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 Newbie seeks help configuring TCP port 63XX for Shareaza

This is my first visit and first post. This search seems to be where I belong for now. I'm not computer illiterate, but neither am I a MajorGeek -- just a minor one who can figure out how and where and who to ask the right questions of to solve my tech problems. I am extremely new to the world of music downloading on P2P. I've been without a CPU for three to four years until last month even though I love the technology to pieces. For associated financial -- but even more importantly, for philosophical reasons -- I have made a personal commitment to opensource software. First, I asked a techie I had just met, what free music download programs were out there now as my kids' use of LimeWire those many years earlier led to multiple infections and, hence, to my distrust of LW even though I see many posters here have great love and respect for it. Anyway, the techie suggessted BearShare which was great for my purposes until I figured out it was only a free trial of a subscription service so I tried LW. Dinosaur downloads in comparison to BearShare.

LW download itself did not infect, but one or more downloads did. I went to looking on my own and finally found Shareaza which is not only opensource, but an intellegent interface that I am very comfortable with. I found out, in my attempts to find online help/explanations that that is where Shareaza is weakest. Anyway, found out that my firewall apparently isn't configured to that 63XX TCP port correctly as it failed the online test I found. The UDP port passed. I'm only a calculated risk taker about some things and my firewall is one of them. I recognize the problem, but I'm nervous to try anything without some personal guidance here.

My download problem is that it seems like I keep timing out on most downloads, even ones with 20+ sources, and have to repeatedly go back and individually select files to "resume download". I figure that configuring the port differently somehow will solve the problem, but nerves start to jangle when I consider the possibility of screwing up my firewall!

Now just the facts:

1. XP Pro SP3 admin user
2. Hardware firewall inside 2Wire 1701HG Gateway
3. 1 GB RAM
4. Total HD 73 GB; currently approx 60% free.
5. ATT DSL ISP
6. 2Wire 1701HG.
7. Older house now 3 apartments.
8. Shareaza 2.4.0.0; JRE 6
9. AT&T USA
!0. Passed the test
11. No other computers here. Only using Shareaza for P2P.
12. Learning this piece of technology.
13. N/A????
14. Don't know. Don't know where/how to check.
15. Actively updated McAffee.
16. USA
17. Just about the only thing on this computer is the software installed prior to my investgations with the P2P stuff. Auto update features were in place before most recent download of Shareaza. This same problem occurred with LW testing, though not quite as slow as Shareaza and I had already re-removed LW before discovering the potential cause.

I await your response with baited breath!!!!

Have you added ShareAza to you firewall? Both TCP & UDP, which might need to be done separately depending on which firewall you are using. You should only use ONE firewall, not two!

Thank you.

I guess I do have 2 firewalls -- the hardware one in the router and the software one in XP Pro. Somewhere else I found instructions on what to do with the the Windows firewall and it has improved things, though I won't really be able to tell until a more active time of day. I also accidentally found the scheduler in Shareaza and have set it for every 3-4 hours to see what that does. SO_O_O-o-o Since I can't get rid of the firewall in the router, should I completely turn off the windows firewall?

no don't do that. Neither should be disabled. Simply make an exception for Shareaza in your XP firewall. Go to Start menu -> Control Panel -> Windows Firewall, open. Click on Exceptions, press Add program & add Shareaza. You can also use the Ports button to add TCP and UDP port ranges.
As for your router, depends what model you have. You might need to port forward the device to open TCP & UDP port ranges for Shareaza to connect & listen to.

My router is 2Wire 1701HG. How do I port forward and what port should it be forwarded to? I did as suggested with XP firewall. Thank you.

Perhaps port 6346.
1. Very first thing you need to do & this is most important step is set up a static ip address: Static ip Address instructions for Windows XP

2. Port Forwarding Shareaza on the 2wire 1701HG. You might need to do a separate port forward rule for each of TCP & UDP, not sure.

The link you sent me to to set up static ipaddress says I shouldn't have to pay for it. My ISP (ATT&T) says otherwise. Next?

Also, I got into my router a bit through a web connection for it, but all the info scares me a bit. I REALLY don't want to lose my protection.

You did get something wrong: you don't need an excternal static IP (for which you would have to pay your ISP) but an internal static IP. Use the guide I have written that can be downloaded over here (magnet link; you need Shareaza running to download):
Shareaza install guide

Also, do a connection test (via Help>>Connection test...) in order to check your connectivity.
