    i am living in a college dorm and i cant connect to limewire anymore. and when i go back home it works fine so i know its not anything with my computer. is there anything that you think could be causing this and how would i get around it?

    The argument is not over which program is better/newer. (limewire vs. frostwire) The point,which Auslander already made, was that the administrator at bennyt10's campus has blocked the ports required for p2p apps to work. So it isnt the program thats at fault its the college faculty.

    If your running Limewire it's the same If you uninstall Lime you will have to install Frost at least that's what happen to me I tried to reinstall Lime and it would not finish that last step for install

    Not 100% sure if it will work but i've heard of some college students using proxy switch with success for downloading p2p files.

    only works if there's a machine out there that you trust to filter all your data (and i don't trust any machine that isn't my own); plus, you have to know a lot about what basically amounts to hacking to get it to work.

    ummm, typical rule is post in a way that most people understand or don't post at all, at least in serious topics.

    In all good fun, just trying to bring out a point that the best way to learn sometimes is to experiment on your own. If you reveal all the answers to questions then people don't use their head for nothing but a coat rack, lol.

    still not sure what your exact point from your original response was, but maybe that's the sleep deprivation.

    we're here to answer questions...if people ask a question to which the answer is blatantly obvious or is something they just need to read to find out, instead of being spoonfed, they get the typical "google is your friend" response.
