There is many potential firewalls in the typical home that may prevent LimeWire from accessing the service.

The computer with LimeWire is the first place to check. If using Windows, there is a built in firewall with access rules. If you have a Internet Security Suite such as Norton 360, then it will need to be configured to allow access. Next is the router or firewall if you use one. The manufactured of the device will have documents on their website that explain how to configure the device for port forwarding. If this is the case make sure the ports associated with LimeWire are forwarded correctly.

After that may be the modem itself as many modems such as ones used for DSL are multipurpose devices and make use of a built in firewall & modem. Search your internet service provider for files related to access and configuration of your modem.

If all this is setup and it still does not work, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have blocked the ports specific to LimeWire and many other peer to peer file sharing networks (P2P) such as Bit Torrent. If the traffic is blocked by the ISP there is little that can be done.

Oky i have a program called limewire to download music it worked fine.but then one day it said it needs java 6.0 or above.i did that but it said the same thing!!!!!!!!!!! what can i do.all ready tried...


I know you are looking to download music from limewire, but you are infected with either malware, spyware, PUPS, trojans, keyloggers, or other forms of tracking.

If it says it still needs java, check with spybot search and destroy v1.62 from safernetworking.org. Put the software into usage tracking.

Even with the best internet security, you will need to add this program if you have enough RAM so you can have it running all the time.

The software is asking you for java because it can't install because the system is infected.

What type of antivirus security are you also running? This is the biggest question that I am always asked.

If you need help cleaning out the system so you can install java and fix the overall system, just post another question.

Firewall and limewire


Dear ckclee,
Just uninstall your new limewire and restart your computer. try to re-install the old version of your "work-fine-Limewire". If it doesn't work, the only way is go to start menu, browse the accessories, carefully choose "SYSTEM RESTORE". when it runnng.. pick the date which your computer work best, the restart it, remember... windows can only restore and set back time status not more than a week, according to my experience.
Good Luck

Limewire firewall


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

Limewire wont connect


What firewalls you have, Look for yours here for instructions on how to configure it to allow both LW & Java full access: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/firewalls.shtml

Update your Java: http://www.limewire.com/english/cont...radejava.shtml

Delete the LW Preferences folder called .limewire (whilst LW is closed!) & found here: Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP: C:/Documents And Settings/your_username/.limewire OR for Windows 98 / ME: "C:\My Documents"

But keep keep in mind once you delete your LW Preferences folder you will need to reset all your LW option settings so you might want to make a note of them 1st.

Ares 2.0.9


ares is just like limewire. if your ares cant connect, you can always try limewire instead.

just do some tweaking with your firewall. that may be the cause why ares cant connect. it means that the port ares is using is blocked.

Open a port for a certain program


hi mike,

this router has its own firewall, although i don't think its a good idea to turn off the firewall

google the port that limewire uses and then use portforwarding on the router.

you can start by turning off the firewall on the router to see if it works. if it does then perrhaps just allow limewire to passthrough your firewall at the router.

good luck
