Push Route Failed
Hello everybody.

When I trying to download in phex from another peers some times I get this message PushRouteFailed. What that means ?

Push route failed means that the other one is firewalled and tried to route the data through another node. This other node then went away, so you can’t access the rest of the data.

To get the file anyway, you need to find another source – ideally one which isn’t firewalled.

Hello arne_bab. Thanks for your reply.

I realized that when you're trying to download from another peers in SWDownloadWorker some times we get PushRouteFailed because the ipAddress from downloadCandidate is a local private address as,,, etc.

My computer is on 192.168.1.X segment and there are not anothers computers running gnutella on my LAN.

It seems like a bug to me and I can help to fix it, if you can provide some advice.

Best Regards.

Sadly they fail, because they don’t provide you with any way to reach them.

Are your ports forwarded or are you firewalled? → does phex show a brick will with a flame in front of it in the lower left corner of the window?

Yes a Mac will use any WiFi signal (generally speaking, i.e. it'll need a wireless card).

Your ISP probably doesn't support Macs, likely due to lack of expertise or availability of software to diagnose your connection. Macs will still work just fine over your wireless router thoug.

You need to check, if your computer is reachable in your LAN (i.e. not firewalled). Do you see a little burning wall of bricks in the lower left corner of your Phex window?

If yes: Google your router type and “port forward”. Then look in the network tab of phex. The number after the : of your own address is your port. Forward that and it should work better.
