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 have the same problem using Gnucleus, but it only seems to happen when I try to download from BearShare clients. A "Connecting to Host" status appears for the download, followed about 10 seconds later by the "Unable to connect" message.

For all of the other clients, I am getting a "Waiting to retry" status when I can't connect. I just verified this using various downloads from 10 BearShare clients and 10 non-Bearshare clients. The non-Bearshare clients included LimeWire, Gnotella and "unknown." It doesn't seem to matter if the client is behind a firewall or not.

Has anybody else seen this particular behavior?

Did you happen to be behind a firewall? Or a NAT?
If so, check the failed connection ( right-click / Extended Info ). If it shows something like "Firewall, Stable" you have your answer. Gnucleus is unable to establish a connection if both ends are behind a firewall ( check the FAQ at the Gnucleus site )

I experienced the same.
besides that, it seems that the timeout setting that Gnucleus is using to determine if a client is available is way to short, besides that it's not configurable manualy.
This resides to me on file with 22 hosts all to be timed out. Basicly, this happened to all my test downloads. None came true and 98% of the hosts found where eighter timedout or remotely canceled.
This thing needs some tweaks.

Another thing that I'm missing is simply a preselect list for media types. I like the filter part though.

Another annoying thing: When is a file put in the failed state? If so, why isn't it automaticly researching and retrying. Now you've got to manualy activate it again. That's a pain.

router.limewire is gone, and newer clients are changing to the .6 connection spec so it is harder to find older clients to connect to. make sure bearshare's host cache is in your list, it still works good. .6 is suposto be compatable with older clients but I think bearshare and limewire decided it would be in their own best interest to cut us all off.

0.6 has been supported in gnucleus for a long time. Gnucleus also has a pretty sizable host cache and IRC fall back cache to make sure you get hosts. I'm investigating right now why some users have a harder time connecting to the network.

You can try upgrading to the newest version available at:

It was updated today so the cache should be very functional.

If it still isn't connecting try adding some peers from one of these web caches:

Skulls! Multi-Network WebCache 0.2.8
Skulls! Multi-Network WebCache 0.2.8
GWebCacheII Data
Bazooka GWC (0.3.6 Beta)
Bazooka GWC (0.3.6 Beta)

Make sure to forward the port you got Gnucleus listening on if you are behind a router. It will work vastly better that way.
