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 Thank you

Thanks mate,I appreciate the trouble you've taken.

I set up a static IP and port forward over a year ago,and rechecked the settings only yesterday.

I now think the problem may have been a compatibility issue between my router and Comodo Firewall.--I uninstalled Comodo,and installed Zone Alarm,according to the instructions. Shareaza is now working perfectly.----I've connected,disconnected,turned of and on and rebooted the PC and the router,twice now..--I could get the connection to work with Comodo if I rebooted the router (?)

I will of course keep your reply for future reference.

Thanks again

Do you pass the connection test now with ZoneAlarm?
For the correct setup of ZA, check this:
SourceForge.net: FAQ.FirewallsRouters.ZoneAlarm - shareaza

PS.: I still think there has not been an incompatibility between Comodo and your router. This is highly improbable. The problem was probably only at one side, and it probably has been an issue on your Computer (if the router used to work).

Seems you were right.


I configured Zone Alarm and everything was just dandy. The it went again. I've fiddled with it;rebooted Shareaza, rebooted computer,cleaned cache, even did a disc check. It's worked intermitently. currently not working,after being fine earlier today.--Yes it has been passing the connection test,now it isn't.

Any ideas,explained simply will be gratefullyy accepted,. EG how do I check my router's security log?

Have you setup UPnP in your O/S?

Yes.

I should mention again that I've been using Shareaza trouble free for over 2 years until few weeks ago.

OldDeath said to check the router's security logs. Can you tell me how to do that?.

Default Router Logs

BOF

I presume you are the "Administrator" for your router, if that is true then all you have to do is access your equipment's admin functions, as usual, find the log page and within that find the "Security" log page.

Now, I've just basically described generically, rather specifically, where your security log should be, i.e. that's how I found my modem-router's security log page.

You know, I am inclined to agree with OldDeath's assessment of your problem, there is something switching off UPnP in your router and that is likely to be a security event. Now, assuming that your router is still working properly, the only application that can interact with it is it's own "control software".

Another thing, if your router connection is under attack, or believe it is, then your NAT firewall should have kicked in and blocked the attack, UPnP should not have auto-switched off (my modem-router's firewall activated when my connection came under a SYN attack).

Therefore, I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer's help desk to see if they can explain what event could possibly cause this "UPnP auto-switch off" problem.

Good Luck



UK Bob

The funny thing is that I've already heard from people having set up port forwarding on their router - and at the same time the router detected a security risk on the forwarded port (too much incoming UDP packets) and blocked traffic on this port automatically - even though it has been manually forwarded.
That was the thought behind my advice to check the security logs.
