Hi Everyone,me again. I am running Limewire Pro 4.10.0 in Windows XP Home,that works fine. I also wanted to use any of the other P2P`s e.g. Kazaa,E-Donkey and the such. I have downloaded them one at a time and they all install fine,my problem !! none of them will connect. I run Zone alarm Pro-Firewall & Antivirus it asks me if I want the specific prog:to connect to the internet and I select yes but none of them will connect no matter how long I leave it running. I even tried shutting Zonealarm off,still no joy. Any suggestions will be welcome. nobbyc
Do you connect to the internet via a router (device that allows more than 1 PC to connect at once, usually wirelessly)? If so then you may need to check the firewall settings on that, possibly forwarding appropriate ports to your PC.
Have you granted access to Kazaa to go online or is it blocked [I believe some firewalls autoblock this due to the risk of virus/trojans/etc]? I don't have either program, but seem to remember that there is something like 'Programs' that you can click on to check ....
I thought that there is a set-up procedure with Kazaa which automatically ID'd your ports - but then I also thought that Kazaa only existed on the pre-pay site after they had been taken to court, so i would take that with a pinch of salt ;o)
Have you tried removing & adding again and following the set-up procedure? I seem to recall seeing the program connect automatically and, as long as the website is there and access has been granted via ZoneAlarm - and assuming that you don't have a second firewall installed - it should just go through as there is nothing to stop it.
Someone else may know more than I do about Kazaa & come to help [not hard!]
