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. 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.

Have you tried forcing your BS into ultrapeer mode? Check your options. This may or may not help. My BS was working fine an hour ago with downloads be they from many or a single host.

If you used BS happily for years, is there anything that's changed recently that might have affected it? Windows SP updates or other types of updates, etc. Or perhaps added some security software.

I am trying to give you more info. Will any of this help? My forth light says TCP firewalled UDP firewalled. I am trying to connect from work, I am using windows xp pro sp3, I have 782.8 available ram, disk space available 28.82, the router is Netopia 2247NWG, there is also another box that says Sonicwall TZ190. I am trying to use BS 5.1.0b25 & bearstart. I have windows firewall off but I allowed TCP & UDP for port 6348, I am in forced ultrapeer mode. I do not think there have been any updates to the system & up until last week I was using a different BS version I think it was 5.2.5.9 but when that stopped working I downloaded the BS 5.1.0b25. I tried port forwarding for Netopia 2247 because Netopia 2247NWG did not show up on the list but I could not gain access when I got to the point of enter network password. Thats all I got for now, I just want BS to work is there anything you can tell me from this info or do I need more. Thanks

Try these instructions: Port Forwarding BearShare on the Netopia 2247NWG-VGx

However, before you actually create a port forward rule, you need to set up a Static ip address first: Static ip for Windows XP

For your router, by default the username is admin and the password is 1234

Another password you could try: admin1 or admin

yeah....take the following with a grain of salt...

perhaps you should be working, not filesharing...I guess it didn't occur to you that people in your company want you to work and have therefor implemented measures to prevent you from doing activities that they deem inappropriate on THEIR premises using THEIR internet connection..

I miswrote in my post it was the Netopia 2247NWG-VGx I tried. This is what happened I tried set up static ip followed all the steps the last thing said if you do not have a dot in obtain an ip address automatically your connection is already set up for static ip. No dot on mine. I then went back to port forwarding put in 6348 for BS incoming port, next said enter static ip address_ I did not make one because I had a dot so I put in my ip address but changed the last portion. The next thing tells me to enter router ip address in a browser I entered the ip address no window opened it just said failed to connect page load error. I used internet explorer & firefox both did not work. So how do I forward a port if I cant get past this point.

When the netopia ddidn't work for me I saw sonicwall on the router list, so I tried sonicwall TZ 170 (Not 190 I know) but when it gets to ip address I get the same thing failed to connect page load error. I cant procede to forward a port does this mean I cant have BS anymore?

Ok I got the grain of salt thing....but just so you know I work in a small private company & they know I use BS I have even gotten music for my boss. We use an outside place for our system & if I am blocked it is not because my company said to do it. So I guess my question is.....Is that the problem & if it is what do I have to tell these outside people to do so I can get back on BS? And as far as I know in the past couple of weeks they did not do anything to cause me blocked intentionally.
