hi Sam, I would suggest that win7 is actually protecting you in not letting MxM start WinMx, as this could be seen as malware behaviour. It could depend on what folders the programs are installed to as some folders have more protection that others. Of course it might not be that at all, and you'll have to put up with the extra click. Does MxM work normally after both programs are started? if not then maybe the path to winmx set in MxM is incorrect.

As to the timing out, check the TCP port in a webpage port tester to see if it is open (Winmx needs to be running when u check this). If this test says port closed then thats where the issue is currently. Might be you need to specifically allow these ports through the win7 firewall. Try firewall off momentarily when doing the port test to test this.

hey Ghostship and everyone...what is normal and whats not when it comes to Primary connections?

since I started using Windows 7, I only get a handful of connections in Primary and non or just a few Secondry and about 200 in SPM so it would look like (Online P= 2 S= 1 SPM= 174) for example

is this normal? if not, what would be?

thanks all and cheers

let me say that again

I have already changed and forwarded these ports from the router, I used ports in the 30000s and 20000s for TCP and UDP recpectively

see what i mean by my head isn't clear  :D

You can change the ports from either within setup or also by adjusting them in the settings window where they also hide ("Incoming TCP Connection" and "In/out UDP Connection" ), remember though that you will need to ensure the ports are forwarded for the new ports instead of the old ones and to restart WinMX as otherwise it will not action the change.

What folder do you have MxMonitor watching for WinMX in, as its quite likely the path is not correct for windows 7, Check the default path matches the one windows sees exactly as I have been caught out by the same thing myself using a 64 bit machine.

GhostShip, thank you so much for the swift reply

changin the P2P port means that I need to rerun the setup, doesn't it?

in regards to WinMx Monitor, the link you provided is where I downloaded the software from and I followed the steps but still the Monitor does not load WinMx up

Hi Sam  :)

I just looked at who your ISP is and from what you have described I would suggest the problem is they are deliberately disrupting your uploads, there is little you can do about it if that is the case as Winmx currently still has its transfers in a non encrypted format and using deep packet inspection its trivial for an ISP to block either your uploads. downloads or both, you can try using non standard p2p ports such as 80, 80, 443, 25 etc as sometimes those ones are unimpeded.

With the issue of WinMX monitor can I ask you to walk through this guide and post again if there is no change

There can be other problems but those answers are my best guess atm  :)

thanks for all the help people...
I am running WinMx on windows 7 Ultimate (64bit) and I am having a couple of problems:
1. aborting connections, much more on the upload side than the download and also very tidy upload queue! most times I have a few, if any!
2. I tried installing WinMx Monitor and I was not able to get Monitor to start WinMX

please help me or point me to the direction where I can get help

my ports are mapped and I run a Primary connection and have hardly any problems downloading

the tcp and udp settings are in the winmx settings menu.

The port forwarding you may need to set up will be in the settings on your router.
I've always found the to be a massive help

how do you set the tcp, udp settings for winmx in windows 7? i ve looked util i m crazy and cant find  them. i can connect and people start to dl and time out.  amd fx8, with windows 7 , att univere and a dlink gamemaster router. everything worked fine until i switched from comcast to att, internet on comcast went to hell,  then the old computer, xp,  died.  so now im on att with a new computer system and a new provider, double the fun, snark. any help would be appreciated.  ive been on winmx since 2.65(?) and really miss it
