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. 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.

I back this completely. The reason is very simple: I'm being sued in Germany AT THIS VERY MOMENT.

I think I'll be able to win the case, but I don't like the possibility that my provider might monitor my traffic and see, which files I share, and which get uploaded from me.

At the moment the only files I share are those mp3s I recorded myself, but I want LimeWire to allow me to down- and upload so far anonymously, that noone can simply get my details without legal action (I don't care, if the police is able to track me back, when they put in their full force, because they should still be able to track people sharing child-porn etc., but they shouldn't be able to do it without quite some effort).

I want to have it so, that noone can prove he/she downloaded a specific file from me, without some major research by the police. It must simply be hard enough, that it can't be done routinely.

Well, what is that supposed to hide? Anybody who is able to open a command line can get similar infos from the OS without LimeWire being able to hide it. Just type netstat -a on OS X or netstat /a on Windows and you see any IP number that is connected to your computer.

Make it impossible to be sure, that the host which serves the file really shares it. If that host could also be a proxy, which doesn't even know what it souted through it, youl can't be ure, if the browsed IP really is the source.

Default "complete" and a "completed" distinction in the upload

Im not sure if this is a good idea, considering legal issues with to much FYI's. But I would like to know when a file is complete - i.e. complete this second, versus completed- downloaded hash file. This would help know when I can close limewire. Sometimes I feel bad cause I dont know if the upload is gonna restart in the next few minutes or not.

Your spyware may have made LimeWire work because it modified the TCP/IP protocol stack to include what is called (on Windows) a "Winsock LSP", i.e. a plugin for Windows sockets that normally performs address resolution, or supports ancillary functions through helper processes.

I do think that you have not completely removed the spyware, and that the spyware's installed LSP is still there, even if it is no longer working as expected as the main part of the spyware components are no longer there.

I suggest you use "SpyBot Search & destroy", and get into its "advanced mode", where you'll find the "Tools" button on the sidebar: then click on "Winsock LSPs". You'll see a list of LSPs installed in the Windows networking stack. You need to keep the following ones:

(1) Transport Protocols:

(1a) MSAFD NetBios (\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{...}): several instances are present, this is normal as there are several networking interfaces for the internal local host, in addition to remote accesses, DSL modems, Ethernet cards, Wifi adapters, ...

(1b) MSAFD NetBios (\Device\NetBT_Tcpip6_{...}): same thing, except that this is related to the support of the newest internet protocol "IPv6" instead of the legacy IPv4 protocol with 32-bit IP addresses.

(Both are supported in %systemroot%\system32\mswsock.dll; these two support the IP protocol for Internet, and optionally the NetBios protocol over IP, a.k.a. "SMB", used for Windows shared files and services; don't remove them as you would delete at the same time the support for TCP/IP transport, needed for Internet; instead configure your firewall to block the RPC/DCOM port and the Microsoft files/printers/services sharing server ports).

(2) NS Providers (namespaces, i.e. resolution of names to addresses):

(2a) TCP/IP (%systemroot%\system32\mswsock.dll): this contains the DNS client that resolves hostnames like "www.limewire.com" to an IP address. Don't remove it.

(2b) NTDS (%systemroot%\system32\mswsock.dll): this contains the WINS client that resolves Windows hostnames and services for NetBIOS/SMB or with a NT Directory Service: in a LAN, or optionally over the Internet over a secured virtual channel. Don't remove it, as it is needed to access to internal resources of your local host from local applications; instead, you need to configure the Firewall or IP settings to exclude the support of NetBios over Internet connections.

(2c) NLA namespace (Network Location Awareness) (in %systemroot%\system32\mswsock.dll): this supports namespaces needed for wireless or mobile networks, and allows locating a server managing you private domains. Also needed as the base support for PNRP (the secured Peer-2-Peer protocol from Microsoft). It is installed if you have enabled this P2P protocol, but possibly with other components, or with some Wifi connections (I think it is needed for the support of WEP and WPA authentication on WiFi accesses or routers).

(2d) the namespace provider for PNRP cloud (in %systemroot%\system32\pnrpnsp.dll): needed for Microsoft P2P protocol, it allows locating hosts and services in the P2P cloud with their GUID; it contains a search agent and a topology builder; in Microsoft P2P, searches occur only between authenticated servents, through secured channels, that create one or several "clouds" located anywhere on a private LAN, or on Internet, without a central server. Authentication works through hosts certificates; hosts, files or services are identified by GUIDs, and this PNRP protocol allows performing a distributed replication of a virtual file server or service, and locating hosts on this virtual network via their GUID. This MSPNRP protocol is still in beta form (Microsoft has learned a lot from experiments in Gnutella and other P2P protocols, notably when tuning its "topology builder" and optimizing searches with broadcasts in a instable network with lots of dynamic routes; I absolutely don't know the performance of this P2P protocol, but Microsoft does not intend to build it for free file sharing between unidentified servents: it requires using authentic certificates registered in a central PKI authority, with a verifiable identity, so the build topology will always be identifiable by a responsable network owner; apparently not suitable for personnal P2P applications due to privacy issues). The support for PNRP in uninstallable (check the Microsoft documentation about NETSH)

You may also find some other LSP's installed by some antivirus; but beware of LSP's installed by some free "popup remover" bars, as they sometime include their own spyware!

Note that the Windows XP Service Pack 2 contains tools to remove unsafe LSPs and restore the default configuration if it gets damaged.

Also XP SP2 contains a builtin local firewall that is known to cause problems to some Gnutella users: it requires a manual configuration to let incoming connections and datagrams from the Internet to your local Gnutella ports 6346 (TCP required for the base Gnutella protocol, UDP needed for the new Out-Of-Band search protocol).

The Filter Results hlp a lot in sorting out the returned search results, but I'd prefer the search function to have AND and OR control, so that far fewer unwanted results are returned. At the moment, the seacr function treats all separate words as having an OR relation; in almost every case that I use separate words, they should be AND.

Default Folder searching/downloading

It would be nice to be able to search for folders, if you are for example searching for a full album and a one click to download the whole folder.

I'd like to enter myself my conection speed. I mean, I have a cable connection, but the upload/download speeds that LW has for Cable are not the same as mine. Therefore, I can't configure my optimal upload speed as well.

Another thing: I'd like to see exactly who are sharing the files that are displayed on the search field. Let's say I see two files, and I want to donwload both of them. If they are both from an user that has a slow connection, I'd rather download just one at a time, because if I click both of them, they would go very slowly and maybe I won't finish any of them.

Thanks

Ivan
