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.

Default Blocking Hosts

In WireShare tools, Under advanced filtering, Adding of IP addresses you would like to add to block, fails to work. You put in the full address and click ADD ok. But I notice it never adds the address to the box below. When I hit the ADD button the address just vanishes. Then after checking the running program it never takes effect. Bad hosts still enter in.

I don't have access to WireShare presently. It sounds like either you are closing the settings window without clicking OK button or you are not pressing the enter button when you wish to add the host.

Or due to the most recent hosts added being at the bottom of the list you have not scrolled down to the bottom of the list of blacklisted hosts. I recall it was far easier to scroll to bottom of the blacklist with LW 4 whereas with WireShare it can take a while depending on how many are in the list.

Thanks for the reply LOTR. I reloaded the program again just in case but it looks like you can't put any address in at all that it will accept, even my own. What it is doing is erasing the numbers you enter in after you click ADD.
Below the box is blank (checked or unchecked) for blacklisted hosts, so you can't scroll through anything. I assume the addresses I enter should pop up in the box after adding them though, correct?

I've been away and won't be back for another week. After that I can check the Windows version of WireShare to check what might be happening.

There's a small box you enter the single IP address into. It only accepts a single standard numerical IP address, not any address that includes the (mind block - reverse dns lookup) alternative name for the address with alphabetical letters. After typing or pasting in the address you press add or press enter on your keyboard and the number should then be seen in the list below. From memory I use both enter and add but I can't check at moment.
If you try to add a number with illegal characters (such as alphabetical letters) then it will fail to add.
e.g.:
Legal: 7.100.73.10
or 7.100.73.10/32

Illegal: rus.7.100.cable.73.10
or 7.100.73.10-32

Edit: Come to think of it, I think WireShare might have some limits on how large a block range can be. Or perhaps I'm confusing with LW 4. But you are unlikely to want to block such a massive range anyway.

I have that right yes, standard numerical addresses only, loaded and added one at a time.

I think I will load the older version of the program and see what it does.

I've now had the same results for two different versions of WireShare on
two different PC's using Win7. I only need to block a small number of hostiles, 3 or 4 would help.

I've just returned to discover I have hardware problems so I won't be able to test things out for some time.

Here's something you can try:

Find the WireShare.props file in your WireShare settings folder. Find a line that says either HOSTILE_IPS=
or BLACKLISTED ... =

Add the ip addresses you wish to and have a semi-colon after each one except the last one. Make sure there are no spaces.
eg:
HOSTILE_IPS=238.108.1.3;239.4.8.23

Save the document without changing the file format and do not choose any saving approach that creates a Rich Text type of document. Retain the .props file extension. See if that works.

I see "Download Settings" and "Torrent Settings" only. Where are the props files located?

Click on the Start button > type %appdata% into the text field > ok. You should now see a lot of folders - find the one named WireShare ... that is your preferences/settings folder.

For a more direct approach I think you can simply type in %appdata%\wireshare

By default the file extensions are normally hidden. So find a file within that folder called wireshare (that would normally be named wireshare.props)

Were you able to find the section of Wireshare props to add the addresses and did this work?

It has crossed my mind that your problem is a system permissions issue. You could try right-clicking the Wireshare program or shortcut and get Properties. Set Wireshare to 'Run as Administrator'. Only do this after WireShare has stopped running. I don't know if this will fix the problem of adding hosts to the blacklist but something worth trying.
