P2P on PlusNet

I am trying to use Limewire (for legal purposes of course) but cannot connect on my PlusNet connection. I can connect on my BT Broadband connection. Any ideas?

P2P on PlusNet

What product are you on? If it's the old legacy homesurf account then it does not allow P2P traffic.

Have you enabled surf on the account (under connection settings) which disables P2P/Usenet/FTP.

You shoul dhave the leat amount of restrictions with that account so it's not that.

Do other P2P clients work? This at least will prove if some form of P2P blocking is in place (which is unlikely).

Other than that, have you setup the proper port forwarding in your router to allow limewire to work?

Other P2P

I have also tried using Piolet and UseNext and no luck. Maybe its the router not port forwading properly.

Look at this guide to check how to forward ports properly.

some P2P clients such as utorrent and azureus have a test under the Tools section that the port forwarding is done correctly. Have a look and see if there's one on limewire.
