LowID blues SOS

Postby punkmaister » 15 Nov 2012 19:54

Lately even though I have the port 6346 configured and all I keep getting low ID connections and more worrisome still some of the Edonnkey servers now give you the message that any IP that ends in zero automatically gets a low ID, this again is very recent up until before yesterday I could get HighiD ED2 connections, that however is no longer the case.

Have you done a connection test? Could you post the results here?

Well that's what so strange I run the test I got this result.
Results
TCP: The TCP connection has been accepted by your computer and the request has been answered. This means that other clients from the networks can properly connect to you.
UDP: No answer has been received from your client. This can have various reasons, like that your firewall or router isn't properly configured for Shareaza, or Shareaza is not running on this port, or not connecting to the networks.
At least one problem has been detected and you probably have to configure your firewall or router for Shareaza. If you need help with configuring your firewall or router, visit this page on the wiki: FAQ: Routers/Firewalls.


But the DSL modem/Wifi Router is already configured for port 6346 for both TCP and UDP protocols.

A game or application is made of one or more TCP/UDP port ranges. Each incoming port range can be translated into a different internal (local network) port range. Port ranges can be statically assigned to devices or dynamically assigned using an outgoing trigger.



Protocol Port Range Translate To ... Trigger Protocol Trigger Port



TCP 6346 - 6346 6346 - 6346 UDP 6346


I've also contacted our ISP and they are not blocking ports to customers either,

So what on Earth is going on here? :( :?: :?

Maybe you have forgotten some minuscule step... You could try to refollow this guide for your router to make sure such has not happened: http://portforward.com/english/applicat ... aindex.htm

Also you could try to disable your firewall and anti virus and try the connection test again. Maybe one of your security programs is responsible for the issues you're seeing.

Hmm the modem we are using is not listed there.

Technicolor TG582n

The Antivirus I use Avira has never given any problems and it doesn't have an option to exclude programs also I'm using the free version which does not have Web protection.

Frankly I'm stumped but it''s the error that I keep getting that any IP ending in 0 automatically receives a low ID don't panic message that gets me. If the protocol has been changed so everybody with an IP ending in gets a LowID regardless it has to the dumbest and stupidest move ever by the Edonkey protocol programmers.

Here's the error in full.
[22:37:09] ED2K[193.169.86.73] WARNING : Your ip (64.237.243.0) ends with a 0. The edonkey protocol assigns a LOWID to you. It's OK, dont panic !

This is due to the way IDs are calculated. In theory, service providers shouldn't use IPs ending with 0, so the eD2k protocol designed the way the ID is calculated in a way that IPs ending with 0 would generate a low ID. However, a lot of service providers don't follow the rules, so you're getting a low ID.

As for your router, a quick google search shows it has an integrated firewall. Try disabling it. The firewall of my router was blocking Shareaza even though I forwarded the respective port for UDP usage because it detected a DDoS on that port (probably because of the large number of UDP packets).

At the EDonkey forums they told me to turn off my modem/router for at least 15 minuted and that dd the trick so you are right some ISPs don't follow the rules and sadly my ISP is one of them. Thanks for all the help by all means pass the information on turning off the router for 15 minutes so the ISP resets the connection hopefuly with an IP not ending in 0.

So they are telling you exactly the same as I did.

Have you had luck disabling your router's firewall?

The firewall is disabled by default. Now I can get a HighID connection but usually have to re-connect to a EDK2 server to do so as it always seem to start off with a LowID connection.
