Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

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. Donīt 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.

Angry I see a lot of people going back to 2.2.7

The numbers don't lie.

2.2.7 is on the rise again because PEOPLE ARE HAVING TROUBLE STAYING CONNECTED WITH 2.3.0

But of course, you cannot confirm this...

You think I am lying?

Let me repeat I have no connection problems and cannot confirm this...

On our german bearshare site there are a few people with problems but not more than the version 2.2.7 was released...

let me reapeat I cannot confirm this!

You have problems... but many people donīt have any... you read posts about connection problems, sure because the people without problems donīt post...

I donīt know what is going on... I am only a moderator on two bearshare sites and read all forums daily...
And Becker is a moderator on bearshare.net he cannot confirm this too... but we are only moderators...

So let me repeat for a last time:

There are people having problems with 2.3.0. but not more than with 2.2.7, so you canīt talk about a general problem here... I cannot confirm this!

But of course, you cannot confirm this...
Go to Setup > Service
Then add some of these host.
public.bearshare.net
connect1.bearshare.net
connect2.bearshare.net
connect3.bearshare.net
connect1.gnutellanet.come:6346
connect2.gnutellanet.come:6346
connect3.gnutellanet.come:6346
Also keep your Max host number on the Host tab around 5.

IF YOU ALLREADY DID THIS :

Here is the information to understand about connecting to the gnutella network with bearshare:

When you launch the program it tries to connect to hosts. Go to the
hosts tab to observe this.
Make sure that Automatic is checked.
Which hosts will it try to connect to automatically? The ones that you
have put into the Automatic Connections in Setup -> Services. This
should at least have public.bearshare.net. So go to Setup -> Services
and check.

Ok, so let's assume that you have public.bearshare.net in automatic
connections, and you see that it is trying to connect to this host.
Still not connecting?

Let's check your internet connectivity using another web site.
Go to a DOS prompt. Type "ping www.cisco.com" and see what happens.
If it say "timed out" then the ping is failing, which means internet
connectivity problems or a firewall is blocking your access to the
internet.
If it say "unknown host" then you have problems with DNS (or internet
connectivity). Check your dns settings.

If the ping is successful, then try to ping public.bearshare.net. The
same logic will apply.

If the ping is successful, but you still can't connect then find out if
a firewall is blocking TCP port 6346. A firewall could be running on
your PC itself, or on a corporate network which is providing you access
to the internet. The firewall must permit TCP port 6346.

Hi Becker!

He doesnīt have connection problems, he got his connection...

And dropping hosts are normal for the Gnet...

So I donīt no why he is talking about connection problems?

I can help the people with connection problems but if he is out of luck and his horizon is as he said about 117... what can we do, there are several possible reasons - for example local problems with the provider!

Bearshare has a problem with LANs... but we cannot talk here about a general connetion problem, this problem didnīt change since 2.2.7!

All people in Germany, without a LAN, get a connetion...
ok some have to ask but after we helped them there is no problem left...

So if he donīt get a "stable" connection, it might be local problems that should be checked...

But as I said this are no general problems with the version 2.3.0!

Morgwen

P.S.:

Thanks for helping!

Exclamation like talking to a hole in the wall

I'll try to explain it so that even you two can understand it:

1) I get host with 2.3.0, they just dont stick around.

2) 2.2.7 works fine, 2.3.0 doesn't
