Re: cannot serve files with omenserve

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Windstream disabled your peer-to-peer file sharing capabilities on purpose. Then they had a team of lawyers write the terms that give them many rights and give you few-to-none. Read carefully through the "Terms of Service" and "Acceptable Use" policies, available via links on the bottom of the Windstream web site. The quoted excerpts at the bottom of this message are only a few examples of these "agreements" that they've written and that you signed off on when you got their service. Windstream has made a numbers of things legal for themselves in their Service Agreement, and stated VERY simply they are as follows: =- You're not allowed to share files considered illegal, such as copyrighted media. =- You're not allowed to use a P2P client, or any other software that provides a server or sharing service. =- You're not allowed to use software that keeps itself connected after being interrupted. =- You're not allowed to use an IRC bot, or do anything other than simple "chat" on IRC. =- You're not allowed to try and change their installation software or alter how it's set up. =- If you terminate your contract early they have the right to bill you for at least $200. =- They're allowed to investigate your actions in any way if they decide they want to. =- They're allowed to terminate your service at any time. =- They're allowed to bill you a minimum of $500 if you violate any of these or dozens of other restrictions. Sorry to tell you this, but it looks as though you don't have any choice in the matter. I'm not a lawyer, but that's certainly the way it looks. Technically speaking, the only solution to this problem would be to use an entirely separate computer for your satellite connection. This is just my personal opinion, but I wouldn't go anywhere near that installer software. To alter it or otherwise. Sorry. Wish I could say something else to you about this... :\ ************************************** "The Acceptable Use Policy generally provides that you may not use our Internet access Service to (1) engage in illegal activity, (2) violate the network policies of any network accessed through our Service or (3) engage in any activity that interferes with other Internet users?..." "You agree that the phone on which your Windstream Service is activated may not be used to access any third-party services equivalent to Services provided..." "Your Windstream Internet account may only be used according to your service plan. Unlimited Access accounts may not be used as "dedicated" connections..." "The use of automated intervention-such as software or hardware devices-for the purpose of maintaining a connection to the service is strictly prohibited..." "You may not use IRC bots, or violate any policy of an IRC server, when using our service, including use of IRC-based telephony and videoconferencing..." "Using any manual or electronic means to circumvent any restrictions placed on your phone or to modify without authorization any programming supplied on your phone is a violation of your Agreement..." "We reserve the right to investigate any Internet usage that we believe may violate this Acceptable Use Policy, our Terms and Conditions Agreement for service, or any applicable laws or regulations..." "If such conduct results in damages to Windstream, you may be required to reimburse Windstream for such damages including legal fees, subject to a minimum fee of $500.00..."

Is it possible

Hi, yes it is possible but it is not a good solution. If you are using Windows XP try configuring network using network wizard to configure as "this computer connects to the internet through another computer".
This setting does not always work straight away as you usually have to set up firewall.
AWith this set up the computer connected to the modem will act as a proxy, repeating the signal on the other computer.
This solution will make navigation slower, force you to keep low firewall defences.
Best thing to do is buying a modem or modem router and build network using a router.

Multiplayer ip

If you need to open ports on your router just follow the manual. If you need one just add a comment and I'll get right back to you. If this doesn't work do the same. Go slow and follow instructions. This should fix your problems. Keep track of what you do so it can be undone to start fresh just in case this doesn't work but it should.

GameSpy Arcade is 100% reliant on your Internet connection being fully functional. The same holds true for any games that you want to play online against other people. Firewalls and proxy servers are designed to block your Internet connection in order to minimize the chances that your computer will be accessed (or hacked!) by "unwanted visitors." They also have the unfortunate side-effect of disabling many of the things you might want to do online -- like play games -- since these activities depend on your PC making an unimpeded connection to other computers. Therefore, if you are using a firewall or proxy, Arcade may not function properly nor will you be able to download and install all of the files that you need in order to use the software to play games online.

Connecting to different places online requires access through "ports" in your PC's Internet connection, and firewalls and proxies will close certain ports for your protection. This is not always necessary, but you as the firewall/proxy owner are the only one who can open those ports. We can't do it for you - but we can give you some tips on how to configure your firewall / proxy to allow Arcade to work properly.

What is a firewall or proxy?
Firewalls and proxies are software programs or pieces of hardware designed to protect your computer and/or network from Internet intruders. Some of these are:
  • Windows XP Firewall
  • Norton Internet Security
  • Tiny Personal Firewall
  • Zonealarm
  • Sygate (proxy)
  • Wingate (proxy)
  • Internet Connection Sharing aka ICS - provided by Windows 98SE and higher (proxy)
  • Linksys Routers (hardware firewall)
  • D-Link Routers (hardware firewall)
  • Cisco Routers (hardware firewall)

Working Around the Firewall / Proxy

If you are behind a firewall/proxy and are able to change its settings, Arcade needs the following TCP ports open in order to function:
  • 6667 (IRC)
  • 3783 (Voice Chat Port)
  • 27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
  • 28900 (Master Server List Request)
  • 29900 (GP Connection Manager)
  • 29901 (GP Search Manager)
  • 13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
  • 6515 (Dplay UDP)
  • 6500 (Query Port)

    Disabling firewalls will not work
    Unfortunately, in most cases, firewalls/proxies cannot simply be disabled in order to allow you to use Arcade and your game. Disabling the firewall / proxy will not open the necessary ports. It will simply shut down the firewall/proxy and leave the ports closed. Also, many factors may conflict with your firewall: Internet Connection Sharing, the use of more than one firewall, or your operating system may all cause conflicts that keep you from enjoying Arcade.
  • Special notes to Windows XP users:
    Windows XP has a built-in firewall. If you are using 3rd party firewalls/proxies with Windows XP, you will have to consult both the firewall/proxy developer and Microsoft to determine their compatibility with one another. You will also need to speak to your game's developer in order to determine the game's compatibility with WindowsXP, its firewall and your 3rd party firewall/proxy.

    Disabling / Setting Permissions on Specific Firewall Programs

    We do not recommend disabling your firewall. Disabling it will not make it open up the ports it has already closed. Instead, you need to configure it to allow access to Arcade. This is usually called "giving permission," and can be accomplised quickly by following these steps:

  • Windows XP Service Pack 2 -- The built-in firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP will affect two areas of your Arcade experience: 1) Arcade itself (including the login process, using PlayerSpy, chat, using the Download Manager and playing games) and 2) Hosting any parlor or peer-to-peer games. In order to use Arcade and play games properly with Windows XP, you should follow these steps:

    1) Unblocking GameSpy Arcade During Login: Click the "Unblock" button in the Windows XP firewall prompt the first time you attempt to log into Arcade atfer installing Service Pack 2

    2) Unblocking GameSpy Arcade via Control Panel: If you forgot to click "Unblock" in Step 1, or if you want to be ahead of the curve, you can configure the XP firewall to unblock Arcade via the Windows Control Panel. To do this: Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Windows Firewall. In the Windows Firewall menu, Click on the Exceptions tab. If GameSpy Arcade is not listed, Click on the Add Program button, find GameSpy Arcade on the list of available programs and click the OK button.

    3) Unblocking Your Games: This can be done in one of two ways: a) Either wait for Windows to prompt you to unblock the game and click the Unblock button (this usually happens the first time you attempt to host a game after installing Service Pack 2, or; b) Use the Windows Control Panel to add the game to your list of Exceptions, using the same method listed in step 2 above.

    4) Unblocking Ports: You can take the unblocking process a step further by instructing Windows to open the Firewall to all ports used by GameSpy Arcade and most of its supported games. To do this: Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Windows Firewall. From the Windows Firewall Menu, click on the Exceptions tab, then click on the Add Ports button. From the Add Ports Menu, enter a port from the list of ports at the top of this Arcade support page. Be sure to indicate whether this is a UDP or TCP port (the list above should indicate which it is).
