Limewire firewall?

  dartanian33 20:48 12 Mar 2007

Been running Limewire for about 6months no probs. Now unable to connect, as i can see an icon telling me that i am behind a firewall. Im running windows 98, so no firewall installed, also AVG 7.5. Any ideas?

Do you use a router ? This may be firewalled if using the router.

Open the routers configuration page and look for the Firewall settings (if it has a hardware firewall)
