Probably firewall, check its ticked in exceptions. Limewire is free.

I wouldn't touch ANY such program with a barge pole. Heaven knows what viruses, adware, malware etc you may get downloaded onto your computer. There have been MANY horror stories on this and other forums.

It's not quite that bad, Andsome. Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of p2p, so long as all your anticrapware is up to date and you're careful about what you download and scan any file you download before you double-click on it, you should be fine.

Each to there own,i have used P2P software before with no ill effects,apart from the legal/moral standpoint witch to me is up to the individual involved it is quite safe,just use common sense,i would also check the firewall settings seems to be the most likly culprit.

You normally need to allow specific ports for p2p - now that Morpheus 6 is legal, there should be a proper helpfile on the site detailing which ports you need to allow - TCP and UDP.
