totally ignored me for *4 hours* then suddenly the file came... I was host hopping the whole time hoping to find a common peer, the file came right after a search turned up that host again.

That means I finally hit one of it's peers who could relay the request for me AND it was no longer busy *at that time*, while it was busy there was no reply at all...

Some of the servants ports fall outside the "temp port range" (1024 to 5000) and my firewall was blocking a few push attempts until I noticed that ( my firewall is configured to be "transparent" to Gnutella net yet block DNS/evolving/IRC so pushes coming in above 5000 were being blocked.. )

I've seen Gnutella servants with ports as low as 1 and as high as the mid 40,000's (normally source ports should/would be restricted to above 1024 to 5000 or to upper limits of most hosts - usually 9000 or so)

I allow only 1024 to 5000 source and 6340 to 6360 on my end generally - I'll make an exception for the occasional important file or allow up to 9000 or so too..

Default Fixed

Push bug has been found and fixed, thanks for the heads up. This will be part of the very close release of 1.4.1.

Here's another one for you to fix for the 1.4.1 release:
The Shared Files window does not update the hit list on
my files. I have to close the window and open the window
again to be able to see the update.
And of course: the Retry download after XX seconds
does not work either.

When searching for files I often get 2 or more hosts. The problem is that often one host is listed as two or more.

Default Shared Files Problem

The shared files problem will remain until the shared files code is re-written. There was a problem with the share thread notifying the share window and it effected stability. For that reason it was disabled, and will be re-enabled at a later date.

Evolved to today and the push is working great again. In fact everything seems to be working really well in this version.

Thanks, Swabby, for the great work!
