Can't get any P2P app to connect - Help!


Recommended Posts

Ok, I've known nsaneproductions is the dopest site around for a while, so I thought I'd ask for help from some experts. I'm no idiot, but for some reason, I can't get any P2P app to work on my laptop. I have no problems whatsoever running bittorrent clients, (I've tried 3 so far, all worked fine) which adds to my confusion. So far, EtomiPro, FilePipe, Limewire, KLR, K++, Shareaza, and Usenext (maybe others I've forgotten, too) have all been unable to connect. Let me start by telling you about my system and network:

System -

Model: Clevo D900K

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 2.6 GHz dual-core

Chipset: VIA K8T890+VT8237A

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX 256MB DDR3

Memory: 2 x 1 GB PC3200 DDR 400 MHz

HD : 2 x Seagate 100 GB SATA 7,200 RPM

OS : Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

Network -

WaveRider Wireless DSL modem

Linksys Wireless Router WRT54GSV4

Windows Firewall

I have a WPA encrypted wireless network setup for my home. It uses DHCP configuration to get my IP from the ISP. I tried changing it to static and forwarding ports, but that basically screwed everything up and I had no wireless connection at all. I tried turning off Windows Firewall and that didn't help any app connect, either. I had exceptions entered for all the programs I tested, when I had the firewall on, anyway, so it's no surprise I still couldn't get it to connect with the firewall disabled. I think it must be a routing problem, but I just don't have enough experience with routers to figure out what is causing the failures. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Thanks to NSane for this great site. I'm so glad it's back up and running. Keep up the great work.

Hey, sorry it took so long. Yes, my router has DMZ, and I tried enabling it for this computer's ip, but that didn't seem to make a difference. My firewall is the Windows Firewall included in my XP x64 OS. Here's a copy of the HijackThis scan I ran today:

Actually, I think your problem is that the ports that your P2P apps are using are being blocked by the router itself. You have to make exclusions for them in the routers configuration. Go to PortForward and click on the application name and it will guide you on what to do.

This site really helped me out when I just got my new DSL line and I had the same problem.

I think it doesn't matter, it's not illegal or something. However it is defined as a threat by some AV's...
