"waiting for results" sigh....

Postby Allied » Thu Sep 02, 2004 11:33 pm

Just installed WinMx v3.53.I've got the incoming tcp connections going through my firewall fine(according to the wizard)I'm connected to just the WinMx peer network with a primary connection. People are uploading a bunch of stuff from me.

Heres the problem. When I seach, it just says "waiting for results". I've been waiting a hour for some results for "Linkin Park". Nothing shows up in the results field. All the settings are in the default stage. Except for the incoming TCP connections, I changed those to a different port useing the manual configure during the installation.

I checked all the links in the winmx "how to", but they didn't mention this problem. I Googled it, lots of results for this problem. But nothing that helped me in the first 10.

So here I am.

go to MX Central or Vladd44.com
I think I saw the solution for it on both sites.

Try secondary connection to the network. The primary status is eating up your bandwidth... :idea:

Look on MX Central's optimal settings for WinMX. Try to apply the same on your MX.

if you're using a secondary connection, don't forget to disable tcp and udp connection so as to put winMX in 'passive' mode to see if you're about to connect better that way; if that'd doesn't workt he first time, try to refresh your connection as you could just be connecting to a bad primary.

Sh*t. I've hoped I've seen the last of you, ed2k fanboy, but I was unfortunate.

Its not winmx. My ISP is doing everything it can to block all p2p traffic. I've talked tothem about this and somehow they've limited my winmx connection.

They won't tell us how they did it :? Me and a bunch of other nerd are trying to get past it, but we're having no luck.

Try using different TCP and UDP ports. Also, a SOCKS5 proxy whouldn't hurt.

We've tried all that stuff.

Now we're sniffing around the network's DNS server. We know theres an IP range the college uses for ftp between other campus's.

I got an idea. Set the TCP and UDP ports to some unblockable* ports, like port 80, 25 or 110.
*It is blockable, but then they got no use for their internet connection, so it whould make no sence to block it.

There's a difference between local ports and remote ports. ISPs can block all connections to those ports on your computer and you'd NEVER know until you tried to run a webserver or mailserver.
