Music download problem

By pandpdisco ·
Using Win XP. Having difficulty using 3 different softwares for music file swapping. My internet is working fine (DSL); however when I try to connect to WinMX, Shareaza or won't connect. The Firewall 'appears' to be turned off (maybe someone could advise if I have done this properly?) and it is not blocked at the Provider's Firewall. The programs were working fine for 2 weeks but just stopped working for some unknown reason! If anyone knows even one of these softwares well or has seen it before PLEASE let me know. I can send further details to you if necessary.

To be honest, the peers here do not condone or support downloading copyrighted materials.

Very few of us use any of these services.

It is VERY possible that your ISP has decided to block the ports for these services.

This would protect both you and them from lawsuits by the RIAA.

Unless all that you are doing is sharing material that is in the public domain, I suggest that you save yourself some grief, and forget about using the file sharing services.

As a side note:

You only need to post your question in a single forum.

Only if you do not get any usable answers should you consider reposting in a different forum.
