Limewire firewall Seemingly out of nowhere, a firewall has come up on Limewire. I have tried unblocking Windows and Norton, reloading Limewire and nothing helps. I even updated to Limewire Pro and still can not get in. Any suggestions?

Hi amy_maguires

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 Satelite Internet, this is probably the case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and negotiating a price for them to unplock the port for you.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Happy Easter

There are some flash games i cant play. my flash play is up to date but i was told it could be my fire wall how do i fix it???


If these games are online in-browser games DO NOT DISABLE YOUR FIREWALL!!! Browser games do not need you to disable your firewall. Disabling your firewall is like putting out a welcome mat for hackers and spyware. Are you sure you've updated to the latest flash player. Go to the Adobe website and check if your version is the same as the latest available download. Version 10.2 is available at the moment.

I tryed to put Norton security on my new Toshiba Mar. 23 2010 Went through the hold thing even gave my credit card info.Got a e-mail Cogratulation me with all the correct info. I made a phone call later...


I could never recommend Norton. It's bloated, inefficient and tries to take control of your computer away from you.

Save yourself some frustration and try something else.

Windows' built-in firewall isn't bad--especially in Windows 7. Comodo firewall with antivirus--free version-- is efficient, but needs a lot of manual permissions.

I've been using Aviva anti-virus--free version--for years and am quite happy with it.

Round things off with Spybot.

You can have these programs up and running in no time, without cost.

You can remove the awful Norton things in Control panel> add/remove programs.

Good Luck!

Go onto your control panel and then go onto your firewall and disable it from blocking both frostwire and limewire. Dr Reed

I can not get into poker on face book looked on several websites with no help please help me unblock firewall port 9339


You will need to obtain information from the manufacturer of the Router if you are behind one and if you are running a software firewall such as Norton 360, you will need to get instruction on how to configure Norton to allow access on that port.

Norton Firewall Difficlty


I suggest not using norton. Goto www.avast.com and use the Free home-edition. Set your windows firewall back to defaults after norton is uninstalled.

Make sure to have Avast scan every file on your system. You very well maybe infected.

Please do not think norton is all that great because you payed for it. Get Avast.

G'luck
