It seems for the last year I have had problems connecting to many users on the WPN. It has gotten much worse over the last 4 months or so. I'm able to connect to some users with no problem, but I have noticed that I'm unable to establish a connection with the same user's time & time again. I've set port forwarding rules for WinMX, but it has done nothing to remedy this problem. It's like there firewalled on their end, and maybe they can only establish connections on certain ports. I'm not sure what the problem is. After leaving WinMx running for 1 day I have about 40 to 50 of the following error messages below. Is anyone else getting the same 2 error messages with such frequency?
