Template for Downloading and Searching issues

Post by GargoyleMT » 2006-01-04 11:22

This is a work in progress template for people with issues downloading and searching. The questions are going to be in order of importance.

Are you behind a NAT/home router?
Check by comparing the IP from cmd /k ipconfig to the one given by http://www.whatismyip.com.

Are you running a software firewall?
If you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can probably find the name of your firewall under "Security Center" in the Control Panel. Expand the Firewall section by clicking on the double-downward-facing-arrow.

Moderators: please add to this as you see fit. Probably fewer questions are better, to maximize the chance we get useful information.
