Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

When I got my V+ box I got a new SACM (NTL:250) as is the norm, but since then Shareaza (P2P) has not worked, get message " behind firewall or NAT router". I googled and looked through the forums and was just wondering if VM are just not letting Shareaza stuff through no matter what I do to try and fix it, which I still haven't figured out

Are you using a router. if your not have you checked your firewall. VM do not block p2p ports.

Re: Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

If you are using a router you need to forward your ports.

Otherwise you need to give permissions for your client to whatever firewall you are using. Can only think that changing to a new modem has got your firewall confused and it thinks Shareaza is a new application or something.

Re: Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

Certainly a port issue...

But more importantly... don't use Shareaza! Even LimeWire is just as crap. When using the Gnutella network a clean, crakced BearShare has always been the best.

Thoroughly agree with you mate, Been using it for 6 years now, always the paid for version until they bought out ver 6.0.
A cracked version of Bearshare Pro 5.2.6.0 is what the O.P needs.

Re: Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

Not using a router just the NTL:250, am using Zonealarm free version and got Access and Server set to allow for Shareaza, have changed port settings in Shareaza a few times and still no joy. Someone in work mentioned static IP address and VM don't give them out for free so I may be stuck. I've got lots of files and partial files waiting to be "legally" downloaded so don't want to start all over again with a new client if possible

Re: Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

I would try and disable ZoneAlarm and see what happens, firstly.

If nothing happens I really can't see it being Virgin. Other than a clean of your system with CCleaner and SpySeeper I can only recommend using another Gnutella client.

Which is actually impossible anyway, with most P2P programs you can configure it to use any ports you want. Even if you stick to 1025 and up still got over 63000 to play with....

Re: Shareaza and NTL:250 and VM

You don't need a static IP to use P2P software. I'd strongly suspect a firewall somewhere, or you are using a specifically blocked port. Weird things can happen with software like Zone-alarm, and even the windows firewall getting activated unknowingly when your internet connection gets changed.

Regular BearShare 5.1.0b25 is quite tasty, and is recommended by some of some of their former forum mods. Bearshare was/is the best Gnutella client ever imo. It's fast, has a great User Interface, and allows you to turn uploads off completely (which is good if you're a leecher like me).

Why, pray tell, would anyone want to do that?

As you won't be distributing copyrighted works?

But...

Downloading them is just as 'wrong'.

Theft is theft.

I was going to recommend the test and bearstart utility but thought he or she might be slightly novice and not bothered in what type of client he or she uses.

As for leeching... I like the way you can turn off 'partial sharing' and then when you have the file just 'unshare' it.

I share and I don't share. Its about when and how my upload is already being used. i.e other P2P networks! or indeed broadcasting. Shoutcast ect.

As for legality... thats entirley about popular, commercial content. If its not in the 'top 10' and if its not alreayd making the companies billions already (Which it is!) then they don't want to know.
