Default problem with winmx

I have got a problem with winmx, i can download from users, but people cannot upload from me.

It is a pain since people think i am not willing to share stuff.

Most of the time there is a setting that disables uploading, check the preferences and if its checked, take it off.

I tried and checked, it seems that i have shared my folder
but there are no uploads from my machine.

i am attaching my settings, do you think it could be a firewall setting, if it is, can you please advise on how to proceed.

all incoming connections get the following message

Timed out(waiting for incoming connections ....)

I frequently run into the same thing, usually restarting the computer will help a bit, but I suspect the firewall, I use ZA Pro and it is very tempermental with WinMX.

If you are like I am and are lacking in the "technical skills" department, but at the same time, miss using WinMX, there is a quick, easy and free solution it is called MXPIE. There is no spyware or anything else bundled with it. For those a little more savvy and courageous, there is even a manual option.

So come on back to WinMX, and download to your hearts content. Thanks to these updates, not even the power of the RIAA can stop a network.

IF you have downloaded WinMX and still cannot connect, you can even get personalized realtime help. Just go to this link WinMX Channels Copy the Room name appropriate for your Language and paste it into your WinMX chat screen, then press the Join Button. This works on version 3.53 and up even if you are not connected. It allows you to join into chatrooms set up for you to get immediate help.

Everything you need at the MXPIE Website Free and Spyware free.

I have also found a site for Computer problem that is nice, prompt and VERY helpful. If there is a problem you need an answer to, they can help.

Realtime help available for WinMX 3.53 users having trouble getting connected. Go to WinMX Channels.
