Question about Computers & Internet
I need help onblocking limewire i dosent let me connect because its behind a firewall how do i onbloked limewire to make it work again thank you I have Norton 360 premier addition and I have gone in and allowed both Lime Wire and Music ECT> to allow but I am still showing fire wall with only 1 out of 4 or 5 bars showing green
If you have recently got a new router, there would be a firewall on the router blocking the required ports for LimeWire to operate. To get around this, refer to your Router's user manual and find out how to access it and then unblock those certain ports. PLEASE NOTE: Do not attempt to unblock all the ports as this will increase the risk of getting your router and perhaps your computers infected with viruses.
If that is not your problem, you may be using and ISP (Internet Service Provider) that has blocked those ports as downloading music uses a lot of bandwidth which is a burden on them. If you have Satellite Internet, this is probably the case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and negotiating a price for them to unblock the port for you.
Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.
