WinMx Friendly Ports?
« Reply #21 on: February 17, 2006, 03:10:35 am »
HI Fagan

I am having the same troubles at times, the best version is the 3.54 for this, and having that patch from www.winmxgroup.com is best for protecting your self.

I am not surprised about the OpenNap, remember when MX went down we all could still use those because they are a direct connection to the server.  I suspect that the problem is like most folks the primaries are being bombarded with flooding both from RIAA connections and folks searching without using the -user filters, causing many disconnections, which will then cause you to disconnect also..

For this there is not alot we can do about it except to educate folks about how to protect themselves from the RIAA if they are on a pie/hosts file fix, and how to search and not get the fakes flooding the primary...

I am a Rogers customer and have tried several of the port combinations listed above.

My downloads are TERRIBLE (less than 3 kb/sec every time), and my uploads are about 1kb/sec.

I am *FURIOUS* and want to beat the shit out of whoever did this at Rogers.

Someone please help me. I am using winmx version 3.54.

honestly your best bet is to find a different provider, take your money elswhere, & tell rogers WHY you're changing provider, if enough vote with their wallet, Rogers may take notice...

I would not recommend keeping all the firewalls off. That can leave your computer very vulnerable to attacks. It is nice to have one. Can you forward ports on adaptors? I don;t think so but I am not sure. Can you please wait until someone else more knowledgeable comes along.... If you can, then you will need to forward to forward a UDP port.
Check the windows firewall, that does have a nasty habit of turning itself on form time to time....

Cheers :P

if you've just moved, the chances are high (guessing) your new internet connection is through a new modem, if so it may be worth looking for the modem at www.portforward.com as many if not most new modems have routers built in

Well.... I am using Linksys Wireless G adapter.... I hate to sound stupid, but what modem... I am now on wireless....I uninstalled, reinstalled, changed port numbers back and forth... now I can't even connect. I am going into withdrawal.

My son is upstairs using wireless also and he IS connected to WinMx, thanks to me introducing him to it...could I not have enough bandwidth?  Do I have to toss his PC out the window so mine will work?

I am not using a router, just an adapter.... I am reading everything I can find.... :shock:
and THANK YOU ALL for trying to help....I am sooo addicted to this.

Your wireless adapter is almost certainly acting as a router even though it isn't called one, your best bet may be to visit the help chatroom & talk to us there

One thing you need to do regardless is making sure you're not using the same ports for WinMx on both computers.

BB is right though, your wireless adapter most likely acts as a router and will need portforwarding.
Have a look at it to find the exact model number and try searching for that on portforward.com.
Even a similar number might help you already as the interfaces to change things rarely differ much from model to model.

If you can't figure it out come back and post the model number here or come into the room where someone can help you with that.

(You can still join the chatroom without winmx being connected btw, just ignore the yellow blinking light, go to the chat section and enter the room id into the fiolter bar and hit join)

no one at all is being able to upload from me. can i get someone to try to upload from me how? i just changed my ports and i called my dsl service to check my router and they said they do not block anything. my ports was set on 6699. i have now changed my ports to tcp - 58202 and udp - 61202 so maybe that might do something. i have all my firewalls turned off so that is not it.

Put the changed port numbers in Settings> TCP connections
Settings>UDP...
Make sure the numbers match
Also I will not recommend keeping the firewalls offf. Firewalls are a necessary thing when downloading things from the internet..

Check if ports are forwarded and if winmx is allowed in the firewall.... the internal IP sould be the same as when you forwarded the ports
I don't know if comsat is P2P friendly or not..... If not, then there's little that can be done... :(

With all respect to all the whizzguys and girls out there... since the patches came i have nothing but serious troubles with MX. Apart of 2 user on MX there is NO way I can dl anything with a speed better then 2ks. And yes, I have changed port, prim/sec, reinstalled windows WITHOUT firewall, NOTHING matters, apart of the two users I am not able to use MX. Been to the mx help channel in MX, same shit there... always the same questions and no answers. Those 2 users I have dl's from 20 k/s which is fine... but anyone else is either impossible or a speed less then 2 ks. I dont ask anymore any advice as I have been "instructed" over and over again. Have the latest patch running (the multi) but as usual... It can not be my ISP as then I would not be able to get anything from anyone. However... those two damn people... Ah well.. it doesnt matter... MX doesnt work for me since January. I guess it will never work for me. So I use it nowadays only for chat...

It can be your ISP. DO your speeds always remain at a constant value? I mean like you are throttling them?
If yes, then it will be your ISP.
They either block winmx or throttle it....

Hi psycliist,

Thanks for posting your thoughts here.  I am curious do you happen to know what ISP those two use?  Since the inception of the packet reading software most ISPs use now a days that do throttle or shape, port changes almost never work, and its difficult for us or anyone to say 100% that it is or isnt your ISP.  We have had a few folks that have found that transfers from other users on the same ISP have no trouble and just wondering what your thoughts on that idea are.

Seems like more and more people are having their ULs blocked or at least shaped by ISPs using packet shaping.  Comcast, Cox, and Charter for sure are packet shaping high volume users.  Not sure what their criteria is, but they seem to be different in different areas.   If you can't UL your going to end up on everyones Ignore list sooner or later.  Changing ports won't help.
Changing ISPs  may help, but probably only for awhile.

Some other P2P apps obfuscate the packets so the ISPs software doesn't recognize it.  I think we need something like that to keep WinMX alive and well.
