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.

The beta (4.9.2) just died on me. It shows one green and four red bars and this won't change. If I tell it to disconnect it goes to five red bars. If I tell it to connect again only the first bar turns green. Search doesn't work, etc. It's been this way for half an hour now. Other network stuff works fine -- web browser for instance (where dya think this came from?). No firewall, and I didn't change any settings (firewall-related or otherwise) in limewire. It had been downloading merrily, and just became like this sometime while I was working on other things.

Why would it just stop working like that?

Exclamation

This just happened to me using the latest beta 4.9.4 -- Limewire dropped all four connections and refused to regenerate them. Every other network-using application continued to function normally -- web browser, etc -- and there had been no change to firewall/proxy/etc. settings (home broadband, so it wasn't someone else monkeying with the settings and disabling non-HTTP traffic or something). There is no proxy. There is a software firewall but it is instructed to leave limewire's traffic alone, and it hasn't been touched since when 4.9.4 was working normally. This has happened several times with all of the beta 4.9 series -- restarting Limewire seems to be the only recourse once this happens. Since restarting Limewire without touching anything else (firewall, rebooting Windows, whatnot) fixes the problem, it seems to be internal to Limewire.

Stderr console during one such incident with 4.9.4 shows a bunch of lines like this:
Code:
15-Jul-2005 8:50:07 PM com.limegroup.gnutella.ConnectionWatchdog$DudChecker run
WARNING: Potential dud: CONNECTION: host=66.7.99.186 port=6346

WARNING: Killing connection: CONNECTION: host=201.129.102.35 port=6348
This is fairly serious since people having to constantly restart their clients is bad for the network, and likewise people being spuriously disconnected. Please have this fixed in 4.9.5.

What operating system are you using, and how are you starting LimeWire?

Were you using the computer at the time this happened, or did you away and just find limewire without any connections when you returned?

Also, did you try clicking Disconnect and then Connect?

Operating system: XP home.

Starting limewire:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\java.exe -Xmx255m -jar "C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.jar"

(It really does seem to work better given that much mem)

Disconnect and then tell it to reconnect: as the other people who reported similar occurrences said, that doesn't seem to work. The connections tab just shows it open a batch of connections that just sit there "connecting" and counting up; then most of them disappear and are replaced; and so on.

I can see a "dud connection checker" killing connections that aren't actually doing anything useful, but why would it then refuse to or be unable to establish replacement connections? Or are the dud connections and the failure to establish new ones both symptoms of an underlying problem? Yet where would that problem be -- the network stack? Any problem outside Limewire would have affected other applications. Web surfing and other activities worked normally. Only the enabling of a firewall that blocked non-surfing traffic, such as the sort often found in workplaces, could be a) external to limewire and b) so thoroughly cripple it while leaving other network apps alone, and nobody could have done that since I'm the one running the home network here.

which version of java are you using? If it is not the latest 1.5.0_04, would mind trying that one?

1.5.0_03 apparently. How does it get updated to 1.5.0_04? The downloads at sun's site don't distinguish any further than "1.5.0", so do I have to wait for 1.5.1 or something?

Why is there a second, non-obvious Java download site at sun.com that's needed to stay up to date???

Anyway I'll try it...
