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 Windoze 9x has weak sockets

Windoze 9x sockets are pretty weak -- opening too many too quickly causes problems..

I'd turn down my Gnutella client's settings to 2 or 3 connections (I've found specificly that many Gnutella nodes *reject* connection attempts so alot of sockets get opened while searching through the host cache - this is when I sometimes get out of memory errors)

Doing a NETSTAT -AN (in a DOS box) right then I see tons of opened sockets waiting to close...

They do clear in 3.min however you still want to avoid opening them whenever possible - other apps cause problems as well (original Gnutella, GetRight come to mind) when they open too many too fast.

I connect to only 1 or 2 other hosts and note the number of "friends" they have - searches work great.. If you don't find what you want wait a few min then disconnect from those 1 or 2 hosts and connect to another pair, try again (sorta like hopping servers on Napster)

Allow only 1 or 2 D/L's & U/L's, 1 or 2 connections

(Low bandwidth, low socket usage operation for dial-up)

Changing my registry settings and reinstalling DUN didn't work. It seemed to be working, but when I work up this morning my internet connection was dead again. I will now try using fewer connections as the last poster suggested...

Exclamation Shure does

You're correct it.
It started happening on my PC with version 1.4.X of Gnucleus.
VERY tiresome to say the least.

Usually this happens when I get a blue screen error message from Win98SE where the message says I perhaps can continue using my PC as usual after the error message. BUT I can't use it since my PC loses connection with internet even though I am still connected to my ISP. Restart seems to be the only salvation.

At last! I was running XoloX for close to 12 hours today with no problems, after reducing the upload speed to 3 KB/second (the upload speed controls the number of connections in XoloX). So basically yes, reducing the number of connections would seem to fix the problem. Of course I was not using Gnucleus, but really the same should apply for any Gnutella client.

Anyway after I have had XoloX running a few more times, I will know for sure whether this is the answer to my problem. I will post the results here.

I've been having the same 'Internet killed' prob's. Funny thing is, when I had Xolox installed on a year-old install of Win98se, Xolox ran with no problems. I just did a wipe and re-installed Win98se, and guess what? Xolox killed my internet (cable modem connection). Nothing short of a reboot would return net access. I had a wild thought and applied system optimizations (for win98 and for cable modems) and the problem is now gone. Get the file here
Maybe it'll work for you, too.

sanothai is flying high

If you are using ZoneAlarm firewall, the program conflict is the cause. You can either shut down the firewall while you are downloading or switch to a different firewall. Sygate personal firewall works allright and you can download it from CNET ( NOTE: if you are using ZoneAlarm and want to uninstall it, visit its website for detailed uninstallation instructions. Don't just use add/remove program. Otherwise, you could crash your computer.

Certainly ZoneAlarm could do this, but it is not the sole cause. I was still having problems after uninstalling ZoneAlarm. After I updated to the latest version of ZoneAlarm it didn't work anymore (unable to start True Vector), so I just ininstalled it.

For the moment I think the only 100% sure fix it to upgrate to 2000 or XP.

Possible solution for a 'dying' or 'freezing' Internet connection using DSL/Cable modem under Windows 98.

After I had this problem with a number of Gnutella clients, it took a couple of days to find a solution that worked for me.

Look in Windows/System for the file NETPPTP.SYS and check the version. If it is older or the same than 4.10.1998 you might want to replace it with a 4.90.3000 version (which can be obtained from the Windows ME edition).

Full report on this issue:

Kind regards,
