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 fatal java.lang.Error

I was running LimeWire 4.4 with Java 1.3 with no problems. I upgraded to Java 1.5 and installed LimeWire 4.6 but during the initial setup, after the "firewall preparation" step, it had a fatal internal error.

The "Review" message started with:

java.lang.Error: IP Helper Library GetIfTable function failed
at java.net.NetworkInterface.getAll(Native Method)
etc.

I tried reverting to my earlier installation and got the same problem.
I also tried several other combinations of Java and LimeWire versions, and went through the steps in "Fixing LimeWire", but it hasn't helped.
Any ideas?

P.S. I'm running Windows 2000, have an ADSL connection, no firewall.

Can anyone help with this problem before it drives me crazy or worse, back to Kazaa? The firewall preparation test is crashing my LimeWire setup every time, with the error msg below.

I was able to avoid it for a while by going back to LW 4.26 on Java 1.3, (apparently the last LW without that step) but now that combination started returning a "Launcher Error" stating that "LimeWire was unable to load the Java Runtime Environment" and telling me to download the latest JRE. (It said this even with JRE 1.5 installed!)

I think it¡¦s related to my Internet connection settings but I can¡¦t figure out just why. (I connect to ADSL using the EnterNet 300 PPPoE app and a network card.) I've tried all combinations of LW and JRE as well as a number of tweaks with no success. Thanks for any help anyone can give me¡K

Try a Registry cleaner. If you don't have one, get one HERE (click on link.) Then try re-installing Java. When installing LW, instead of installing over the net, save it to your computer. Then install it.

By the way do you have anti-virus & spyware & adware utilities. De-activate them during installation & initial start up of LW. See how that goes.

I followed your advice, then tried reinstalling Java and LW again (several versions)...No luck!

I always get the error described above after clicking 'Next' at the Firewall Preparation window. (I don't have a firewall.)

Do you know exactly what LW does at this point? How does it contact the network?

I assume the problem lies with my Internet/network settings...
The ADSL connection software my ISP uses (EnterNet 300 P.P.P.o.E. )seems to be a bit buggy and needed some tweaking to work properly...

Same problem as this one: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...threadid=34340

Delete your LW preferences folder as described here: Fixes for Limewire Try the 'Other' installer. You just unzip it & use it.

It might be an idea to download the installer to your computer, disconnect from the net temporarily, disable your firewall temporarily, then install LW. Then if it installs ok, re-enable everything.

Thanks again..My problem is not exactly the same as those threads and the error comes at a different point...
LimeWire is installed, but the settings aren't finalized...
At the last step, the 'firewall preparation' window, when LW says it needs to "receive information from the network", hitting Next gets me an error box and the error message above. LW doesn't totally crash (at first)-- I can go Back and change options, but it won't go past that step. The alternate installer leads to the same results. However, this time I WAS able to re-install an old copy - LW4.26, which doesn't have that firewall step. So it seems that's where the problem is...but I don't know why. As I said I don't even have a firewall, just AV software, and turning it off doesn't seem to help.

I don't know if this is useful but here are my IP settings:

still haven't really solved this problem...

Does anyone know exactly what LW does when you hit "Next" at the firewall preparation window? I always get this error msg:

"java.lang.Error: IP Helper Library GetIfTable function failed"

The log for my ADSL software gets a message that seems to be related (though it doesn't affect the connection):

"GetIPForward Table failed with 902 - using snmp table."

Anyone have a clue about this?
