What happens when you traceroute to the machine you are trying to connect to? Does it complete?
Yeah I thought it was odd that a firewall would be there in the first place. No, no connections every complete in Gnutella. I also tired GLMonkey, but that shows no signs of activity either. I downloaded gIFT and Apollon as well, but whenever I start Apollon it cranks on its command line a little and everything looks fine, then when the GUI loads it immediately exits.
(That seems to happen to me a lot with various Linux programs
). Would there be some kind of hostname or other setting I need to change in the P2P apps? Bit torrent works fine by the way and shows no sign of a firewall, making the situation even more
Thanks for your help though David. I'm happy to find that I don't have a firewall active
