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 adding hosts

Napshare is not connecting to any hosts, and I am hoping someone can help me
narrow down the problem.

I am on a small LAN with a router/NAT/firewall providing my internet connection.
I have configured my router to allow connections through port 6346. I have
tried using the default Napshare configuration, but that shows my IP as, so as the Readme suggested I tried forcing my IP to the address of
my router, but still no connections are made by Napshare.

I can browse the internet and am experiencing no other network problems. I can ping the hosts which I see Napshare trying to connect to with no difficulty.

Any help really appreciated!

Thanks all,

Have you read the ReadMe file section on "Push"? Gives some good info.

In Napster>Config, do you have a reflected IP shown? You can ping others, but can you ping your machine from outside the LAN? Of course other Napster clients don't need to know your IP to work, and if you're behind a firewall running IP masq (hope you are) Napster should work with a reflected external IP like 65.XX.XX.XXX. but you should be able to ping your local 192.XXX.X.X IP. If not, maybe check your router's NAT config.

I use Napster from behind Bastille firewall running both IP masq and NAT with no problem from this machine, which doubles as a router/firewall for a small LAN. I don't even have to force the IP, so it'll work, ya just might have to play around some to find what's not setup quite right.

Default hmmmmmm...

hey there! thanks for the info. however, when i went to look at the client again to check it against the info you gave me...well, it just sort of started working. it found a whole slew of hosts while i was reading the readme about Push.

weeeeeeeird...but i won't complain.

thanks again!


edit: just in case this is useful for anyone, the config that worked for me (eventually...heh) was to force the local IP to my router's WAN interface and to allow the router to forward port 6346 to the wkstn. i personally don't think that last part is necessary, since in the read me it says that Napshare uses randon ports to connect, 6346 is only neede for other people to connect to you.

Glad Napshare started working...who knows why...

I don't know why you had to force IP, should work anyway like mine does unless you've got some restrictive settings in your router. But you probably will have to leave port 6346 available to allow uploads. I did have to do that in Bastille>config or no uploads.

nothing can connect to a 192.168.x.x from outside, think about it, no outside routers will pass on a packet to a 192.168 destination, and it looks like your box has gotten a ip assigned from dhcp from your setup cable modem/nat, this is good for your protection and push will have to be used I may be wrong, so you wont get as many files as if you had your own ip though
there should be no problem getting hosts to connect to, even with a 192.168 ip, once you get a few good ones to start with so I think that was your problem at first
if the nat box passes packets on to your ip and same port, that would seem to work right and forcing the ip would then work, monitor with tcpdump and post back this is interesting to see if it works this way
