Limewire can connect from behind wireless router

  Boytjie 15:59 18 Dec 2005


I am on wireless network with one other pc. The broadband network connection is owned by the other person on the network. I used to be able to connect to limewire but now can't. I have been through limewire help, done all the Gnutella stuff etc but still cant connect. I am behind a firewall and have tried accessing with and without it. I have only been changing settings etc on my latop not on the owners. What do I need to do to be able to download from limewire? any ideas/info would be greatly apreciated.

click here for details regarding firewall settings.

There may be a hardware firewall in operation which is blocking your may have to speak to the network owner regarding that.

It's possible that the network owner's firewall is blocking the ports used by Limewire (6346 & 6347). Ask the network owner to allow all traffic on these ports through their firewall.

It also possible that they've blocked these ports on purpose to stop you hogging all thier bandwidth...
