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 Strange things happening

Hi there!

It's a little bit embarrassing for me to admit this but I actually can't get Phex to connect to anything. And the most embarrassing part of this is... I've been using it since 2005!
Something like this never happened. I thought it might be time for an update, so I installed 3.0.0.99 (while the old one was still on my computer) and wanted to run it as always but after a couple of seconds every remote host has this flashing up behind him: Error. Connection refused: connect
I tried to change the listening port but this wouldn't work.
I have a router and tried to open a port for the Gnutella network but this doesn't work either.
Now, as far as I remember everything went rather smooth when I first installed Phex almost two years ago. I didn't change anything then and there and even the router wouldn't complain.
So now I would appreciate it very much if anyone could help me out here.
Thanks in advance...

Oh, yeah, almost forgot:
My operating system: Windows XP
Version: 3.0.0.99
Connection: DSL
Message: Error. Connection refused: connect
Others: I have a router but this was no problem in the past

Do you have a software firewall? Windows Firewall?

I have the exact same problem on the same configuration (same OS+phex versions). I use Kerio Personal Firewall configured to allow all traffic for java, but disabling the firewall or even closing the application completely does not solve the issue. I am behind a router, and other applications have internet access.

Which Port does Phex use?
(You can find it in the network tab with the IP address (after the colon))

Could you check,
- if maybe Kerio Firewall lets through only Java 1.4 or
- sees Phex as single Program

Best wishes,
Arne

Even stranger things do happen...

First off, thanks for your answers.
Somehow my problem just vanished - I didn't do anything, just stared at my monitor and just like that Phex connected.
Really, I have no idea what the problem was or how it went away. I'm abashed...

But thanks anyway!

We have seen this behaviour a few times now.

It seems something doesn't yet work as it should...
@Gregor: Could we add a request to the Phex GWC as soon as it takes more than 30s to connect after startup for the next version? Maybe that can solve it. Do we already have all 3 GWebCaches in 3.0?

We need to improve the ways to connect without GWC and further reduce GWC requests instead of adding them again....

That would mean improving the host-catcher, right?

Currently Phex is using port 10104, but I have tried several different ports, however, this does not seem to solve the problem. Kerio recognises Phex as "javaw.exe", does not recognise Phex as a program. All traffic is enabled for javaw through the firewall, and again, totally disabling the firewall does not solve the problem. Thx in advance.

Could you try shutting down Phex and starting it again?
Maybe try this up to three times (with at least 5 minutes in between) to see if teh problem persists?
