Probably your modem or your router got NAT enabled.You need to get that thing to forward the ports to the box you use.

check out the emule faq and look under firewalls and routers. The linkys one works for most linkys routers.

Try mldonkey.I don't know if it is just me but when I tested lmule (unmaintained now) and xmule they where both buggy and slow and with a certain amount of downloads they would just crash and die.mldonkey is faster for some downloads because it also downloads from overnet and that works pretty good if the file is available there.If it is only on the edonkey network you are also dead meat.One of these days I'll check if the original emule is any faster.
BTW - I downloaded 12 gig in 6 days with mldonkey and lowid

Well, I just wanted to ask for something: I'm using xmule when I work on Linux and emule when I work on Windows and I can continue downloading the same files (resume) regardless using one or another, can I do the same with mldonkey??

Cheers mates!

Nah - it's possible but not practical in your situation.I did switch from xmule to mldonkey and resumed the downloads but it is a pain in the ass to do it.Basically I had to download edonkey for Linux and put all the started d/l's in there and let it rehash them.After that put them into mldonkey and recover temp.There might be an easier way.
Just curious: Do you see any difference in speed between the Windows and Linux versions?

I think that depends on the day, as somedays xmule goes faster than emule and others the way round. So, in my opinion more or less the same. The only thing works better in Windows is the graphical interface is a little bit more achieved... However I think that emule can't download from people using xmule because I've never seen that when using it.

Question: I get my system hung up when I leave xmule working alone for a long time and I'm almost sure that is xmule's fault. It seems it enters in a neverending loop in that cases. Do you have any idea why that is happenig?

Got no idea - everything went fine for me until I added some more downloads.Then it went crashing and didn't work after I got rid of all downloads either.Didn't check it out because there are just too many things that can go wrong - the WX thing and xmule itself.Where to start?
That was the reason I went back to mldonkey (and for overnet of course) - that thing never crashes.Had it running for 2 weeks nonstop one time.But there are others that are not that lucky.
