A newbie question
« on: December 08, 2006, 05:19:20 am »
I am a newbie, as my questions will tell.   How come when I log on, files I've already d/l'd start downloading again?
The funnier one.... can't figure out how to upload yet..........     :lol:
Thanks for your patience and help!

First one: any uncompleted files will load up & continue downloadeing, winmx is designed to do this to save starting over when you have part of a file already, once afile actually completes, winmx changes it's name (takes _INCOMPLETE off tthe front & other info from the end) & no longer attempts finding it) if you are trying several different versions of the same file & one completes, right click the extras in the transfer window & choose delete, to remove them permanently (check the copy you have is a good one fist obviously).

No uploads is typically TCP port blocked or unforwarded in router, i suggest first a visit to the tutorials section & make sure your firewall is correctly set for winmx, also norton worm protection if you're a norton AV user.

If that fails to resolve the issue, then visit & look for your router on the routers page, NOTE: MANY modems incorporate routers, you may have one without knowing.. look for your modem if your router isn't separate, then pick winmx on the list of programs & you'll find good detailed instructions for port setup.
