Ares Problems

Postby kellyfelly » Sun Jun 18, 2006 12:52 pm

I have been using ares for a few months now and i think it is easily the best p2p program around. the problem is one day i started my computer and ran ares, when it started all the items in the transfer window were saying 'connecting' or 'searching' but they never connect so i tried to cancel them but nothing happens when i click cancel, it still says 'connecting' or 'searching'. I tried uninstalling the full program (ares), rebooting my computer and then re-installed it but all the items are still there saying 'connecting' or 'searching'. Can someone please help me as its driving me nuts because i have resorted to using limewire and it causing problems on my computer due to viruses and bugs. Thanks in advance, KellyFelly

If you search a very popular title does ares work and download? If it does, maybe the files that have stalled have no sources left on the network..... :?:

Also, just check your upload rate is not set too low, as this will also stall Ares.

Have a look in the network settings IN ARES, use the contol panel tab IN ARES not windows. Tell us what you uploads and download setting are......

I remember setting Ares up for a friend that these must be set fairly or you will get the result you have!!

2 firewalls = NO FIREWALL at all! They just echo off eachother.

These guys might be more help.....home of the official Ares forum


You need to sort out your firewall, get help with it if you don't understand well. Firewalls are kinda important if you use windows....good luck....:wink:


Blueyonder pc guard is a AV and a firewall as I understand it, so maybe thats the way to go and loose the windows firewall (that dont like p2p much anyways)....

i have no idea how good blueyonder pc guard is - but it's a safe bet that it's far better than the windows firewall, and as ld50 says, two firewalls at once is bad. disable the windows firewall.

Hii Kelly, try Ares 1.9.1 because it is hard to connect with AresLite, i tooked me about 1h to connect :roll: But the newest Ares 1.9.1 connects in 10 sek :wink: I use ZoneAlarm Firewall.

Kelly, i get this problem sometimes when using ares, i duno why it does this but i just leave it and then try again if i need to.

Just have the one firewall runnign and make sure the program is allowed incoming and outgoing connections by your firewall, thats all i can think.
Information is so valuable in todays society, its understandable people want to lock it up, but the internet is about freedom of information, lets not take that away.

Chances are that he's probably sorted out the problem sometime in the thirteen months since that post. :roll:

There's good news and bad news. The good news is that in the 13 months since his post, kellyfelly has graduated from college, moved out of his parents' house, gotten married, and had a son.
The bad news is that he's been trying to connect to Ares for 13 months nonstop without any luck yet. :cry:

have you disabled any windows services? or are you just running a standard unfettered version of xp? when I have upnp disabled ares has this problem for me.
