Limewire not working anymore . Not connecting. Have PN block

I have been using Limewire to download . About four months ago I was successfully using Limewire to download, but about two months ago it stopped connecting every time I tried to use it. Now it is not connecting at all.

A few days ago I paid a company to enable me to download music and movies and they have told me to use Limewire (basic) to download from their server. I duly installed Limewire again and guess what - it still does'nt connect.

Have PN blocked this in any way ? I have disabled Norton Internet Security 2005 and there are no other firewalls enabled and have checked on my Linksys router to see that there are no restrictions.

If anybody can help me with this , it would be much appreciated.

Cheers
Ian

Hello runner378,

What do you mean when you say check your java? Do you mean something to do with IE6 or something else , and if so how do I go about it ?

Click on this link.
This will take you to the download page, where you can find the latest version.
Download that, then have another try.

gardeni - This is most likely because you are on a Home Surf account, which does block File Sharing applications such as Limewire.

You will need to upgrade to a Premier account to use Limewire I'm afraid.

Ben,

Limewire had been working ok up until a couple of months ago so it was'nt being blocked before. What has changed?

I thought that P2P was available on the other packages (i.e BB+) just to quote:

"lower priority to high usage services such as downloading and file sharing"

So are you saying they are now blocked? So lower actually means none?

I have been using Limewire on BB+ - just very slowly. It's why I upgraded to Premier. It did work OK though...

gardeni: PlusNet have stated that they've improved the P2P blocking measures that were in place, which is why certain services that used to work don't anymore.

As smilee says, P2P software will work on Broadband Plus, but it is given a lower priority - so you will most likely see reduced speeds. Whereas on Premier this is not the case, so speeds are much higher.

James,

Thank you for the info about java. I have been trying to download it , but have been experiencing disconnects. This has been occuring for the past few days , where it would disconnect for about 5 mins. and then reconnect.

I am now able download the file.
