I assume gift is a peer to peer of sorts file transfer thingy? It's possible it's your firewall, or perhaps a setting int he program itself. The gui will have no effect on it's connections.

Have you configured your "/home/princeware/.giFT/gift.conf" file ?

Files or directories with a name begining with dot "." are hidden. In your home directory you will find a bunch of them.

In that config file notice the first paragraph:
# Boolean determining whether or not this file has been reviewed and is
# complete. giFT will fail to start unless this is non-zero. This is done
# so that we can make sure you, at the very least, read through this file.
# Default: 0
setup = 1
Make sure you set a '1' on it and configure the rest of the file.
