Okay. I have everything set, using 3.53 version with the 2.2 patch thingy and have set my tcp/udp ports using primary connection and i'm getting no search results what so ever. Please help me.
I'm online, P=4, S=0, SPM=17071.

Post by: Bearded Blunder on March 16, 2006, 09:44:30 pm
S=0 tells me your ports are eithere blocked somewhere (check firewall or NAV) or not forwarded from your modem/router (check the documentation for it or www.portforward.com)

I have in the winmx box, it says "patch operational" then it says currently blocking flooders to protect the network.  Tell me what this means, please!!!
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 16, 2006, 11:33:40 pm
hi mman19,

Have a look here, your making sure that your WinMx is in the permit all catagory of the worm protection.
http://www.winmxworld.com/tutorials/norton_2005.html

Also be sure its the ports are set in any XP Firewalls, and that your dsl modem or router has ports forwarded too.

Patch Operational = The patch is working
Currently Blocking Flooders to Protect The Network = Means the patch your using automatically blocks the IPs of the flooders to help protect you and the network.

Me here, i do have ports forwarding, i did the worm thingy and my windows firewall is turned off. I'd appreciate all your assistance so i can luse the primary connection. I do have DSL.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 17, 2006, 12:02:32 am
Oh yea. When i'm connected on secondary, i keep losing connection after just a couple of minutes.

Post by: Me Here on March 17, 2006, 12:30:18 am
Something is still blocking your ports on primary tho mman,

This is evident from the S=0 .. this only happens when either a router, dsl modem, firewall, or norton is blocking the TCP port.  Therefor it may be that you need to go back through everything from the begining and see whats missing or set wrong.

The first and most common suspect is the router/dsl modem.  Make sure the ports are the exact same as you have set in the WinMx Settings under Incoming TCP and IN/OUT UDP.

Next is to make sure that you have got the correct Internal IP address, modems and  routers can reset this number and change it in boot up.  You can get your Internal IP by going to Start > Run >  type cmd into the line, then click OK.
Then in the black DOS box type ipconfig. Look for your Default IP Address.

Now access your router or modem and make sure that this number is the same as the number listed in your rules for WinMx.

Next make sure that in the rules in the router/modem that you DO NOT have the protocol set to BOTH.  Set two rules, one for TCP port and one for UDP port.  Set individual numbers for each.  Not ranges.  They should look like this:
6699-6699  instead of 6600-7000.

Now make sure you go and look at your XP firewall.  As mentioned before its capable of re enabling itself at times.

Make sure that your WinMx is both in the allowed programs for the firewall and the worm protection of your Norton.

If your using ZoneAlarm as a firewall, this has been associated with a few folks failing to make a proper primary work.  You may consider installing a different firewall and uninstall ZA once this is done.  Again thats only if you had it to begin with.

Its often very difficult for us to trouble shoot problems because we cant actually see your set up, so the best we can do is ask you to verify these things are set correctly so that we can help you.

If you do all of these checks and all is ok, but are still unable to get a primary you may want to try bypassing any routers you have.  Obviously this is not possible if your equipment is a modem.


Let us know..

I have port forwarding set with tcp:6699 under winmx1 and udp:6257 each end under minmx2. I checked and my ip under cofig is what i put in port forwarding. XP firewall is off and i accepted winmx under worm protection. I guess my router is my firewall. Yes, i do have a modem. I can search/w results under secondary but keep losing connection  but nothing with primary.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 17, 2006, 03:20:27 am
This may just be a misunderstanding but you mention a 'router' and a 'modem'  do you have both?

If so the modem will need to be set to allow the IP to passthrough so that the router is handling the forwarding, if the modem is NAT capable also.

This is getting puzzling ...

We may have to change to WinMx Version 3.54 beta four, this will help some of the disconnections but not all unfortunatly there are so many flooded files on the network at this time causing users to drop.  Until we get all primary users on some sort of protection.

You can use either version of MX and the 2.2 patch as long as you are on Win2K or XP.

I would suggest if you dont have a router and modem then we should try this:
Reinstall WinMx using the patch located here:
http://www.winmxgroup.com/Install-2.2.exe

This will install the WinMx version 3.54 beta 4 and the patch needed for it also.

Version 3.53 has a known bug that caused more disconnects and they fixed it in version 3.54 so it may help you if we cant get a primary for you.

I just downloaded that olepro32.dll file into my winmx folder and now i can't connect at all. I dwnloaded km's. Help me.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 18, 2006, 12:38:43 am
I just installed 3.54 beta. Do i leave the ws2_32.dll file in my winmx folder?
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 18, 2006, 01:54:04 am
Yes you leave the ws2_32.dll in the folder but remove the olepro32.dll
Olepro32.dll will cause your newer version of Mx to crash.

Then restart
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 18, 2006, 02:19:45 am

Also, my downloads say waiting for network reply and it goes red.  I'm not gettting downloads.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 18, 2006, 02:48:14 am
You delete the Olepro32.dll from your WinMx folder.

The patch wont effect your downloads however you may have to go to Settings > Incoming TCP and reset that to 'Listen on port...' then do the same with IN/OUT UDP ..'Send and receive on port...'

Then restart WinMx ...

Post by: mman19 on March 18, 2006, 03:44:43 am
I have the 2.2 patch or whatever it's called and pie-patch 2.9. Do i use both or which do i keep or delete. Thanx. I also have blocktards pglite.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 18, 2006, 03:57:42 am
Question: For port forwarding, why does my ip address always changing when i go into ipconfig? How can i use port forwarding if it keeps changing?
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 18, 2006, 09:17:05 am
I would suggest you use the 2.2 patch, then you wont need to run the pglite for Winmx, because the patch already has the blocking in it.

As for your IP in the router you can set a static IP for it fairly simply:
http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 18, 2006, 04:03:09 pm
Hi me here. I know your VERY busy but i think now i need some serious tech help. I'm connecting on secondary but some i'll get qued and then the waiting for reply before it turns red. Then others is just waiting for reply and then red. I did the whole port thing, changed from automatic to static ip, went into winmx and it seemed like it froze. I totally know this is asking alot but would you help me from scratch, tell me what i should delete,what to keep,where to put it and what to download. I just don't know why i can't get my router to go through primary. Please do ask me questions about my laptop so you know what's on my system. Since i have the required winmx stuff on my system, we'll start by deleting i guess. Please help me. I really want this to work and also on primary if possible. Also, my online time keeps cutting off constantly.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 19, 2006, 03:40:04 am
Ok Mman,

Starting from scrath would also include reinstalling WinMx for your operating system from here:

www.winmxgroup.com/
Make your installation for XP, Winmx v. 3.54 beta 4.

Once you have this downloaded I want you to go ahead with the installation, when it gets to the TCP connection test, and the UDP connection test I want you to stop the test and click the Configure Manually button. 
On the first box 'Outgoing TCP Connections' Leave it as is and say 'Ok'.
The next box is 'Incoming TCP Connections' set this to port 6699 and tick that top option.
The next box is 'IN/OUT UDP Connections' set this to port 6257 and tick that top option.

Now allow the WinMx to finish installing according to your liking.

Now make sure that your XP firewall has WinMx allowed for port 6699 TCP and 6257 UDP.  If you dont usually use the XP firewall just go ahead and verify that its off at this time.

Also look at Norton Again and make sure its got WinMx listed to permit all in the Worm Protection again.

That is the best I can advice without knowing the name and model of your router.  If you would like to get me that I can write you a bit about it to make sure you have that set correctly.  As I mentioned before thats usually the culprit in these matters for some reason or another.

From what you have posted so far it sounds like you are on a Cable Internet connection with a Cable modem, but you have mentioned dsl. 

The reason this is important is lets just say you actually have a dsl internet connection via phone line, many of the modems for these have NAT capabilities.. meaning they can act as a router.  If you also have a router hooked up separately.. then the two conflict.  So one has to be set up differently to allow the other to work.. so again i ask you about explaining this to me better.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 19, 2006, 03:58:40 pm
good morning from the east coast. Let me first give you my info. I do have win xp, sp2 and i do have a cablemodem (cox high speed internet). I'm on wireless with my laptop. I do have a linksys router, model: WRK54G.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 19, 2006, 04:45:41 pm
So far i have done what you've asked. I'm waiting for further notice. It looks like the 2.2 file already has the patch, right?
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 20, 2006, 11:30:39 pm
Hope to hear from you, me here? Hope things are well.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 20, 2006, 11:42:44 pm
Sorry Mman,

Yes I am alive.. even I get a few  hours off someday..  :P
Ok Cox Cable is filtering and throttling p2p .. so that is not great news and could be part of your problems too.. It may mean that we are going to change the port numbers we used earlier.. For now I just want you to continue your work with the ports we used.

I need you to make sure your on the computer or laptop which ever you are trying to forward the ports for and do this:
Go to Start > Run > type in cmd.. then click OK
Now in the box type ipconfig .. then click Enter.
There will be several numbers you shall see, write down the Default IP Address.

Go here and make sure that you have set up two rules correctly according to these instructions:
http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Linksys/WRK54G/default.htm

Set two rules for your router for the computer you are planning to use for WinMx
One for UDP and one for TCP protocol.

Once this is done you should be able to maintain a Primary on WinMx.

Post by: mman19 on March 21, 2006, 01:59:45 am
me here, so you want me to use the default gateway for all the lines that have an ip address in my router? Do i keep obtain automatically checked and how about the dns stuff. So far, i have udp and tcp boxes enabled with my default gateway and under setup, my ip is default gateway also. Then i opened winmx and my s=0.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 21, 2006, 02:45:14 am
No the Gateway address is the address to access the router.  It wont work for forwarding the rules.
Although you will notice they are similar numbers the ones you want to use in that space for your rule is your 'Default IP Address'

Not your Default Gateway Address.

change them and let me know..
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 21, 2006, 01:31:47 pm
me here, ok, this is what i've done. In my router under setup, I have obtain an ip automatically, local ip is the same as the one in ip config, have subnet mask from ip config, local dhcp in router disabled. My port ranges are set with the default winmx numbers and the ip address in my router is my default gateway address from ip config and i have them enabled. Get back with me. Thanx.

Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 21, 2006, 02:48:42 pm
Thats great!!  S=1 should raise tho to a number more like 10 or more even..
With this you should be good to go for searches and room lists.. and should have a more stable connection.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 21, 2006, 03:07:32 pm
me here! Now S=8. You're the best man. Thanx for your help. You just gained another primary user menber. Now, are their other programs you think i should download. I have the 2.2 patch thingy which runs the 3.54 beta. I guess that's all i have. Do you recommend any others or will this be all i need for security reasons. Get back with me.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 21, 2006, 03:14:28 pm
The 2.2 Patch already blocks the RIAA IPs that you need to keep them off of the network, its more for protecting the network then your self as much, but its good for all.

So the answer is no, at this time I would say your doing all you need, go out there and enjoy MX..

Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: mman19 on March 21, 2006, 04:06:01 pm
me here! people are trying to download from me and aren't sharing. What do i need to catch thesr individuals and stop them.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on March 22, 2006, 02:12:21 am
Best settings for Faster Downloads:

1. Auto Enter Que:
AEQ, stands for Auto Enter Que, its a good idea to have the AEQ, set to 100.
To set the AEQ level in WinMx go to Settings > Internet Connection > Search.
Click on Auto Enter Que and choose 100.

2. Auto Find Sources:
AFS, stands for Auto Find Sources, its best to have the AFS, set to 10.
To set the AFS level in WinMx go to Settings > Internet Connection > Search.
Click on Auto Find Sources and choose 10.

3. Time Out Settings:
Go to Settings > File Transfers > Make sure the times there are set to 60, 600, 300 on the rest, especially the bottom four time options should be set to 300.

4. Bandwidth:
For information on what your specific bandwidth settings should be, visit our interactive bandwidth test page below.
http://www.winmxworld.com/scripts/bandwidth/

5. Allocated Bandwidth:
Allocated bandwidth is a primary user setting that allows you to increase and lower the amount of bandwidth WinMx will use for WPN traffic.
You can find this setting by going to Settings > WinMX Peer Network > on the right you will see Allocated Bandwidth.
Best settings for this on Cable/DSL is 9 KB/s Out and 13.5 KB/s In.
Now under that setting is Thread Duty Cycle, set this to 40%.

Now as for the leeches (folks not sharing) the best thing to do is to run a upload manager such as MxMonitor or Leechammer.

You will find instrcutions to both here:
http://www.winmxworld.com/tutorials/mxmoni.html   - MxMoni
http://www.winmxworld.com/tutorials/leechammer.html   - Leechammer

You only need to choose one of these then follow the directions for installation and use.  This will monitor your Que and make sure they have files shared before it allows them to get your files.

Dang! lol, sorry about that. I've actually tried both and it's a no-go.

Also, do you know if there's a way to somehow lock my ip address beacause their are times i lose connection/have to restart and my ip is always changing. Is there a way to make connection physically in the cpu so it matches my router setting?
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Bearded Blunder on April 21, 2006, 06:29:05 pm
Is it your internal IP that keeps changing? or your external (public) one?  Things can be set to keep the internal one static (just specify fixed ones on your PCs & turn dhcp server of router off) your public one is controlled by your isp & other than keeping connected 24/7 there's little you can do to keep it constant, as you'll get a new one each time you connect.

Ok sounds like you need to configure a static ip on your laptop, rather than having your router assign it, it's worth a visit to www.portforward.com because they have instructions how it's done with screenshots, easier than trying to explain here.

I was looking to do a static ip. When i go to run and type in ipconfig, the dos box starts to open up but it keeps shutting down. I'm not able to get the info i need.
Would you tell me why this is happening and/or how to fix this. Thanks.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Bearded Blunder on May 26, 2006, 09:51:51 pm
need to open the dos box first, either by tying cmd in the run box, or by using the menu to start it (it lives in accessories on the menu) otherwise if you type the command in run, the dos box closes as soon as the command has executed, ie before you can read it) which is what i think is happening here. once the dos window is open you can type /ipconfig in that without it vanishing

Post by: Bearded Blunder on June 09, 2006, 06:54:35 pm
yes you can install the new patch over the old one, it detects all previous versions the low value for SPM is unrelated to the patch & probably has more to do with local CPU load, if you're not running any CPU intensive software, oor doing anything unusual then i'd advise scanning for viruses adware spyware & all other nasties, these often install processes that hike CPU usage

Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Bearded Blunder on June 09, 2006, 10:03:01 pm
how fast is your computer? more programs is likely to make the situation worse, there are a few tweaks you can try, make sure in settings on the WinMX Peer Network sheet Allocated Bandwidth is set to the 7KB/out 10.5KB/s in setting & search thread duty cycle to 40% & on the Miscellaneous sheet WinMX Main Thread priority is at Normal(recommended)  it may be worth trying that one at "above normal" as an experiment (no higher) but you may find other things respond slowly if you do.  Also looking at the processes tab in taskmanager (right click taskbar it's on the context menu) then clicking heading on CPU column header to sort entries will identify anything posing major CPU load.

If the settings tweaks don't help & nothing is found using masses of CPU that shouldn't be in task manager, your best bet may be to change to a secondary connection.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: KM on June 10, 2006, 03:39:49 am
btw, reducing the number of searches winmx handles (search thread duty cycle) will actually make it deal with less searches... so it not a good way to resolve an issue of it not handling many searches :-)

if your MX is not able to handle many searches then you may find it better to simply use secondary unless there is some need to use primary

Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: KM on July 25, 2006, 03:50:20 pm
using -user doesn't help at all, the only way to filter the fakes from searches is to use 3.0 (or above) of the winmxgroup patch (http://www.winmxgroup.com/) - in which case you don't need to do anything special just search and it will do the filtering automatically

using -user doesn't help at all, the only way to filter the fakes from searches is to use 3.0 (or above) of the winmxgroup patch (http://www.winmxgroup.com/) - in which case you don't need to do anything special just search and it will do the filtering automatically

Cool, i have 3.54 version.

that's the winmx version not the patch version, if you see a splash screen when winmx starts up and it says Patch Operational in the top left then you have 3.0 (or 3.1), otherwise you don't so will get fakes

although i think the biggest clue is when you see thousands of results and have problems downloading them

Yesterday i was making a change in our router to use winmx primary and somehow it locked up. I couldn't access it. SO my laptop and my wifes were couldn't use. She was not happy with me.  She set it back to the default and doen't want me to mess with it anymore so now i have to use winmx secondary. Would you list the settings to use in  the wizard for me? Thanks. I have high speed internet (cox - now sudden link) cable.

you might want to have a look at this thread (http://www.winmxworld.com/forum2/index.php/topic,2932.0.html) then, technicaly it's still beta but hey worth a try... if your router supports it then it will try to forward the ports for you, no need to go and set it up yourself so your wife doesn't have an excuse to... yeh, that

of course it may not work (doesn't work with every router, just most) but hey if it does great if not nothing lost (plus the fast list might be useful if you're forced to use secondary)

if it doesn't work then just go in to settings and set both inbount TCP connections and in/out UDP to "unable to..." and then run in secondary (it won't let you use primary once you've set that)

I have 3.54 beta 4 but don't see an advanced filter in settings.

there is no PATCH version 3.54, you have WinMX 3.54, try patch version 3.1 on winmx

http://www.winmxgroup.com/Install-3.1-3.54b4.exe  to get it, that should filter the fakes and may well forward the ports in your router as well

Hi Mman,
Those are fake files your seeing.. this tells me you dont have the latest patch installed yet with your WinMX.

Please do this, Download this file and save it to your Computer.
Shut down WinMX and double click this file, allow it to install on your PC.
It will restart WinMX for you and those annoying fakes should be gone from your searches

http://www.winmxgroup.com/Install-3.1-3.54b4.exe  << CLICK HERE to download the correct file.

When this is done if you still have any problems please post back here

Hi me here. I have done the above and i get the same results. Example: I'm typing Rob Rock for artist and i get all results with either the words rob and or rock in them. Is there a way around this?
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on July 31, 2006, 03:14:47 pm
Try adding the title to the tracks or files you want for example

The Artist - The Track   
or a word from the track in there too like

The Artist
~word from track

~ = include words in searches
- = exclude words from searches

I'm getting "waiting for incoming connection" when i try to download. What does this mean. The person had 5/6 que.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Me Here on August 01, 2006, 10:57:04 am
Waiting for Incoming connection is normal for any download or upload.. its just a status, telling you that hey were trying to make a connection.
What happens next is the important bit.. if its always turning red then there may be a problem.

Make sure your WinMX says Patch Operational at the top under were you see WinMX v.3.54 beta 4 - UL @ stuff KB/s <Online forever> 

If you dont see that message in the bar under your WinMX versions information then let me know.  I still am unsure if your on the correct patch to remove fakes from searches.

Thanks

Yes, it does say "patch operational". Lots of times it says waiting for incoming connection from people and times out.

Under advanced settings, which boxes should i have checked. Also i had to go back to secondary connection as  reason stated in a previous post.

Post by: mman19 on August 03, 2006, 07:38:28 pm
I'm not getting any search results in secondary. Maybe two the most all week. Primary is out (check a previous post). What should all my settings be.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...

Well, i'm then guessing that no one has the artist i'm searching. I'm surprised though. I use to get alot of results in the past.

I saw the message on my winmx screen, that beta 6 is available. I just closed everything and installed, chose (3.54) of which i have been using and the main screen still says beta 4.
Title: Re: Hi, new member...
Post by: Bearded Blunder on August 30, 2006, 08:47:57 pm
beta 6 refers to the patch version, not the winmx version, the patch version will show on the splash screen when winmx starts for this version.
